About this campspace

At the foot of the Knokteberg (côté du Trieu) you will find our unique spot that symbolizes peace, enjoyment and becoming one with nature.

The meadow is a combination of mowed paths, camping spots, tall wild grass and flowers. Everyone has their own, shielded place.
The ideal place to use as a starting point for breathtaking walks or bike rides through the Pays des Collines, the Flemish Ardennes and the Kluisbos.
Even those who are just looking for peace and quiet will find it with us.

Child-friendly and surrounded by animals such as chickens, cows, horses and sheep. If you are lucky you will hear the calling of owls and foxes at night.

You can take a hot shower or use the toilet in our new sanitary block.

Outside you will find tables and chairs, as well as a sink where you can also take drinking water. There is also a large shared refrigerator.

Jovial and hospitable, I guarantee that my guests have a good time.
I grew up in the region and like to share a walking, cycling or visiting tip.
Living in the countryside, between greenery and animals is where I find my peace.

Tips

  • Bring your bike!

  • A walk through the beautiful Kluisbos and a drink at the Bosbaar or at De Toren are an absolute must!

  • You will find an Okey supermarket less than 2 km away, the shopping centers of Ronse are a 6-minute drive away

We celebrated my son's 12th birthday with a night of 'wild' camping in the shelter at Simeon.
The experience of camping in the open air and cooking on an open fire, with the luxury of a toilet and hot shower nearby. Thanks to the wonderful mattresses, we slept blissfully at a temperature below freezing.

How was the contact with the host?
Simeon received us warmly and showed us around and afterwards let us do our own thing. Because it was very cold, we were allowed to bring in extra wood.

Tell us about your experience
Beautiful small campsite in a beautiful part of Belgium. I stayed with my land cruiser (camper) for 4 nights. There is plenty to do within a reasonable driving distance. The driveway is nicely level and you just have 230 volts of power. Always nice.

You really have a natural feeling with the animals on and around the campsite.

All facilities were top notch and when the showers are finished there is really nothing more to wish for.

How was the contact with the host?
Simeon and his wife are both super friendly and helpful. They also walk around a lot so a question is quickly asked.

Tips for new guests?
Take into account noise from farmers and the animals! But hey what do you expect at a campsite like this one :)

Annelies

Tell us about your experience
It is a very nice camping spot, with proper facilities. We spontaneously got an extra sail against the sun at our tent, given the heat. There were chickens roaming free and a sweet dog and cat.

How was the contact with the host?
Simeon responds to messages in a timely manner and communicates clearly and friendly. Because of the heat fire was not allowed (we had booked wood) and he spontaneously suggested that the wood be returned, together with the deposit (belltent).

Tips for new guests?
Keep an eye on your food, because the chickens like to pick up something. We went for a walk in the Kluisbos and that was very beautiful (and cooling). We also went to have a look in Kwaremont: a beautiful village with cozy terraces and of course the famous Kwaremont climb of the Tour of Flanders.

We had taken the shelter to enjoy and relax for a few days. It was our first time in that area. My kids and I definitely enjoyed this unique place at Simeon. Here you can really enjoy the cosiness, the view and the nature. The chickens that walk around are super nice and funny to see. The toilet areas are very tip top clean 👌. Simeon and his wife are super friendly and nothing is too much for them to ask. Magic the dog is everyone's friend there😊. One word "Wow". We will definitely be back

Blissful place, wild and untouched. We stayed in the bell tent. was fine!

The same kind of people that come here. Adventurers… always blissful!
We arrived here by bike and would do it right back!👌

Beautiful place with nice view. From the campspace you can take a nice walk in the hermitage forest. Having a drink at the Bosbaar in between is definitely recommended.
The Sangria there is delicious!

How was the contact with the host?
Simeon is friendly and thoughtful.
We doubted whether our tent would be waterproof. Since thunderstorms and a lot of rain were forecast that night, we were allowed to use the shelter in case that happened. Luckily it wasn't necessary. Now we were allowed to use the shower and toilet in the house. Sanitary facilities for the guests were still under construction.

Tips for new guests?
Kluisberg walk. Making a campfire. Enjoy the sounds of nature!

Very nice and quiet place to stay. Spacious meadow with long grasses and flowers where separate camping pitches and corridors have been mowed.
Together with my 6-year-old son, we stayed 1 night in our tent on our spot next to the chicken coop. With the ordered wood we could make fire and food on the provided fire pit in the center of the meadow. You can also play in the communal garden with swing and tree house.

How was the contact with the host?
Simeon has received us very well and regularly visits the meadow to hear if everything is in order.

Tips for new guests?
Please note that there is a dog present. their dog Magic is a very sweet and social dog who comes by sometimes, she even comes to lie with you at the campfire.
This place is really recommended.

Tell us about your experience
Nice place, good outdoor toilet too. Tip: place an outdoor shower. Campsites were all full, at least 12 people. Sharing 1 bathroom is therefore not really that ideal nor hygienic, especially in corona times. Nice and good outdoor kitchen and seating area.

How was the contact with the host?
Good, smooth and short.

Rules

Please respect the domain and do not leave any rubbish. Burning waste, especially cans or aluminum foil, is also not allowed. Butts should be put in the rubbish bin, not in the fire pit.
Shoes must be removed when using the host's sanitary facilities.
Only the mowed zones and paths may be entered. So there is no walking through the tall grass. You can only play football on the play zone.
After 22h it should be quiet. You can play music for yourself, other guests do not need to hear it.
Placing a party tent is not allowed.
The animals on our property are not toys, give them enough space, parents must take their responsibility towards their children.

The host cannot be held responsible for accidents on the camping site or in the sanitary facilities.
The toys present are not approved but can be used at your own risk.

The Bell tent:
No fire or flame may be used in and around the tent (with the exception of the stove), so no candles either.
Shoes must be removed before entering the tent.
The use of your own heating device in the tent is not allowed.
The beds are high quality air mattresses so be very careful with sharp objects.
In case of damage or missing furniture / decoration of the tent, the cost will be recovered from the guest.

There is a 4-person tent that can be rented, for which a deposit must be paid on site. You set up the tent yourself and you also take it down again. In wet weather, you consult with the host to see if it doesn't stay standing better.
