We are Ellen & Nico and we would like to welcome you to The BEE Garden 🐝, our ecological garden of 3,000 m² to spend the night and enjoy all the beauty that nature has to offer. 🌸🌱

We only accept 1 booking at a time, making you the only guests staying overnight in the garden. We do rent out a guest room, so it is possible that those guests also enjoy the garden for a while.

🍏 πŸ¦‹ When purchasing the house, we started from the existing old orchard with apple, pear trees and cherry trees and we have built it over the years with new fruit trees and shrubs, large vegetable garden, pond, wild flower meadow and flower borders especially for different pollinators. We also have a pony, goat, a few chickens, 2 cats and 2 lovely dogs.

β›Ί πŸš™ You can come and camp with us in the garden with your own tent, camper or caravan or you can choose to stay overnight in our furnished glamping tent. It's a Sibley 450 Pro Tech. These tents are made of high-quality, durable cotton. The cotton ensures that the tent can 'breathe' and that it is wind and waterproof. The Sibley 450 pro has a diameter of 4.5m and a surface area of 16mΒ². This gives you more than enough space in the tent.

πŸ”₯ 🎯 To make it a fun and cozy time, we also have a fire bowl, petanque court, old wooden kicker table, darts board, Kubb and a suitcase full of games for young and old. In bad weather, it is also possible to camp, have a barbecue and spend some time under the half-open old hay barn.

πŸ₯ΎπŸš΄β€β™‚️ In the area there are several nature reserves with mapped out walks. We are also close to the Flemish Ardennes with well-known bicycle climbs such as the Muur, Bosberg, Molenberg and Berendries. Also plenty of nice mapped out mountain bike trails. These routes are all part of the South-East Flanders mountain bike network, with a total of 490 continuous kilometers of mountain biking through the South-East Flemish nature!
We are happy to provide you with more detailed information and plans.

🚿🧻 For our campers we have a separately accessible, new bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. There is also drinking water, electricity and a fridge available. Everything is accessible even when we are not at home.

A number of extras can be booked at the end of the booking, but these can certainly also be agreed on the spot.

Do you have a special wish, do you want to surprise someone with something extra? Please let us know and we will arrange this!

Hopefully we can welcome you in our garden! 🌳🌳

We are Ellen & Nico and have been living in Wanzele for about 10 years now. Over the years we have adapted the garden to an ecological garden, which is constantly changing. Myself, Ellen, I have been a beekeeper for a few years, am a herbalist and herb processor. Nico is an avid cyclist, both on the road and in the field. We are happy to welcome you with the necessary explanation about all our different passions.

Beautiful glamping site with well-equipped and down to the last detail elaborated accommodation. Our boys had a blast in the barn with the kicker table, darts, cricket, petanque and kubb. The fire bowl kept us nice and warm for a board game and the breakfast was delicious and very extensive. Everything artisan. Also doable in the colder season with the nice warm blankets in the tent. Top Host πŸ₯‡

How was the contact with the host?
Very smooth contact.

The host was very flexible with our request to put an extra child in the tent.

Tips for new guests?
Ellen is an experienced herbalist and beekeeper. Be sure to check out her vegetable garden.
The small animal farm makes it cozy.

What a lovely place!! A night with the kids in the glamping tent. Everything was provided, the beds provided with an extra blanket if it was a bit too cold. The kids could play darts, petanque, kicker table and a box full of comics, games and a batminton set. We had turned on the fire bowl in the garden so that we could still enjoy the beautiful evening. In the morning we were spoiled with a well-kept, very extensive breakfast with their own honey, jams and so much more. Thank you Ellen and Nico for your hospitality and the nice stay! We'll be back for sure!

How was the contact with the host?
Perfect! There is a folder with all kinds of walks, bike rides, restaurants in the area etc ...

Tips for new guests?

We were lucky enough to spontaneously get a place in the garden with Ellen and Nico. It was perfect. The garden is really a little paradise. Barbecue and campfire in the evening, wake up to the chirping of birds around the Bulli in the morning...

How was the contact with the host?
The contact was warm and uncomplicated and on top of that there was Ellen's delicious honey for breakfast ...

Tips for new guests?
Unfortunately, we had only booked one night. In retrospect, at least 2 nights would have been great...

Tell us about your experience
Ellen & Nico have a beautiful location available! We made use of the glamping tent and their guest room. The glamping tent was very clean and cozy. The guest room was also super neat and tastefully decorated with an accompanying kitchenette in a separate room especially for the guests. The weather was a bit disappointing, so we were able to enjoy the beautiful garden less, but luckily they have a beautiful, furnished semi-open barn available with seating and enough games to keep you busy for a whole day. We also included a breakfast where almost everything is homemade from our own garden, including homemade honey, super tasty! :D

In short, we couldn't have wished for a better campspace and will definitely be back!

