This was our second visit for the year. What a lovely little place indeed. Simplistic, relaxing and the most beautiful views. Definitely a place we'll return to in the future.

How was the contact with the host?
Excellent, they were able to help us out with firewood as a last minute request. They always make time for a talk and make you feel right at home.

We have been here with the car camper.
Nice that there is a shelter where you can sit dry and out of the wind when the weather is less. There were also dahlias, eggs and some tomatoes and fruits (I think from own garden) put on the table :)
You are here quietly and out of sight, so you can be on your own here.

We were able to make the chickens happy with some leftover fruit and tomato.

How was the contact with the host?
Friendly lady, easy to reach if there is something but we did not need that.

Sara, thank you for a nice stay :)

Sara’s Campspace is a hidden gem, a perfect spot for private camping. The small shelter with dining area, flush toilet and sink has everything you need (plus some fruits, eggs and veggies from the property). We were pleasantly surprised to find a bucket shower behind the shelter if you’re not afraid of cold water. Sara was very accommodating and responsive.

How was the contact with the host?
Excellent.

Tell us about your experience
The stay on Sara's meadow, with a fire pit, a spacious shelter and seat, socket, sink and mirror, was quite luxurious for us cyclists. Drinking water was nearby and the hostess and hostess were extremely friendly and helpful. The site is surrounded by fields and at a distance from the buildings, which gave it a wonderfully secluded feeling and beautiful views of the evening sky.
We would happily return here.

There are gates to close the place so that the dog cannot leave.

Unfortunately we only stayed for one night but we will definitely be back.

Mike

Tell us about your experience
Nice, quiet Campspace with beautiful views over the fields and great hiking trails nearby.

The 'shed' on the Campspace is not only practical, but also makes it extra cozy. Even the (very clean) toilet was decorated with a bouquet.

You can play tubs, there is a darts board, etc. The owners were even so thoughtful to provide homemade jam, elderflower syrup, mint, eggs, etc.

In the evening we sat by the campfire with our two dogs. What else do you want?

How was the contact with the host?
Sara and Flip are warm and attentive hosts, who do everything they can to give you a great camping experience. They clearly do this with heart and soul. Thank you!

Tips for new guests?
The artisanal ice creams from 't Creemke are highly recommended. The kayak departure point is also close by.

Also a bite to eat or just sit on a terrace at Bistro Tilo and De Retiese Watermolen were worth it!

For the walkers; Be sure to consider the walking route that passes along 'the watering' for the ultimate tranquility and beautiful views.

A very nice place in the meadows. Received very nice on arrival with a unique gift.

In the area you can walk nicely, there is a lot of pasture interspersed with large pieces of forest.

The place itself has no amenities except electricity. But that also gives it its charm. We bought some wood from Sara and were able to make a nice fire in the brazier for 2 days.

A welcome package ... some tips from the neighborhood ... all very nice!

First did the reflector walk that they have mapped out. Very well found and fun to do.

A wonderful Campspace! It is a private spot next to a meadow where you can relax. The place looks nicely cared for. And what a warm welcome: when we arrived there was a tray ready with vegetables from the own vegetable garden and eggs from the chickens. In addition, a drum with all kinds of booklets with information, walking and cycling routes and restaurants in the area! Definitely a tip to go hiking / kayaking / cycling in the area.
