About this campspace

As the last plant nursery of a suburb of Ghent, we have managed to preserve a hidden piece of green in the advancing buildings, our greenhouses are located next to the Scheldejaagpad to Ghent center on the one hand (4km max) and the land of the Tour of Flanders - Flemish Ardennes on the other side. We also border the Liedermeersparkje with children's playground. the pitches are located next to the horse pasture that you reach via our private road... in the middle of a residential area... totally unexpected green oasis. We like to call it our city jungle. If you like nature, space and still some vibrant life.

We, sports enthusiasts mtb, connoisseurs, nature lovers work hard in our greenhouses, but above all we try to live a life where you don't have to take a holiday.... and are happy to share our spots of nature with you. At our greenhouses - in the middle of a quiet residential area on the outskirts of Ghent, you suddenly discover a large green oasis where our donkeys, pony and horse stand adjacent to the Liedermeerspark (with old-fashioned coffee house and brand new playground) and the towpath along the Scheldt that you so to Ghent warehouse at a maximum of 4 km. Unpaved paths - both on our mountain bikes and in terms of life, we mainly try to walk our own path and like to let people enjoy it.
Our picking garden in Merelbeke also offers a mass of tasty organic vegetables during the season. Seize the day and enjoy Mother Nature. We have fire pits, wood, an outdoor shower with cold water, in very hot weather large water bowls for the children as a splash pool, do not hesitate to ask.

Tips

  • Ghent is a warm, beautiful, cultural and vibrant city... tips galore. the many summer bars along the Scheldt, such as Gazon and the Flesjesfabriek, are also great.

  • cycling, walking, city trips .. with Bikeghent .. if you want to see a completely different side of Ghent, definitely do it!

  • Summer bars along the Scheldt, or incredibly tasty restotjes in the center of Ghent, or La traverse here just across the ring canal bridge ... so much choice, too little time

Carol

Tell us about your experience
Camping spot on a large meadow with use of the stable because of the rain. Located between greenhouses in a park near the towpath along the Scheldt. About 6 km by bike to the center of Ghent on the towpath.

How was the contact with the host?
Stephanie is a wonderful hostess. Provided good reception and directions. There was a basket with camping gear ready such as a table, chair, gas stove and the like. She also spoiled us with eggs and vegetables.

Tips for new guests?
Showering is under a garden hose...

thank you very much Carol, you were unlucky with the weather but hopefully still enjoyed it. Showering was allowed with us as an emergency solution and we are working on reopening a sanitary block. You were very nice guests. grtjs
