At the back of our very large garden there is plenty of room to spend the night while enjoying the peace and nature. You sleep next to the horses in the middle of the greenery. This is the ideal place to completely withdraw and come to yourself or to enjoy each other in peace. The horses will keep you company.
The view of the animals gives you the chance to observe them closely and enjoy the movements within the herd. These animals are so authentic and pure. You learn to enjoy the little things in life. Having a nice chat by the campfire about the experiences of the day, about what the horses had to tell us, makes you realize how much these animals can still teach us.
If desired, you can assist in their care.
The horses are also used during coaching sessions where they give you more insight into who you are and why you are here. They show you what you need in your life right now to break through certain patterns and make the right choices. They can also reveal dynamics within a family or group.


You can also experience beautiful walks and bike rides in the beautiful Hageland. When you cross the street, you walk straight into the Demer Valley to get lost in the beautiful nature for hours.
We live on the mountain bike trail. So you start directly on the gravel into the Demerbroeken. My husband has everything you need to tinker with your bike: Bike Wash, compressor, and understanding of bike mechanics. Your bike is safe and dry here under the shed or in the garage.

Other fun activities nearby:
- Sail down the Demer (full or half day) from Aarschot or Scherpenheuvel
- Hiking in the Merode (Averbode Abbey)
- Visit Horst Castle (Castle of the Red Knight)
- Multi-day hiking trails to nearby bivouacs (Rillaar, Walenbos).
The pleasant city of Aarschot is also nearby. You can go there for cultural trips, swimming, tasty dinners, cinema, fun shopping, etc.

Rainwater is collected here as much as possible, we grow our own vegetables and mainly buy locally. We plan to live as self-sufficiently as possible in the future.

We are a family with two daughters, 1 dog, 2 cats, 6 chickens and 2 horses. We recently moved from Antwerp to Betekom because we were looking for more peace, space, soil, grounding, biodiversity, slowing down and of course also room for the horses. In this place we can cherish our love for mother earth.
We are working towards being able to live as self-sufficiently as possible in the long run.
We don't want to keep this place to ourselves but like to share it with others. So feel completely welcome!
