What a beautiful beautiful spot!! After we had set up our tent, we sat breathlessly enjoying the view, with the extra treat of the kingfisher and two harriers.
The sanitary facilities are very nice and the other facilities were also nice. It was such a nice stay that instead of taking another campsite, we cycled straight to Haarlem. Because "it couldn't get any better than this"

How was the contact with the host?
Fine, quick answer. Maria was not there herself during the day, but had given one of her guests excellent instructions to welcome us

What a lovely spot! My girlfriend and I enjoyed a weekend camping with Maria. We had a beautiful view over the water and nature.

The sanitary facilities and all seating areas on the terrace were super nice, and we were also allowed to use the cooling, which makes camping just a bit more luxurious ;)

Thank you for the beautiful weekend Maria! We came home completely relaxed.

Maria is a very sympathetic host! She gave us a tour of the grounds and thought along with us. She also had many good recommendations for the area.

Stayed here one night with a friend. It's great! Very nice place on the water, where if you are as lucky as we are you can spot a kingfisher and hear owls calling at night. In the evenings you can enjoy the fire, and the sanitary facilities are also beautiful. The hosts are very nice and hospitable. Really recommended!

Tell us about your experience
I like nature and wild camping. Despite the fact that you are at the bottom of the dike with a road on it, you imagine yourself in the wild. Surrounded by coots, birds and sheep that also enjoy the open piece of nature with a beautiful ditch along it.
There are many places of interest in the area, including Fort Everdingen and Fort Asperen, the leaning tower of the Betuwe, many bunkers and there are clog paths along the edge of Leerdam and if you want to, you can easily reach large cities.

How was the contact with the host?
The contact was pleasant and very hospitable.
Maria gives a lot of information about the area and what to do.

Tips for new guests?
Less suitable for large family tunnel tents because you camp between fruit trees and it could also disturb nature. Ideal for a trekking tent where you want to enjoy nature to the fullest.

View of the cows, baby coots that scurry past your tent, the peace and quiet and nature, a drink on the terrace of the tea garden, the enormous hospitality of Maria! We felt very much at home, welcome and equipped! We enjoyed the walking, the nature and our place along the water, the friendly atmosphere and the sincerity of how Maria runs this with a clear love for nature and her guests! Thank you Maria, we will definitely be back!

A wonderful stay with beautiful lush  green views and water. The communal facilities are also well kept, modern and comfortable. We had plenty of space for our sibley tent and with only three other campers on the site we could enjoy this small camping and it’s tranquility. 

As mentioned before, you do have the dijk behind you, where cars and motorbikes zoom past, but it was liveable.

We were guests at Maria's farm for one night with our camper. After our arrival we were warmly welcomed and Maria showed us the farm. Everything was designed with a lot of attention to detail. There is a very nice kitchen area and the sanitary facilities are super nice and you immediately feel very comfortable. The nature and the view is amazing. The highlight is the vegetable garden where Maria grows organic vegetables. We had a super nice time and are very impressed by this dream place.

How was the contact with the host?
The mail contact was super friendly and uncomplicated. Maria has responded to messages within a very short time. We are very enthusiastic about Maria and enjoyed talking with her.

We had a fantastic stay!
We wanted to go winter camping for once, and we were very happy with this beautiful spot. The temperature was around freezing so we were very happy with the warm luxury toilet block and kettle. We could sit under the canopy and make a fire in the evening. The roof was very nicely decorated with lights. We stood with the tent on the water and when we woke up in the morning everything was white, that was a very beautiful sight!

How was the contact with the host?
Maria and Willy are very friendly and helpful. Maria showed and explained everything well on arrival, and they were always up for a chat.

I wanted to go winter camping once, I had never done that before. The weekend I wanted to go it was nice weather, so I booked a spot here. It was around freezing point, so I was a bit cold, but the overall experience was really great! And that was largely due to where I was staying. Really a very nice and quiet area on the dike with lots of birds around. The hosts were very friendly and everything went well. I was very happy with the warm toilet block :) There was also a place where a fire could be made in the evening. And a covered area where you can sit comfortably.
All in all a great experience! I would definitely like to come back here again, but maybe in the summer :)

How was the contact with the host?
The contact with the hosts was very good, everything was clearly explained when I arrived and they were very friendly during my stay.

Tips for new guests?
If you go winter camping: take enough warm stuff with you, but that probably speaks for itself :)

Maria and her husband could tell you all about their yard and the environment. We were allowed to use the outside (and inside) kitchen and could light a fire in the outdoor stove. There is also a luxurious (wonderfully warm) bathroom! I would recommend everyone to go on a holiday or mini adventure with Maria!

How was the contact with the host?
Super! The contact before and during the stay was good. Maria and her husband have helped us with beautiful walking and cycling routes.

Tips for new guests?
Explore the area! You can enjoy cycling and walking in the area. There are also many beautiful villages and towns in the area.

I had a fantastic stay with Maria and Willy!
I was standing by the water with my tent. What a beautiful and quiet place with a panoramic view. I enjoyed all the waterfowl and birds in the fruit trees.
A stork even landed nearby.
Everything is well and neatly maintained. Very very clean sanitary facilities. Outside are all kinds of nice seats.
It was nice that I could pick herbs from the herb garden. I also liked that there was a crate with some fruit and/vegetables from their garden, from which you could take some. Cozy and cleanly furnished communal areas with an eye for detail.

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly welcome by Maria. She really takes the time for you. Maria and Willy are both very helpful. What lovely people! Thanks again for the nice contact and stay!!!