How was the contact with the host?
We were very well received by Ellen & Nico. They are both super friendly and helpful if there were any questions. The booking had to be changed last minute and this was no problem at all for them. The communication beforehand was also very smooth.

Tips for new guests?
Don't arrive too late to just pitch your tent or camper, but enjoy everything Nico & Ellen have to offer ;-)

Very friendly welcome, hospitable, everything is there for a comfortable stay. Enjoyed this green place where you have the entire garden to yourself... This was relaxing in the many rest areas that the garden has. Also pleasant to talk to the hostess who wants to organize herbalist workshops in the future. We are already fans and we will pass it on.

Jantien

Tell us about your experience
We were really happy with our stay in the bell-tent in Ellen and Nico's garden. We visited with our dog who had a great time roaming freely on their property and playing with their dogs. Despite freezing temperatures one night, we stayed very warm thanks to their excellent cold weather blankets. The first night we really enjoyed building a campfire in their firepit looking out over the open fields and setting sun. The second night we roasted marshmallows over the fire in the covered open barn area. Added space heaters made it feel extra cosy. In the mornings, the breakfast add-on was the perfect way to enjoy a slow start to the morning. We had pleasant conversations with our hosts as they went about their business gardening and tending to their animals. We wanted to explore the surrounding nature with a long walk and received useful advice and extra information about routes to take. We chose the Vierbossen wandeling and found it really picturesque. All in all our hosts were very laid-back, easy to talk to and incredibly hospitable – couldn't have asked for a better experience!

How was the contact with the host?
Very clear, friendly and helpful. Very on hand to help and quick responses.

Tips for new guests?
Buy Nico's jams and Ellen's honey to take home for friends and family. We bought the pear and vanilla jam and the blackberry jam and they are delicious.

We were ready for relaxation, slowing down, time to be… And we all found that at 'The place to bee' 🐝. Ellen and Nico welcomed us very warmly and made us feel welcome all weekend.
Everything was taken care of down to the last detail: the beautifully and comfortably furnished tent, the cozy lounge area under the shed, the neat sanitary facilities, and last but not least… the delicious breakfast!
Wind and rain couldn't spoil our stay, but next time we'll bring better weather πŸ˜‰.
Thank you, our batteries are charged again!

How was the contact with the host?
We received a very warm welcome from Ellen and Nico and a thorough explanation of the possibilities at 'the place to bee'. During the whole weekend we had a nice contact with them both without this feeling like 'disturbing'. No question was too much. Very friendly, open people!

We had a wonderful week in Ellen and Nico's garden. The peace and space of the garden, the extensive -covered- facilities, the delicious breakfast and the sanitary facilities made our week complete. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely come back!

How was the contact with the host?
Very pleasant. Immediately after our booking, I received extensive information from Ellen via email. The contact via SMS also went very smoothly and on arrival I was sent a number of digital cycling routes for the mountain bike almost immediately. Everything was negotiable (even an unexpected laundry with dirty baby clothes :D).

Tips for new guests?
Take a seat under the canopy for an evening, light a fire in the fire pit and wait until you see barn owl fly out! We've only heard it, but it can't be anything but spectacular.

Tell us about your experience
One of the best campspaces we've visited so far. You have a lot of privacy and a lot of facilities at your disposal such as shower, toilet, a sitting area, beautiful garden with terrace and fire bowl, ... in short, everything you need for a nice outing, whether it is short or long. The name 'a place to bee' has been chosen very nicely because it is not only a nice place but also because the bees have a place there. Ellen & Nico really have an eye and a heart for nature. We will definitely come back here, rain or shine.

How was the contact with the host?
Ellen & Nico are two very jovial people with the 'natural' heart in the right place. They run their campspace very well and you immediately feel at home. They are happy to answer your questions and also give a lot of explanation. The information folder they provide is really great and proves that they have a heart for their own environment and want to share this with their guests.

Tips for new guests?
Be sure to order breakfast because it is very tasty and extensive. What is also highly recommended is the Chamois Walk, of which you determine the distance yourself. There are still nice walks in the area or bike rides, but then you'd rather have better weather than we had. But even with bad weather this is a nice campspace. Who knows, there may soon be a 'bees' course because it is simply the 'place to BEE' :-). Their honey already tastes like more.

Very nice location! It was our first experience through Campspace and everything went very well. You have a lot of privacy in the garden and can really enjoy the surroundings.

How was the contact with the host?
Very kind! Everything was well explained in advance and on the spot. There are a lot of amenities. Really ideal!

What a nice break in between two working days. We had a short but wonderful holiday feeling. Everything you need when traveling is provided. From the practical side to decor and relaxation. Everything has been thought of, down to the last detail to make it as easy as possible for the gardeners.
Thank you for sharing your warm home!

