Cheerful and free camping on the edge of the "Cadetten Kamp" nature reserve.

Would you like to relax or be active? You can do both in our 2.3 ha forest.

There is only one camping spot in the forest at a time. A unique place for you alone or with a group in a beautiful forest.

The landscape offers a variety of different tree species and there is a young food forest. There is a survival run course where you can practice your survival skills (your safety is your own responsibility!).

You can also enjoy walking or cycling to the nearby 'Cadettenkamp', this beautiful drifting sand area, which is part of the Teteringse Heide, or to nearby towns such as Breda, Dongen or Dorst. There is an official mountain bike route through the Teteringse forest, which is one of the best entertaining routes in Brabant.

Our forest is securely fenced in, so that no pedestrians or cyclists pass by.

There is a nice compost toilet in our forest and a fresh water tap, which is 200 meters away.

You may make a small fire in the designated fire pit and use branches that are already on the ground.

You can pick fruit from the young food forest, but do so in moderation and only pick what you need!

Please take the waste with you on departure or deposit it in the waste bin.

Smoking on the property is not allowed due to possible forest fires.

Perfect for...

Nature lovers, adventurers, hikers, cyclists and mountain bikers

Welcome! My name is Samantha Pellicaan-Dik, 47 heights young, together with my husband Quillermo we are the happy owners of a large piece of forest. We love to share this beautiful forest with nature lovers. I run my own company, SaPeDi, where I make beautiful products from the pruned wood that is in the forest. In addition, there are also relaxing activities in the forest, such as sound massages, sound sessions and meditation. My husband, Quillermo, is a fairly fanatic survival runner himself and has built an entire run course with pruned trees. In 2019 we planted a whole food forest, which is still growing and to which we spend a lot of love and time. It's very nice to be in the woods, who knows, you might hear and see our buzzard!

Teus

Tell us about your experience
We arrived in the dark and mainly saw the gas station on the highway. The next morning we found out that we are actually in the woods where people are mountain biking and hiking. We found it unique

How was the contact with the host?
Very good contact with the host responds quickly and is flexible

Tips for new guests?
The water tap is a 10-minute walk away, so a jerry can or something like that is handy

Host Samantha has responded

Hi Teus, thank you for your review! The forest is indeed adjacent to the highway with the petrol station. It is also very bare in the forest now, because it is almost winter. So, you can also look further than when it is completely green. But, glad you found it a unique spot in the woods.

What a cool place! I had the forest all to myself and my dog alone. I wanted to write my book quietly and that worked out perfectly! Also the happiness of a full moon and a clear sky. Very successful stay and definitely worth repeating.

How was the contact with the host?
Very nice. A wonderful meeting with a like-minded person. Samantha welcomed us very nicely and showed us around.

Tips for new guests?
If it has been wet in the days before, take some (kindling) wood with you to light the fire. Then you can enjoy a nice fire in the fire pit afterwards. Fun with two or a small group, but also very pleasant alone if you like that.

Exactly as described and as I expected. Although you are a stone's throw from 'civilization', it still feels like you are really out of it. You can hear the mountain bikers, but they do not cause any nuisance and in the early and late hours you are not bothered by it at all. Gathering wood, sawing and making a campfire feels nice back to basics, nice that this is also allowed. The toilet is simple, but fine. You can get water a few hundred yards away - I didn't know this and didn't really have anything with me that I could carry a reasonable amount of water in, so it's helpful to keep that in mind. The fence around the site is of good quality, so the dog could run free all the time. Survival run course is fantastic! We would like to come back again.

How was the contact with the host?
Excellent: fast and friendly. The host was waiting for me at the entrance of the site and texted me some final instructions. Also easily accessible afterwards and easy to contact via WhatsApp.

Tips for new guests?
Bring a jerry can or something similar to transport water to your camp!

We had a wonderful stay in the forest. It is a huge piece of land that you have all to yourself and there is a nice flat spot where the camper / tent can stand. There is a fire pit, a super clean toilet, a food forest. Fantastic place where you really have the feeling of being completely in the middle of nowhere!

