We ended up in a beautiful, quiet, green oasis. What a lovely place! We felt right at home.
We chose a spot by the pond. There we could sit on the benches and the girls went swinging in the tree. The terrain was not flat there, but we slept wonderfully with the tent door open. Too bad for us, we only stayed 1 night.

How was the contact with the host?
We were received very hospitably. Lode and Wini are super friendly and helpful. Lode even helped us blow up the tent.

It is important that people learn to light a fire in the right way with respect for nature and the environment. You now also know the Swiss method and learn it from the other scouts groups. Greetings.

What a beautiful place! Our ideal way of camping, wonderful in nature with lots of privacy and super nice owners. Owners who make you feel like you are visiting family.

How was the contact with the host?
Excellent

Tips for new guests?
If the owners are there, they can also provide dinner and breakfast. We had already made other plans, but otherwise I would certainly use them.
Keep in mind that it's really back to nature, no showers just cold water from the tap.

We enjoyed the peace and space. We stood with our tent on the water. Between all the greenery you imagine yourself in a paradise. We had an unobstructed view and only saw other guests by the toilet. What a luxury to be able to camp in this beautiful garden.
Too bad about the duckweed in the swimming pond. We swam just as well and under the duckweed the water is wonderfully clear and fresh. After swimming, rinse with the garden hose and you are clean again. There is a beautiful nature reserve nearby where you can enjoy walking and cycling. At the farm you can eat traditionally made ice cream.

How was the contact with the host?
Lode and Wini were very friendly. Lode responds quickly when you send him a message via campspace.

It's a nice big garden with a pond, with smaller tent you shouldn't have any problems with finding few spots to camp. We have bigger tent but we found lovely spot near the pond and fireplace. Highly recommend.

Communication via campspace was perfect, our host was not at home when we arrived and than we left very early in the morning but there was note left on the door for guests

Lode and Wini are very nice people. When I broke down after night 2 from the pain in my back because my mattress had deflated, Wini gave me a nice thick mattress to sleep.

Close to Bulskampveld, ideal for children.

Scout Krisztian About the scout program

Tell us about your experience
I have arrived at Lode and Wini's Campspace and I was immediately amazed by their beautiful garden and huge space that they were offering! I was able to set up my tent in a secluded area with privacy and park my vehicle in the driveway. Their land offers a great variety of activities as it houses two small lakes, campfire circle, and small fields for lounging and outdoor activates. I personally enjoyed some time on the swing next to the lake while listening to the birds singing. During the night it was peaceful and quiet. I have also made use of the facilities of the Campspace before departing.

How was the contact with the host?
Wini and Lode were always available during my stay and they were very personal and friendly.

Tips for new guests?
Bring a good book with you because this Campspace gives some of the most peaceful time to enjoy a good long read.

For a camper there is little space to stand and that is a pity. The space of the garden is very spacious, nice places to sit down. A fire pit loungers a small lake and the garden is very pretty. Located in the middle of the forest with many opportunities for walking or cycling. Too bad there is no shower and hot water.

How was the contact with the host?
Warmly friendly and very helpful.
Lode likes to talk about nature.

Tips for new guests?
Highly recommended if you like basic.

Host Lode en Wini has responded

Yes, we don't do it immediately to keep a campsite open, but we open another garden for people who want something different. In 2020 it was mainly tents, but there are more and more campers and sometimes they are so large that it is difficult to enter the parking lot. Small is beautifull. Regards, Lode

Absolutely wonderful. Beautiful space - looked like something out of a Beatrix Potter book. Lode’s work exemplifies how we should live: Using the best of our knowledge and technological understanding to live in balance with nature.

How was the contact with the host?
Fabulous. He got back to us promptly, and while we were there he gave us space where we wanted it, but also took the time to talk and made us feel perfectly at home. He was so kind to the children and brought us fresh eggs in the morning.

Tips for new guests?
My Young teenagers were somewhat bemused by the fact that there is no hot water or shower. We managed fine with a bucket and water heated on the stove. Not a problem, but we should have checked the info before we got there!

August 2021

Host Lode en Wini has responded

Hi, with the explosive growth of the American duckweed on the pond there is now a garden hose with spray nozzle for rinsing the small green leaves. Not with hot water because that would require a complete installation and we prefer to keep it a bit basic.
As an old BJN we didn't have a shower at camp and we usually slept in a shed, but we cried ourselves cruelly. We actually already have an abundance of luxury in the west compared to what is available in Africa and a large part of Asia. Regards, Lode

Rules

Dogs not allowed. Respect also for the wild plants. Public urination is prohibited. Due to the large pond, children are allowed to swim and play under adult supervision. There is currently a lot of American duckweed growing there, but the water is clear, so rinse the small leaves with a garden hose after a swim.
Campers can park on a paved parking half in the garden and small vans on the grass between the trees. All the way into the garden is not possible. Please advise when booking if it will be with a motorhome or a tent. There is only room for two campers, but many places for tents without seeing each other.

Cancellation Policy

Guests who cancel at least 3 days before check-in date will receive a refund of the amount paid by them (excl. Campspace fees). Otherwise they will not be refunded.
