Meet Johan, your host
We enjoyed waking up to the sound of rustling poplar trees at this lovely campspace. The campspace is situated next to the cosy farm of our host Johan and his wife. The campspace is surrounded by trees filled with birds and pastures with sheep. During our stay, the farm featured some other lovely animals like cats with newborn kittens and even a buzzard s nest. The area features a lake, which is great for hiking and cycling with plenty of space for a picnic. The lake also offers a great opportunity for swimming and watersports. The lake is a good place for bird watching with lots of geese, swans, pheasants and many other species making an appearance. During our stay we dined at Restaurant Paviljoen Reeuwijkse Hout next to the lake, which is not the cheapest place, but offers excellent food with a view. Our host Johan is very outgoing and he was eager to accommodate our requests. All this made us wish we could have stayed longer but we are sure to come back soon. If like us you enjoy an adventurous stay at a secluded space with simple means, this space is an excellent choice.
The contact with the host was nice, welcoming and friendly. The location was nice with the possibility to make a fire, spacious view, sheeps in front of my camper van and clean toilet. Less nice were the mosquitoes (because of the water next to the camping spot?)
The location is on a farm right next to the highway so you could hear cars passing all the time. It is nicely situated since in good weather (we were unlucky with the weather) it’s close to a big lake and park where there seem to be a lot of activities. It also seemed a bit crowded for the space. There were already 3 large tents when we arrived and 7 people in a fairly small space. The Campspace was quite close to the sheep and while it was nice to camp so close to animals, the manure pile was too close to the tents. Even for someone like my friend who works with sheep every day. However the grass at the space was well maintained. Otherwise Johan was friendly and was kind enough to let us stay in large common room to be out of the rain. It’s not the place to stay for a more “rustic” experience but if you want to be close to Gouda and a nice lake in good weather not a bad place.
Showering is possible in consultation. There is a shower room especially for camping guests in the farm, so only available when someone is at home. Pets are allowed if they stay with you. This in connection with other pets in the area.
A fire pit is available as well as small wood for heating. If it is safe you can use it freely.
