About this campspace #s002221

Your host

Frits

I have a free country house with a vegetable garden and a large surrounding garden with enough space for a tent. You can lie in the grass, sit under a tree, hammock, or take your bike and cycle to the mudflats. When you come back, you can pick vegetables from the garden or sit on the square or by the fire pit or fire pit with a book / guitar etc.

The area is agricultural and has many hiking trails. For example, you can walk in the evening in the 'Dark Sky Park'. As soon as it is dark, a world opens up for you. This is because there is hardly any light pollution in this sparsely populated area. You will see the Milky Way, Orion and many other stars. It's so bright, it's like a 3D starry sky.

Do not expect neatly raked paths, jeux de boules / mini golf / playground / toilet blocks smelling of chlorine, I am not a campsite, just a (nice) Space to Camp, together we will make something beautiful out of it.

The location is certainly beautiful!
As far as we're concerned, that's about it a bit...
The sanitary facilities are far below standard, and have certainly never been cleaned in recent weeks (and also during our stay).
Ordinary camping prices for accommodation of this standard: that is really not possible!

How was the contact with the host?
Distant, impersonal, actually no contact.

Despite the bad weather, we had a very nice weekend in Frits' garden. We could enjoy peace and quiet while we were fully equipped. Toilet, hot water and shed to shelter from the rain were present and so we were not short of anything. Thank you for staying in the lovely garden :)

How was the contact with the host?
With the occasional call we were able to ask everything that was needed.

A very nice, quiet place to stay and relax from the hustle and bustle. Very rural setting, enjoyed in the evening by the campfire. A must if you want to escape the crowds for a while!

How was the contact with the host?
Contact went well. Frits was very pleasant and in consultation anything was possible.

Tips for new guests?
It is convenient to come here with a car.

On arrival Frits was not present, but he welcomed us by telephone. We spent 6 days at the Eco campspace with 4 people. Our goal was mainly to make a lot of music, after a year and a half of Corona playing together again.
The place was ideal for this. It is a beautiful place with luckily in case of bad weather a shed that we could use.
The area is also beautiful, we have made beautiful bike rides.
We would love to come back again.

How was the contact with the host?
Fine!

Heerlijk plekje met echt volledige rust en super uitzicht. De faciliteiten zijn basic maar prima en de omgeving is het zeker waard. Katten komen gezellig langs, ook een leuk detail!

How was the contact with the host?
We hebben Frits alleen telefonisch gesproken en dat was prima. Goed bereikbaar voor vragen en altijd snel antwoord.

We arrived at Frits via a red cinder path. Immediately enchanted by the idyllic spot! He did the tour accurately by phone. Then we looked for a place to pitch our tent. Everything we needed was there (toilet shower hob and even a washing machine). We were even able to use the shed to shelter from the rain which was very nice. Frits also has a nice campfire place with a lovely couch.
We had wonderful days with Frits!

Had a fantastic weekend in Warffum! We were a group of friends of 8 people and we had plenty of space for our tents under the trees. The sanitary facilities are minimal, but that was okay. Although we come from the city of Groningen ourselves and the camping spot was very close, the place immediately gave us a holiday feeling. Beautiful surroundings, light a nice fire and hang out in the garden. There isn't much, but that's what makes this place special!

How was the contact with the host?
Frits was not present himself, but we had contact by phone about where we could set up the tents. I got a quick reply via whatsapp.

Tips for new guests?
- Rent a canoe, for example in Winsum.
- Visit the dike and the mudflats at Noordpolderzijl or Westernieland
- Enjoy the beautiful Hogeland and the small villages

Very good communication with the host. We had a very relaxing time at this camp site. We took day trips, here and there, but the purpose of our trip was just to chill; this was the perfect site for doing just that!

