De Kamperhoek

Arable farm in Vogelwaarde, Zeeland

The promised land for tractor fans and bunny cuddlers

At one of the quietest spots in the Netherlands you will find arable farm FarmCamps De Kamperhoek; a Valhalla for ‘tough’ boys and girls. On this beautiful spot in beautiful Zeeuws Vlaanderen live farmer Huub, farmers wife Martine and their three young adult sons. Farmer Huub was born on the farm and is already the 4th generation to live and work here. All kinds of products are grown here that you will certainly find in your kitchen cupboard: brown beans for jars, potatoes for Lays crisps and sugar beet for sugar cubes, but also grass seed for football pitches.

Proudly, farmer Huub shows off the shed full of large agricultural machines and tractors he uses to work his 100 hectares of fields. If you are a big tractor fan like them, you are in for a treat. They have a large collection of John Deere ‘s, in all shapes and sizes. Not only is the large shed full of vehicles, outside in the yard there is also a large collection of go-karts, pedal tractors and (cross) bikes for hours of racing fun.

This cool farm also has a high cuddle factor. You can snuggle for hours with the tame sheeps and sweet rabbits as well as help look after the chickens and ducks. And of course there is lots to play on the farm: go cross-biking on the small track, race on the go-karts, play hide-and-seek in the Hay Barn, do tricks on the trampoline, slide down the cable car or play in the water fun meadow. Plenty to play at, for young and old.

De Kamperhoek is a real family business, with everyone doing their bit. Martine works in her own practice as a paediatric physiotherapist during the day, but at home she is always busy with the campsite. Youngest son Timon helps her with that. Milan and Yannick enjoy helping in the fields. They also love socialising. So, not only do you learn on this farm about how everything grows and blooms and eventually ends up in your own kitchen, farmer Huub and farmer’s wife Martine also organise super cosy campfire evenings and love to chat with their guests.

So, do you fancy an unforgettable holiday with this super hospitable farming family? Here you will find it all! From peace and quiet to conviviality by the campfire. From the wide views over the fields to swimming at one of the nearby Westerschelde beaches. Or take a trip to one of the beautiful Belgian cities such as Antwerp, Ghent, Bruges or Knokke.

Where do I sleep

Few have experienced the natural beauty of the Zeeland-Flanders low lands. This beautiful farm is surrounded by typical Dutch dykes together with tall, grandiose trees with fields and meadows that stretch for as far as your eye can see. Tucked between the Dutch and Belgian landscape it is renowned for its mix of the best of both cultures.

On this farm you can choose from one of our 22 luxury tents. The Safari Tent includes a private toilet (showers are in the nearby heated bathing facilities). Or you can treat yourself to a little extra luxury and opt for our luxurious Lodge Tent with a private bathroom with shower and toilet in your tent. If you fancy a bath tub, than the Barn Tent is the best choice. It also comes with a handy dishwasher. There’s so much luxury – all you have to do is pick which type you prefer!

This FarmCamps farm is located on a quiet dike and is surrounded by meadows and fields. A few hundred metres away is a large fishing pond and 5 km away is the Westerschelde with lovely beaches.

10 Safari Tents are pitched on a private field. In the middle is the camp fire where Farmer Huub twice a week stokes the fire while enjoying a cool beer. The 4 Lodge Tents and 8 Barn Tents (4 of them are with airconditioning) are both situated on a beautiful and private field surround by peace, space and privacy. The Barntents are overlooking open meadows.

The site also offers two extra fields for any guests who wish to bring their own camping equipment or are staying in one of their hikers’ cabins or farmhouses.

Finding out is fun!

No farm adventure would be complete without learning a thing or two from the professionals. Farmer Huub and his wife Martine take this very personally! So you can expect to learn all about how to grow their crops but also how to use that knowledge in your own kitchen garden back at your tent. Naturally the farmyard furries need your help too so expect to take care of chickens, rabbits and other small farm animals.  

If you prefer to play, the farm will satisfy your needs. Go tobogganing, set the fastest time on the bicycle cross track, jump on the trampoline, play with sand and water, build a hut with your new friends in the Hay Barn or play a game of football. Everything is possible and allowed.
