Welcome to our farmers camping spot.
We have a modern dairy farm where approximately 130 cows are milked three times a day.

Enjoy camping on our lawn with a view.
Sanitary facilities are available at this location.
The toilet and shower is in the modern milking parlor, so don't be surprised to see cows running by ;)

The camping spot itself is quite ok and the view is nice (on the left, because on the right you look at the stable wall) but a cross country ride with the 3.5 ton camper to reach the lawn is no fun. The facilities are very basic and improvised. The description on the site should be taken with a grain of salt. "Modern" is not really an issue here and during the milking moments it is best not to take a shower or go to the toilet. For the rather high price per night you expect something more, especially in terms of hygiene, even though you know that you are on a farm.

How was the contact with the host?
The owners are very friendly and communicate well and extensively. No complaints in that area, they do their best.

Tips for new guests?
With a tent for a very basic night this is still possible, but for a longer stay or with a camper I don't really recommend it, sorry. I wouldn't even start with a caravan. Then there are other places for this price range....

Very friendly welcome. The tour of the farm gave us a familiar feeling. Farmer brother invited us to go swimming in the Frisian waters, which was very welcome at temperatures of 36 degrees. Centrally located base for exploring Friesland on foot and by bike. We were the only campers at the time which gave us a huge feeling of home. A must for those who love nature and tranquility!

How was the contact with the host?

What a wonderfully quiet place, with all the space and freedom! Really beautiful. The host and lady are friendly and proud of their beautiful company and are happy to tell you about it. The welcome was warm and they do not push themselves further. Just the way we like it.

How was the contact with the host?
Super nice. We were already waiting.

Tips for new guests?
They sell their own meat on the farm. Really delicious and highly recommended to try.

The farm of farmer Broer is 14 kilometers by bike from Leeuwarden. On arrival, he and his wife were already sitting in front of the house and provided a warm welcome. I was given a tour of the farm and was allowed to set up my tent on a freshly mowed patch of grass next to the stable where the newborn calves were sleeping. There are some trees that provide shade and the sunset is beautiful.
The toilet can be reached via the milk pit (!) and there is also a shower. In the evening around 22:00 the cows are milked which is nice to see.
