Excelling in hospitality

It is not only the staff who contribute to this, the grounds are also very inviting. The campsite consists of various grass fields, most have a small playground in the middle. This means that children can play to their hearts’ content while parents can keep an eye on things. There are also fields without a playground, for those seeking more peace and quiet. Furthermore, there are various car free fields. The spacious pitches have been provided with a layer of crushed stone (natural stones) for the awning so that you do not have to camp in the mud. Furthermore, there are eleven mobile homes and a holiday home surrounded by a garden (and so plenty of privacy!).

Easy going and friendly

Such an easy going and hospitable atmosphere attracts a public looking precisely for that. At the campsite, you will mainly find families with young children who like playing outdoors and enjoy small-scale entertainment. The campsite is also perfectly suited for seniors, in particular due to the wonderful countryside location. Beside the campsite, in the woods, children can enjoy the countryside. It’s great for playing around and hiking and there is a spot for a large campfire at the edge of the forest. So, an evening of scary stories and roasting marshmallows is guaranteed.
