Are you looking for peace, space, unobstructed views and do you want to enjoy the simple farm life? Then you are most welcome at our small, active dairy farm.

We have two spacious camping spots available for you. From both places you have a beautiful view. Our meadows partly border on the Grote Gaastmeer. We have a mooring facility for your own sailing boat available.

Pitch 1 is suitable for 1 touring caravan (max 6 m, max 2 persons) and has a private shower/wc. Electricity and drinking water included. It is possible to place your own small tent (max. 2 children up to and including 16 years).
There is a small surcharge for this.

Place 2 is suitable for 1 self-sufficient camper (bus) (max 7 m, max 2 people). Drinking water and hot water available. Possibility to deposit dirty water.

Max 1 dog and/or max 2 day visitors are allowed for a small extra charge.

During the grazing season, our (about 50) dairy cows are outside. At the end of the afternoon the cows come to the barn to be milked. If you like to collect the cows together with the farmer, that is possible. In addition to our cows, we have a sweet farm dog, a red male and a brown laying hen.

The beautiful Eleven Cities town of Workum is about 7 km away. Workum has 2 supermarkets, various cozy shops and eateries. For culture lovers, the Jopie Huisman museum and the Warkums Erfskip Historical Museum are definitely worth a visit.

Not far from the farm is the village of Gaastmeer. You can go here by bicycle ferry. In Gaastmeer there is a restaurant with a lovely terrace on the water and there is a small supermarket.

For the walkers among us it might be good to know that our farm is located right along the St Odulphus route. A 260 km long pilgrimage path along the pearls of Southwest Friesland.

Bird lovers can indulge themselves with us because of the many meadow birds such as lapwings, black-tailed godwits and water chickens. Sometimes we spot a buzzard or small owl. Furthermore, the necessary swallows, starlings and tits. Part of our meadows are breeding grounds for meadow birds in the spring. To protect the nests, no mowing is done here until a certain date.

We hope to welcome you. Oant shen!

Your host, Boer Marten

We would like to introduce ourselves to you. We are Marten and Esther. Marten's dairy farm is located on the beautiful Grote Gaastmeer in It Heidenskip (Southwest Friesland). For us the most beautiful place in Friesland of course!

Marten has about 50 dairy cows that he milks twice a day. In the summer season the cows are outside during the day. In addition to all the work on the farm, Marten is very interested in old-timer tractors. Landini is his favorite brand.

In addition to her job, Esther is busy with the advertisements and bookings of the camping spots and the pimping of an old caravan.

Besides the dairy cows we have a sweet dog, a red male and a brown laying hen.
If our work permits, we enjoy outings together.

Loud music, parties, nude recreation and campfires are not allowed. Please keep the camping site and sanitary facilities tidy. After 10 pm we appreciate peace and quiet because of our animals.
