Welcome to our holiday farm in the beautiful Sauerland!

Our pitch for self-sufficient caravans and mobile homes is ideal for families and a wonderful starting point for hikers and cyclists. Our pitch is right on the edge of the forest and in the "Rübenkamp-Melbecketal" nature reserve. In addition, our horse paddock is right next to your pitch, so you can watch the horse granny graze and your children can pet and groom it. The pitch has electricity and drinking water connection equipped and of course has WiFi. Children also get their money's worth on our farm. They can let off steam in a small playground, visit the ponies and explore the grounds with the Kettcar. Fun for the whole family!

On a journey of discovery in the Sauerland

The nature reserve stretches between our holiday farm and the site of the Karl May Festival in Elspe. Covering an area of less than one square kilometer, the Melbecketal is home to a multitude of unique habitats. The Sauerland is a very densely wooded region with a high recreational value. Located in the southeast of North Rhine-Westphalia, the region is criss-crossed by many small streams and rivers and offers great opportunities for hiking, cycling and water sports. Visit historic castles and palaces, lovingly restored half-timbered houses and gain insight into a long mining tradition.

Perfect for...

Nature lovers, hikers, holiday with dogs, couples, cyclists, families

Our family has lived on our holiday farm in the idyllic Melbecketal since 1307.
In the past we have farmed with livestock, grassland and arable farming.
Unfortunately we had to give up farming for health reasons and have been renting out a holiday home and holiday apartments to holiday guests since 2006.
We have been renting natural camping pitches since September 1st.
We really enjoy this work.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon.

Tell us about your experience
A very nice parking space right at the playground. My children loved it, spent most of the time on the trampoline, doing their laps with the Kettcar or being with the 2 ponies in the paddock. Very neat location.

How was the contact with the host?
Nice and helpful hosts with whom you can talk well.

Tips for new guests?
Great place to go with children.

Host Andreas has responded

Hello Axel

Thank you very much for your positive assessment of your camping holiday and the pitch on our holiday farm.
It was nice to see that their children had a lot of fun.
For info.
The parking space they had was not at the edge of the forest but at Am Diek 1 because they did not come with their large caravan on the actually booked space.
There is no playground at the parking space at the edge of the forest.
We would be very happy to welcome you as our guests again soon.

Many greetings
Your family verses