Good communication and nice host. Nice place in an area where you can cycle well (for example to Winsum or the North Cape). Frits lives beautifully with a beautiful green garden. You can use all facilities, including an eco toilet (great!). Nice fire in the evening. We were with a caravan and had a spot next to the vegetable garden. Fine, but a bit narrow and a view of the Aviko factory. If you come with a tent, you have a choice of nicer spots. Unfortunately not really clear skies so we save the stargazing until next time. Thank you for the hospitality, we definitely recommend this place! Tip: Bike along and explore the area. Via Winsum with the ferry from Schaphhalsterzijl to Aduarderzijl. And in Garnwerd the terrace.

my experience in Warffum was moderate / bad, little empathy from the owner and the facilities were also very poor, unfinished toilet / shower and we knew it was a very simple campsite with an outside toilet fine, we had the campsite on the TV program “travelling” given our rating is a 5 on the scale of 10 .

Beautiful area with very picturesque villages, the house of Frits is really pretty as well. Frits is a great host and lighted the fire pit for us at night. Had some good talk with the other campers and the frogs. Robert Parker an Jur the cats are great company. Highlight was the ‘Loo with the view’! Bathroom is basic, but has a nice hot shower! It can get pretty windy in the garden, but there is also a shed where you can put up your cooking gear in case of bad weather.

After a 2 hour drive from Amsterdam we arrived right at the sunset and were welcomed by a peaceful quiet landscape in the middle of Groningen. Frits wasn't there but after a quick phone call he told us where to set up our tent, which is a beautiful private spot near a little pond and overlooking the wide fields. We could use the private bathroom and the kitchen for cooking. In the area there is lots to explore varying from nature to little sleepy towns. The garden right next to our tent is comfy for hammock and bbq nights. Frits is friendly and relaxed, but mostly super hospitable. If you are looking for a place to unwind with privacy, this is the spot to go!

We loved our first Campspace experience! Beautiful garden (orchard!), many different places where you can set up your tent. Despite the fact that it is someone's backyard, you feel like you are in the wilderness. There were other campers as well, but we still had a lot of privacy. I thought it was a really nice environment to discover, for me it was unknown Netherlands, because when I go this way, I usually travel to the Wadden, so the Wadden Sea on this side was a discovery! Highly recommended!

The whole experience was awesome, me and my partner loved staying at Frits place! ? He's very kind and relaxed host that gave us a lot of privacy and shared all the good of his property. We could light up a beautiful campfire and paddle together on his canoe. The kitties are the sweet touch on his beautiful wood house surrounded by amazing green yard. After enjoying the day exploring the area around, we could have nice hot shower in a private bathroom and the open toilet is fun thing to remember! Thank you Frits for the hospitality

We enjoyed our stay with Frits. What a beautiful place. Too bad we haven’t seen Frits. The contact over the phone and SMS was very pleasant, so we would have liked a cup of tea with Frits. Bird concerts, frog arias and cuddle sessions with the two lovely cats. It was all there. The toilet is an experience! We would love to come back again.

Last week the two of us stayed in a tent at Frits’. We did not see Frits due to a combination of circumstances. But he told us over the phone exactly where everything was and where we could put up our tent. We had a good night and really enjoyed the area. The facilities are good, everything you need is there. We look back on a successful weekend

After a long day at work, my welcome at this campsite couldn't have been better. The host, Frits, was sitting in the sun in front of his cute house. He was kept company by his two cuddly cats and surrounded by the greens of his garden. I got served a nice cup of tea and he showed me around the house and the garden / camp site. In the fruit garden there are several spots under the trees, as well as a place for making a campfire and a hammock. Further in the back, there are some more secluded spots with views over the surrounding fields. In the house, there is a shared kitchen, living room, meditation room bathroom and toilet. For the more adventurous campers there is a toilet in the garden from which you have a view over the farmers field. Frits relaxed attitude made me feel very welcome to use whatever space in the house and garden, which felt really nice. In the evening I took a walk through a tiny forest and sheep fields that are easily accessible from the garden. I’d hear nothing but birds singing and lambs calling their moms. To the same sounds, I woke up the next morning, while I saw the sun rise over the fields. I enjoyed my one-night stay very much and I can’t wait to go back and explore all the nice surroundings this place has to offer (the coast, Noordpolderzeil, the open-air museum, etc.).

