In the courtyard of a former castle farm in 'Bachten de Kupe'
About this campspace #s004222
IT'S ALL ABOUT NATURE
Back to basic
Camping in the fall. You will be amazed how beautiful and fine it is. The trees turn orange, the landscapes disappear under a bed of leaves and you see how nature prepares for winter. Hours of walking and romping in the forest and then warm up with hot chocolate, a steaming bowl of soup or a cozy campfire.
-Bring dry wood for the campfire. A campfire is fun all year round, but in the fall, when it gets dark earlier and cools down faster, it is extra nice! Make sure you have dry wood to start a fire. Take it with you from home, so you don't have to try to make a fire out of wet wood. Make sure that you keep the stock in a dry place, otherwise it will be of no use to you.
-Use a Dutch oven to cook over the campfire. Prepare a delicious stew or hearty meal soup over the campfire, it is best to use a Dutch oven for this. These pans are specially made for cooking on an open fire, the legs under the pan do not smother the fire.
Do you want to get away from it all and are you looking for a unique place in the Westhoek to unwind? In current corona times we make our estate temporarily available for those who wish to camp in a beautiful piece of nature. We want to make you happy. Only accessible after reservation.
In the meadow of 't Kasteelhof, an unexpected green spot (3ha) with a wide view over the fields and the village church in the distance. The estate contains an orchard, a small grove and is completely surrounded by a hawthorn hedge, the favorite place of many birds. You can enjoy their singing talents and the sounds of nature. You often see hares, pheasants and partridges. Pure nature!
't Kasteelhof refers to a former 16th century castle farm, of which only a partly walled farm is still visible. It is located in the village of Beveren-aan-den-Ijzer, which is part of the Westhoek, also called 'Bachten de Kupe' ('Kupe' refers to the valley where the river Yser flows). Much of this region is characterized by its war history. It is located near Ypres, Heuvelland, the art village of Watou, Veurne, Diksmuide, the Belgian west coast and 100m from the border with Northern France.
Besides enjoying nature, you can also do a lot of fun activities:
> Wonderful cycling along cycling junctions
> Beautiful walking routes - eg the Dode Yzer walk can be started from here, about 10 km
> Wooded area where you can spot deer & the flat land towards the coast (the Moeren - reclaimed area in the 17th century)
> Fishing & canoeing on the Yser in Roesbrugge (1km)
> Golf & sailing in Oostduinkerke & Nieuwpoort (20 km)
> Tourist attractions on the West coast (20km)
> Plopsaland and Bellewaerde amusement parks (20km)
> Many war sites in Ypres and surroundings (10 km)
