Martenastate is a (former) ‘State’ (distinguished historic house) surrounded by a canal and ponds and an English style landscape park. The original State was demolished in 1899 and replaced by a small distinguished house in neo-Renaissance style. The building is not accessible, the park is freely accessible.

With its very rich variety of Stinzenplants it is considered as one of the richest Stinzenflora Estates of Fryslân. Species that are very common are: Snowdrop, Dutch crocus, Bulbous Corydalis, Yellow Anemone, Wild tulip, Double Meadow Saxifrage, Lords-and-Ladies (Adders tongue, Arum maculatum).

The estate also includes a burial mound with graves of noble residents, where Stinzenplants are also present, and a nature camping site.
