Despite the bad wet weather we had a wonderful holiday. Being able to make your own pizza on the fire. Jac helps wherever he can. Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed the sand/mud kitchen during the dry moments and thinks we should definitely go back in drier weather. The covered space was also an added value due to the wet weather. There is plenty to do in the area in the wet, but in dry weather it is certainly also a beautiful cycling region.

How was the contact with the host?
Super. Very easy contact and very helpful. You certainly feel welcome there.

Tips for new guests?
Definitely going to discover it :)

Super cool campsite in the middle of the forest, quiet, all necessary facilities on site.

How was the contact with the host?
Great, the host came especially to see if we could get to the campsite with a caravan, since we had a rather oversized one :-)

Tips for new guests?
With a larger caravan you need to be careful when driving in and out of the dirt road onto the main street.

What a wonderful place to stay. Very child-friendly with lots of play equipment for the children. Our children (4 years and 2 years) had a great time. Both open spaces with grass and forest, a kitchen with everything you need. You don't actually need to bring much with you, a lot is already provided. Grab a campfire and enjoy!

How was the contact with the host?
We made a last minute booking and requested the reservation, we immediately received an answer from Jac and Lief. We received a friendly welcome and Jac showed us and the children everything at the campspace upon arrival. In short, super smooth and friendly communication!

Tips for new guests?
Don't feel like taking a lot of stuff with you for a camping weekend? Then you've come to the right place! Also for families with small children: book them, I would say! It is located along a N-road, so you do hear some traffic at night, but not very disturbing and certainly not that it keeps you awake.

We had a fantastic stay in the monastery garden and private forest. Very well catered for children, many facilities available. Very quiet also when we were there (end of September).

How was the contact with the host?
Jac was a very friendly person, very accessible if we wanted to know something.

Tips for new guests?
You can cook here on a campfire.
Bring marshmallows. Don't plan too many excursions, there is enough provided for the children to have a fantastic time.

What a beautiful place and how fun it is for children. You can also walk straight into the forest for a nice walk. We had less weather with rain, but there was a nice covered table in the outdoor kitchen where we had a nice sit. Toilet is also neat. The shower is open air, so it is less convenient when it rains, but that did not spoil the fun.

How was the contact with the host?
Jacq's sister received us very nicely and explained everything.

We had a lot of rain, but luckily we were high and dry. It is a beautiful and nice campsite. Lots of space for the kids to romp. Many amenities (especially the fully equipped kitchen was useful, because we had no more space in the car for kitchen utensils). Friendly people (both the host and the guests).

How was the contact with the host?
Well, Jac is a friendly, cheerful man who clearly does his best to make your stay a success.

Tips for new guests?
Find a higher spot for your tent if rain is expected. Leave kitchen utensils at home if you have little space in the car (four-burner gas stove, senseo, kettle, pans, plates, cutlery, mugs, it's all there).

We spent a full week at Jac and loved it. The location is so beautiful and the fully equipped open kitchen means you have to bring so much less equipment yourself.
We used the bicycles for free to explore the countryside and enjoyed the Alpaca hike (which makes a stop at the campsite) and all the other animals.

Jac was a perfect host, before and during our stay, always happy to help. Thank you for all the strawberries!

Jaq has a super nice place! a wonderful place to spend a weekend with friends and family. It is full of fun toys for the children, the wooded area makes it complete. A nice fire and bbq ensures that you do not get bored during your stay!

How was the contact with the host?
Jaq is super friendly, and it was easy to meet and book with him.

Tips for new guests?
be sure to bring food that you can prepare over the fire, the many logs and the beautiful tripod above the fire pit make it super cool to cook over the fire.

We slept 4 nights in the monastery garden during the Easter weekend. What a beautiful place!!
We were very warmly welcomed and despite Jac walking on crutches, we still got an extensive tour.

Everything is there to make it a wonderful stay.
From the garden you can step straight into the private forest to take walks in the beautiful surroundings.

There is a wonderful relaxed atmosphere. You can make a campfire if you want. Jac comes by regularly for a nice chat. And his grandchildren are also used to "strange" people in the garden. They just go their own way :-)

We enjoyed it very much and will definitely come back here!!

How was the contact with the host?

Going out with the kids in the winter months is always an adventure, but they really enjoyed it. Freedom to make a fire, the play caravan and mud kitchen created a new game every day. And don't forget the forest behind the campspace.

How was the contact with the host?
Super as far as I'm concerned. Jac welcomed us personally and showed us what we could find where. Good contact over the days via the chat function, which I really like.

A wonderful night camping! Also doable in winter because of the possibility to make a campfire. From the campspace you walk directly into the forest. Enjoy the crackling of the branches, the hopping of the squirrel and the cheerful twittering of birds. Highly recommended!

Jac is a very hospitable man who, with the personal contact, gives that extra something that is not available on a regular campsite.

Tell us about your experience
The very first trip with my van went very well. The monastery garden is a beautiful place where you can enjoy peace and quiet and from where you can easily explore the beautiful surroundings on foot or by bike. It also seems like a lovely place to go with my granddaughters during warmer days. This is a real play paradise for young children.

How was the contact with the host?
The welcome with coffee and a piece of cake was very warm. Jac was very helpful (which I have really appreciated as a camper layman).

Tips for new guests?
The monastery garden is equipped with just about everything you need as a camper. Forget something? no problem!
Tip: Be sure to try the hot shower. Even in cold weather (it was November) this outdoor shower is a must.

Wonderful experience with children. Play paradise with swing, trampoline, play caravan, outdoor play kitchen and gambling doctor. For fun, there is a campfire in the evening where you can enjoy a cozy moment with your marshmellows. Everything is there, so you can safely install yourself with only your tent and your own equipment. At the time we were there, there were also other children so that they could have fun with each other to their heart's content. The parents also had a moment for themselves. Recommended!
