About this campspace #s005416

Your host

Ylvie

At our nature stable we do not only house horses in our beautiful horse paradise. We also offer a limited number of nature camping spots. In the middle of the meadow, in the silence between the horses, or in our yard close to the sanitary house. With us you decide where you prefer to be.

Horse with you?
We have 4 off-grid tent pitches available, each with a private meadow right next to it where you can house your horse (or 2 horses together). This way you sleep right next to your horse and you experience a very unique holiday with and next to your horse.

In our food forest under construction you can camp off grid with a camper van or tent. Our own horses walk around in their horse paradise.

In the yard we can offer a reel with electricity for 1 or 2 campers.

Separately in our yard is a brand new sanitary building with 2 sanitary units. In the low season it is possible to rent a sanitary unit as private sanitary.

Located in the outskirts of Lunteren on a dead end road, you can still enjoy real silence on our property. No roads or trains. Most of the noise comes from a family of little owls, the neighbor's cows and our horses. On summer evenings you will be surrounded by crickets in our meadows. Sounds to dream away..
Our fire pit and picnic tables are at your disposal and our 2.5ha site provides enough space to find a place to enjoy the silence in privacy and to pick wild blackberries and apples in the summer season.

Wekeromse Zand is 2 kilometers from our site. The Lunterse neighborhood forest is also easily accessible on foot and by bicycle. At 10 minutes by car you will find the entrance to the Hoge Veluwe and the Kröller-Müller museum.

The village centers of Lunteren, Barneveld and Wekerom are all about 4 km away from us.

For campers we have space all year round on the paved surface in our yard. In dry conditions, campers can also choose an off-grid spot on our camping meadow.

Very nice place in the meadow.
We (my daughter) were very sorry that it was not possible to drive or take care of it.
Referred to the milranche in oath for this.
We missed the drain for chemical toilet.
Furthermore, showers and toilet neat.

How was the contact with the host?
Well, not much spoken, but that was possible.

Host Ylvie has responded

Hi Anja, thank you for your review.
Indeed, I have indicated in advance that it is not possible to drive with us. Glad you liked the Mills Ranch recommendation!
We are not a riding school, most of our horses are rescues, and horse welfare is our number 1 priority. That's why we don't let strangers with/on/to the horses. It is precisely because of our 'wild' herd that our place is so unique in terms of camping; I hope you enjoyed observing our herd in their most natural habitat!

Hmmm , my daughter had booked and not realized we had no power at the site . That took a while to switch. But also solved that way. We were allowed to use the fridge in the cafeteria. Other than that it was great .

How was the contact with the host?
Ylvie was great

Tips for new guests?
I was really dependent on batteries for the lighting and I'm going to change that with a solar panel and a battery

Armand

Tell us about your experience
Last Easter weekend we stayed with our rented camper at the beautiful location of Ylvie. It is a very quiet and beautiful place and we were able to pick a spot on the meadow with our camper. We looked out on the horses and sheep that roamed there and beautiful nature. An extra bonus was the wonderful weather we had, so we could enjoy nature and tranquility even more.

Our dog also had a great time. He was allowed to walk around freely and played with Ylvie's sweet dog (labrador) all the time. What a sweetheart her dog is.

We could use the just new sanitary room, which is equipped with 2 showers and 2 toilets and a separate sink to do your dishes. The sanitary area looked neat and clean, the showers were wonderfully warm. The only thing is if you both want to shower at the same time that the water jet is less powerful, but the temperature of the water remains wonderfully warm.

Ylvie is very friendly and welcoming and also flexible when you have questions.

We enjoyed it immensely and will definitely come back!

A must for everyone, especially if you like peace and beautiful nature with the animals around you. We like small-scale ourselves very much, not that you are all together on a massive campsite, this was perfect.

Thank you Ylvie for letting us be here!

How was the contact with the host?
The contact was very good. Ylvie is very hospitable and friendly, responds quickly to the apps you send her. Many things can be discussed and you will be released where you are staying.

Tips for new guests?

Reinder

Tell us about your experience
The two of us camped at Ylvie for a weekend at the end of March. Truly a (horse) paradise. After a nice reception, a nice spot was selected in the meadow, with a view of the stray horses and the sound of birds, sheep and the neighbor's cows. To the sanitary facilities you walk through the off-leash area of the horses, who come by for a hug :-). Beautiful area for walking, cycling etc. In one word 'perfect'!

How was the contact with the host?
Ylvie responds quickly and clearly. During her stay she finds a good balance between giving attention and 'giving space' - experienced as very nice!

Tell us about your experience
Beautiful surroundings and exactly as described between the horses. Very nice, even if you don't come especially for that. We can enjoy mountain biking in the area. In addition, Ylvie is a great host. The camping spots literally still have to grow, but it looks very promising :)

How was the contact with the host?
Great, Ylvie is easy to get in touch with online, but also on the site itself.

