My wife and I both come from scouting backgrounds and camping is in our blood.
Usually we are on the road with an off-road vehicle equipped with a roof tent.
At home and abroad we look for places of peace and quiet with respect for nature!

Liesjes Bos was a special place to spend the night, especially because due to circumstances we only arrived at night. But it was easy to find and so close to the buildings of Herentals, on the gravel paths of a natural area, it has a very unique atmosphere. Paul and Rosy were extremely friendly when we met them at the birch lane the next day.
Cooking on my small wood gas burner went really well in the fire pit, and you can really get the feeling of being alone in nature. But shops are within walking distance through the natural park and bat forest. The environment is just as nice as the bush and we hope to come back again.

The walk from the gate to the small private square was truly magical. To our delight there was a small outhouse that was very clean. There was also toilet paper and hand cleaning gel. Thank you very much for that.
We really enjoyed our time in Liesjes Bos and will definitely come back again.

How was the contact with the host?
The written contact was super nice and the short meeting on site was also great. Paul and Rosi just stopped by to see if we were okay and if we found everything. Both were super friendly.

Tell us about your experience
From the moment you swing open the gate of Liesjes Bos and drive through the beautiful driveway, you imagine yourself in a completely different world.
Where you walked 2 minutes ago in the center of Herentals, you have now suddenly ended up in your own private park.
During your stay you can explore one of the many forest paths, relax in the nice homemade tree swing or relax in the evening at the fire pit. This Campspace has an ideal location near the center, but is also a good base to start one of the many walking routes. But first enjoy that delicious welcome drink that is ready on arrival!

How was the contact with the host?
Warm, we felt welcome!

Beautiful night spent in Liesjes Bos. Not so easy to find in the dark, but thanks to the good directions of the owner we got there quickly. We have not found the toilet, but that is probably due to our arrival in the dark. Made a nice fire and slept well! We enjoyed the silence and tranquility.

Tips for new guests?
The entrance is not that wide. Just to do with a normal campervan. Soggy in some places in winter. Be careful where you sit!

Dear Klaas
Thank you for the review, nice to hear that you enjoyed the night in Liesjesbos, you could find the toilet behind the concrete stall, you did not find the beer and sweets either, this is in the welcome box under the awning of the wooden stall , together with the walking brochures, you still owe this next time 😉
Arrows would be easy, can be a tip for us

Thank you for the review, nice to read, we didn't have the chance to come by, hope you enjoyed the night in 't Liesjesbos.
You left the bottle of wine and the napoleonnekes untouched, which you will have to pay next time.

Dear Tom and family
Nice to read that you enjoyed your stay in the Liesjesbos.
Mosquitoes are everywhere this summer
When we camp we solve the lack of electricity with a solar panel, maybe a tip

Nice camping spot.
You have everything you need there.
We were warned about the mosquitoes.
We had therefore taken our precautions, but this was a very aggressive species and were actually constantly attacked.
Too bad this ruined the stay a bit.

How was the contact with the host?
Good communication

Thank you for the review. Nice to read that the stay was good.
A shame about the mosquitoes, but they are numerous and teasing everywhere, that's what you get with those humid summers ;-)

Beautiful, quiet and well-kept place a short distance from the small Nete! Perfect for our canoe trip from Retie to Herentals. All requested information was communicated clearly, quickly and in a friendly manner. Due to the weather conditions we unfortunately only stayed 1 instead of 3 nights. We will definitely come back here for a longer stay!

How was the contact with the host?
Perfect. All our additional questions were answered kindly and quickly.

Nice place, super located! Completely alone in the green, and yet against the city!

How was the contact with the host?
Very correct, and when we arrived there was a local beer, sweets and a lot of tourist brochures in a folder ready, very pleasant arrival!

Tell us about your experience
We arrived and saw a beautiful birch avenue. We felt in the De Columbus program. A narrow lane and then an idyllic clearing in a forest. Beautiful! A swing, campfire pit and a nice welcome drink and snack completed the setting. And don't forget a real toilet! We enjoyed the hiking trails nearby, very close by the way! And the play forest, cafeteria at the Kleine Nete... really a place to remember. Downside: the mosquitoes. Even though the host had warned us, I went home full of red balls, but very satisfied ;-)

How was the contact with the host?
Fine. Clear message with information about how to get to the domain.

Tips for new guests?
Anti-mosquito material

"Very nice hidden camping spot and yet close to the center with shops, cafe, restaurants... It is unbelievable how quiet it really is in this place, it is wonderful to stay there!!
Close to hiking and cycling nodes to immediately explore the Nete and the surrounding forests.
Friendly owners who came to say hello and are easily accessible for questions / problems.
Highly recommended (but don't forget your tricks against the mosquitoes in the season 😉)!!

Stars: a big 4/5! That other point the mosquitoes ate "

Very pleasant, quiet place in the green. Friendly and helpful owners who live nearby. Even after a lot of rain, the domain was not soggy. Play forest and playground nearby. Recommended.
