Hello, this is my first experience with Campspace. I'm a backpacker traveling alone. Arrival by IC/ RE/ bus directly to Nordlede possible. Gerd's large monastery courtyard, which is covered with reed, is a dream of traditional half-timbering, which he constantly keeps in good shape himself. Likewise, his large garden with lots of flowers, herbs and vegetables in which the tents are. A good guest bathroom is accessible 24/7, with a hot shower, toilet, vanity - same outside for washing dishes etc. It is very quiet and relaxing here. Trees and shrubs, many wild bees, birds can be heard and bats must be observed. Cows graze at the neighbors. Farmsteads impress with their size and varied cultivation on the land. I particularly like the central location between Cuxhaven and Hamburg right where the Elbe flows. There are plenty of things to do whatever the weather. The open North Sea is obvious - as I said, everything can be reached without a car.

How was the contact with the host?
Very warm and open. Always approachable of the day for concerns as he does not care but was always very helpful and extremely communicative. I am convinced that the professor shares his life, his life experience and his love for nature with great joy.

Tips for new guests?
Pay attention to the times of the bus service and the Ruftaxi, inform them.

Since I am currently starting camping again, I would bring my stove etc. with me.

As soon as possible, ie from September again after the €9 rush onto the train, bring your bike with you and make very nice signposted day and round trips in Cuxland. Because the trains have a whole wagon for wheels.

We camped in the monastery garden for two nights: in a quiet and idyllic location with a very friendly host who gave us a warm welcome. We could use the sanitary facilities in the house.

How was the contact with the host?
Best - uncomplicated, good conversations and Gerd spoiled us with fresh strawberries, home-made tea and coffee.

Unfortunately, a lot of rain had fallen. Therefore, the site was not suitable for camping. Unfortunately Gerd couldn't do anything about that.

How was the contact with the host?
The contact with Gerd was excellent. He has promised to refund the money paid.

As a couple with the caddy in the middle of the monastery courtyard garden. And got apple mint from the garden as a farewell. You don't say thank you for plants given to you: I'm happy about it 😁

How was the contact with the host?
We were received very nicely (although the booking was a bit confused)

Tips for new guests?
Bring your bikes, like we did, so the car can stay where it is. A great tour of the Elbe is possible.

I have stayed for one night at Gerd's Campspace, it was very peaceful and relaxing. The surrounding wildlife is very unique and full of activity. I enjoyed my time resting while reconnecting with nature.

How was the contact with the host?
Gerd was very welcoming and kind. He shared some of his interesting stories about his passions and gardening experiences. Gerd's language skills were excellent, therefore he is also a great host for non-German visitors.

Tips for new guests?
Larger than average RV vehicles may find difficulties to approach the Campspace.
