About this campspace

Peace and seclusion on a meadow in the tree-lined natural garden in the middle of the fields await you.
No luxury, but a lot of area. ;-)
Listen to the nightingale by the pond or watch buzzards above the treetops.
So relaxed you can then turn to the nearby cultural and leisure activities, walk in the footsteps of the Romans in the Archaeological Park or discover the historic city center of Xanten and then refresh yourself with water sports (e.g. water skiing, SUP) on the South Seas.
I offer 3 tent sites at the same time.
There are wildlife cameras on the property.

Perfect for...

My garden is my favorite place, here I feel intensely connected to life. I would like to share my joy with you.
Unfortunately, I don't speak Dutch and my English is also rather rudimentary. But I can use a translation program. :-)

For about 15 years I have been trying to develop the site ecologically in order to offer the native flora and fauna a retreat.
This includes: elimination of neophytes (unfortunately I fail with neozoa, see nutria) and colonization of native plants (bird feeders, etc.) etc. There is also a dry stone wall, Benje hedges, nesting holes for birds and bats, a compost (in which one already sometimes a mouse weasel can meet), piles of stones and much more.
