About this campspace #s005017

Your host

Roel & Sandra

Be welcome in our beautiful garden. Every year we shape this place a little more towards our ideal paradise and we would like to share this. Dive from place to place, from the forest to the berry garden and from the fire pit in the outdoor bar. All this under the watchful eye of mother stork high in the tree.

We live on the Oranjekanaal just on the edge of the museum village of Orvelte. Here you can take a step back in time. In the spacious area you can walk and cycle for hours in woods and heaths.

20 years ago from Belgium sought peace and space in Drenthe. Here we live together with nature and would like to take others into it.

Tell us about your experience
Lovely spot in a beautifully landscaped garden on the edge of a grove and meadows.
The seat under the wooden shelter was ideal when it started to splash. Funny to experience the experiences of Mr. and Mrs. Stork from so close up.

How was the contact with the host?
Roel and Sandra are very hospitable and helpful. It's also nice to see how they want to live and live as sustainably as possible.

You stay in their backyard but you have a lot of privacy. Behind the garden is a small piece of forest, so you can't get closer to nature. Dog, chickens and many storks in the area. Had my tent set up to the east, so a beautiful sunrise in the morning!

How was the contact with the host?
The contact was very good, we had a nice conversation with Roel and Sandra. On arrival it was explained where to find everything and I was offered a tray of tea from Sandra. Well settled!!

Tips for new guests?
Sandra and Roel have made a nice sitting area where you can also light a campfire.
Make use of it.

Paul, thank you for your nice words!!

This cycling Irish Dutchman completely matches our environment:
quietly enjoying a cup of herbal tea, looking out over the land of farmer Nico and interested in the connection between people and nature.
Paul, we (and our dog Yindi) would love to see you again.

Nice, small camping spot with a view over the farmer's field. Wooden cabin on the property with the possibility for an open fire in a fire bowl. A pair of storks looks down on the camping site.
The guest toilet is located in the owners' home. That is absolutely no problem.

How was the contact with the host?
Great welcome, very welcoming and helpful owners.

Tips for new guests?
For the early birds: you will be woken up by the rooster, the clattering of the storks and the ducks also add to the fun :-)
Good tip: the historic village of Orvelte is within walking distance and well worth a visit.

Pim and son were again our first guests for the new camping season…. Always special!
They had a real father-son weekend and it seems that they succeeded very well.

Warm people. We felt really comfortable there. Thanks for the nice conversations!

Thank you for the meeting!
You managed to experience the maximum in that short time:
Walking, cycling, going out for dinner, experiencing nature, chatting, visiting a museum and, above all, laughing a lot!
Delicious!

Tell us about your experience
A great two day stay in a place where everything is right! I stood in the shade under the Notenboom. A stork's nest with two young that produce the most bizarre sounds, a view of the rising full moon, a wood fire... A wonderfully quiet base from which to explore the village of Orvelte and the surrounding area.

How was the contact with the host?
With Sandra and Roel (and the funny dog) it "clicked" immediately. My interest in the Drenthe landscape was immediately answered with a beautiful book and a folder with all kinds of routes and information to browse.
In between we had surprising, personal conversations about our shared interests.
A place where you feel welcome, I certainly hope to come back!

Tips for new guests?
Keep your distance from the stork's nest: they can "aim" quite well ;-)!
Sandra and Roel know the area well: ask for tips!
If you want to take a shower, you have to use your own water bag.

Roel and Sandra have a great place! We were made very welcome and had a wonderful time. We were allowed to use the garden and we also lit a campfire there together with Roel and Sandra. The place and the cosiness felt like coming home. Everything is beautiful within cycling distance. The stork had 2 cubs that were almost about to fledge which was a joy to watch.
