Ecological farm with Friesian horses, chickens and picking garden near Sneek

About this campspace #s003981

Your host

Herma

A small-scale campsite on the meadow behind with lots of privacy, peace and space. You can see Sneek, but it is still surrounded by vast meadows. From the camping site you can walk straight into the adjacent 6 hectare park, which is managed by the city farm. In summer our horses graze here. There is a wide ditch around the camping site and there is an almost completely unobstructed view, with birds of prey, grazing horses and sheep as a background. You hear a lot of frogs and now and then a deer walks! Children can enjoy climbing trees, building rafts, picking flowers and interacting with animals. The farm is still in development and we hope that our guests will want to think along with us and inspire us to make this beautiful place even more beautiful!

The farm is located on 2.4 hectares of land. There is a horse trough, a terrace with trampoline and sandpit, a large vegetable garden and several stables. We also have a local produce shop with a terrace, where you can buy cold drinks, ice cream, dairy products and vegetables. You can also buy local beer and wine here to take to your tent. There is a parking lot at the front where you can park your car. For our camping guests there is a freezer, refrigerator and washing machine to use.


THE CAMPING FIELD


The camping field is located behind the farm, far from the (very quiet) public road. The field is surrounded by a wide ditch and has a view of the meadows and the horses in the adjacent park. You can watch the sun go down here beautifully! There is room for 15 places. The sanitary building is located in the former cubicle shed and has separate ladies and gentlemen's areas, with a total of 5 toilets and 2 showers. It does have a step, so it is not easily accessible for the disabled. In the field is also our vegetable garden, where you can pick herbs and lettuce. There is also a covered seating area in the stable where you can play games or lounge. There are several water and power points on the site for general use, both indoors and outdoors.
ACTIVITIES


A few times a week, children can help with the care of the animals, such as feeding chickens and grooming ponies. Small children (up to 8 years) can take a ride on the Shetland ponies under supervision.

AREA


The beautiful city of Sneek with its many terraces, shops and old buildings is just a few minutes by bike. At 5 minutes cycling you can swim in the Zwette (canal). The Sneekermeer is 7 km away, where you can go swimming, sailing and water skiing. There are many restaurants within cycling distance that also deliver to the campsite. At 11 km you will find the most beautiful tropical swimming paradise in the North (in our opinion), SwimFun in Joure. Visit the 11 cities such as Sloten and Hindeloopen, eat some fish in picturesque Makkum, go wind- or kitesurfing for a day in Workum, rent a canoe or SUP board, there is a lot to do in beautiful Friesland.

Johannes studied Regional Development and Innovation in Wageningen and has been passionate about combating climate change and innovation from the bottom up for years. As a coordinator, he supports initiatives of local communities that are committed to a sustainable future, by taking matters into their own hands in their own village.

A very nice place to camp for a few nights. Nice and free, all amenities available and fun with children.

How was the contact with the host?
Entirely right!

Tips for new guests?
The camping field has no shady spots. A parasol or a cloth is nice to take with you (in the summer).

Absolutely wonderful place to stay! The farm is lovely, the pitches are spacious and have lovely views over the fields and horses. The facilities are really clean and well maintained, and Herma the host is super lovely! It's so nice being able to go pick herbs from the garden to add to the BBQ and the little farm shop is really cute.

How was the contact with the host?
Herma is fantastic - she was super kind and welcoming, showing us round and giving us all of the info.

Tips for new guests?
There are quite a few electrical points onsite, but not at all of the pitches, so it's handy to bring an extension cable (extra handy if it's a 3 pin adapter!).

We had trouble making contact upon arrival.
Then we just looked for a parking space ourselves. Later the young woman came and assured us that everything would be ok.
The showers and toilets are in the old cowshed, which was perfect for us

How was the contact with the host?
Very nice and everything ok

The stay in the pre-pitched tent is really wonderful! It gives a rural feel, with a bit of luxury.

How was the contact with the host?
The host are very friendly and interested. They are on hand if needed, but you also have all the space and tranquility on the property to do your own thing.

Tips for new guests?
Go here for a few nights! The rest will do you good :)

The contact with the host was great, there was a quick response and everything was clearly indicated. we were warmly welcomed on arrival by the host! the campsite was fully equipped and there was plenty of space. beautiful view over the meadows which brought a lot of peace, but there was plenty to do at the campsite and around it (10 minutes by bike to sneek). the farm shop with its own vegetables, fruits and dairy from local farmers was also fantastic. 100%

First of all the contact with Herma was super easy through the website. Also upon arrival she took me around the campspace showing me all the things: toilets, shower/ free use of eco vegetable garden/ fireplace and small store with cheeses from the nearby farms, fresh eggs, veggies, milk and yoghurt.

Both Herma and Johannes are such easy going kind and caring people who totally leave you your space but if you want info about the possibilities around are happy to tell you about it and give you tips. Kids can take horsebackriding class or supp/kano and swim in the pound. They just started this year setting up their dream and they are enthuastic with tons of ideas and open to any suggestions.

The location was great, close to Sneek, but still really in nature at a beautiful farm. Also easy to reach without a car. We came by public transport and rented a bicycle in Sneek. The tent is very spacious, equipped with many comforts. The sanitary facilities are clean and the atmosphere at the campsite was relaxed. The vegetable and herb garden was a nice bonus. Contact with the hosts was very good. Nice, involved people!
Please note: it is a real family campsite. We were in between two families and had to really conform to that (quiet early in the evening, awake very early). That it is a family campsite was of course also stated in the advertisement.

At city farm De Sibbe you step into a sustainable 'bubble' full of greenery and animals. A spacious field offers space for about 15 camping spots. Guests can pick what they need from the vegetable garden and there is a shop with local products. There is plenty to do for children: play areas, pony rides and an indoor area full of games and hay to romp in.

The hosts were great, they were friendly and approachable. There's plenty of space for your tent and the terrain is very relaxing. This spot is especially great for kids. There's lots of areas for them to wander around and they can regularly do some horseback riding. One of my daughters really loved to help the host with the horses. All in all, it was a fantastic experience! We'll be back!

The last night we stayed at a micro farm in Loënga. A paradise! Nice shop with its own cultivation and neighbourhood artisanal products. We could pick from the vegetable garden. And got a very spacious place. Another great experience and definitely recommended.

Close to the city and yet in nature between horses, sheep, frogs, birds and bees. On the small-scale field you have a spacious place with an unobstructed view. There is a fire pit, trampoline and we sell local produce such as jam, cheese and wine. We do pony rides a few times a week.
