Fantastic place to stay. Peace, nice reception, enough space, but….. take into account a cold shower. Taken literally. This is clearly stated in the description. Electricity is only for charging a phone. Continue GREAT!!!!

Take such a black shower tray with you, so that you can take a nice shower at the end of the day.

Tell us about your experience
This is the second time we have chosen this location. The plan was to "Bush-craft" with a young nephew for an evening, but unfortunately he became ill.
My partner Sandra was willing to come in despite her recovering knee.

We made it a fun day, evening and morning. The wind was quite strong so we found shelter again in the lovely bush at the end of the plot. Awesome!

We have made recordings for our next Youtube video. Hope you can take a look
at our channel: 2 Small Adventurers
Of course we agreed with Klaas to leave everything tidy again.

It was quiet that weekend, but there are plenty of facilities for those who want it a bit more luxurious. Nice Sauna and perfect pitches.

How was the contact with the host?
That went perfectly again, a small text message before my arrival and Klaas arrived immediately and got to know my partner. Furthermore, very relaxed. Talked to his wife again about the great location.

Nice and nice people.

Tips for new guests?
I assume that everyone has their own need for their own form of recreation. One thing is paramount, it is real nature with peace and quiet and surrounded by meadows.

Exactly what I was looking for. A place in nature with the possibility to camp back to basics. Since the closure of the "Pole campsites" in the woods, I have been looking for where you can still enjoy a primitive stay. Cook your own pot over a small fire with a tarp. That was possible and I could pick the place myself. I chose a Beech grove that offered some protection against the wind that was present that day.
Of course I had agreed with Klaas to leave everything tidy again.
I have also seen that there are sufficient facilities for those who want something more luxurious. Nice Sauna and perfect pitches.
I tried to make a nice video for our Youtube channel 2 Small Adventurers

Ran perfectly, a small text message before my arrival and Klaas arrived immediately and showed me around. Furthermore, very relaxed. Also talked to his wife about the great location.

Wonderful place for an overnight stay! The garden is beautiful, with lots of greenery and a forest in the back where you can take a walk. It was wonderfully quiet, we were the only ones during our stay. The facilities were clean and the sauna in combination with the cold outdoor shower is enjoyable!

How was the contact with the host?
Klaas was very friendly and helpful and gave us a short tour of his garden. Later he brought some wood so we could make a campfire and the flexible check-in and check-out times are very nice.

We have stayed here for a few nights for the 2nd time. You can choose where you want to pitch your tent. It is wonderfully quiet and very green. You can BBQ there. There is a dog, cats and a lot of insects (mosquitoes but also dragonflies, caterpillars, grasshoppers).
The toilet is cleaned regularly and there is a cold shower. There is also a room for washing dishes. We really enjoyed it again!

We mainly had contact with Klaas. He is very cordial and has a sense of humor.

Very nice place where you will be surprised by the space. A huge garden with a unique forest where you can walk through and pitch your tent. Very cozy! There is a cozy campfire place with a view of horses in the meadows. The facilities are fine with a (normal) toilet, sinks with cold water and possibly a cold outdoor shower + of course the sauna for enthusiasts that you can close in combination with the shower because of other guests.
Please note; you have a little less privacy when you come with your van. I was standing in a row with three other vans. The A59 can be heard quite well.

Our stay with Judith and Klaas was extremely pleasant. The site itself is lovely with various possible spaces to camp depending on your preference: field, forest, by the pond or next to a campfire. There was a clean toilet, a washing area, a cold outdoor shower and some phone charging points. In the fields next door were some lovely cows and horses, and we also had the occasional visit from our host's charming dog, who was at all times quiet, friendly and never a nuisance to us or our food. Judith and Klaas were super helpful, communicative and accommodating, lending us chairs, a bicycle and an umbrella at different points during our stay. They made us feel very welcome and were able to direct us to nice places nearby and also gave a helpful little information sheet at the start of our stay. I would gladly stay here again and recommend the site to others.

How was the contact with the host?
Contact with the host was excellent, we were in contact with Klaas by text during our stay and he responded promptly and helpfully whenever we had any questions.

It was a windy day. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay immensely. The peace and natural environment makes you completely relaxed. Everything is very clearly organized. Water supply, shower, separating waste….We were also allowed to use chairs and benches. In better weather we would certainly have sailed with the boat on the pond. Nice experience.

How was the contact with the host?
Friendly and clear reception. On arrival, the hostess gave us an extensive tour together with Sip the dog. They were very hospitable and cordial. Klaas also briefly came to have a chat. We had a nice contact. Too bad we couldn't say goodbye.

Tips for new guests?
Enjoy the tranquility and immerse yourself in nature.

What a gem this Campspace in Den Hout is. Beautiful places, good facilities and Judith and Klaas are very nice and interested owners. The pitches are very spacious, at a sufficient distance from each other, and offer a lot of privacy. The plot has many idyllic spots and a mini lake where the owner allows you to float with the boat. We were very happy with the fire pit and for only five euros Klaas provides you with a wheelbarrow with wood. Had a wonderful weekend, will definitely come back. Thank you for your hospitality!

Klaas, Judith and Siep, the dog, welcomed us very kindly at their beautiful camp space. They have made their well-maintained garden available with 2 camping pitches, where campers have plenty of space and sufficient privacy to enjoy. Good to know:

- Toilet, toilet paper and water available. And for the luxury camper: a sauna! (for a fee)
- There is a very clear instruction available on arrival
- Bring your own paint-free wood, or buy firewood from the host
- If you want to use the (cold) shower, bring biodegradable soap
- Take another round in the garden. There is a beautiful fire pit, a bird hide and a small piece of forest.

We enjoyed it!

Unbelievable amount of space! There is a gigantic lawn, where you can pitch your tent, relax, play badminton, frisbee, etc. The neighbor has cows and they are grazing next to the lawn. The hosts also have a small grove, with a nice walking path and a pond. The toilet is totally fine. There are outside (not covered) washbasins for eg.
your dishes or to brush your teeth. The outdoor shower is cold, but totally fine in the summer. The hosts are friendly and make time for a chat. The rules and possibilities are well explained. Had a wonderful stay.

Furthermore, the shower was nice and fresh, because cold, there was a separate clean toilet and a sink.
Just like a real campsite, but all to ourselves.
The hostess and host were super friendly and the dog very enthusiastic!
