Tell us about your experience
Beautiful setting, ideal for children, cooking outside was fun, lots of wood for a campfire. We only missed an awning on the retro caravan and a decent garden furniture. When we came back from a terrace there was a camper parked at right angles almost against the caravan and there were 2 people reading outside so there was no privacy for us anymore and we sat in the caravan net, we thought that was a shame but the rest was all fine

How was the contact with the host?
Contact was fine, Jac is a nice, nice man

Tips for new guests?
Give each other some privacy and don't stand too close to someone else, not everyone likes that, even if it's camping

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!

How was the contact with the host?

Had a nice time! Nice people, lots of play opportunities for our daughter and the place is certainly in order! The place is located on a busy road, and we found the noise of cars, trucks and tractors disturbing, especially in the evening / at night. Without it we would definitely give it five stars!

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly and pleasant presence (eg at the campfire).

Super verblijf! Aangename plek met veel ruimte. Proper sanitair en en goed uitgerust keukentje. Het kampvuur maakt het helemaal compleet.

Super goed, vriendelijk mensen die zeker willen zijn dat alles naar wens is.

We are very satisfied with our stay in 'Kloostertuin aan het bos'. Jac has done his utmost to make it something very pleasant. Our kids were also wildly enthusiastic... They were not bored for a minute!

How was the contact with the host?
Jack was a very good host. The welcome was not only very warm, Jac also helped us with many things afterwards!

Tips for new guests?
In short, it is highly recommended to stay here. We will definitely come back...

The host was enthusiastically waiting for us and showed us the way to the Campspace. However, the puddle through which we had to drive the mobile home was quite deep, which caused damage to the rear of the camper. Due to the bad weather it was very muddy everywhere and we almost got stuck. Probably a nice place in good weather but a less pleasant experience for us.

How was the contact with the host?
OK

Tips for new guests?
Nice place in the sun with the tent. Narrow path for mobile homes.

Jac's camp space is super nice! Located in the backyard of an old monastery, the place borders a lovely forest. You can walk nicely in the area. We were allowed to see a nest with 5 young barn owls :)

Jac is super friendly and was enthusiastically waiting for us on arrival. Super location on the edge of a forest with many play options for the children. Possibility to make campfire and even an owl that lives in the garden.

We enjoyed our stay in the caravan. Warm welcome from Jac, who gave some tips for the neighborhood and tasty fresh eggs from his chickens. We cooked on the campfire and warmed up to it. Everything for cooking is also present in an outdoor kitchen (gas stove, microwave, Senseo, kettle, pots, pans, crockery, ...). Electric fire in the caravan, so you don't have to suffer from the cold. Pluses are the tranquility, the child-friendly garden with many toys and the beautiful surroundings (Bonte beestenboel petting zoo and short legs path). Highly recommended!

It was a very cozy caravan, small but nice.

The hosts were very kind and we were allowed to use the kitchen outside, we could make a fire at the fireplace. There was no hot water or shower but for one night no problem .

Beautiful forests nearby !

A 5 star stay in the blauwbossen of hoogstraten. As a first experience with campspace the tone is set by very friendly hosts who make their moto of 'sharing their beautiful garden' with guests, fully true. With this kids paradise and the beautifully facilitated campsite, it will be very hard to meet the same high standards in a next experience! Thanks Jac and Lieve

At the beginning of August we stayed with our three children in Minderhout on the beautiful grounds of Jac and his wife.
It was wonderfully quiet, on the edge of a forest, with a view of a beautiful garden, under old large trees.
There were clean sanitary facilities and you could use a kitchen and the garden furniture that were there.
A lot was also provided for the children, so they were able to play fully, especially the go-cart with trailer and the swing were a success 😊.
The campfire was cozy and made for a nice evening meal.
A place where we felt very welcome and where we definitely want to come back.

We were warmly welcomed by Jac and his wife, with a drink on the terrace. We were given a tour of the domain, and were then able to settle in.
We had a super 4 day stay at this campspace. So peaceful, in the woods, waking up with the birds chirping. Beautiful area for walking.
A toilet and an outdoor kitchen are available on the camp space.
We could make campfire every night. The children had a great time there.

Our stay with Jac was perfect, a deluxe version of camping in the wild with an amazing space for kids. Jac and his wife were very kind. The spot has a kitchen, toilet and outdoor cold water shower, however we made little ‘baths’ for the kids in a big bucket with the water cooker. Worked like a charm. There is an open fire spot, incl bbq set up, a mud kitchen, playhouse, trampoline etc etc. You can really tell that they have multiple grand kids :-) All in all, a great place to stay and we will definitely return.

The entrance with a monastery is not to be missed, with a large number of sheds and facilities in the garden behind it. The outdoor shower is indeed a bit cool, but if the sun is shining it can be nice! Although Jac was not at home upon our arrival (as indicated in advance), it was no problem to find the backyard and set up the tent. All amenities are clean and complete, the pre-stocked fridge with drinks and eggs for a small fee was a pleasant surprise! Do bring your own pans. Coffee maker with pads was also provided. Especially recommended for families with young children, many play facilities.-----Brandon recommends this place:::The contact with the hosts was great. They are very open and nice.

We krijgen een kopje thee aangeboden en hij geeft wat uitleg over de locatie. Daar kan je namelijk niet naast kijken, een oud klooster verbouwd tot een woning met ene prachtige tuin. Via een boeren weggetje komen we achteraan in de tuin terecht aan de rand van het bos. Een groene oase met een heerlijke (koude) buitendouche. De kleinkinderen laten direct alle leuke speelhoekjes zien, een modderkeukentje, trampoline, schommel, klimrek, skelter, ... . Ideaal voor een gezin met kinderen. In de tuin vind je plekjes in de zon en in de schaduw. Voor ieder wat wils. De campspace is voorzien van een mooi keukentje en een propere wc, de ideale uitvalsbasis om de streek rond Hoogstraten te verkennen!
