Tell us about your experience
A nice quiet place in a very nice rural area. We were allowed to choose a place freely, because we don't need any facilities, we could stand all the way at the back, alone on the water, quiet, idyllic.

How was the contact with the host?
very friendly, attentive.

Nice quiet environment.
On arrival we were able to pick a spot to our liking.
Had a great time, partly because of the beautiful spring weather

How was the contact with the host?
Great experience, on arrival we were immediately welcomed and we were told the necessary things.
Our host did his best to create an electricity connection as he does not have a standard connection.

Tips for new guests?
There is no shower but for one or two nights that was fine for us.

Tell us about your experience
Wonderful little site. We didn't need electricity and parked at the far end of the camper space, to be surrounded by small canals full of swans, herons and other birds, and with a view over meadows, traditional windmills and farm animals. At night it's completely quiet except for the noises of the cows (and don't forget to drink their fresh milk in the morning, available from the farm directly)

How was the contact with the host?
Jan is a great host and responds quickly both by email and by whatsapp/phone

Tips for new guests?
We cycled to Kinderdijk, crossing the river Lek a few times by ferry. Wonderful cycling over dykes and along the small canals.

Also visited a cheese factory near Bergambacht, selling the best cheese ever.

A nice quiet place on the edge of the Vlist in the green heart. Enough space, clean toilet and a small shop with coffee/tea, drinks, ice cream, eggs and fresh raw milk.
At the time I was there there were only older people. 2 restaurants nearby where you sit on the quiet water of the Vlist. With good weather you can swim in the Vlist.
At night you can hear the cows and in the early morning the birds. Well worth it for an overnight stay.

How was the contact with the host?
I only saw Jan briefly on the first day and immediately got a number of tips.
How and where the camper was located did not matter to him because it was not (too) busy. 2 of his daughters always walked happily and greets continuously. It was very jovial.

Tips for new guests?
Fly swatter is not superfluous
Swimming shoes if you want to get in the water
Blocks to straighten your camper
Bring a reel if you can't stand close to the power pole (otherwise Jan will know something about it)

Top location in all its simplicity!
And yet also within walking distance of Schoonhoven.

Tell us about your experience
A very nice place to visit 'the green heart of the Netherlands'.
Looking for a nice casual place appeals to us very much and the friendly and helpful Jan and family also provide a welcome feeling.
Nice places within cycling distance and Schoonhoven even within walking distance!
It was quite soggy due to the heavy rain, which caused several campers to get stuck. Where necessary, however, everyone was neatly pulled away with the shovel and all without a single murmur.
The location is nice and quiet and with beautiful views. Highly recommended!

The camper place in Vlist at farmer Jan is very nice.
Good places alone, you should not have a too heavy camper. They were difficult to get out of the swampy ground.
Toilet fine, maybe a shower in time?
Small shop with good products from the farm. And friendly host.

Farmer Jan's mini campsite is located in the middle of a vast polder landscape. The spacious camping pitches have a beautiful view over the polder and a mill. Local products are for sale at the campsite, such as fresh eggs, milk and a cup of coffee or tea. The center of the silver city of Schoonhoven is within walking distance. The Old Dutch center is very cozy and definitely worth a visit. The area is perfect for a bicycle or canoe trip through the peaceful nature.

We were received by a cheerful woman on the dike already. Very nice and warm. We found ourselves a place in the old orchard right next to a ditch. There is a toilet but no shower, we don’t mind that. Some vegetables from the vegetable garden can be bought, tasty fresh eggs and fresh milk from a vending machine. Colostrum is also available on request. The landscape is like an old school poster. The nights are dark and wonderfully quiet, in short, a must.
