About this campspace #s004661

Sleep peacefully in a comfortable and romantic Bell tent in the orchard of the idyllic organic farm 'De Speelberg' close to the city of Leuven.
#despeelberg

Under the walnut and fruit trees, surrounded by horses, next to the Chartreuse forest and with a view over the hedge country valley, you will automatically relax.

Everyone can play on the Speelberg; challenge yourself on the trapeze, trampoline, high swing, slack-line or circus hoop.

You can cook in the communal outdoor kitchen on the covered deck or on a tripod by the fire pit.

Take a shower in the open air with a view over the fields and feed our trees using the compost toilet.

What do we provide? You will stay in your own Bell tent in the orchard, which is part of a larger farm. You will possibly share the orchard with other tenants - if this is allowed by corona - who you will meet at the communal outdoor kitchen and cozy fire circle. In any case, we keep the numbers small while the place is big and everyone has their own corner.
You will be surrounded by grazing horses, watched over by our friendly big guard dog and sang to by owls, crickets and howling foxes.
In the tent you have electricity, drinking water, light, information brochures and a double bed with sheets and towels.
In the communal kitchen you will find water, a sink, fridge, a gas stove with an oven, cooking utensils, plates, glasses and cutlery, coffee, tea, olive oil, salt and pepper, washing-up liquid, towels, sponges and toilet paper. Basically, you just have to bring your own food!

It is wonderful to relax and meet at the fire place. We provide firewood for which we ask for a free contribution. You can also collect your own wood in the forest. We provide a large barbecue and a barbecook (tripod with large pan to hang over the fire).

There is a long dining table with chairs on the covered deck. You will also find a table with two chairs at your own tent.

You can shower under a solar bag in the open air or you can fill the cast iron bath with water and light a fire below, after which you can bathe in the orchard. We provide biodegradable soap and shampoo and toilet paper for the eco toilet.

If you would like to come with more than two people you can bring your own tent for an additional charge of 15 euros per person per night (children under 12 years for free).

As a guest you can bring a guitar but we prefer not to have amplified music. We don't see our neighbours but they can hear us :)

Rules

You can bring your own dog as long as it can behave around horses. We also have our own dog on the farm.

We hope that guests come to enjoy the sounds of nature and leave there amplified music at home. We don't see our neighbours but they can hear us! We like to keep it quiet after 22h.

We tend to our farm with the biggest respect for nature and its animals and expect the same from you. This means that cigarette buts and other garbage belong in the bins.

Only bio-degradable soaps are available and to be used on the land.
