About this campspace #s002233

We are Corona proof - our guests have their own sanitary facilities.

It is just pure here, as if you are camping in the wild. This Campspace is intended for people who want to relax. So come camp 'wild' in my large backyard. A beautiful view from the tent is assured. I also like to show you the food forest - a patch of land with fruit and nut trees that I am now creating in my garden.

Located in the old peat areas of Drenthe, you have a view of the vast fields. The Hondsrug is on the west side of the Hunze. With the Drouwenerzand. An old drifting sand area with juniper berries and old forests. You can take a walk on the Boomkroonpad, visit hunebedden and visit the Hunebedmuseum in the area. On the east side of the peat colonies you will find a beautiful nature reserve near the Ruiten Aa. A visit to the Bourtange fortress is also very interesting.

You can also buy fresh asparagus and blueberries from the neighbor's farm (subject to the season).

Mark recommends this campspace

This location absolutely deserves 5 stars. Upon arrival, the host will give you a warm welcome. A very nice man who is happy to show you what is on site. Then he lets you go and you won't see him anymore. Exactly what you want when you are looking for peace and quiet, but it is always close by when you need it. Location is beautiful. Very natural, you hear different (predatory) birds and there were plenty of insects during this season. Waking up was magical, with the sun shining through the mist between the trees. I will definitely go again next year!

If you like peace and quietness then it's camping spot would be perfect! We were alone and we had a stunning view. What was nice was that you could make a fire in a fire bowl from the Host, we could even gather wood at the campsite. Furthermore, an excellent toilet and shower. Welcoming Host, very nice but quickly gave us the space to be alone I would definitely recommend this campsite!

Luise recommends this campspace

It was a very nice place. Beautiful surroundings and hospitable reception. The sanitary facilities were luxury for a camping spot and the free-roaming chickens, cats and the occasional pheasant made it possible to really enjoy nature. We enjoyed it!

The second campsite was with Robin, also in Drouwenerveen. Beautiful panoramic view, nice host with many ideas and a beautiful old-fashioned farm.

It was a great first experience with Campspace. We will set up our tent through you more often. The contact with the owners was excellent. They received us hospitably and then left us alone. The location is beautiful and the sanitary is in order. What I did not know, but very handy: You can drive your car all the way to your tent. There is also cold drinking water and an old counter halfway through the site (for washing dishes).

On arrival, we were shown to a beautiful field where we could put up our tent. A little further were luxurious sanitary facilities and a little closer by cold water tap. The host left us alone. All in all a great experience.

Last night I stayed in the garden of a family in Drouwenerveen in Drenthe, the Netherlands. The host is a family who own the house and the big garden that is behind the house. They have made a place where you can put up your tent. The view is beautiful. On one side you are looking at a wide field. At the other side you look into a small forest where you also can walk through. On their terrain they have a few chickens walking around. In the surrounding you also see a lot of hares and pheasants. In the morning you are waken up by the sound of a lot of birds. I also got surprised with fog what made the forest very mystical. In the area you can find a lot of nice small towns and biking and hiking routes. Beside all this they also use other sources then gaz to provide for warm water.

Hanneke recommends this campspace

Contact with the host was great and the place was beautiful. The plumbing was well arranged and modern. You are in the backyard but you have the feeling that you are really camping in nature. The host has made a washing-up area with water near the place. For the shower and toilet, you have to walk a bit to the back of the house where you have your own private bathroom. There is also electricity available.

A great place, near forest and heath, on the edge of the peat areas. An incredible amount of birds, lighting a fire, silence Robin we did not see much, but a great man.

Dorin recommends this campspace

We slept on Robin’s field for two nights. Robin leaves you completely free and you have a wonderful private place here for yourself. The sanitary facilities are modern and clean. There are chickens and cats around who say hello every now and then. A fire in the fire pit with a beautiful sunset made it complete for us.

We (2 pensionados) enjoyed our one week stay at Campspace “Veldzicht”. The site is located on a large semi-wild plot. The place in front of the tent is very spacious and neatly mowed. On one side is a softly rustling poplar forest and on the other side a clear view of field and sky. The (private) sanitary facilities are not designed for campers, but function excellently. The host is friendly, helpful (with empty batteries…), and respects your privacy 100%. You feel as free here as the many birds around you and you feel alone in the world.

Laurens recommends this campspace

Robin is a friendly host who showed us the shower facilities and several places we could pitch our tent on arrival, but left us alone afterwards. There were piles of old wood from which we made a lovely campfire and put two of Robin’s chairs next to it. There are also dolmens in the area, which is a nice trip. The trip was a success, although I wonder why you pay double for 2 people compared to 1 person.

Jade recommends this campspace

After a long bike ride we arrived at Robin’s house. Here we were allowed to choose from three different spots on the site behind his house. The nice thing is that between the grounds and the house there is a small piece of forest, making it feel more like a campsite than sleeping in someone’s backyard. The bathroom (accessible via a private entrance at the rear of the house) is nice and neat, and during the COVID period only for you as a camper. In addition, the fire bowl is ready and you can walk around the forest. We liked the place so much that we are back now! As an extra, Robin has made an outdoor counter with washing-up area and drinking water near the camping spot. If all together highly recommended.

Bert recommends this campspace

Wonderfully quiet location between a field and an accessible forest plot. Own entrance/exit from the back. Suitable for walkers, cyclists, cars, and motorcyclists (like me). Sufficient catering and shops within cycling distance. Sanitary neat (also depends on yourself). The owner is friendly and, if requested, leaves you completely alone during your stay, but is available. Tent field with water tap, wide view and fireplace. Lots of flowers, herbs, and other crops, which also means varied insect and bird visits. Free-range chickens around the house (do not enter the tent field). Depending on the season, various fruits for picking.
