Farm camping in the Eifel

Quiet meadow close to nature with a view of our Heidschnuckenweide. The farm is on the outskirts of Wachendorf, at the foot of the northern Eifel and is a wonderful starting point for relaxation in nature. With us you will find space on a spacious meadow with an unobstructed view of the landscape, a fire in the evening, products from our Heidschnucke and chilled drinks. We look forward to you!

The listed Vierkanthof in the Eifel is home to our manufactory for tuned chimes. Here you get an insight into the production of the handmade chimes.

Our factory shop is also located in the yard. We sell our own ringing products as well as gongs and singing bowls, selected gifts, a diverse range of poinsettias and products from our Heidschnucke sheep.

More offers:
- Washer/dryer per load: €5
- Waste disposal only possible with waste separation (residual waste 3€)

Place is wonderfully quiet. Farm is being renovated, so you are a bit among the construction junk.

How was the contact with the host?
Ernst was very difficult about where we could pitch our tent. Kept hammering on an allotted spot. This was really unpleasant.

Tips for new guests?
Make very clear agreements about what can and cannot be done with Ernst. He is certainly helpful, but likes to keep all control.

Beautiful, spacious place. The welcome was somewhat unpleasant. Ideal if you want to be on your own.

How was the contact with the host?
The start was a little less pleasant. I had driven the car and caravan onto the field. The host was clearly not happy with this and wished we had waited at the entrance due to tire tracks in the grass. I get his point and immediately pointed that out. The fact that he kept repeating this emphatically 3 to 4 times made the welcome unpleasant. The host pointed out a sign with instructions at the entrance. This sign is a laminated A4 sheet on a tree, which is impossible to read from the car and easy to miss. The sparse contact with the host was otherwise okay.

Tips for new guests?
Wait at the entrance of the field ;)

October 2022 · Translated from dutch

Host Ernst has responded

Thanks for the feedback.
But I would like to correct it briefly:
1. It is not a field but a mowed lawn which should only be driven on if absolutely necessary, especially in the current season.
2. The information sign does not hang from a tree, but hangs on an extra post, on a solid oak support board, directly on the paved driveway and has not yet been overlooked.
3. The sign is easily readable from the car.
4. In the instructions to avoid misunderstandings, which every guest is sent before they come to us, this instruction is also very clear.
5. The fact that I repeated this several times was due to the obvious lack of understanding of my request, which is also clearly reflected here in the feedback.
Yes, we have very clear rules here at the farm, but they are simple and clear and are communicated in advance. This is the only way we can maintain the quality and beauty of our near-natural pitches. The sum of the many very positive reviews shows us clearly how attractive our pitches are.

Hello everyone, I was alone on the site with three pitches. I liked the place. From here I was able to start some hikes. I was greeted in a friendly manner by Ernst Friedrich, who also stopped by in between.

How was the contact with the host?
Very good and friendly.

Tips for new guests?
Vl have a few sand herrings with you. The place is already a bit free and they are really useful in a storm. And there isn't much shade there.

Tell us about your experience
Staying with Ernst should have been our last stop of our motorhome holiday. Unfortunately, that turned out to be slightly different and we left after a few hours, after we felt that we were not treated correctly by the owner.

It was our first time traveling with a motorhome and we were looking forward to the region where Ernst's campsite was located.

At the previous campsites we always had a great feeling of freedom and had hoped that this would also be the case with him. We had initially placed ourselves next to the sheep pasture, but in hindsight we thought it was not so ideal. Because we were the only ones on the campsite, we decided to move a little further, where we could better place our camper.

However, this was not to Ernst's liking. "When you make a choice, the choice has been made and you have to stick to your decision," she responded. The place where we stood would have been reserved for another camper. Did we know this? No! Did we know that this campsite worked with fixed pitches? No! Did we know that you could reserve a place? No! When we tried to make it clear to Ernst that this was a misunderstanding, we ran into a lot of misunderstanding. According to him, there was no room for discussion and we didn't follow the "basic rules of communication" (whatever that means) and according to him we clearly didn't know how the world worked...

I can understand somewhere that the owner works according to a certain principle and that he would like this to be followed as well as possible. But if he is too stubborn to listen and put the situation into perspective, then I have doubts about his idea of communication.

Because we didn't feel like spending our last days of vacation on the tips of our toes, we quickly decided that this was not the camping experience we were looking for. We quickly decided that we wanted to leave as soon as possible for another campsite and we did. That turned out to be the right decision.

I am sorry that our experience had to end this way. We felt more like a user of Ernst's land than a guest of Ernst and I don't think that's the intention. Shame on our money...

How was the contact with the host?
The contact in advance went very smoothly. The contact at the moment is spasmodic and one-sided.

Tips for new guests?
Maybe there was just no match between us and the owner, but through this review I want to warn people about a situation like this.

What a lovely place, so on the edge of the village. It is a nice and very spacious place, where we spent a wonderful week.

How was the contact with the host?
Ernst is a lovely host who makes you feel very welcome. Nothing is too much and he knew a lovely swimming spot where we could cool off in the sweltering weather.

Tips for new guests?
Since Ernst is a lovely host who is very helpful, it was rather disappointing that many of our compatriots (NL) did not pay for the shower. Maybe it was too unclear, the use of the shower costs 3 euros per honor.
