Sleep with the sheep: Pietje, Wally, Chrisje & Rolf
About this campspace #s004270
The camping spot is on a meadow of half a hectare with four sheep: Pietje, Wally, Chrisje and Rolf. On the pasture there is a cabin with a double bed with a lovely mattress + mosquito net (bring your own sleeping bag / blanket). Part of the hut is stable. So you can literally count the sheep in the evening. There is also a toilet, which you have to flush manually; nice and basic. Every day I provide 40 liters of fresh water for the guests. There is no electricity, but some lighting on batteries. There is also a frog pool and a piece of forest. People call it a paradise. It is on the outskirts of Haaren; 2 km from the beautiful town of Oisterwijk and 3 km from the Loonse and Drunense dunes.

Meet Frank, your host
My name is Frank, 58 years old and married to Francien and father of 4 children, 1 of which still living at home.
What a wonderful, natural, relaxing, inspiring place! Zaalig.
The welcome with the sheep: fantastic. As well as all the other times when they came to demand attention.
We slept well and we literally only had to count 4 sheep to fall asleep.
You have turned it into a real paradise that also makes you realize where happiness really lies.
Thanks for the great hospitality and reception. We will certainly advertise across the border in Belgium. Because I'm sure that many can enjoy here at least as much as we do.

"We had a very nice weekend on Frank's campspace. It was basic as described, but had everything necessary: Frank brought fresh water in the beginning (for cat-showers, washing dishes, etc.) and there was a rainwater-barrel for the toilet, which both is on the backside of the hut, reachable from the outside); there were some glasses, plates, some cutlery, candles, solar/battery lanterns in the hut and mobile ones, a BBQ which could be used as fireplace as well and also a table and seats outside. So a sleeping bag is basically all you need. The hut has a bed, and a bit of space for the backpack and stuff, but all a bit narrow since the entrance part is there for the sheep.
Frank is very welcoming, introduced us to the space and the sheep, helped to find the way to Oisterwijk or the Loonse and Drunense dunes, also brought us some tea and coffee after the first night, and in general was reachable all the time via phone/whatsapp.
The sheeps were awesome, herding around the meadow all day doing there thing, sometimes came to get petted, and always in the morning and evening to get there food, And when it rains they also came into the hut during the night. I can recommend it, especially when you want to get out for a weekend"
Spent a special 'back to nature' weekend with 4 lovely sheep. We were warmly welcomed with a drink and were given a tour and explanation about the hut and sheep. There is no shower or tap, but we got plenty of fresh water to drink and cool down, because it was a very hot weekend (35 degrees). In addition to sleeping in the hut, it is also possible to set up a tent, there was another couple who camped at the frog pond. Owner is very friendly and has created a small natural paradise, you really spend the night in a green cocoon. Nice rural area too, Oisterwijk is nice to have something to eat. We hope that future visitors respect the rules and the place and are kind to the sheep, because this place is clearly made with love!

In the morning and in the evening give the sheep some food.
No dogs allowed, does not work with the sheep. No music after 10pm. You can use the BBQ as a fire pit, there is wood to use.
And above all quietly enjoy nature and the sheep.
