Everyone knows the province of Zeeland, but did you know that there is a place called Zeeland? This pretty village is in north-eastern Brabant, a virtually undiscovered area near the Brabant town of Uden. This is where the Stroeken family lives: farmer Peter and farmer’s wife Monique and their 3 teenagers Cas, Melle and Loes. They run their dairy farm here where 85 cows are milked every day and 60 calves and young cows also live.
It’s easy to find yourself relaxing in this particularly beautiful spot. The farm is at the end of a cul-de-sac near a beautiful forest. Even when you are arriving you find yourself at peace immediately as the birds chirp away and cows take a rest in the meadow or in the barn.
Here you will also experience Brabant hospitality. Farmer Peter likes to teach you everything about dairy farming, while farmer Monique works with the kids to make delicious ice lollies from the cows’ fresh milk. For them, this fantastic little spot is daily fare, but for guests, this will definitely be the Valhalla of peace and relaxation. This is how beautiful farm life is in Zeeland!
Nestled in the outskirts of the village Zeeland, at the end of a cul-de-sac, is this traditional dairy farm owned by Peter, his wife Monique and their three children. It is a lovely, peaceful area where you can get the full farming experience and indulge in the tranquility of the forest right next door.
At Op de Beemd, you stay in one of the 4 luxury Barntents. Our luxury tent has its own bathroom with bath and shower, a large luxury kitchen and the Hay Sleeping Loft. You can also choose the luxury Haytent, the sister of the Barntent with the same large kitchen, its own toilet and 6 sleeping places, including 2 bunk beds and a double bed. You’ll then shower in the washroom.
At this FarmCamps farm, you are guaranteed to enjoy the peace and quiet. There are only 8 luxury tents, so it will never be crowded. The farm is located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a super beautiful area.
The luxury tents are placed around a cosy and clear field. From the tents, you have a view of the playground equipment. Right next to the glamping field is the Trenste forest, which you can walk straight into from your tent. How cool is that!
On this location, it is not possible to camp using your own equipment. However, there is a luxury holiday home for 5 people that can be rented. It is not possible to bring your own pets to this farm.

That´s why the parents are having a great time too. From your tent you can walk straight into the forest Trentse Bos where you can wander around. A little further on you will find the De Maashorst nature reserve, where you can not only enjoy the beautiful nature but also have a lovely swim.
Or visit nice places like Uden or Grave, an old town on the Maas. And if you are crazy about fighter planes, airbase Volkel is nearby. But rest assured, they do not practice in the evenings and weekends, so you have no nuisance.
Weather permitting this covered pool turns into an open air swimming pool. There is a small slide, a mini waterfall, a sprinkler and a toddler pool area.

The Stroeken family farm borders the Trentse Bossen, an exceptional forest steeped in history, that you enter straight from your tent. You can roll or run down the hill of the former shooting range that was once part of the Volkel Royal Airforce base. Behind the woods you find “The German Track”, an old railroad that played a role during WWII
Situated on the Maas river the fortified City of Grave dates back centuries and is definitely worth visiting with its monumental picturesque city centre, shops and terraces. Ravenstein is a bit more upstream on the Maas river and has a historic centre with a windmill, picturesque houses and city gates dating back to the times of the Castle of Ravenstein.
Volkel Airforce Base is one of the three main operating Dutch bases, home to the F-16 and soon also the JSF. Daily test flights operate from here so chances are you’ll spot a fighter jet fly over. True fans can visit the Airforce Base during the “Airforce Days” event or observe the jets from one of the allocated spotters’ locations.
About 40 minutes away by car the City of Den Bosch is well worth a visit. Cycle or walk on and along the city walls, visit the Sint Jan cathedral or go “underground” and take a boat tour on the Binnendieze waterways through and under Den Bosch. No visit to this city would be complete without tasting the famous local pastry and cream delicacy Bossche Bol.
The kids will never be bored at FarmCamps Op de Beemd
