Experience the joy of the country side
About this campspace #s002049
Near the Kagerplassen, in the middle of 't Groene Hart, near city center Leiden, is our paradise piece of land on the dike. At the end of the dike you can rent a (sailing) boat. The area is also perfect for a walking or cycling trip. In ten minutes cycling or driving, you are in the beautiful historic centre of Leiden; the birthplace of the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn. There are many wonderful museums and lovely restaurants in Leiden.
At our property you can camp in the shade, between the sheep or in the apple orchard: you can choose your own spot and if desired we mow the gras for you. You have some sweet neighbours with our sheep, pigs and chickens. Tell us what you are up for: volleyball, go-karting, tomato picking or a campfire?
We offer separate sanitary facilities such as a toilet and shower. Note that if you do not have your own tent we can accommodate, just let us know.

Meet Susanne, your host
Marcel Proust already knew:
"The only real voyage of discovery is not to look for new countries, but to get new eyes."
We stayed at Susanne’s over the weekend and it was just absolutely lovely. Susanne and her husband are so very kind. She brought us home made pumpkin soup that was to die for! And even though her husband had warned us about a dozen times not to get stuck in the mud with our van, we still did, of course.... but he made no fuss about it and just helped us to dig and pulled us out with his car in no time. The camping space itself is wonderful, with a lovely view and nice company from the animals they have. We thought we did a heroic rescue of sheep Guus, who had escaped the paddock, by rejoining him with his herd, only to find him standing next to our van again fifteen minutes later. I’m pretty sure he was laughing at us. Anyway, our stay at Susanne’s was just great and we’ll be sure to get back sometime.
Received very kindly, they are currently busy with building separate sanitation (I was allowed to pee in the bushes). I stayed on the pasture, just like a sheep mother with her two lambs, who regularly came for a neighbourly visit. I was allowed to choose whether I wanted to stay with them or in front of the pasture. Place enough, very worth repeating!
We had a wonderful night at Susan her beautiful place. We live only 15 minutes away but feel like we have had a wonderful break. Sheep Goof came to check our tent regularly;). The pigs are very sweet and grunt at you when you walk by. It was quite cold but Susan brought us a thermos with tea! We made a campfire in the evening, roasted marshmallows and enjoyed the clear sky with lots of stars.
We had a very good time! We enjoyed a beautiful view! We met friendly and hospitable family!

This camping place is so unique. We had a warm welcome, the host is so nice! She has given us a tour of the entire property. You can pitch your tent next to the sheep and chickens. A real experience. We enjoyed it!
We happen to know Susanne because she is a colleague of my wife. We had heard that we can stay there, so thats what we did now. It was good. Susanne and her husband are really relaxed. The place is also very nice. Wonderfully quiet (if you don't know better you really wouldn't think that it is near a busy city) and you can hear birds and frogs everywhere. For the children, it was also great fun because there are many animals, trampolines, etc. In the evening we all made a campfire with marshmallows. We had a lot of fun and will definitely come again.
We had an amazing time at the property of Susanne and her family. She first let us around, we were allowed to put our tent everywhere we wanted. We chose a cozy spot between a lot of green and near the two pigs and the sleeping area of the free-range chicken (she warned us for the sound but were kinda used to it, and love it). Just after we set up our tent Susanne came by with some refreshing drinks and nuts and to check if everything was alright. We had some meat for the bbq with us and she offered to keep it in the fridge for the time being. She is so kindly! To be short; amazing green campspace with fine sanitary facilities and beautiful surroundings.
The contact we had with Susanne was pleasant, we felt very welcome! We were allowed to choose our spot ourselves and there was plenty of room. We enjoyed it very much. In April it was still a bit cold, so we were able to sit warm by the campfire. We even got extra blankets from Susanne. Very sweet. Advantage of April: when we arrived, the sheep had just given birth to twins! Tips for the following guests: walk past the farm shop after the mill!
The campspace was amazing. We were welcomed with a cup of tea and some cookies. Extremely helpful! We enjoyed the quiet and green surroundings!
It's a really nice area close to Leiden, hosts are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend staying here.
We have now camped twice at this very nice spot near Leiderdorp. Good reception, good communication. She even brought a cup of coffee. We were allowed to use facilities such as the sauna. Super nice people who love to share the beautiful place they have. There are fantastic surroundings. A beautiful area with many windmills, many birds, lots to do. You can also kayak or canoe. The host also has a canoe available, which is great fun to do. We once cycled to Wijk aan Zee, which is 45 minutes by bike, a very pleasant trip! You have everything for yourself, so we camped wonderfully with a view of windmills and there was nobody else at all. We went twice already, twice in a row, it was that good!
We arrived late on Saturday evening but were immediately welcomed by Klaas, the campfire was already ready. Very friendly welcome, with an immediate tour of the garden and past the animals. It is nice that there is a toilet and shower. We could pitch our tents wherever we wanted. The first evening by the campfire we got a thermos with tea. On the way back we immediately received a friendly welcome with a beer and a cup of nuts. We felt at home here right away!
Behave nicely and do not leave a mess behind. And above all; have fun!