Very nice place where you have the forest all to yourself. It is a bit of a search when you arrive, but Samantha was there within 10 minutes to show us the place. We were with a camper van, and we could park it almost next to the fire place. We really enjoyed a lot. In the evening you can hear some of the road behind it, but otherwise it is wonderfully quiet. Also nice to walk in the area, or to try out the survival course.

Tell us about your experience
Beautiful piece of forest, because you are alone also very quiet. Spacious place, nice safe fire pit and a food forest within reach. Seen a Roe deer at dusk, the Buzzard even landed in a tree a few meters away. Also seen a Squirrel, Woodpecker, Bats and Field Mouse. The forest around it (Teteringen, but also if you walk a little further towards Oosterhout) is worth a visit. Recommended if you are looking for peace and nature!

How was the contact with the host?
Very pleasant contact and hospitable, more than sufficient explanation. Also nice how the owners step by step promote biodiversity with the new plantings.

Tips for new guests?
Check Google maps beforehand, if you follow Survivalrungroep Teteringen you will get there automatically.

Tell us about your experience
Had wonderful days in the beautiful forest. Spotted roe deer, heard young hawks, saw woodpeckers play and much more seen and heard.

My mother had a dome tent and I hung between the trees with a hammock and tarp. Place enough to completely relax.

Very spacious fire pit to enjoy a campfire and cook on.

The highway is close by, but that does not outweigh all the beauty and pleasure that there is to experience.

How was the contact with the host?
Always great communication with Samantha. Both before and on arrival. Because there was a cancellation, I even got a message that we didn't have to check out on time. This was very relaxed leaving so we could even see the beekeeper at work.

Tips for new guests?
Take a (foldable) jerry can with you, the water tap is a short walk away and so you immediately have stock and you don't have to go back and forth.

If you bring a BBQ grill you also have the option to cook on fire. Enough wood to make coals and to rest the grid on.

Tell us about your experience
One of the few places in NL where you can really camp 'wild' WITH the opportunity to make a fire (in most places that is now prohibited). Beautiful piece of forest in a nature reserve where you can stay undisturbed. A fence and bushes protect you from the many mountain bikers and hikers that pass by.

How was the contact with the host?
Samantha was very generous and friendly. We thought that we had to stick to the usual times (from 15.00 and before 11.00), but this is just in consultation. Once on site, she gave us a tour through the forest and since my son showed interest in the survival track, he spontaneously received a lesson in technique from the man of the house. All very relaxed and friendly.

Tips for new guests?
- There is a water tap 400m from the forest. So you don't necessarily have to bring your own water like we did, but an empty jerry can is enough.
- There's real bows of deadwood.
- The compost toilet has toilet paper.
- There is a bench and a fallen tree around the fire pit. So you have a seat.

Top camping spot! We were also lucky to be here with a full moon, so there was extra light. Place is easy to find, for us the only "pity" is the lighting of the gas station 500-700 meters away. On the other hand, it also somehow has its charm that you have the idea that you are camping "illegally" in the wild.

Extra nice is the fact that you are the only guest on the camping site, so you can get away romantically for a few days here with a campfire option!

Samantha is super friendly, explains well how everything works, and where you can find what.

Beautiful piece of forest with a lot of nature loving marks from the owners. Such as there own little shitake farm and everywhere young baby trees to improve the diversity. You can tell that the owners have put a lot of energy and time to make it this great. Unfortunately they had no facility to do our dishes and the highway was a bit to close.

Nice spot, I'm very curious when all the new plantings have grown. The highway is 300 meters so you can hear it well in the beginning. After a while you don't hear it anymore. It is 15 min there and 15 min back if you go to get water so take some bottles with you. Enjoyed 2 days between the trees and in the evening sat by the fire.

How was the contact with the host?
Perfect, very friendly woman and told fascinating information about the forest plot and the work performed.

