Ecological camping in a food forest

    6 pitches

Since 2018, we have been converting an existing poplar forest into a food forest. Tent pitches have been created in the forest and there is room for a few small campers at the edge of the forest. Your place is surrounded by fruit trees, berry bushes, herbs and wild grasses. There is no electricity and water at the pitches, but there is a central location. If you want to camp with us, it is a requirement that you respect nature and leave as little waste as possible (in the appropriate bins). We are happy to help you with that; we sell packaging-free products in our shop and vegetables, fruit and eggs straight from the garden. It is also possible to order bread and breakfast dishes. We are small-scale, with 20 pitches spread over 3 hectares, and our guests are seekers of peace. You will certainly find that peace here. After just one day, guests usually feel reborn and completely at ease. In the forest there is a communal fire place with a grill for grilling. Disposable BBQs and fires are not allowed near your tent. There is also a shared fridge and kettle that you can use. In the forest there is a sanitary building with two compost toilets and a hot and cold shower. Because there is no sewer, no soap / shampoo may be used and only (a small amount) of ecological detergent for washing up. A little further away there is more luxurious sanitary facilities with wonderful showers and flushing toilets, where ecological soap / shampoo may be used.
Our location is close to Middelburg and Vlissingen, 3 km from the Western Scheldt. You can also easily reach the North Sea beaches or the picturesque Veere or Veerse lake.

Fantastic place to completely unwind. Also an inspiring place because so many beautiful things to live sustainably and waste less. Marieke and Jeroen are fun, welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed the space and silence, the kids, pigs, geese. Lovely cycled around the sea and other beautiful places on the peninsula. We will definitely come back.

Spent 2 nights here. What a peace, great energy and beautiful surroundings. You are in the middle of nature, and yet the shops are 10 minutes away (car) if you need anything. I will definitely come back here!

How was the contact with the host?
The communication was clear and friendly. There was interest in me as a person, nice conversations arose from that, and I was left alone. It is clear that the family works hard all year round to maintain and take care of everything down to the last detail.

Tips for new guests?
Go here :). Alone, together, with kids. Really nice to recharge. Oh and the breakfasts, I had the pancakes with fruit, delicious!

The camp is in a very nice location, everything is green all around. The sanitary facilities are top. And if you want to go to the sea or to the next town, you can reach it in a short time by bike or car.

Marieke is a nice and courteous hostess. She shows you everything at the beginning and is available all the time afterwards if you have any questions.

A very pleasant stay and the concept is great!
The peace, nature and camping spots are top notch!
You would sometimes think that you are wild camping in the middle of the forest.

How was the contact with the host?
Marieke is very easy to reach and also easily approachable on the spot and always helpful and interested.

Tips for new guests?
Do not be alarmed by the report about sanitary facilities in the forest without a sewer. the sanitary building is beautifully made and the toilet is clean with a toilet seat and with toilet paper as you are used to. Also the showers are just with a tap and shower head. Everything is 100% natural and ecological.

Hi Marieke,

How well you have done this! Great place to be and experience. Everything is there, even if you have no power; kitchenette, fridge .... A beautiful view and everything is ecological. That's how everyone should do it.

Very well. Marieke is very inspiring to talk to.

Wonderfully quiet campsite with a real nature experience in the food forest. Although (almost) all places were fully booked, the peace and quiet was enormous. During our stay there was a lot of wind, but at the camping spot in the woods it was hardly noticeable. We enjoyed!

How was the contact with the host?
Very good. Accessible, friendly and we immediately felt welcome. Because of the weather we arrived two days later and because there was space we could even stay one night longer. Thank you for your hospitality!

Very nice large green food forest. Our place was very private.
Walking barefoot everywhere on the grassy paths. Definitely a highlight of our campspace tour. We would love to come back more often. Learned a lot about permaculture too.

Very nice. Super sweet inspiring people. Can learn a lot from them. Everything clearly explained about the site and facilities.

Scout Evelien About the scout program

Tell us about your experience
In a word: AMAZING! We were received super friendly by host Marieke. She told us about their place, how it came to be and how she and her family built it into a beautiful natural forest. Everything they do is with nature, they have a permaculture vegetable garden, they only use natural materials and methods, and they ensure that nature can take its course.
The forest is beautiful and spacious with its own tent spots and the tipi tents that you can book. Next to the forest they have created a natural field where we stood with our camper van. In these places you have a lot of privacy and beautiful views. There are also two sanitary buildings, one with a compost toilet and cold water shower and the other with luxury toilets and showers. Both very well maintained!
The terrain was the perfect finishing touch for us because of the beautiful picnic areas, newly born piglets and the great atmosphere there was! If you're looking for a place to relax and enjoy pure nature, then you've come to the right place!

How was the contact with the host?
Super friendly contact with the host and she always responded quickly.

Tips for new guests?
Tip! Bake your own pizza in the stone oven.

If you really want to relax and enjoy nature, then staying overnight at this campspace is recommended. We enjoyed a luxurious stay in one of the glamping tents in the food forest. These tents are nicely furnished, the toilet building was clean and the outdoor kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and extra! Because during our stay we enjoyed a real brick oven pizza. In addition, we were also lucky that little piglets were born a week ago, we could see and pet them up close. If you want to make your stay even more luxurious, you can request a breakfast made by the host, this is definitely recommended. All in all it was a relaxing weekend for us in nature.

How was the contact with the host?
Marieke is a very nice host and is always there for you if you have any questions. The contact online and offline was very fast and easy.