How was the contact with the host?
A warm welcome and nice tour.

Tips for new guests?
If we had to stay there for several days, you would certainly find us on the petanque court. How nice!

Fantastic place: beautiful, large garden with a beautiful view over the fields
Given the changeable weather, we have gratefully made use of the barn, where you can make food, barbecue, eat, kick or chill in the cozy sitting area.

How was the contact with the host?
2 very friendly and passionate people, who are there when you need them and who on the other hand give you all the peace and space.

Tips for new guests?
The breakfast is in one word delicious! Delicious products, very beautifully presented and in that unique setting!
You can also use their barbecue and fire bowl for extra atmosphere and fun :-)

Scout Thomas About the scout program

Tell us about your experience
This Campspace exceeded all expectations. There is a super cozy sitting area in a spacious barn that can ensure that bad weather is not a bummer. You can play petanque, table football and much more.

The optional breakfast with many products from the garden is a must when you are there. I think this Campspace is perfect if you want to get away with a group of friends!

Hi Thomas & Carmen,

Thank you for coming to scout our Campspace and the nice review! We are happy to read that you had a good time despite the bad weather! Thank you so much for the nice pictures and the super nice video! Good luck with your blogging activities!

The weather was not 100% good, but we still had fun. As part of our "staycation" I wanted to give my son a taste of camping...and this was a fantastic introduction. Beautiful garden, good tent and spacious tent, animals, breakfast (with a capital letter), roasting marshmallows, ...

How was the contact with the host?
Jovial & correct!

Hi Peter & Leon,

Thanks for the nice review… you were indeed really unlucky with the weather, exactly autumn instead of summer 🌧🌧. Fortunately Leon didn't seem to care too much. πŸ˜‰

Ellen and Nico, a top duo! When we arrived we were blown away by the beautiful garden. Our expectations were immediately high and we were certainly not disappointed! Very friendly people where you can ask anything. Our daughters aged 5 and 7 were spoiled a lot! The breakfast is definitely recommended, delicious!! The children will not soon forget Ellen's explanation about her bees. :-). We will definitely come back!

How was the contact with the host?
Super! Very jovial people

Tips for new guests?
Definitely try the breakfast, delicious! We now enjoy at home with Ellen's honey and Nico's jam.

Veronique

Tell us about your experience
Although Wanzele is not far from our hometown, it was a place that was completely unknown to us. However, we were allowed to enjoy the hospitality of Ellen and Nico for 5 days. The delicious breakfast, the lovely garden with flowers, playing croquet or petanque, the proximity to nature (with the call of the owlets and a small (and a large) frog in the pond) and the unexpectedly beautiful weather, made us forget that we were so close to home. A camping trip at 'The Place to BEE' was a hit. People spread the word!

How was the contact with the host?
Very nice! Very welcoming!

We would like to keep this fantastic place a secret but Ellen and Nico deserve the best advertisement! A fantastic garden, very friendly welcome and a delicious breakfast. Nico even made a nice cycling route along the wall, Bosberg and Congoberg.
Definitely recommended, we enjoyed it!

How was the contact with the host?
Very good! What a warm, friendly welcome!

Tell us about your experience
Our stay with Ellen and Nico was in one word 'fantastic'! A very pleasant, calm hostess and host who did everything to make us feel right at home. After a hot cycling day we could use their own shower. After this, choose a spot in their beautiful garden to enjoy the sunset at the fire bowl after the bbq. In the morning we could enjoy a delicious breakfast with homemade jams and honey. Tips are superfluous... It is clear that Ellen and Nico themselves have enough ideas to make it a top location and oasis of peace in the middle of nature in the future. We certainly hope to come back here again!

The stay with Ellen and Nico was fantastic. In their beautiful garden you can enjoy a beautiful sunset by the campfire among the flowers. Ellen and Nico are also very good hosts. Their breakfast with different homemade products is highly recommended. Nearby you will find the nature reserve Kalkense Meersen where you can take beautiful walks. The perfect location for a weekend away from the crowds!

Our stay with Nico and Ellen was wonderful. Camping under the apple trees, perfect breakfast with homemade jam and apple juice, a lovely cat, pony and goat at your fingertips and a beautiful setting sun. Ellen and Nico are very hospitable and relaxed. We were there on a work trip, but can also recommend this place for a vacation.

Anse

Tell us about your experience
Our initial holiday plans got cancelled due to the rise of COVID-19, so we decided to stay within Belgium using Campspace.

That’s how we ended up in the beautiful garden of Ellen & Nico.

We received a very warm welcome, and during our complete stay (4days) there wasn’t anything we couldn’t ask.

We ordered the breakfast daily, which was delicious and consisted homegrown products. And we finished every evening with a bonfire, which they also provide.

We are definitely going back ASAP!
