About this campspace

At the back of our very large garden is a large HEATED caravan that has been converted into a super cozy tiny house. You sleep next to the horses in the middle of the greenery. This is the ideal place to completely retreat and reconnect with yourself or to enjoy being together in peace and quiet. The horses will keep you company.
The view of the animals gives you the opportunity to observe them closely and enjoy the movements within the herd. These animals are so authentic and pure. This teaches you to enjoy the little things in life.
Enjoying a nice chat around the campfire about the experiences of the day, about what the horses had to tell us, makes you realize how much these animals can still teach us.
If desired, you can help with their care.
The horses are also used during coaching sessions where they give you more insight into who you are. They show you what you need at this moment in your life to break certain patterns and make the right choices. They can also reveal dynamics within a family or group.
You can also enjoy beautiful walks and bike rides in the beautiful Hageland. When you cross the street, you walk straight into the Demer Valley to get lost for hours in the beautiful nature.
We live on the mountain bike trail. So you leave directly on the gravel into the Demerbroeken. My husband has everything you need to tinker with your bike:
Bike Wash, compressor, and knowledge of bicycle mechanics. Your bicycle is safe and dry under the shed or in the garage.
Other fun activities nearby:
- Sailing down the Demer (full or half day) from Aarschot or Scherpenheuvel
- Walking in the Merode (Abbey of Averbode)
- Visit Horst Castle (Castle of the Red Knight)
- Swimming in Lake Rotselaar
- Multi-day walking routes to bivouac sites nearby (Rillaar, Walenbos)
The pleasant city of Aarschot is also nearby. You can go there for cultural excursions, swimming, delicious meals, cinema, shopping, etc.
The caravan has 3 single beds and a seating area that can be converted into a double bed. There is a fully equipped kitchen with oven, refrigerator and freezer. A toilet and shower are also available. And of course heating for the colder periods.

Perfect for...

nature lovers, hikers, cyclists, mountain bikers, peace seekers, adventurers, animal lovers, families

We are a family with two daughters, 1 dog, 2 cats, 6 chickens and 2 horses. We recently moved from Antwerp to Betekom because we were looking for more peace, space, soil, grounding, biodiversity, slowing down and of course also room for the horses. In this place we can cherish our love for mother earth.
We are working towards being able to live as self-sufficiently as possible in the long run.
We don't want to keep this place to ourselves but like to share it with others. So feel completely welcome!