Tips for new guests?
We camped in March 2022, the 'shelter' has yet to grow, so with wind you are still in an open field. Bring a windbreak if you plan on camping soon.

The only drawback is that you cannot walk straight into the forest. But don't do that to Ylvie.

January 2022. Easily accessible via Campspace. Fast (within 4 hours) and clear contact. Place is easily accessible. Clear instructions where exactly to go. Private sanitary was very nice. Nice shower. On the property it is nice with horses and the friendly dog. Ylvie is a good hostess. In our case it was very relaxed that we could stay longer, because nobody came after us for the spot.

We were allowed to spend the night at Ylvie on Christmas Day with our bus camper. My husband and I had a really nice time. We were allowed to use the fire pit. We cooked our Christmas dinner here. The playful dog was very sociable and the horses have a great time there too. There is enough space. Which makes you feel very free. We will definitely come back.

How was the contact with the host?
The contact with Ylvie was pleasant. We felt very welcome. She is welcoming and also shows that she likes what she does.

Tell us about your experience
Ylvie welcomed us warmly and took all the time to show us around her domain. What a beautiful place this horse paradise is. And Ylvie has many plans to make it even bigger and more attractive to more campers. (Sheltered willow spots, camping in a food forest). Although we didn't have a horse in our company, we were allowed to pick a spot wherever we wanted. We chose a spot next to her oldest horse who paid no further attention to these strangers who were standing next to her. Our own sanitary block and a nice campfire made our stay complete. Lovely walk around Wekeromse Zand. (Let Ylvie inform you about the short cut in between to get there on foot.) We will definitely come back! Johan and Wilma

Super spot! also for winter camping. Very luxurious toilet and shower building. Cozy between the horses, occasionally company of the chestnut fetching dog and being sung to sleep by an owl. what more could an outdoor person in transit want?! Nice base for walking, running or cycling in the area.

We spent the night with the electric camper in Ylvie's yard and that was very nice. We were allowed to stand on a paved spot, which was very nice after the rain. We had the clean sanitary facilities all to ourselves and Ylvie was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely come back for a longer stay between the horses :)

How was the contact with the host?

Tell us about your experience
On arrival we were welcomed by an employee of the stable because the host himself was unable to attend. She gave us a tour and helped set up my pony. We could choose where we wanted to put the tent, next to my pony's meadow or at one of the many other nice spots. You can camp here with a lot of privacy or closer to the yard, where the sanitary unit is located. Of course we chose a spot next to the pony. But you can also stand beautifully here without a horse, for example in one of the meadows that are surrounded by bushes.
The area is really great, Lunteren a stone's throw away, with restaurants and shops. The Wekeromse sand, special places such as the Celtic fields and Iron Age farm and the Goudsberg with the center of the Netherlands.
This Campspace is a wonderful place to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Veluwe, with or without your own horse.

Sarah

Tell us about your experience
We had the honor of being the first camper van to park on a field. What a magical experience. There are three fields - which were previously used for lodging horses - that Ylvie will set up for campers. In any case, a field is planted with fruit trees so that the guests also get some privacy. Many guests at the same time will never be there, because that is not the experience Ylvie wants to give. We thought it was very special to stand on a field with natural vegetation where the horses occasionally remained curious. They soon lost interest, but they liked the campfire in the fire pit again. To go to the shower/toilet you follow the sandy path where the horses are happy to let you pass. It was remarkable that we - who have never actually been in contact with horses - found the animals very sociable very quickly. It is clear that the animals are having a good time here. It made our experience very special. Because where can you camp alone on a large field with a fire pit where you occasionally pet a horse?

How was the contact with the host?
Ylvie is a very enthusiastic hostess who has fascinating stories. For example, she has worked with horses abroad as a biologist. She has arranged the terrain in such a way that the horses can walk around 15 km on a good day. They then walk on a sandy path along the three fields where they graze along the path. It's nice to hear her talk about nature and handling the horses. In the future it may also become a care farm, so that it will have an extra dimension. For the employees and the campers.

Tips for new guests?
We have done a lot with the bicycle. You are close to the center of Apeldoorn. We walked for hours on the heath, through the sand drifts, along the fens and through the woods of the Werkeromse Zand. There you will also pass a reconstructed farm, as it might have looked a long time ago. We found the Wall of Mussert in a residential area near Lunteren. Given its history, it is important that it is preserved. In the vicinity of Lunteren we also saw the neighborhood forest, which was built a long time ago by a notary. In memory of him there is now a beautiful tower from which you have a view of the tree-filled nature.
The bike ride to the national park and the Kroller Muller Museum was also very nice. We have seen so many works of art by famous artists there. The sculpture garden was also impressive. During our visit there was an exhibition by Marinus Boezem. The museum has worked out all his finds. The film gave added value to understand it even better.
Afterwards we saw wild boars and deer in the park. You should actually have more time to view the park (which you pay separately for).
