Primitive camping with a surprising twist
About this campspace #s000620
** Winter Facilities: campfire, hot water, hot shower, shelter, covered kitchen **
Our region might best be described as "textbook Holland" it is characterised by meadows with cows, farms, rivers, dykes, ditches, willows, storks and sleepy villages. UNESCO world heritage Kinderdijk (the famous windmills) is just around the corner as well as a number of picturesque small cities and villages.
Our place is next to the River Lek. We have a truly spacious garden, an orchard and a modest bit of woodland so enough room for some privacy if you want. Bicycles can be parked in the shed which can also be used for cooking on a wood stove or enjoying a drink.
The river is suited for swimming and the nearest 'beach' is a mere three minute walk. If you wish and you know how to master a Canadian canoe on a current you may use our canoe also.
You can order various beverages and food like cold beer, wine, freshly baked bread, espresso etc. as the nearest supermarket is quite a walk. We also offer buckets of iced water for cooling down your own drinks (free) if you wish.
We're currently establishing a sleeping accommodation in the woodshed which will provide room for at least two adults. You may also spread your sleeping bag on the straw next to this glamporious addition for the most rustic sleeping experience ever.

Meet Alexander, your host
I run a platform of webshops for food and drinks (needless to say: fine food and..) take care of my mother, living in a tiny house in the garden and lots of other things.
Apart from camping with a tent or mobile anything you can stay in the prehistoric caravan and in the shed. Where we also have other facilities.
Strive to be remembered for hospitality.
We had a wonderful holiday! The campsite is located in a nice area with a lot to do and the beach within walking distance is very nice. The plumbing is basic, but fine for a few nights.

Alexander, the owner, briefly showed where we could shower and where we could get a cold drink, but it was mostly freedom and joy. The whole weekend he turned out to be very hospitable. Also about checking in and out (we arrived earlier and stayed longer) he was not difficult at all. You were allowed to pick a spot in the orchard yourself. We chose sheep, cows and horses as neighbors and at night we were kept out of sleep by the frogs. Glad we were allowed to make a campfire. There was more than enough wood. Of course the bottle of bubbles made the evening complete at the campfire. The next day we decided to cycle spontaneously along the Lek. Alexander had two extra bicycles and he has the bicycle tires pumped up for us. The area sometimes looks a bit French. At least there is a lot of nature. When we came back from cycling, a cold drink was waiting for us again. We will definitely camp here again
From the moment we approached the dyke we immediately felt relaxed; what a beautiful surrounding! While enjoying our welcome drink our host told us very enthusiastically about his Campspace and his own camping experiences. Afterwards, we took a tour through the wide and green garden. This Campspace has a few options; set up your own tent, spend the night in a already set-up tipi, caravan or wooden mancave. We decided to set up our own tent, which was hard to choose because there are so many beautiful spots. We picked a spot all the way in the back surrounded by trees and next to a little creek. From this spot you have a beautiful view overlooking the fields. The rest of the day we started a fire and cooking some delicious food. There are plenty of options to cook, from open fire to brick oven. Also, the host loves to cook so we let them surprise us. Until late in the evening we enjoyed the coziness. The next morning we went for a run; so many beautiful paths towards cute little villages. The well deserved shower overlooks the garden, how nice?! Afterwards, we enjoyed breakfast in the sun and in the afternoon we even went canoeing on the nearby river de Lek. In short; we really enjoyed our time here and had some good laughs. We will definitely come back!
