Meet annemarie, your host
Besides my work as a pediatric nurse, I really enjoy working at our farm.
Together with my oldest daughter I give private lessons for horseback riding at our farm.
I also love to be busy in our garden / vegetable garden!
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.

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 had a very pleasant stay in Veendam. Annemarie was very friendly and you camp in a spacious field.
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.
