In the middle of the wide fields of the Flemish Ardennes you have a meadow at your disposal.

About the region:
Close to nature reserve Burreken, the Muziekbos and the Brakelbos. Numerous walking and cycling routes are nearby. The beautiful Maarkedal is also the setting for many cycling classics (the meadow is about 0.5 km from the Taaienberg). Vespa rental nearby (5km), just like some local (eateries) cafes and restaurants, a number of Sunday cafes, the Bosaarmolen (a very nice place for a picnic)...

Practical:
Outside tap where you can get water. The meadow is partially sloping, but there is also a large area completely flat so that tents can be installed on level ground. It is possible to light a fire in a fire bowl, wood is available on site (a wheelbarrow of wood).
Places to park a car are available (preferably not in the meadow itself, in case of rain the meadow is not accessible with a normal passenger car), local shops and bakery about 4 km away, Belbus stop 500 m away.

We are happy to welcome you and to show you around in our region!

What a blissful location to stay. Waking up in the morning with this view and a coffee = perfect!

As described, it is really back 2 basic without toilet etc. You know this in advance so you can take this into account.

We have had wonderful days!

Tips for new guests?
The Brakelbos and Muziekbos are both worth a visit and are only a few kilometers away from the camping site.

Super cozy brasseries, cafes to discover. Holiday in your own country!

Very nice environment, wonderful to wake up with a view of the meadow. In the end we thought it was a lot of money to just pitch your tent. For the same price you often have sanitary facilities included. Some decoration such as a sofa or tree stump at the campfire would have been nice too. Too bad the water bottle was not present and the campfire also contained waste from the previous visitors...

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly grandparents. Outside of 1 directive message from the hostess had no contact which is also a shame

Host Elien has responded

Hey Elien, glad you enjoyed the area! Also thanks for your feedback! I would like to give you some response along this way:
The meadow is located in the middle of an agricultural area with the advantage of the panoramic view, but the disadvantage that no toilet installation is allowed. We would like to mention this when booking the camping location. You already have the entire meadow at your disposal, without the chance of other campers in your area :)
We leave trees upright instead of turning them into stumps or benches. The stump of a fallen tree last year is now completely consumed ;)
We ask every visitor not to leave any waste out of respect for nature, a pity that your predecessors did not do this, in that case feel free to give me a heads up and I'll come by!
I take care of communication via Campspace and can also be reached by telephone for additional questions. My grandparents live close to the meadow and are indeed the point of contact on site if I cannot be present when you arrive. They love meeting new people every now and then!

See, I hope you like this! Many greetings, also from my grandparents, they were very happy to meet you!

Beautiful view over the typical rolling landscape of the Flemish Ardennes. Behind the colorful flower field you can enjoy a beautiful sunset. Water and a fire bowl with wood available.

How was the contact with the host?
Elien is very hospitable and her grandparents are also very friendly. With her grandmother you quickly start a conversation as if you have known them for years. Elien responds quickly and is present on time. Top lady

The meadow of Elien is located on the top of a hill in the middle of the Vlaamse Ardennen: the view is perfect, it is extremely quiet, the sky is clear and the stars numberous, and the fire place is very practical. We really enjoyed our stay here, and would recommand it to anyone who would like to immerse themselves in the nature in Flanders. It's quite reachable by feet+bus as well from Ronse or Oudenaarde, so no need for a car.

How was the contact with the host?
The host replied very fast and provided all the informations we required during our stay.

Really enjoyed our stay at this lovely spot, it was pouring rain, but that didn't spoil the fun. We woke up to a formidable view. Small remark, a pity that there are 'traces' of predecessors.

How was the contact with the host?
Smooth contact, host could not be present, but received very clear agreements by text.

We had a great time, it's a beautiful location and communication with the host was great!
The facilities are very basic, but that is also clearly indicated in the advertisement.
It really is the perfect location to go cycling, and is on the route of the Tour of Flanders (blue loop).

September 2020 · Translated from dutch

Host Elien has responded

The advertisement indicated that the location is suitable for campers and that is also the case when it is dry (as was the case with us). The meadow is on a hill, so when it rains it can sometimes be difficult to get back to the top with a van. Maybe that can also be mentioned in the ad?

It was our first experience with CampSpace and it was immediately a great one! The contact with the host was really easy. She was flexible and very helpful. The location is completely private and very beautiful! It's a bit 'back to nature', because there's no toilet on spot, but this didn't bother us at all. We really enjoyed the campfire that she provided for us and the beautiful views on the meadows and the horses. It was a beautiful, romantic getaway! I give it a 5 star review!

Wonderful place for really basic camping. Fantastic hostess. Meeting was very easy. She provided a bottle of (drinking) water and firewood. Absolutely great. I would provide a shovel and accompanying paper and ask people to bury their “biological waste”. We always have one, but there were already some “traces” of previous guests.
