Ascension Day

An extra long weekend of pure enjoyment

Ascension Day at FarmCamps

There is plenty to do on the farm during Ascension Day. Playing in the Hay and Hay Play Barn, climbing on the Tractor Tire Climbing Tower, milking cows with the farmer or baking cookies and ice cream with the farmer’s wife. With your new friends you will discover every corner of the farm while mom and dad relax in the hammock or on the porch by the very luxurious tent.

Ascension Day in 2022 is on the 26th of May. An excellent time to get away from it all. Just book the extra long Ascension weekend and drive to the farm on Wednesday after work.

Luxury and comfort

Camping is not “cramming. All our tents are specially designed for guests who have to get used to camping. Or for the pros who now want to try that so-called ‘glamping’ to see if it really differs that much.

And it does … All tents have a private toilet in the tent and also standard heating, comfortable beds and a kitchen with stove and running water.

If you want more comfort, check out our tents with private shower and / or bath.

Our farms

Alpaca Vorstenbosch

While staying on the farm of farmers Willem-Mathijs, Anne and their two kids Evi and Nina, you will become familiar with the miraculous world of the alpaca.

Breehees

Typical “Brabant welcome” at FarmCamps Breehees Breehees Farmers Carolien and Huub welcome you to their farm with typical Brabant hospitality. Being proud ‘Brabanders’ through and through this comes as second nature to them. Carolien and Huub run this small scale livery and farm campsite, but you are also likely to bump into Mum and Dad, Mr. and Mrs. de Boer whilst out and about on the farm.

Den Branderhorst

Here, time feels like it has stood still. As you arrive through the winding, tree-lined, uphill road to Den Branderhorst farm your stress will already begin to slip away. Farmer Eddy and his wife Anne-Marie enjoy taking their time to show you how a small-scale dairy farm works.

‘t Looveld

Maxima in levende lijve ontmoeten? Dat kan bij FarmCamps ’t Looveld in Drenthe. Op deze traditionele melkveehouderij geven boer Johan en boerin Matine hun melkkoeien allemaal koninklijke namen, dus hier ontmoet je ze allemaal.

De Kamperhoek

Papa’s en mama’s opgelet! FarmCamps De Kamperhoek is echt een Walhalla voor stoere jongens en meiden. Vol trots laten boer Huub en zijn tienerzoons je hun loods vol grote landbouwmachines en tractoren zien waarmee de boer zijn 70 hectare akkers bewerkt.

De Smulhoeve

Kaatsheuvel is full of fairytales but don’t be fooled because this stunning livery is very real! Karin Smulders, her husband and their three outgoing kids Mees (16), Suus (14) and Faas (10) live here together with her Mum and Dad.

Hoeve Sonneclaer

Is this delicious organic ice cream really made from the milk of these cows? You bet! Everyday you’ll find Stefan busy beavering away in his ice cream parlor while farmer Barend is taking care of the cows who supply the parlor with their milk.

De Bosrand

It was not only love at first sight for farmer Martijn and farmer's wife Naduah when they met each other...... it was the same when they saw farm De Bosrand for the first time.

Mariekerke

If counting sheep is your way of getting to sleep then look no further than here. It’s doubtful that you’ll count them all though as there are more than 100 sheep milked daily at the Farm of Albert and wife Annelie.

Op de Beemd

Everyone has heard of the Dutch province of Zeeland, but did you know that there is another place called Zeeland? This beautiful village is located in North-Brabant, close to Uden and in an area that is largely undiscovered by tourists.

De Oostermaat

On the Pieperpolder 3 (“pieper” means potato in Dutch) Rindert and Gerdien don’t grow spuds but keep livestock: 110 cows and roughly 50 young cattle. Their modern dairy farm lies hidden behind a dyke in the “Midden-Nederland” region near picturesque hanseatic cities and “Het Zwarte Meer” nature reserve.

BoeBaDoe

It was a farmers tale of love and romance but with a twist when Floor (originally from Groningen) joined Bart on his farm after the two met on a dating site for farmers.

Fleur Stables

For horse and beach lovers the world over, FarmCamps Fleur Stables is the ideal place for you! Situated in the Noord-Holland province, this equine livery is home to over 50 horses and ponies and is located only 10 km from the famous Dutch seaside resort of Callantsoog.

Stolkse Weide

Wow, wat een rust en ruimte! Op de boerderij van boer Wilco en boerin Durkje ontdek je een traditionele melkveehouderij in een oer-Hollands polderlandschap. Vanaf je tent kijk je uit over de weilanden met de vele slootjes en zie je alleen maar grazende koeien, schapen en de weidevogels.

De Verloren Kost

Contrary to the rest of Holland, South Limburg boasts beautiful rolling hills where you can almost forget you are in The Netherlands. Nestled between the valleys surrounding Gulpen lies FarmCamps De Verloren Kost. The meandering drive up to the farm is as spectacular as the location itself.

Oranjepolder

Meet Sentine, Gavin and their three children Jacob, Alice and Tobias. This lovely couple met on a construction site in Middelburg where Gavin was the archaeologist and she the trainee.

Five Star

This former arable farm from Farmer Jan and his wife Ella now turns it’s hand to all things equine, together with a ‘nature education center’. No longer a working farm, FarmCamps Five Star looks to teach your mini-farmers in a fun and enjoyable way about agriculture and farm life.

Op Flakkee

At this modern dairy farm on the island of Goeree-Overflakkee, it is not just the guests who enjoy all the luxury. The cows are also treated like princesses by Farmer Huibert, farmer's wife Annet and their four children Corens, Annelie, William and Marijn.

De Geele Bosch

Meet Farmer Bill, farmer's wife Ella and their son Michel. They have been living on this beautiful Frisian farm since the beginning of 2017, where, in addition to their young stock farm, they have also started a small horse pension.

De Buitenhoeve

You could call farmers Aico and Kirsten high school sweethearts as their life together started in secondary school 10 years ago. Brought up on a farm, Aico’s love for farming came naturally, whereas Kirsten was more into making cheeses.

What is Ascension Day?

On Ascension Day, Christianity commemorates Jesus going to God in heaven. This was thirty-nine days after he rose from the dead. The celebration is part of the Easter cycle, so Ascension Day is actually the fortieth day of Easter. Ascension Day always falls on a Thursday, ten days before Pentecost.
