About this campspace

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.

Dennie

Tell us about your experience
Had a wonderful stay. Almost everything is possible and everything is negotiable, I think that is really worth a compliment to Marieke.
Had a wonderful five days. The facilities are good, clean and within reach. I will definitely be back next year, but for longer.

How was the contact with the host?
Very good, helpful, thoughtful, friendly and also clear and straightforward.

Tips for new guests?
Because the refrigerator is further away, I thought it would be useful to put some cooling elements in the freezer compartment and then take your cans of drinks from the refrigerator in the cool bag with the elements. This also saves some space in the refrigerators when it is busier. But what goes in, has to come out and then you have to go in the same direction πŸ˜‰

What a very beautiful and nice place.
It was wonderfully quiet, if you wanted you could visit people or undertake activities.
They have movie nights, Yoga and a nice little shop. It is really 20 minutes from Middelburg city. Had fantastic weather. They also have cute animals. Friendly guests. And a lot of curious cats walking around.
They are very aware of nature and environment. There is respect and you can be yourself! Totally fantastic! We already have a new date when we come back!

How was the contact with the host?
Super, Marieke is a very friendly woman who you can ask anything if you want to know something!
She explained everything about the place, and occasionally stopped by for a chat!

Tips for new guests?
If you have a bike take it with you! Super fun to explore the area!

Frodo

Tell us about your experience
If you are looking for a place to relax in the middle of nature, pitch your tent between the fruit trees and pigs in this fantastic food forest. You pick your meal from the bushes in the perma garden and eat in the company of a handful of nature guests. Or at your tent, where your peace is only disturbed by the crickets and birds. Then knock on the door of a yurt or van of the regular guests of the forest for a course in creative writing, crafts or to listen to a story.

How was the contact with the host?
The owner of this ecological project is extremely friendly and was very flexible when our plans kept changing. On arrival she will gladly tell you about the trees that would actually be cut down, the pigs for whom it is always dinner time and about the growth of all the nutritious plants around you. You really feel at home because of her hospitality.

Tips for new guests?
In the shop you can buy everything from eggs to freshly baked croissants and overnight oats. But then you have to get up early :)
This place is dog and child friendly, but both can feel the tranquility of the area very well and do not cause a nuisance.

We were kindly welcomed by Marieke and given a beautiful spot on the campsite with a view over the fields. We enjoyed the peace, nature, breakfast and all the animals that walk there. Highly recommended if you want to get back to nature.

How was the contact with the host?
Top, Marieke is a nice person who helped us both by phone and in person with our questions and gave us information about the campsite. We also had a nice chat with her nice daughters who made our breakfast in the morning and gave tips about what is nice to go and how best to get there.

Tips for new guests?
Enjoy that most of all. Oh and there is no public transport nearby, which is useful to take into account. Do you want to cycle? Then it is useful to take it with you, since a bicycle rental is quite a walk.

Tell us about your experience
Beautiful, huge camp spaces in the woods or on a field. If you're biking or have a tent, the spots are secretly hidden and shady. Mix of primitive and luxurious sanitary facilities: your choice. Covered yoga shala in the woods. When we were there, there was a variety of (low-key) activities offered: yoga, writer's workshop, foot massages and 'readings'. Beautifully-kept campsite.

How was the contact with the host?
Marieke was friendly and welcoming. She told us enthusiastically about the permaculture garden and how the campspace came into being.

Tips for new guests?
No electricity (I have solar panels). If you are in a camper, a bike is useful for shopping (a few km to Middelburg).

Tell us about your experience
Beautiful place, completely in nature, perfect for the basic camper. For people who like to use a 'real' shower and toilet, they have provided beautiful sanitary facilities at the back of the barn. Furthermore, it is quiet and you can find everything for a perfect holiday.

How was the contact with the host?
Super sweet, hospitable, warm people who are ready for you any time of the day.

Tips for new guests?
Make sure you have organic soap for washing up and showering in the closest eco sanitary facilities.
There is also a lot to find in their outdoor kitchen (plates, cutlery, ...).
For the people without a bbq there is a fire pit to cook on.

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.

Rent a bike or take yours with you and explore the area by bike.

Our tent site was surrounded by greenery and the sounds of rustling trees and birds. Neat toilets and showers nearby, delicious breakfasts, nice yoga session. Finished off with Marieke's lovely smile, who does everything with great enthusiasm and joy.

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.

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!

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.

Tips for new guests?
Be sure to try Marieke's breakfast.

David

Tell us about your experience
A really well thought through campsite, providing a good balance between comfort, facilities, privacy and sociability. Obviously, the fact that it is a food forest makes it considerably more interesting than your typical field with toilets and washing facilities.

How was the contact with the host?
Marieke was extremely helpful both before and during my visit.

Tips for new guests?
Google maps correctly locates the entrance to the food forest as the western point for "OEST Farm & Stay". But StreetView pictures of the entrance are many years out of date β€” showing only a winter view of the original poplar stand, with no sign identifying the property or the food forrest.

Ons verblijf was prima, hoewel we jammer genoeg het terrein niet op konden i.v.m. een te natte bodem. Het voedselbos is prachtig aangelegd en bij mooi weer zeker een aanrader.

How was the contact with the host?
Ontzettend aardige mensen, die ook goed bereikbaar waren.

Tips for new guests?
We waren ervan uitgegaan dat we de mogelijkheid tot stroom hadden, omdat dit bij de faciliteiten stond. Helaas sloeg dit alleen op de mogelijkheid bij de douches je telefoon op te laden. Daar moet je dus wel even rekening mee houden als je afhankelijk bent van stroom.

At this special place you can choose an accommodation or camper place where you can enjoy nature to the fullest. It is a requirement that you respect nature and they are happy to help you with that; they sell packaging-free products in their shop, including vegetables, fruit and eggs straight from the garden.
