It is possible to camp in the 'hôf', a field that borders the cycle path between Leeuwarden and Bartlehiem. From here you have a beautiful view of the river Dokkumer Ee.
There is a simple shower, washing facility and toilet trolley.

We look forward to seeing you!

My name is Ylse and together with my parents I live on a dairy farm in Friesland. We live here with great pleasure and enjoy the beautiful nature and farm life. We like to share this with others and find it important to give people a glimpse into farm life.



We have spent a number of wonderful days with the camper with Annemarie and her family. We could choose a spot on the site next to the farm. At night it was wonderfully quiet. Our daughters immediately loved the (good) horses and enjoyed the cuddling and the rides that Annemarie offers. We stayed an extra night and on the last day the three of us even went out for a ride!
Within cycling distance you will find shops and we also really liked the tea garden that is nearby.
A place to return!

What a nice stay in Stiens! On a farm far away from civilization you are on a beautiful field with up to 2 others on the Dokkumer Ee. You can watch boats all day long! And it was also very pleasant to be able to take a dip in the heat of this summer. There is a small motor boat for rent and we have looked extensively at the cows, calves and horses and also helped. The most beautiful and tastiest shower in the stable of the farm. Enjoyed the hospitality and the place. Recommended!

The host (a family) was accommodating and gave us a tour around their dairy farm and allowed us to feed their calves. The farm itself is nestled in a quiet area, next to a canal used by many boats. The facilities are basic, but all you need. And the farm dog, Boeke, is a delight!

Ylse, the host, was very quick and prompt in answering my queries. The moment we arrived at the location, we were in love with the farm and the spot for our tent. So green, quiet and next to the farm animals. Ylse and her family were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. My son (10yrs) and I were waving at the boats passing along the river from our tent`s door. The toilet and basin were basic, but very clean. We definitely will go there once again in August, with friends this time.

The first place in Stiens might be a bit basic, but everything was there. Especially the peace and beautiful place made up for it. The tour of the 🐄 company was also fun.

We had a wonderful stay. The camping field next to the farm is beautiful; next to orchard and overlooking the Dokkumer Ee with passing boats. We had a lovely swim in the canal, there is a nice restaurant within walking distance and the farm is on a bicycle route to Leeuwarden. Ylse and her family are very hospitable; we got a tour of the farm, the children were allowed to bring the horses to the stable and play with the sweet dog. Sanitary is very simple, but spotlessly clean. Highly recommended, a beautiful place

The campsite is located at the end of a quiet road by the water, no traffic except for some boats. Lovely little place! Nice people with a farm with cows, calves, and “Doeke” the dog. Everything was there, shower, toilet, and laundry room with kettle and picnic table, which is nice for me as a “bikepacker”. If you like peace and quiet, this is an ideal place.
