About this campspace #s005732

Your host

Robbe-Kristien

Our old stall of 5m by 5m has been transformed into a hiker's hut for walkers, cyclists or the adventurers among us.
The "Keg" has already made a lot of history. If the walls could talk...
Here in the Kempen (Grobbendonk, hamlet of Eisterlee) you can enjoy the wooded area, the meadows, and beautiful rivers the Kleine Nete and De Aa for days on end. Here you can take a refreshing dip or go canoeing.
Various hiking and cycling junctions are the start of wonderful tours towards water, forest and city (Lier, Herentals, Antwerp, ...)
For a walk in Grobbendonk's area you only have to leave the door for the Pidpabos or Het Oude molenbos, or a tour around the Nete ... Afterwards you can enjoy a delicious meal at Hof Van Eisterlee or grab one at Bartel and Dorien in den Herberg ( lovely place to stay)
Various nature reserves in the vicinity such as Lovenhoek, Viersel gebroekt, Schupleer, .... are also recommended.
The kids, and yes their parents too, can romp around on the two children's farms; The Cartwheel or Spring Heath.
After a wonderful day of enjoyment, you can see the deer walking across the field from the hiker's hut during twilight (morning or evening) or quietly light the wood stove / campfire to enjoy our delicious Grobbendonkse Trippel or another delicious Kempen beer. ( Bierhandel Willems More than 800 beers )

Hopefully you are also in the mood for an adventure?
If so, then we would like to welcome you!

We are Robbe and Kristien. We have two daughters, Janne and Suzan. And a dog, Dash. We have spent several years renovating our long gable farm and have lived in 't Vaatje ourselves. And now we think it's time for others to enjoy it too!

très joli logement et endroit superbe. proche du canal et de la Nette. Dommage que le nettoyage ne soit pas à la hauteur de l'endroit....

How was the contact with the host?

Atmospheric cottage, with a beautiful view of sparse nature. Lovely wood burning stove and outdoor fire pit. The cottage was very basic with little equipment. That is part of a hiker's cabin, but the price was not worth it. It says € 35,- but with two people it will be € 70- ex costs.
Except for the beautiful field and the forest, the area is not very attractive. Transport transhipment industry on canal.

How was the contact with the host?
Friendly hosts, who were willing to give a bottle of oil and some salt.

Tips for new guests?
Bring everything yourself. Except plates cutlery cups glasses and pans.

I had a very nice stay at 't Vaatje. Definitely recommended!
Very nice location, ideal base for walking or cycling.
The cottage is beautifully and conveniently furnished. Very spacious for 1 person, possibly a bit tight in winter with 4 people. There is all sorts of cooking utensils, etc. available and if something is missing you can easily ask the hosts.

How was the contact with the host?
Smooth and friendly hosts!

Tips for new guests?
There are plenty of shops nearby, so you don't really need to buy in advance.

Our stay was fantastic. A very nice old house transformed into a very nice overnight accommodation. In the evening enjoy the wood stove or outside a small campfire with a local beer. The hiker's cabin is basic, but it doesn't feel that way at all and is highly recommended for a nice weekend away.

What a charming and characterful place to stay. I thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility. On arrival the wood stove was burning which immediately gave a welcome feeling.

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly people and quick responses.

Tip for the host: I didn't really know what was present in the house. I had brought a sleeping bag with me, but a liner would have been sufficient because there was a duvet. I hadn't brought a towel for after showering, but this turned out not to be present.

Tell us about your experience
What a beautiful outdoor spot, inside nostalgic charm and everything you need to tune out and slow down (with blocks of wood on the stove), outside the fire bowl with three brine takes you directly into outdoor life. A little bit of the best of both worlds

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly hosts, help if necessary but you certainly also have your own privacy

Tips for new guests?
just come down, spot deer on the field in front of the keg, go into the Kempen woods and enjoy!
