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.
Breehees is home to 5 livery horses and 25 of the farmer’s own adorable ponies. So if you wish you can keep yourself busy looking after both the horses and ponies. If you’re looking for a different adventure then you can also join Mr. de Boer for a “safari” into the woods or take a tour to the modern dairy farm run by brother Ronny 600 meters down the road.
On the farm itself you’ll find a snack bar with a roofed farm terrace and extensive menu. Enjoy a cup of coffee with a piece of cake, a cold beer, a hamburger or a plate of chips with a nice piece of succulent steak, while the kids are playing outside in the fabulous brand new children’s playground.
Should you wish to leave the farm then Safaripark Beekse Bergen and de Efteling theme park are nearby. In short: a holiday at FarmCamps Breehees has something for everyone to enjoy!