Very nice experience. You have the forest to yourself. There is a fire pit. We were allowed to use herbs from the herb garden. The eco toilet is clean (and very nicely made). The survival course is fantastic (although we have to go back ourselves to try it out). Samantha gives meditation classes in the forest. She takes her time and you get a lot of personal attention. In the area you can enjoy hiking/mountain biking. You can hear the highway, but we had little trouble with this.

Enough ingredients for a few wonderful relaxing days. Recommended!

What an experience to be alone in the forest. You really have the feeling of being wild camping legally. And if only we loved that. It is a site with different vegetation and a beautiful campfire pit where you can make a fire to your heart's content. In other words, a top site which, on the other hand, is a bit too close to the highway. But you can get over that monotonous sound. At least we live in a country where we have to share everything. Either we will definitely come back.

Samantha is a lovely woman who showed her terrain with great pride and passion. She had all the time for us and is very hospitable.

Lovely place in the forest, all the space around you. You really have the idea that you are camping in the wild. Nice campfire place with enough leftover wood! And a beautiful area too, plenty to do. Only downside I found that you can hear the highway quite well. But that was known in advance so it didn't come as a surprise. To be repeated!

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly and received an extensive explanation about the forest and the facilities.

Tips for new guests?
Bring enough water with you, because the water tap is just too far to walk to.

Tell us about your experience
My overnight there was amazing. It's a beautiful location in a small forest , very close to the sand dunes and just a 10 min walk from civilization but without all the noise. Many hiking options around the spot and also nice bike runs. Its one of the few campspace locations in NL that is fully forested, very highly recommended!

How was the contact with the host?
Samantha responds quickly and is a great host. She also gave me a very thorough intro of their property, the garden, plants, trees, hiking ideas, etc.

Tips for new guests?
Avoid pitching directly under trees if possible as branches might fall with strong winds. (There is a nice open area next to the fire pit)

A unique and special location! We have always wanted to sleep in a piece of forest without being afraid that the forester will come out from behind a tree. With Samantha, that dream has come true!

Your own place in the middle of the forest! If you're not averse to walking for some water and not averse to being dirty (no shower), then this is a wonderful place!

The highway is audible, but it didn't bother us for a moment. You can wake up in the early morning by cycling mountain bikers who like to have conversations at high speed and therefore cycle over the paths screaming.

How was the contact with the host?
Fine! Fast and friendly!

Tips for new guests?
Bring a large jerry can for water.

Beautiful camping spot on a private (and fenced) forest plot.
Nice that there is a (compost/sawdust) toilet.
The owners try to enjoy the forest in all kinds of ways through active forest management, creating a food garden and, last but not least, by building a real official survival course.
The nearby motorway unfortunately gives a background noise, and the mosquitoes unfortunately did not leave us untouched. But yes, that's nature too.
All in all, a nice camping spot on a beautiful and secluded forest plot. You have a wonderfully free feeling.

How was the contact with the host?
Fine, we were well and actively welcomed and guided around the site.

Tips for new guests?
Public water tap a few hundred meters from the plot, at the Cadetterzand car park. Make sure you have enough water bags, jerry cans or something similar for fetching and storing water.
Be prepared for mosquitoes.

A beautiful forest to relax in and leave the rushed life behind

How was the contact with the host?
Good! Nice contact in advance, a tour through the forest on arrival and a pleasant conclusion afterwards

Tips for new guests?
Take something from a water reservoir with you if you don't want to leave the forest during your stay if you are doing a (mini) retreat like me. There is a nice water tap a few hundred meters outside the forest.

We thought it was a beautiful place and we would love to come back again. It was also very special to be the only campers allowed to stay in the forest. As a result, there was a lot of peace and privacy.

How was the contact with the host?
The contact in advance was fine and clear. On arrival, Samantha also gave us an extensive tour of the forest. Afterwards she also inquired about how our stay was. All in all a very nice host!

