Herma

A small-scale campsite on the pasture at the back with lots of privacy, peace and space. You can see Sneek, but it is still surrounded by extensive meadows. From the camping site you can walk straight into the adjacent park of 6 hectares, which is managed by the city farm. In the summer our horses graze here. There is a wide ditch around the campsite and there is almost completely unobstructed view, with birds of prey, grazing horses and sheep as a background. You hear a lot of frogs and occasionally a deer walks! Children can enjoy climbing trees, building rafts, playing in the hay, picking flowers and interacting with animals. The farm is still under development and we hope that our first guests will 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 box, a terrace with trampoline and sand box, a large vegetable garden and several stables. This year we are opening our local produce shop with a terrace, where you can buy cold drinks, ice cream, dairy 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. We have 4 bicycles for rent. 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 beautifully here! There is room for 15 places. The sanitary building is located in the former cubicle barn and has separate ladies and gents areas, with a total of 7 toilets and 4 showers. This does have a step, so it is not easily accessible for the disabled. In the field is also our newly landscaped vegetable garden, where you can pick herbs and lettuce. Next to the field we have created a sheltered place with lighting, a hammock, fire bowl and picnic benches, where you can sit comfortably. There is also a covered seating area in the stable where you can play games or lounge. There are several water and electricity points on the site for general use, both indoors and outdoors.

ACTIVITIES

A few times a week, children can help take care of the animals, such as feeding chickens, collecting eggs and brushing ponies. Small children (up to 8 years) can take a ride on the shetland ponies under supervision and for older children there is a good Haflinger that can be ridden. We also provide a pizza evening every week!

AREA

The beautiful city of Sneek with its many terraces, shops and old buildings is only a few minutes by bike. You can swim in the Zwette (canal) within 5 minutes by bike. The Sneekermeer is 7 km away, where you can swim, sail and water ski. There are many restaurants within cycling distance that also deliver to the campsite. At 11 km is the most beautiful tropical swimming paradise in the North (we think), SwimFun in Joure. Would you like to ride a horse in an indoor arena or take an outdoor ride? This can be arranged through us at a nice riding school near Heerenveen (half an hour by car). Visit the 11 cities such as Sloten and Hindeloopen, go eat a fish in the picturesque Makkum, go for a day wind or kite surfing in Workum, rent a canoe or SUP board, there is a lot to do in beautiful Friesland.

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.

On the city farm just outside Sneek you will find a cozy Bell tent. This is located on our small campsite, where peace, space and nature are central. A very child-friendly place with Friesian horses, ponies, chickens and sheep.
