You camp under the standard fruit trees, where a ditch separates the pasture from the nature reserve of Zuid-Hollands Landschap. We have 4 tent camping spots, so as not to burden the environment too much, so first come, first served.
Don't feel like pitching a tent?
Then you can use our de Waard tent, which we have already prepared for you. Fully equipped for 2 people.
Present: Duo sleeping mat 10 cm, 2 pillows, picnic table + chairs, 2 burner stove, crockery, cutlery, pans, Senseo machine, kettle, thermos, washing-up liquid, sink, washing-up brush, cloth, tea towel.
Bring your own sleeping bags, pillowcases and towels.
And don't forget your flashlight, it can be dark.

In the yard there is space for a camper van with a maximum length of 6 meters. You have a view of the South Holland landscape, where you can discover different bird species and occasionally see a hare running past.
The bathroom is located in the Hoge Schuur and has one shower and two toilet areas.

When the weather is nice, you can relax on our terrace, when it rains there is a covered place. In consultation you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner with us. Always vegetarian, from the garden and organic where possible. We are happy to think along with you if you have other wishes.

You can use our Pipo car all year round.
There is a double bed (140x200cm), a sink with cold water tap, duvet and 2 pillows. Please bring your own: towels, duvet cover, pillowcases and fitted sheet.
The use of coffee and tea is free.
The bathroom and kitchen are located in the Hoge Schuur,
that is why it is useful to bring easy shoes and possibly a bathrobe.

I would very much like to share our experience that we had at the nature campsite in Leerdam, with Maria.

What a special and beautiful experience we have gained in this beautiful place at the bottom of the dike of Leerdam. We were here at the end of April, when the fruit trees on the campsite were also in bloom.

Maria, the host, is a caring warm woman who knows a lot about nature, nutrition and gardening in the vegetable garden.
She is happy to share her passion for cooking and caring for others in combination with sharing this beautiful place where she lives with her husband.
We had pleasant conversations with her and her husband, who know a lot about the different fruit trees, birds, etc. in the area.

The small-scale campsite offers a lot of peace, but also comfort because we can use extras such as fire pit (we can buy wood for a small fee), the terrace with cozy seats, etc. The new sanitary area is neat and kept clean.

The view is beautiful and wide. The places for camping or the camper place are spacious and offer enough privacy.

If you like walking and / or cycling, you can make beautiful trips from here along the Lek and the Linge. The town of Leerdam is easy to cycle to.

We treated ourselves to a breakfast provided by Maria, which consisted of all kinds of fresh organic, vegetarian ingredients and local products. Really recommended.

The location offers a lot of potential for overnight stays and hiring of the rooms with the possibilities for complete care.

We will definitely come back to this place when the apples and pears are hanging from the trees or can be picked.

The weekend before King's Day (cold nights, northern wind, but lots of sun) we camped at Maria, near Leerdam.
What a wonderful place Maria and her husband Willy have created! Nice camping spots under the fruit trees, at the bottom of the Devendijk, with sheep as neighbors and a view of the nature of the Zuid-Hollands Landschap. A wonderful place for a small tent.
The bathroom, as you can call it, is attractively furnished with many characteristic elements and above all good and clean sanitary facilities and wonderfully heated. A beautiful outdoor space, partly covered, partly open terrace, where you can sit sheltered and in the sun with a view of the outside. Maria and Willy are very friendly and give you a warm and sincere welcome.
The camping spots, the Pipo house and the camper spot (and another meeting room) are brand new, built in and around their old barn with many authentic elements.
From this place you can make beautiful trips by bike or on foot along the Linge and to Leerdem and the surrounding area. Very nice!
Also a great place for a family or friends reunion with people who love the outdoors and camping. We will do that too!
Highly recommended for lovers of nature and the outdoors!
