Curious who you will stay with? We would like to introduce ourselves to you.

Hi, I'm Martin. I have a small, active dairy farm located on the Grote Gaastmeer in It Heidenskip (Southwest Friesland). The most beautiful place in Friesland of course!
I milk about 50 dairy cows twice a day. Besides all the work on the farm I am interested in oldtimer tractors. Landini is my favorite tractor brand.

Hi, I'm Esther. In addition to my job, I am involved in the advertisements and bookings of the camping spots. In the summer season I sometimes stand with 2nd hand stuff at the trunk market of Flinkefarm in Hemelum. I enjoy that a lot.

If our work permits, we enjoy joint trips or a short vacation.

Oant shen! Marten & Esther

Tell us about your experience
A lovely quiet place near the water where you can really relax. The facilities at the place are fine: you have a toilet, a shower and a sink where you can do the dishes.

How was the contact with the host?
Esther and Marten are friendly people, my booking request was responded to quickly and I received a warm welcome on the spot.

Tips for new guests?
Are you coming with a tent? Then don't put it too close under the maple because of various birds that spend the night in the tree, that saves cleaning bird poop ;-)

Tell us about your experience
Camped for a few days at the back of the yard with Marten and Esther. I was received very hospitably and helpfully, the place is beautiful (behind a dike next to the large Gaastmeer) and spacious. Surrounded by green, blue and the animals on the farm! This is a good base to discover the rest of south-west Friesland (in my case by bike).

How was the contact with the host?
Very helpful, approachable and friendly. I really liked the contact.

Tips for new guests?
Make sure you can cover or close your belongings and your sleeping area and have something to sit on, there are many curious snails/mosquitoes/spiders/flies.

Dream place! In fact, that's all that's said. We enjoyed the peace, space and luxury of private sanitary facilities. A 'small' rural paradise surrounded by many lakes and historic towns. With the big bonus Guus who came to us every day for the necessary hugs and fun. We would love to come back!

How was the contact with the host?
Marten and Esther are super hospitable and do everything they can to make yourself feel at home. We immediately felt welcome!

Tips for new guests?
Just enjoying!

Tell us about your experience
It was a first time for us. We wanted to see if we could be completely self-sufficient. This worked. We were alone on a meadow with a view of the lake. It was a lovely few days. We were allowed to go to the farm with questions.

How was the contact with the host?
Very nice and helpful

Tips for new guests?
If you want to have the peace. Then you can certainly indulge yourself here

Marieke

Tell us about your experience
We had an amazing stay at Marten & Esther's farm. Located in the middle of farming fields, lakes and little streams, it could not have been more typical of the Frisian landscape. From our camping place we saw a few rabbits, some 'exotic' birds and ducks enjoying their time in the fields and lakes which made us feel reconnected to nature and the natural world. The views were great and there are plenty of activities to do in the area which made it a wonderful base for further exploration.

How was the contact with the host?
We were welcomed very kindly by Marten & Esther. They showed us where we could park the van, gave some small instructions and made us feel at home right away. They were clearly concerned with our wellbeing. Excellent hosts!
