Enjoyed the peace and nature
blissfully alone on a very large site near a river

How was the contact with the host?
Jo and his wife are very willing people who help where necessary, give sufficient explanation

Tips for new guests?
Definitely ask to provide wood. The fire bowl on the river is the max.

De eerste avond was het wennen, daar ik verwachtte dat we in, dan wel nabij een bos stonden waarin je kon wandelen. Dat is echter niet het geval, er is een stromend beekje en er zijn bomen, maar technisch gezien sta je gewoon op een veld aan het einde van een zeer kleine woonwijk. Dat kan de eerste avond vreemd aanvoelen, daar het voelg alsof iedereen het veld op kan lopen. Vanaf de tweede nacht had ik daar geen enkel last meer van en liepen we in onze blote kont de beek in om ons te wassen. 



Het was heerlijk en we hadden het gehele  terrein voor ons alleen. Ik was met de hond en mijn vierjarig zoontje. We waren met de buscamper, maar sliepen in een tent. De eerste avond maakte we vuur, en vanaf de tweede was daar de pret vanaf, we voelde ons schuldig om het milieu. 



Een echte aanrader is het klankenbos in Pelt, erg leuk voor jong en oud, aan het eind is een enorme speeltuin. Pizzeria Di Licata (Achel) en Odiziana (Neerpelt) kan in aanbevelen, beide hebben een houtoven. Ook is er een goed Italiaans restaurant om de hoek. Je kan wandelen langs de rivier of in de buurt een kano huren. 



We hebben heerlijk genoten van de rust, zon en de natuur.

How was the contact with the host?
Geweldig! Erg lieve man.

Tell us about your experience
Nice place in the meadow, we had 3 pleasant days. The heat of the day did not really penetrate thanks to the forest edge and the cool stream (which fortunately still had enough water flowing through). We had the meadow to ourselves and that is secretly lovely. Really off for a few days. No Wi-Fi, no busy road past your camping spot, no light pollution from a city.

How was the contact with the host?
Jo is very friendly and easy to approach. There were quite a few stinging nettles and they were swept away an hour later with the tractor so that the children could more easily walk to the stream. We were also able to use his tips for spending our last day, super nice.

Tips for new guests?
Have fun, relax :). Don't forget your flashlight for a nightly toilet visit.
To the Lommel Sahara, swimming at the Goolderheide (great fun for children), collecting bark from the trees by the canal and making boats to let the stream drift.

Tell us about your experience
We were with a larger group over Pentecost, guests of Jo and his family. The meadow is beautifully situated, directly on a stream in the middle of many trees and pure nature.

We were there with campers, tents and caravans, which we could easily park on the meadow. Lots of nice trees, were perfect for some shade and hanging hammocks.

On the first day we had 27 degrees and a lot of sun, so the trees were a great source of shade.
On the 2nd day it rained heavily from 9am to 9pm, the water level in the stream rose and we spent the whole day under our pavilions.
Without the incredible hospitality of Jo and the surrounding farmers, we would have had it much cooler.

Jo visited us several times a day and checked on us to see if we were already under water.
A farmer even offered us his inn and in the evening Jo came back with wood so we could make a campfire.

All in all it was a great stay.
The composting toilet was great and emptied every morning. Jo and always brought wood for the fire bowls. 5 euros per wheelbarrow, full of high-quality great wood. We were also provided with a grill on which we could grill, which was just great.

This meadow is huge and a great place for a short vacation.
Jo and his family took very good care of us and we had an amazing time. Always my pleasure.

How was the contact with the host?
We always wrote to Jo via Whatsapp and he always answered very quickly.
The whole family was always available for us and helped us at all times.
It was nice to be your guest.

Tips for new guests?
If you are looking for a meadow for camping with great hosts, then I can only give you one tip:
Visit Jo and his family in Pelt, more hospitality is not possible.

We were kindly received by Jo, he gave us a tour through his meadows and possible camping spots. There was a beautiful fire pit that Jo had lit for us. In addition, he had provided us with more than enough firewood for the rest of our stay. A nice quiet area with plenty of space for us with an electric camper. In addition, there was a water barrel to wash your (hands).

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly and helpful, Jo did everything he could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

The spot is located on the edge of a large beautiful meadow. Just next to it runs a quiet river (Warmbeek). Just behind the river there is a forest. It is very quiet there, you hear all kinds of bird sounds. In the river I spotted a muskrat (?). Great place to experience nature! Jo is a friendly host; communication went very smoothly. I also found it very pleasant to have a chat with you. Thank you for having this place on Campspace 🙂. I would definitely like to come back!

Wonderful place to camp in nature. We stood by the gently flowing stream against the forest and were awakened in the morning by young woodpeckers, moorhens, buzzards in the air ... we even enjoyed the raindrops on our tent.
