Raf

Tell us about your experience
The stay in the food forest exceeded our expectations. Waking up to the sound of all kinds of animals in the background makes every day better and if you can also pull a delicious apple from the tree, I don't know what more anyone could wish for.

How was the contact with the host?
Mark and Rinus were very friendly and helpful. It was very inspiring to meet someone with such an ecological & social lifestyle.

Tips for new guests?
It is recommended to come during the harvest season for apples and pears.

Scout Thijs About the scout program

Tell us about your experience
Very quiet, spacious food forest. Owner gave an interesting tour with great love for the plants / trees without imposing himself.

We were allowed to taste the fruit and make tea from the herbs.

A dry toilet is available. A shower will come in the future.

Nice experience! Recommended for those who love nature and need little.

How was the contact with the host?
Good contact. Meeting went smoothly.

Tips for new guests?
Those who travel on foot or by bicycle should bear in mind that there are no shops in the immediate vicinity.

Tell us about your experience
We were warmly welcomed in the wilderness. We were allowed to relax and dream in his paradisiacal garden. We were a part of the whole and were allowed to spend our time enchantingly.

How was the contact with the host?
Mark welcomed us warmly and showed us his paradise. We were allowed to move freely in his place and marvel at his work. We were also allowed to try one or the other. He was a reliable contact and gave us very good recommendations in terms of activities and sights.

Tips for new guests?
If you're looking for space to breathe deeply, then you've come to the right place.
Time together under a starry sky with a campfire and the calling owls is guaranteed. The proximity to the beach is of course also great.

Tell us about your experience
Mark's spot is so lovely. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly, I really enjoyed waking up seeing the cows, geese and ducklings.

The location is great, with the pretty town of lissewege close by and the train station to visit Bruges on foot.

We will definitely be back!

How was the contact with the host?
Excellent, Mark gave us lots of information and advice about nearby towns and was very helpful.

Tell us about your experience
Beautiful camping spot in rural surroundings. Quiet, beautiful view, lots of space and nice flat (to pitch your tent).
Reception was great, after a long bike ride I was well pampered with drinking water and delicious soup with ingredients from the food forest. Nice to stay in a place that is looked after with such passion.

How was the contact with the host?
Smooth contact

A warm welcome in a beautiful setting. It's basic but I needed that, rest. Close to the coast and a number of historic villages completed the picture.

How was the contact with the host?
Very good, warm personalities.

Ana

Tell us about your experience
We spent just one night as a stop in our tour. It was a really nice and quiet place to rest before the next leg of our journey.

How was the contact with the host?
Mark was really open and easy to contact and talk to.

Tips for new guests?
We arrived late in the evening and had some issues with the roaming, which made finding the place a bit difficult, it is not visible from the street. I suggest to ask for information in advance. Either way, Mark will try to contact you on the phone to offer information for the guests.

A very quietly located camping site, right next to the orchard with delicious pears and apples. Beautiful meadow with plenty of space to stand and enjoy the peace and tranquility.

How was the contact with the host?
Very open and pleasant welcome where they take the time to explain and welcome their guests. Very nice and good contact.

Tips for new guests?
Definitely do this if you like a quiet and beautiful environment and where the underlying purpose of the campspace is to further improve the domain and the associated nature and to further develop it in a sustainable way.

Cows, little owls, butterflies and geese. A large area for camping and a food forest with shrubs and trees under construction. Very nice place a stone's throw from the approach roads. Great first experience with Campspace

How was the contact with the host?
On arrival, Mark enthusiastically tells you about their food forest project. Very helpful man who is happy to help you even with a broken collarbone.

Tell us about your experience
Very pleasant stay at a quiet Mini-Camping, close to a pleasant village and within cycling distance of the coast.

How was the contact with the host?
Fine. Interesting tour in the growing food forest. Very flexible.

Tips for new guests?
The trees on the camping field are still very small. So in very hot weather a parasol is not superfluous. Fortunately there was a shelter under which we could eat.

Karis

Tell us about your experience
This was our first experience with campspace and we (family with 3 young children - 2yrs, 4yrs and 6yrs) had a great time! Nice quiet camping spot with the necessary amenities. The outdoor shower under construction will certainly be an added value.

How was the contact with the host?
Very smoothly. Mark receives a personal and warm welcome. Gives a nice tour and talks enthusiastically about future plans. We got delicious freshly squeezed apple-peach-blackberry juice and apple chips. Mark helped the children feed the cows apples . Of course they loved this.

Tips for new guests?
The camping site is currently completely open, in good and open weather it can be useful to have a parasol with you to have some shade at the tent. There is a shaded spot a little further from the camping spot.
We will definitely come back in the future to discover the further changes of this campspace.
