Winter camping in peace and space!
About this campspace #s003643
As a winter camper, hiker or cyclist you are very welcome to enjoy peace and space with us. Because as a family we live spaciously in the Frisian countryside and also like to share this experience, we are happy to offer a holiday spot for those seeking tranquility and nature lovers. You can pitch a small or medium-sized tent with us and you can choose from various sheltered spots in a small forest plot. So there is also the option to hang a hammock or tarp between the trees.
With us you can camp wonderfully primitive in privacy! There is an outdoor shower with hot water, a compost toilet, a simple outdoor kitchen with pans and bbq grates and a boulders campfire area with a picnic table and a low table. A full wheelbarrow of firewood is available for 5 euros. The tourist tax is included in the price.
If you like it, a wood-fired Finnish sauna is at your disposal (for 8 euros, including firewood). You can enjoy a starry night sky here on a lounger next to the patio heater.
On our plot is the so-called Peat Route, which is open for pleasure boating in the summer months. If you bring a canoe you can explore the area from the water. You can enjoy walking, running and cycling on country roads and cycle paths in the area. Nearby is also the DeHimrik outdoor swimming pool, which is open in the summer months in good weather. There is a challenging mountain bike route in the nearby forests and meadow areas of Beetsterszwaag. The child-friendly play forest Sparjebird with a welcoming log cabin is a 5-minute walk away. The nature reserves are also nearby; Wijnterper Skar, It Mandefjild near Bakkeveen, Het Drents Friese Woud National Park and the Alde Feanen National Park. Enough to do and experience!
With us you can be outside, to do something, or to do nothing at all!

Meet David, your host
We had a great few days in David's forest. We had the whole forest to ourselves. Enjoyed sitting by the campfire every evening. Nice place for quiet and simple camping, but with all the luxury you need. Everything is there what you need, even if you want chairs with cushions. Some tools for cooking and washing dishes are handy, but pans are present.
David is a good host and a lot is possible in consultation!
Nice environment for touring, you will get to places where you normally do not come so easily.

David was a great enthousiastic host, the place was neat and well equipped, quiet and wide views. On walking distance from beautifal friese wald
A place where you have the feeling that you are camping in the wild, but with the luxury of an eco toilet and lovely outdoor shower. It was the first time that we went to sleep in a small tent with our children aged 4 and almost 2. They thought camping was one big adventure! Although the place is not specifically designed for children, David did come up with some toys for the children to use during our stay. The play forest and lunch tent are a 10-minute walk away.

We had a fantastic weekend! We really enjoyed it did a nice hike on the advice of our host David and spent a wonderful night on the farmland
Horse farm with a really cosy forest in the back of the garden with great views. Very private, it feels like you in the middle of nature instead of someone backyard. Great fire pit and well equiped outdoor kitchen. There is an outdoor hot shower and a compost toilet. David is eager to share his property and is very hospitable and thought of almost everything to make your stay more comfortable. There are 5 Campspaces but David told us that he will host a maximum of two different travel party's to make sure it keeps its private and peaceful atmosphere.
It was fantastic. The hosts received me very warmly last night. It was great that they wanted to share their beautiful place with me. All compliments, I definitely recommend it to anyone who is on holiday with their bicycle.
David warmly welcomed me and showed me the forest behind the house where I could stand where I wanted. With a view of a meadow and flowering foxglove. When I was asked about where to walk in the area, I was handed an A4 with tailor-made walks. Top service and a wonderful weekend in peace.
Fantastic place for nature and peace seekers. The bunch all to yourself. Nice outdoor shower and toilet well thought out. The tip on behalf of our children: a natural swimming pond. Very nice sweet helpful host David and his wife! We had great days in Hemrik. Thanks!!
