Frank

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 hut with chairs and part of it is a stable. There is also a toilet, which you have to flush manually; nice and basic. I provide 40 liters of fresh water for the guests; if it is over, I will bring more. There is no electricity, but some battery lighting. There is also a frog pool and a piece of forest. People call it 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.
Nice idea: You can rent a mobile hot tub from the neighbor, which will be placed next to my meadow.

The contact with Frank was very good. Frank is a committed and service-oriented man. Welcome with a delicious drink! This campspace adventure was very special for us. Here you really come back to nature, to the essence. Especially with the lovely sheep who wanted our attention and wanted to be petted. The village of Oisterwijk is fun to visit. Nice terraces and eateries + delicious ice cream parlor.

Wild-camping-de-luxe!
What a wonderful place this is! Easy to reach and yet completely in nature ... The sheep love company and provide life and animation ... The frogs in the pool provide background music πŸ™‚.
Frank is a very warm and relaxed man who gave us a warm welcome. The beers and scrubber were cold when we arrived. The sheep hut is basic, but very practical and cozy and equipped with a real bed (with a good mattress and plenty of extra blankets). We enjoyed a campfire and roasted marshmallows πŸ˜‹. You can also take a nice walk in the area (the nature reserve at the Nemerlaer estate nearby is recommended).
We would love to come back!

Scout Sauvik About the scout program

Frank’s campspace is an exciting and unique experience right in the middle of civilization. Very close to the city of Haaren and all modern facilities like supermarkets, is a tiny paradise set far back from the road, with nothing but trees, fields, ponies and sheep around you. An ideal campspace for those who want to disconnect and search for a real β€œwild” experience: including 4 fluffy, curious sheep exploring your tent and you, an outdoor toilet with a great view (!), a firepit for roasting marshmallows and enjoying winter nights, and a beautiful tent pitch in the middle of a β€œtiny” forest with its own magic pond filled with excited frogs. The sense of privacy and connection with nature is very high. Frank is a wonderful, proactive and thoughtful host - constantly keeping in touch with us to make sure we have all the directions, tips and info we need. We were touched by his small touches like welcoming us with a full bottle of β€œkruidenbitter”, beers, hot soup and snacks, and even dropping by next morning with fresh, hot coffee! It was clear that he values his guests and is very glad to share his tiny meadow and his friendly sheep with them. Overall, a very unique experience! Totally recommended.

Enjoy playing outside, listening to the birds, cuddling with the sheep. It can be that nice and simple sometimes. Make a little fire for some warmth. Hang on the couch and watch the activities around the tits nest box. Beer, cooking, watching the sun go down ... And then crawling into that cozy nest, the smell of hay, the call of owls help me to sleep. The next day we are awakened by 4 curious (hungry) faces of Pietje, Wally, Chrisje and Rolf.

In the summer we liked it so much that we have now returned.
Wonderful night spent with the 4 fantastic and curious sheep. Girlfriend slept in the sheepfold and we in our tent.
Frank was again very hospitable and friendly, with a nice welcome drink
In the evening campfire and cooking, the sheep sometimes came to watch. What a blast!
During the day the sun began to shine, we lay wonderfully in the comfortable garden chairs, listening to the many birds flying around our ears. And enjoyed all the peace, time and space, and the sheep, fantastic!

We really enjoyed this place and of course the four sweet, soft sheep. Frank had thought of everything - from blankets to cold beers - so we didn't want for anything. Definitely recommend :)

Last weekend (19-21 Feb 2021) we were at Frank de Werdt, and I would like to leave a review:

What a lovely place and nice host! A lovely private place where the love for the sheep and the garden radiates. At the end of February it was a mess, but Frank was ready with wellies when we arrived. Because of the environment, the cozy sheep and the hospitality of Frank: a must!

There is a lot of love in this piece of land. Everything from the welcome to the cuddly addicted sheep exudes warmth. Even in the fall!

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.
Top!"

"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"

We were the first campspace visitors at franks place.it was great that we could come very last minute.. what a great warm and friendly welcome with even coffee in the morning and a drink at night! be aware, it is so awesome that it might become a hotspot for campspacers! We will tell everyone for sure πŸ˜‰ how lovely to wake up in the morning by the birds and the sheep hanging around our tent. We fell in love with the four sheep who can run like the wind when they hear the sound of their food. Thank you so much for this adventure frank! Love, Joris and Karin

Hello Frank and everyone!

We are now taking shelter here in the house with the sheep because it is raining.
I never knew that β€œhiding” can also be fun. And we have been able to feel that cosiness here every day. A drink at the pool, feeding the sheep, a BBQ at nightfall, Frank who came by to bring coffee / tea. They are all things that we really enjoyed. To put it in Belgian terms: "It was really good!"

It was fantastic to stay with the very nice, cuddly sheep with propeller wagging tails, the frogs, the beautiful dragonflies, the sparrow hawks, long-tailed tits, the green woodpecker, the lovely wild land, the welcome drink, super coffee from Frank in the morning, buckets full of ice (which were really necessary due to the heat wave) and the chairs from which we could observe everything relaxed. The spot of the tent is in the shade for a large part of the day. Throwing water over your body with a pan, a wonderful way to wash yourself  We found Frank a very nice and genuine host!

We found the campsite wonderful. The location was untouched and the experience with the sheep was one of a kind. It is the place to get out of your comfort zone and intake what surrounds you. We find a surprising balance between the location and the comfort.

Frank was a lovely host, very caring and attentive to demands. Would recommend this magical field to anyone looking for a great romantic gateway.

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!