Tips for new guests?
Rent a canoe/kayak from Enspijk. From there you can sail very nicely on the Linge. I had reserved a combination tour so that a bicycle was ready at the end point to be able to cycle back to the starting point.

The campsite at Maria was very pleasant, with a very nice place to set up the tents, very clean sanitary facilities and - not unimportant given the wet weather - a nice covered place where we could spend the evening cozy and dry. You will stay with Maria between the orchards, vegetable garden, sheep, coots and moorhens. Ideal for relaxing. Highly recommended!

How was the contact with the host?
Very very good, both beforehand and on site. Maria is a very pleasant and friendly hostess, who wanted to make it as easy and pleasant as possible for us and was happy to suggest walking routes.

Maria and Willie welcomed us very warmly, gave us a tour of their grounds and then we drank homemade apple juice together.
The camper place is a beautiful spot on a water with a view over the Zuid-Hollands Landschap. In the morning the cows lie in front of the fence and you can hear the birds chirping.
The bathroom is really nice and practical [lots of brackets], the bathroom is also kept very clean. The covered outdoor area is nice for when it's rainy.
A downside is that there is no hot water at the outdoor washing up areas, but the kitchen is right next to it and you can tap hot water there.
Leerdam is a 15-minute walk away. There are beautiful walking and cycling routes nearby. Maria has booklet with different routes.

How was the contact with the host?
Fine. Maria responds quickly to e-mails and during your stay she can always be reached by phone or nearby.

We had a very nice, quiet and warm stay at the campsite with Maria. The idyllic spot on the water is even more beautiful in real life! It is very quiet, you only hear the sheep now and then. We were positively surprised by the sanitary facilities; it was very nice and clean and the shower is just like home (maybe even better..!). We were also very charmed by the seating area, it seemed as if we were in France, between the fresh herbs (which you could pick) and possibly the possibility to light your own fire.

How was the contact with the host?
Maria is a warm-hearted woman who talks passionately about her stay and who also knows a lot about the area. The contact with her was always non-binding and friendly.

Tips for new guests?
A bicycle is useful to explore the area, but the hiking trails are also easily accessible!

We had a fantastic time at the Bij Maria campsite. There were courgettes from the vegetable garden that we were allowed to eat, the toilets and shower were super clean, and the sheep watched us while we drank coffee in front of the tent. The tent sites were spacious and there were several seating areas scattered around the site.

How was the contact with the host?
Maria responded quickly and she and her husband welcomed us warmly. Nice people matching a nice campsite.

Tips for new guests?
The sheep were sociable but also early on bleating to each other, so if you want to sleep in then earplugs are not a luxury ;) Furthermore, the beach of Bassa was a good place for a swim, so definitely do it.

What a beautiful spot in Leerdam! Fantastic cycling and walking opportunities. Very hospitable by Maria with her own pressed apple juice! Beautiful newly renovated outbuilding with fresh shower and toilets. A very nice kitchen (which you can use) and a nice terrace. Pick your own tea from the herb garden!
The only small minus was that there was no wifi. But everything else is great!

How was the contact with the host?
Maria is very welcoming and friendly! Contact very nice!

Tips for new guests?
Take a nice bike ride from Leerdam to Geldermalsen along the Linge. You will pass through beautiful small villages! Really enjoy the many traditional Dutch views in this beautiful river landscape!

Intimate place, quite and beautiful environment. Facilities were new and clean and well-maintained by Maria. Warm welcome, tent was perfect, spacious and neat, with all facilities needed for a smooth and easy stay. I'd come back for sure, and would even consider renting the meeting room upstairs with my team which was an incredibly beautiful space.

How was the contact with the host?
Easy and prompt communication with a lovely host. Maria thought along for breakfast (which we ordered late) and was flexible and very friendly. The home-made apple juice and warm welcome came for free. I recommend!

What a beautiful location this was! Breathtakingly beautiful, with a beautiful view from the tent (including a nest of harriers) and endless hiking options on the other side of the dike. Maria is very welcoming and helpful. Everything we needed was there and if we needed anything she was always there for us. It was quiet, but there were also plenty of activities to do. I highly recommend this place and hope to spend another weekend here this summer!

Maria is a very sweet hospitable woman who received us warmly. We camped with a view of a nature reserve. You heard a lot of birds. For convenience, we ordered breakfast and it was organic and delicious! Because you eat together, you immediately meet nice people who also like to go out. Maria has enough tips!

I would really like to share our experience we had at the nature campsite in Leerdam, near Maria.

What a special beautiful experience we have had at 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 beautiful bloom.

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

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

The view is beautiful and wide. The places to camp 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 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 rental of the rooms with the options for complete care.

We will definitely come back to this place when the apples and pears hang on 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 lovely place Maria and her husband Willy have created! Nice camping spots under the fruit trees, at the bottom of the Diefdijk, with sheep as neighbors behind and a view of the nature of the South Holland Landscape. A beautiful place for a small tent.
The bathroom, as you may call it, is attractively furnished with many characteristic elements and, above all, good and clean sanitary facilities and wonderfully heated. A beautiful outdoor area, 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 heartfelt welcome.
The camping spots, the Pipohuisje and the camper place (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 nice place for a family or friends reunion with people who love the outdoors and camping. We will do that too!
Highly recommended for nature and outdoor enthusiasts!

A beautiful place with a wonderful view. Cozy occasionally some cows on the other side of the ditch and scratching coots and ducks, completely in nature and yet close to Leerdam for shopping. Good and clean sanitary facilities.

Excellent, always easily accessible.

Tips for new guests?
That Rhenoyse clog path indeed, and Bassa's wheel definitely go and have a look (bring swimming gear).
