OUR YURT IS CLOSED UNTIL MARCH 1

Our yurt is located in Hoogmade, next to our farm, in a small orchard, where there are 2 pear trees, 3 apple trees, a plum tree and a cherry tree. You have complete privacy, because it is enclosed by a large hedge (which is bare in winter) and water. You have a view of the polder, where our horses and the neighbors' cows walk in the summer.

There is a video on our fb page Yurt in the orchard.

We have a clear dome, which means it's light when it's light outside. If you find that annoying, you could bring a sleeping mask. Possibly. also available from us.

There is a BBQ available.

There is Wi-Fi.

Coffee and tea can be consumed unlimited.
There is a 2-burner induction plate with pans.

There is also the possibility to visit a cheese farm. (not on Sunday)
There are beautiful cycling and walking routes nearby, including around the Braassemermeer. You can find them on the site around kaagenbraassem.
At 5 minutes by car you can swim at the Wijde AA Woubrugge, in open water. Also dogs.

Smoking, fondue or stone grilling is not allowed in the yurt. This because of the air that pulls into the canvas.

Leiden is nearby, where you can visit many sights.

Possibility to moor a sloop within walking distance. 10 euros per night. Please report in advance.

From September 1 to March 31, we are forced to increase the price to 90 euros per night. Because of the high energy prices. Until then 75 euros per night.

The yurt is very cozy and private in the orchard. View of the meadows with horses and cows. Plenty of life in the ditch too. Lots of birds to hear. Very quiet, especially during the day.
In the evening we did hear airplanes .

The yurt is nicely furnished and very complete. Sanitary fine.
We enjoyed this beautiful place. You can be in Leiden in no time and a day at Katwijk by the sea is also very doable.

How was the contact with the host?
Fine, hospitable. Good reception. In between, she leaves you alone. When we went home, we got another cheese from the neighbor, cheese farm, and a nice mug with our names on it. Very nice.

We had a super time in Gemma's yurt! The dog was also welcomed with open arms. When we left we even got a personalized mug! Hospitality was great, we lacked nothing! Gemma also gave us tips for where to take the dog. We took him to a dog beach (half an hour away) and the dog had the time of his life! Thank you Gemma ☺️

Thank you for the review. The train and the occasional plane is correct. It is the old HSL that you occasionally hear, when the Thalys drives by, you do not hear it. And the planes are there when Schiphol uses the Kaagbaan, which fortunately is not often.

The Yurt is on the water, so the chance of mosquitoes is quite high. So bring something against the mosquitoes :-)

What a nice cozy yurt. Everything is there. Wonderful quiet place. We had bad weather. Actually wanted to eat somewhere but we found it so cozy in the yurt that we just cooked delicious in the yurt. Nice warm stove. When the weather is nice you can sit outside. Nice cheese farm as neighbors. Make tasty cheese. In the yurt are also other regional products that you can buy. We had a wonderful stay. Definitely recommended!

How was the contact with the host?
Gemma is a spontaneous, friendly, very hospitable hostess. Has a heart for the cause. Responds quickly and you can always contact us with questions. She arranged for us to watch the neighbors make cheese. Very nice. Great host!!

Tips for new guests?
Due to the bad weather, we have not seen much of the area, but the Limoncello from the cupboard with local products is highly recommended :-) Take a look at the neighbors how they make cheese. Are also nice people who enthusiastically tell...

Dear Sylvia,
Glad you had a good time. The neighbors do indeed have delicious cheese and it is nice to have a look at the cheese factory. You did indeed have bad weather, but then it is nice and cozy inside. Hopefully see you again with better weather.

It was a wonderful experience! The arrival already starts at the driveway, idyllically through the meadows you come closer and closer to a beautiful spot, private but spacious and open behind a high hedge and between the fruit trees. You are welcomed by a wonderful hostess, and the yurt is really beautiful inside! Very special construction. We enjoyed this beautiful place. Delicious!

We absolutely loved our stay in Gemma's yurt! The yurt was so spacious, pretty and well stocked with everything we needed. The spot is so pretty and private, with little swans swimming in the stream outside. Gemma was an incredible host, from meeting us when we arrived to giving us a farewell gift. We absolutely recommend this place!

We liked this place so much that we booked two more nights two months after our first stay. And sure enough - fantastic again. Gemma and Hans are such nice people, we felt completely at home. The yurt is very spacious and fully equipped. The garden is also great for sunbathing, reading or having a BBQ. Highly recommended; I'm sure we will come back for a third time :)

How was the contact with the host?
Very good, Gemma responds very quickly to messages.

Go to the neighbor's cheese farm or buy one of the cheeses from the regional cabinet in the yurt. Delicious! Furthermore: especially enjoy the green garden and the beautiful view.

Communication was perfect, I booked on very short notice but Gemma replied to all my questions quickly and completely. Very hospitable welcome. The yurt is perfectly placed in the little garden, there are many (water)birds to be spotted closeby. The yurt and the garden are separated from the main house by a hedge, it is perfectly private. Everything about the yurt was very clean and comfortable, the appliances all work very well and the whole space is outfitted with the comforts of home. The view from inside the yurt is beautiful! There are beautiful bike rides in the vicinity (follow the fietsknooppunten), but I mainly stayed in the garden and the yurt which was like a holiday and home away from home at the same time.

Tell us about your experience
Gemma and Hans run a yurt in Hoogmade because they like to share a piece of their property with other people. We visited this property in the winter and stayed for two nights.

The yurt is very tastefully decorated, very warm and cozy. There is a kitchen with a fridge, a sitting area, dining table and a wonderfully adjustable bed. Everything is coordinated in terms of color and atmosphere. In the fridge were some delicacies from the region. We could use or buy these at reasonable prices if you wanted to take it home. We were allowed to use coffee, tea and various types of spreads. It is wonderful to stay in the yurt; especially in the winter season.

Outside the yurt is a fixed BBQ, which we used two evenings. Despite some wind and in the dark it went well. You can enjoy walking in the area, there are even routes through the meadow.

The hostess Gemma is particularly hospitable; that the guests have a good time is her top priority. So we really lacked nothing.
We were welcomed enthusiastically and Gemma had arranged something nice when we said goodbye. All in all one of the best and nicest Campspace locations we have been to.

On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Gemma who showed us around the yurt and the sanitary facilities (a 5-step walk next to the yurt). Everything looks spick and span and everything has been thought of: there are games available, the kitchen and the electric stove work fantastically and there are delicious regional products for use in the yurt but also to take home (for a small price). payment). We enjoyed the delicious mustard and jam. We spent a night there in the autumn/winter, which made the yurt extra cozy, but it also seems lovely in the summer. All in all enjoyed our stay!