I was looking for a place for myself, in nature. A place to relax, meditate and reflect. I definitely found that place! A piece of forest with nothing else. Perfect for what I wanted to do for 2 nights. There is a toilet and water is also a short walk away. As far as I'm concerned, that's just enough for easy camping. Top location and highly recommended for anyone who wants to escape the crowds and come to themselves in a minimalistic way.
I would definitely recommend a meditation session with Samantha for enthusiasts!

How was the contact with the host?
The contact was nice, correct and very smooth!

Liv

Tell us about your experience
What a super nice place! Here you camp in a beautiful piece of diverse forest that you have to yourself for your overnight stay(s). I think that the feeling of wild camping in the Netherlands (which is unfortunately not allowed) comes closest here. We had only booked one night, but would have liked to stay longer anyway.

How was the contact with the host?
Good! Samantha responds quickly to text messages and was ready to give us a tour of her piece of greenery. Very nice to know more about the place where you are going to sleep and what is there and to see in terms of nature.

Tips for new guests?
Especially: go here if you like that into the wild feeling. Here you sleep completely without other guests and not directly in someone's garden, so it cannot be compared with other campsites or camping spots in the Netherlands. In the evening, make a fire in the campfire pit with collected wood and during the day take a walk or relax with your camping equipment. Just book ;-)

A real forest experience all to yourself. Private. Interesting to hear what's growing and how the hosts have handled it so far. You can easily cycle to Breda or Oosterhout. Beautiful walking and cycling routes. You are next to the highway but you get used to that noise. The offgrid toilet really very neat and clean.

How was the contact with the host?
Nice contact. Clear explanation at the start. It's also fascinating to hear what they've been up to in the woods.

We camped very well. Here you really have the feeling that you are camping in the wild. Beautiful forest where you can relax. The survival track is also very nice. In the evening sitting cozy by the campfire makes it complete.
We enjoyed and will definitely come back.

How was the contact with the host?
We were kindly received by Samantha. She showed us where everything was and told us about the forest and what to do in the area.

Beautiful natural environment where you can walk. If you like mountain biking, there is a mountain bike trail.

We were kindly received by Samantha who could tell us extensively about their forest. The assault course that we were also allowed to use was well put together and is also used regularly. There was a nice fire pit and wood at the camping site so that we could light a small fire. There was also an outside toilet.

How was the contact with the host?
The contact was good, she told us everything about the forest, the changes they have made.

Weekend camping in the woods. Beautiful grounds and very nice (walking) environment. In the forest received extensive explanation about the trees and the (food) forest. The forest was not yet ripe for food, but I did discover a huge amount of raspberries nearby. Can you find them too? Tip: a piece of heath on the left at the entrance of a forest. Worth it not just for the raspberries. Also spotted a buzzard pair in/around the forest. A nice addition could be a watchtower. On Sunday I also did a meditation in the forest with a personal and nice guidance and setting.
On my first day there were campers present who made more noise than I expected. That was a pity. But I consider this an incident. Not common in my opinion. I'd love to come back!

Clear contact and very friendly. It is a beautiful unique place in a private forest where - due to the limited number of campers that are allowed - tranquility is guaranteed. In addition to your hiking boots, bring some clothes for climbing and scrambling on the impressive self-built obstacle course on site

Kindly received by Samantha, beautiful surroundings and many animals spotted on the property such as buzzard, deer, squirrel and bats. The highway makes some noise, but you don't hear that anymore after an hour. We definitely recommend it

Patricia was very friendly and her story about their forest was very interesting.
They have already done a lot of work with the piece of young forest and the survival course is really cool (and very challenging!)
We liked that primitive feeling and we slept well too
I hope we can go again soon because it is a unique place in a beautiful environment!

It was a nice place to spend the night outside. I enjoyed the birds.
The environment with the sand drifts is beautiful.
Don't expect an idyllic spot in the woods, because the highway and the illuminated gas station are visible and audible next to it. And from the terrain you can clearly see that a lot of work is being done to revitalize the piece of forest. The owner Samantha talked about it very enthusiastically. I'd love to come back again.