We had a great time with a very relaxed host Frits, who has a super nice Campspace place in Warffum. Received with homemade apple juice and rocked to sleep by the stars and frogs. The next day we had a great day on the mudflats, really enjoyed it!

We had nice contact with Frits the first evening. Enjoyed its beautiful garden with beautiful spots. Met nice fellow guests and had a nice campfire evening together. Sanitary was good, only a sink was missing. Toilet took some getting used to but was fine. Beautiful area that we thoroughly enjoyed.

This was really my favourite camping spot! Frits has a beautiful garden where you can really relax. There were hammocks hanging from the trees where you could sit comfortably and in the front of the house you have the sun until late. Also, the toilet outside is a nice addition and of course super handy. Some other travellers invited me to sit by the campfire in the evening. That made the experience complete! The next day I walked around the meadows and walked a route to a beautiful deserted lake. I was only here for 1 night but I’ll definitely be back to stay longer!

This was the first time with Campspace, it went well! On arrival, the host was not there, but we are used to camping so he showed us around by phone. We looked for a spot. It is not a real campsite, but a farm with some leftover fields. Also, not everything was in order, but good enough for a few days. That was a bit unfortunate, but otherwise, the place was good. No hot water tap in the bathroom or anything where you can easily wash your dishes. That is also for hygiene reasons because of Corona. We stayed for five nights; it was very busy. There were two families camping there, a camper, and another tent, and some people in the house. That was actually too much in my opinion.

It was our first Campspace experience. We find it a very nice concept. Frits has a nice place, where you can nicely stay in your tent. So the camping experience was as expected. It is a bit tricky that there is no sink or something like it, that would make it even better.

Fritz’s camping/garden is very beautiful but very basic. Do not expect luxury: there is hot water in the shower and the possibility to use electricity in the shed. Toilet is primitive “green” with sawdust and a view over the field; in other words “loo with a view”. Contact with Fritz is fine! You can enjoy a campfire in the evening. We used the campsite as a base to Schiermonnikoog which was very doable.

Despite the rain, we had some nice days. The spot for the camper is slightly sheltered, so you are out of the wind but at the same time have a beautiful view over the fields. The shower was perfect and the toilet took some getting used to but in the end really great! When we are back in Groningen we will definitely come back.

My first Campspace motorcycle adventure. Stayed one night in Fritz’ backyard. He was not there when I arrived so I received a friendly audio intake. Besides a caravan in front of the house, there was nobody there so I could pick my spot. Chose a secluded space at the edge of the garden, watching over a field. Put up my tent, and made myself a cup of coffee while listening to the birds and the frogs, and every now and then, one of the cats came by to see everything was still okay. At dinner time, Frits came to say hi, we chatted a bit and then he left again. Then I took a nap and around midnight I woke up and just sat outside in the dark with the milky way above me, the wind around me and the sounds of frogs nearby, and I slowly became utter stillness. Really a wonderful experience just sitting there being an empty vessel. Then in the morning, I did my kriya's. I planned to do them in the meditation space which is available, but the temperature was nice so I just did them outside. Then I took a shower, packed my tent. Had a final chat with Frits in the garden and then I left. All in all, I got what I wanted, a quiet place to just sit outside with nature around me and a friendly host who leaves you be.

The location is very beautiful, green and private. We were lucky to be the only campers, so we had the whole garden to ourselves. Frits was not present in the house during our stay, but he gave us all the information we needed over the phone. Very relaxed to be able to communicate this way and to coordinate everything in good faith. The garden is a wonderful place to relax and simply watch all the life that flows, flies, and crawls. The only downside is the factory a few hundred yards away. When the wind blows from the west, you can hear the factory noise, especially at night, this can disturb the peace a bit. There is also plenty to do and find in the nearby area. You will find a supermarket in Warffum, the boat to Schiermonnikoog is nearby, and you can eat delicious fresh fish in the harbour of Lauwersoog. This place was our first experience with Campspace and definitely tastes like more!
