West of the city of Groningen is one of the most beautiful quarters of the Ommeland: the Westerkwartier.
The region is bursting with variety in landscape and nature. Wierden, crooked ditches and winding roads give this area a unique character. In the middle of this beautiful area, in the Polder De Dijken - Bakkerom nature reserve, you can stay overnight in a unique place with us. There is a spacious tent with space for 4 air mattresses and a great shepherd's hut where you can prepare your warm bite on a two-burner gas stove and eat it with a beautiful view. Our Tamworth pigs are foraging on this plot and you can enjoy the many different species of birds and wild animals. You will encounter foxes, hares and deer with some regularity. It is a wonderful place for walking or cycling. You can go in all directions from the camping site. Tranquility is what this place can offer you; in the meadow perimeter there is no one to be seen and at night you can see the stars! If you have an eye for subtle changes in the landscape, you can read 'landscape' to your heart's content here. Grassland, fields, swamp, heath and woods, located at the transition from the sea clay in the north, via the peat, to the sand in the south.
Toilet facilities are available in the form of a compost toilet. There is no electricity or tap water. We do, however, provide you with a number of liters of clean drinking water that you can use for a number of days.
There is one simple bicycle available (without gears).
Breakfast €10 pp (fresh rolls, boiled egg and spreads such as cheese or ham, vegetarian on request)
Near:
- A bakery, supermarket and butcher 3km away;
- The Polder De Dijken – Bakkerom nature reserve is a prime location for bird watchers. Fromuti the tent you can immediately hear and see the first birds;
- Leekstermeer (boat and canoe rental);
- Lauwersmeer National Park (dark sky park), possibility for mudflat hiking in nearby Lauwersoog;
- Barefoot Path (Opened);
- Nienoord Castle (Carriage Museum and Family Park);
- City of Groningen 20 km away.
Nice to know; our pigs are fed twice a day. It is not allowed to feed or enter the pigs or other animals outside these times. So you will see us walking every now and then. We live 2 kilometers away and are available for questions.
We respect our environment and nature and expect the same from our guests. Do not leave any waste lying around (this also includes cigarette and food residues). Smoking is not allowed on the property due to the risk of fire.
