About this micro camping

*For Dutch description, read below.

To be completely alone.
In the middle of nature.
Outside of the time and outside world.
Curious about what arises.

In the orchard behind the Mommenhoeve farm far from the buildings (> 100m) we have 1 camping spot. You can choose your own place. The orchard is located in the IJsselvalei near Deventer and is surrounded by a very small piece of forest and further meadows. You can be completely alone in the middle of nature, or with the two of you.

In the barn of the farm we have built a shower and toilet. We used tiles from all kinds of people around us that were left and made a colorful design. There is also a fridge that you can use and a campfire place to make a fire under the stars in the evenings. Regularly the wood oven turns on and you can sit down for a homemade pizza.

Even helemaal alleen zijn.
Midden in de natuur.
Buiten de tijd en buitenwereld om.
Nieuwsgierig naar wat er ontstaat.

In de boomgaard achter boerderij de Mommenhoeve ver van de bebouwing (>100m) hebben we 1 kampeerplek. Je kunt zelf je plekje kiezen. De boomgaard ligt in de IJsselvalei nabij Deventer en wordt omringd door een heel klein stukje bos en verder weilanden. Je kunt er even helemaal alleen zijn, midden in de natuur, of met z'n tweeën.

In de schuur van de boerderij hebben we een douche en toilet gebouwd. We gebruikten hiervoor tegeltjes van allerlei mensen om ons heen die over waren en maakten er een kleurig ontwerp van. Er is ook een koelkast die je kunt gebruiken en kampvuurplek om 's avondes onder de sterren een vuur te maken. Regelmatig gaat de houtoven aan en kun je aanschuiven voor een zelfgemaakte pizza.

Meet Saskia, your host

Together with my husband and kids Sven (6 years old) and Jiri (4 years old) I have been lucky to live on the ‘Mommenhoeve’. It’s an old farm in the IJssel valley close to Deventer and a huge fruit and nut orchard. I love making campfires behind the orchard and under a starry sky; either by myself or with other campers. I work as a photographer, filmmaker, speaker and writer or these are actually multiple shapes where I put in my explorer mindset. I love discovering new paths, both in work as being a parent, education and connecting to nature. But also literally; walking on new trails, meeting new people and follow the curiosity of my children. Recently my book ‘Nieuwe paden’ came out about pioneering and following your own road and adventure. I keep discovering how nice it is to by completely by myself in nature and I love to share this experience in our orchard. If you are coming to stay for a solo camping trip, I will make sure there are no other around. Immerse yourself with nature and 'nothingness'.

Marijke recommends this place

Upon arrival I immediately felt relaxed. I was warmly welcomed by the hostess, Saskia. We took a walk through the walnut orchard, where I could choose a spot myself. I set up my tent in a sunny spot, with a view over the meadows with sheep. What a wonderful place to unwind. In addition to space for a tent, they also have a small cabin to spend the night in. In the shed is a heated room with toilet, shower and washing up facility. I was there in February, so I was very happy with this luxury! A fire pit is ready for you and you can get firewood from the host for a small fee. For questions or a chat, the hosts areavailable. Do you need rest and enjoy nature this site is a perfect spot. In 20 minutes you can reach ‘Nationaal Park Hooge Veluwe’ where you can go for a hike, a bikeride and spot wildlife.

Marius recommends this place

We've camped on this amazing place. In the middle of the fruit an nut trees. Great sanitary ware and super friendly host. Absolutely worth another time.


It is possible to make a campfire under the starry sky on the fire pit in the orchard. This depends on the weather (drought, strong wind) and always in consultation. We charge 5 euros per evening for the wood. Pets not allowed.
Het is mogelijk om onder de sterrenhemel een kampvuur te maken op de vuurplaats in de boomgaard. Dit is afhankelijk van het weer (droogte, harde wind) en altijd in overleg. We rekenen 5 euro per avond voor het hout. Huisdieren niet toegestaan.
