About this campspace #s005249

Your host

Freia

Our garden is the perfect base to discover the beautiful Limburg nature. It is located between the Zwarte Beek Valley and the Teut and Ten Haagdoorn, the largest heath area in Central Limburg.
Here you are right on the bicycle junction network. By bike you are 10 km from Kelchterhoef and Hengelhoef, 17 km from Bokrijk and 20 km from Cycling Through the Trees.
You can enjoy the delicious beers of Ter Dolen Castle within a 10-minute bike ride.

Our garden is accessible via a service road and is close to the forest. There is a good chance that you will spot some deer in the morning (or who knows, a wild boar...). You have the entire garden (+ parking space) completely private at your disposal because we have two gardens. We call your part 'the orchard'. You can simply pick and enjoy the gooseberries, raspberries, plums and apples hanging there.

When we are at home ourselves, there is the possibility for a nice breakfast. Be sure to ask! Any other questions are of course also welcome. By the way, we are happy to give you tips for excursions - after all, we enjoy our surroundings immensely.
I hope to see you soon!

Our two days with Freia and Tim were blissful. A beautiful spot in the garden with a view of the forest and high grass. Freia and by extension her family were very hospitable and very helpful, we got some nice chats on top for free.

How was the contact with the host?
Very good, very accessible and helpful host who is ready to help and who also thinks along, gives tips,…

Very nice location to spend the night!
You sleep in the lightly healing garden, just on the edge of the forest. We heard the wild boars grunt, and saw one run away.
Don't panic, the car with camper/mobile home gets on the mini-hill very quickly.

How was the contact with the host?
The hospitality was outstanding. Very warm welcome, offered us an extra blanket, and fresh herbs from the garden. Thank you for the fresh eggs!

Tips for new guests?
Barefoot path in Lieteberg.
And an aperitif at Ten Dolen Castle Brewery!

Tell us about your experience
We had a wonderful weekend with Freia and her family. The garden is idyllic and very private located behind their house. Camping at the edge of the forest was great fun! We even spotted a wild boar on our wildlife camera! Freia also provided us with delicious fresh eggs and flowers for the camping table. So thoughtful!

How was the contact with the host?
Freia and Tim are very welcoming and very helpful. They thought along with us about practical things and had great tips to do in the vicinity!

Tips for new guests?
Ice at Rossi is a nice walk through the woods from 'camping Vranken'. And the Molenheide wildlife and walking park is also recommended for a nice walk with children. The area is also very good for a wild harvest meal.

Dearest Demelza and family,
Thank you very much for your nice review!
It was also really nice to have you in our garden.
You cleaned up everything so neatly, even left us toilet paper (so thoughtful) and we got to know Google Lens (Tim has already finished half our bookcase :)).
Thanks again for the beautiful drawing of our 'Camping Vranken'!
Love,
Tim, Tilly and Freia.

Bad weather. That's the only negative. But we didn't let that get to us. Excellent base for walking and visiting a museum in Hasselt (in our case).

Nice spot in the back of the garden, more than enough wood to burn. You can easily walk into nature from your camping spot.

How was the contact with the host?
Freia and her husband are very friendly and hospitable.

Tell us about your experience
Very cool campspace in a nice garden on the edge of the forest. You are all alone so a lot of privacy. There is also the possibility to make a campfire in the evening. There is water available and also a toilet that you can use. Within walking distance you are directly in the woods where you can take beautiful walks. You are also close to the cycle route network so you can easily go on bike rides. Lovely region by the way.

How was the contact with the host?
Freia and Tim are two hospitable hosts who make you feel at home. They will advise and assist you and also give many tips about the area. It all feels like staying with friends or family. Two toppers so we will definitely return to this campspace.

Tips for new guests?
There is really a lot to do in the area: Vallei Van de Zwarte Beek and do the red walk there, the nature reserve De Teut - Ten Haagdoorn and knit all the walks together there, the mine terrils of Heusden Zolder, b-Mine in Beringen, cycling with bicycle junctions, ... in short, an area where you will not be bored even with bad weather like we had. Definitely recommended is the bike ride to the Zwarte Beek and afterwards cycling in the area there. Numbers to the Teut: 308-316-300-305. Number to the Zwartbeek: 308-307-518. Certainly do

Thank you Freia for your warm hospitality. We enjoyed the quiet garden and all the goodies, also very nice that we were able to spot a deer. We processed the apples into apple pie and compote, best apple pie ever with your apples! Thank you greetings Martijn and Sofie

Nice free place on the edge of the forest between the fruit trees. Received wood for the evening to make a campfire at the fire place.

How was the contact with the host?
Very sweet involved owners. Friendly reception. Seat with fresh flowers and eggs was ready for us. They told us extensively about the area.

Tips for new guests?
Nice walking and cycling in the area. Castle ter Dolen, a 10-minute bike ride away, is definitely worth it. Tasty home-brewed beers, possibly with a guided tour.

A lovely place to stay overnight. Chairs around the fire pit were ready. Unfortunately, it rained a bit on our first day. When the weather was nice the next day we could borrow a bicycle. Awesome.

How was the contact with the host?
Fine. We were helped with everything
