Danny recommends this campspace

Our overall experience is that we had a very relaxing time here and our daughters (2 & 4 yo) loved to be around the horses.

The hosts are very friendly and have good availability via phone or on the premises. They offered our kids to brush the pony and have a little pony ride, so their dream came through.

The campspace is a grass field next to the owner's house and the horse stables. A clean toilet, shower and electricity are available on the field. Water is available a few steps away. It is easy to get to the shops of Veendam by bike.

Tips for future guests: as we travelled by camper we needed to empty our chemical toilet. This is not possible at this campground, so we had to empty this at a nearby camper parking.

With three teenagers we camped for a few nights with super hospitable owners Annemarie and Robert. Delicious! Beautiful lawn to stand on, spacious pitches. A new toilet and shower cubicle has just been installed on the field. The children played on the field and made rides on the ponies. Fantastic! We would love to come back.

We were able to stand at Camping Wilhelminahoeve in Veendam for a week with our fire brigade camper.
How wonderful we had it! Annemarie and Robert are very hospitable. The children have been able to help a lot with the horses, ponies, chickens and dogs. In addition, we have made fun rides.
At the end of the day, sit down at the large kitchen table to enjoy a meal.
Thank you very much for the special week! And we hope to come back here again.

We had a wonderful long weekend in Veendam. The camping owners were very hospitable. Our daughter was riding horses wonderfully. She was taught by the eldest daughter. She was allowed to help taking care of the horses. Our son enjoyed fishing. There is a lot of fishing water around the farm. He was also allowed to help on the tractor. As icing on the cake, they also looked after the children so that the two of us could go out. In addition to the horses there are also three dogs in the yard. Our dog was also allowed to run free. Made campfire in the evening. In short: very nice stay. 5 stars are well deserved. We are going back soon!

Unfortunately, our experience with this Campspace was not as expected. We had booked this Campspace from Thursday to Sunday but we left there early (on Friday). The main reason for this is hygiene. That was not in order, especially given this COVID-19 time. With the “new” toilet shower combination, there was no opportunity to wash your hands and the toilet did not flush. We had found out for ourselves that there is a sink inside Annemarie where you can wash / brush your teeth / do the dishes, but this was also not corona-proof. The host Annemarie herself seems like a nice woman but unfortunately did not have much time to explain and did not ask us the reason for our earlier departure. We understand that this was a novice campsite with start-up problems, but given the rate for 2 people with a tent, it did not meet our requirements.

Host annemarie has responded

Hello, unfortunately you as camping guests did indeed fall just a little bit between shore and ship. A few days ago we had a new unit on the campsite with shower and toilet, unfortunately and unfortunately no sink yet. For this reason, the camping guests are allowed to use the utility room, where there is an opportunity to brush their teeth, wash dishes, use a microwave, a refrigerator, a hob and a washing machine. Unfortunately when you arrived a number of camping guests just left and a number of new camping guests arrived for you! When you arrived I had to leave shortly afterwards because of my work at the Umcg. So unfortunately you did not have an extensive tour and I only heard later that the new toilet was not flushing properly. My husband made these immediately after we were informed about this. We had equipped the toilet with a hand hygiene pump. It was also very hot that day and we had not yet created any shady spots, now there is a large parasol of 7 meters in diameter and a white large tent where guests can sit in the shade. We are very sorry that you were at our campsite at the wrong time. I would like to give your money back and invite you to come back again at my expense. Greetings, Annemarie

From the beginning, arriving at Annemarie was comfortable. We arrived at sunset, with beautiful horses on one side, and a beautiful farmhouse with flowers on the other. Annemarie, Robert and their lovely two dogs welcomed us as if we were long time friends. We set up the tent and had some tea and coffee. There’s plenty of space for kids to run, for dogs to explore and you may even bring your horses to walk around the woods. We found a really nice 18 km route to walk in, highly recommended. The toilet and shower facilities are top notch, as are the picnic tables, the veggie garden and Annemarie’s beautiful flower garden. Robert and Annemarie are kind and compassionate people, and their lifestyle reflects that. They want people and animals to live the best life they possibly can. If you’re looking for a weekend getaway, this is definitely a place to go and then come back later to.

We enjoyed ourselves with Annemarie and her family in Veendam! We stood on a nice field next to a beautiful large farm. In the evening you can eat along with whatever is on offer, in our case we fell in the butter and it became a delicious and cozy BBQ. Annemarie's husband, Robert, is a cook and you can taste it 😋. Our camper was next to the horse box, so of course we had to drive! Annemarie and her daughter give riding lessons with a lot of love and skill. The children enjoyed it. In short, this place is like a warm bath that hopefully many people will enjoy!

We stayed at the mini camping site for 1 night with Robert and Annemarie. They are very helpful and easy. All facilities are perfect for each other. And otherwise something can be arranged. Our small children loved the horses. The campsite is a stone's throw from the center. And Veendam has a beautiful park in Borgerswold with play facilities for children. And a great water ski slope.

Last week we had a few wonderful days at the mini campsite with Annemarie and family in Veendam. I brought 2 horse girls and they think this is the best campsite ever. Hugging, petting, grooming, riding and even swimming with the ponies all day long. What a party! The campsite is free with spacious pitches and within walking distance of the center.

Lysbet recommends this campspace

A very nice, simple farm campsite, still under development, which was great fun to experience. During our stay a nice simple toilet / shower combination was built, when it got very hot Robert put up a huge party tent over the beautiful round pick nick table. We used their tent, upon arrival there was a vase of flowers ...
We had dinner twice (super tasty and cozy!), My girlfriend got a massage by Annemarie and came from there very relaxed.
Bicycle and equipment could be stored in the shed. We borrowed items that we had forgotten to bring.
It hasn't come to horse riding yet, but we'll come back for that!
Both Annemarie, Robert and their daughters are very hospitable and warm, we had a wonderful week!

We stayed in a little van with two people and two dogs and Annemarie and her family’s place. We just loved the combination of wonderful people and wonderful wood walks. And in the evening a stroll through Veendam. We even booked a second night.

Petra recommends this campspace

Very warm welcome by Annemarie. The possibility to eat with the pot for a small fee (the owner is a chef) is a huge plus! If you wish, it is simply brought to your tent. Many sights within half an hour's drive, such as the beautiful (swimming) lake of Nije Hemelriek, Groningen and the beautiful Fraeylemaborg. Recommended.

Margot recommends this campspace

Contact with the owner was pleasant. Responded quickly, and just let you go at the campground. Within walking distance of the city but in nature. The only drawback is that there was not much shade on the property. And the bathroom was very clean!