This was a prime location for us! Lots of nature to walk in, a private piece of forest with a fire pit, but still close to a supermarket. It is possible that people use the survival track, but you won't notice that on the other side of the forest. Samantha was very friendly and helpful.

We had a complete family weekend in a very beautiful piece of nature. The contact was super easy and friendly from the start. Samantha gave us a tour and gave us all the important information. You really notice that they really love nature and are happy to share it with guests. Despite a lot of wind we were able to take a nice walk and light a nice fire in the evening. On Sunday we also did one of the mountain bike routes which is definitely recommended. Through Samantha we got the contact where we could borrow bicycles. We will definitely come back again.

We had a very nice stay in the private forest of Samantha and Quillermo! A survival course has been built at the beginning of the forest, with wood from the forest. Super cool, but quite difficult to do!! Still a fun and active activity if you stay here. We were all alone in the woods with the camper, wonderful! In the evening we made a campfire and enjoyed the peace. You can hear the highway in the background, which is not far from here. But that didn't really bother us. We were early in the season so not much vegetation yet, but we can imagine that in a few weeks the forest will be beautiful! The food forest they are working on is also super fun! Very cool to see that so much attention is paid to nature!

The location in Teteringen was very cool. A private forest with no entertainment and facilities other than a fire pit and a shovel in case you needed to 'go'. Maybe not enough for everyone but it was just what we needed this weekend. Samantha was quick to respond via the website and welcomed us into their forest upon arrival. After she and her husband left We got the fire going in no time and we prepared a stew that we'd let simmer over the flames for a couple of hours while we explored the campsite. Morning came too soon and we look forward to coming back.

It's a nice place to be, I have seen bunnies and falcons near the camping site.
The owners were nice and showed me the way to the supermarket which was a bit further up. I do recommend taking a larger water bottle with you, because it's a short walk to the pump.

There was also a fire pit. You can go mountain biking very well, lots of trails and a beautiful area. to do this.
Definitely recommended for a walk in the dunes.

The only point was that I found it a pity, is that there is a car along the forest and you hear it now and then. So it is not completely silent. But rarely in Dutch places so...

So nice place!

The private forest of Samantha is the ideal place to spend a few days outside and relax with your family or friends. The only thing you have to worry about is whether the fire is still burning well. I couldn't have wished for a better place in the Netherlands for primitive camping. The area is also beautiful and has enough to offer for a few days of hiking and/or mountain biking. Samantha is also very helpful and responds quickly when you have questions.

It is advisable to bring a large jerry can for water because the tap is a short walk from the site

Super nice place in a private forest! Samantha had given us a nice tour and told us about all the plans they still have, such as the food forest, the shivers they make for the hedgehogs and the abundance of birds that visit the forest. Also present was a nice fire pit with enough firewood which we have made good use of ;-)
The only downside was that there was no toilet facility.

If you are looking for a gorgeous setting for your next primitive camping trip this is the perfect spot! The Campspace offers exactly what we look for when we plan a minimalistic outdoor experience. Situated on a nice stretch of private forest where we could build our tarp shelter with a proper fire pit to keep us warm and to cook our dinner. The Campspace also offers a challenging obstacle course which adds to the survival setting. The surrounding area is also very forested and has great opportunities for hiking and mountain biking. Samantha is a very helpful and friendly hostess. She was very eager to accomodate any specific requests we had and took the time to send us a tip as to where we could possibly go to rent bikes. We had an amazing time during our stay which was far too short to experience and see all of these things. Therefore we would be eager to come and visit this place again soon!

A quiet getaway to reconnect with nature

I had a very relaxing stay in the middle of the woods, surrounded by trees, squirrels and a lot of fresh air. A perfect place for a quiet getaway and to reconnect with nature... Samantha was a very open and kind host who showed me around the site when I arrived. She gives mediation workshops in the forrest as well if you are interested. I will revisit this campspace again whenever I feel the urge tot escape the fast life.
