Camping should be fun but many campsites are less fun. Too crowded, too regulated, too artificial et cetera.
So we do it a bit differently, more in the way we ourselves would like to be hosted. Also not always a success but alas. However, the shower with a view is spacious enough and when it raisn we have our cosy 'mancave' were you can chat with other guests cook on the wood fired oven and sit at the table.
Naturally we don't have a snack bar but we gladly cook for you, from breakfast upto supper. If you like a campfire, feel free.
If you aren't 'tent material' we also have a cosy caravan and a very basic dormitory.
Our plot consists of a longish stretch at the foot of a river dike with three buildings. Apart from the house, there is a cabin (my old age mother lives there) and the 'woodshed'. After the shed, the you can camp under the fruit and nut trees - in the past this area was used for growing hemp. Further to the South a wooded area, mainly willows. Here you'll find some more secluded spots for pitching a tent.
When sleeping in a tent is too survivalist in your opinion you may opt for the vintage mobile home or the Bazipzeehok. Both equiped with matresses and both meeting our standards in terms of 'different from the rest'.
But our guests report wholesome nights, the covers and sheets are specless and there's an ample supply of towels.
And lodgers are entitled to a sumptuous breakfast with freshy pressed orange juice, bread, warm from the oven, tea, espresso etc.
Supper is an option we highly recommend.
We hate claustrofobic showers so ours is both spacious and offers a view (if you don't like exposed showering you may consider to lower the blinds and even close the outside door).
The toilet has recently been genderneutralized and is - also in every other respect fully functional.
Cooking your meal on a ferocious petrol burner is part of the camping experience. However, if you wish to explore cooking techniques you may try the muurikka or the ancient wood fired stove, the wood burning bread/pizza oven or the ceramic barbecue.
The lazy way is another option supper will cost you €10 (excl. drinks) breakfast is €5. And then there are restaurants in the vicinity at a distance.
If you are self supporting in terms of cooking you may use our cooling facilities and/or ask us to do your shopping (not always a possibility).
We also keep supplies of food stuffs, drinks, things you may have forgotten, lost or ou have run out of like fuel, band aid, batteries, toothpaste..
As Dutch as Holland can get and Amsterdam is nearby. When you think of Holland and you see all the cliché's (cows, windmills, willows, ditches, placid rivers, storks), your are really, really right. Amsterdam needs no explanation, a very different world on a small hour's drive. Kinderdijk (Unesco World Heritage) is on the same dike (20 kilometers) so cannot be missed.
