Spend the May holiday on the farm with the whole family

Spending the May holidays with the kids on a real farm? You can! Because our glamping tents can be found at the farmer’s premises. And they are the best farmers in the Netherlands! Camping at the farm means waking up between the cows, horses and chickens, playing hide and seek in the hay barn and learning everything about farm life together with the farmer.

Our farms are cosy, small and snug. The ideal place for children to make friends. So it’s ideal to spend your May holiday here with the children. And you don’t need to worry about the glamping tents. They are luxurious and comfortable. Think comfortable beds, a private toilet, hot water and a well-equipped kitchen. You can even make your favourite coffee.

Stay on a real farm

A unique holiday for the whole family

Camping on a farm is a unique experience for the whole family. Because, admit it, you too enjoy seeing a calf being born. And not only the kids enjoy learning how to milk a cow. Exactly. When will you get the opportunity to experience Dutch farm life up close? At least the children will not be bored: the farmer has to be helped to feed the animals,fresh milk has to be tasted and, with any luck, butter or yoghurt has to be made. By the end of the holidays, it will no longer be a secret for you how milk gets into the pack in the supermarket and what has to happen for eggs to end up in an egg carton.

We must remain honest. A farm holiday doesn’t just mean lazing around and relaxing.

Maybe there is a job to be done on the land or a calf is just born. It’s all possible! In any case, our farmers are ready to teach you the ropes of farming. Did we mention that our farmers are the best in the Netherlands?

On holiday with children in the Netherlands? These are the frequently asked questions.

How is the glamping tent furnished?

Your own tent is fully furnished and fully equipped. You sleep in comfortable beds and in each tent there is a comfortable sofa and a large table for playing games. The kitchen has running water, a gas cooker, a small fridge and a good espresso machine. And, of course, plenty of kitchen inventory. Many of our tents also have an outdoor fireplace by the tent. Good to know: there is no microwave or oven in the tent.

We have different types of tents: you can choose from a luxury Safaritent, luxury Farmtent or luxury Lodgetent. Check them all out here! Whichever tent you choose; they are all child-friendly accommodation.

Unfortunately, our tents do not have a standard baby bed and/or high chair. However, our baby package does include a cot (and a high chair and changing mat). You can hire these for €16.

Should I bring my own groceries?

You can, but it is not necessary. There is always a supermarket nearby where you can buy groceries. In the information folder in the tent you can find the address of the nearest supermarket. Many FarmCamps farms also have a small farm shop with a basic range of food and delicacies. Most farms also offer a sandwich service.

Which farms can I choose from? 

You can choose from these different types of farms: an arable farm, an alpaca farm, an organic farm, a cheese farm, a dairy farm, a horse farm, a sheep farm, a play and learning farm, a cattle farm. You can also choose whether you want a farm near the forest or by the sea, for example. Whichever farm you choose, you can be sure to spend a holiday surrounded by nature.

Is there actually enough to do during a holiday in the Netherlands?

Absolutely! There is plenty for young and old to do on the farm. You can help the farmer look after the animals or do chores on the land. There is always plenty to play with on the farm too: how about go-karts, trampolines and sandboxes? Moreover, the farmer and farmer’s wife often think up all kinds of fun activities.

There is often plenty to discover in the surrounding area too, such as quiet beaches, beautiful nature and nice towns. Being away in your own country is not so crazy after all.

When can I check in and check out?

Check in

You can check in between 15.00 and 19.00 on Mondays and Fridays. If you are a bit late, you can tell the farmer directly. You will receive the phone number of the farm by e-mail 3 days before arrival.


You have until 10 a.m. to check out on Mondays and Fridays. Have you booked a short weekend? Then you can stay until 5 pm on Sunday.

Exceptions are Easter Monday and Whit Monday, when check-out is possible until 17:00.

Can I stay overnight at a FarmCamps farm with a young baby?


On holiday in the Netherlands: what if the weather is bad? 

Should it be chilly, we advise you to dress in layers. Bear in mind that it can be chilly inside the tent if it is cold or windy outside. Bring warm clothes for the evenings.

If rain is forecast, we recommend bringing rubber boots and good rainwear. For yourself and for the children. Also remember to bring some extra old clothes for the kids, as they are guaranteed to get dirty playing on the farm.

We’ve listed all our top tips for bad weather for you. Don’t ignore these tips and read them before you set off. With the Dutch weather, you’d better be prepared.

Important during a holiday with children: is there wifi in the tent? 

Almost all our FarmCamps farms have free wifi at the reception. Some farms even have wifi signal in the tents. If you want to know which locations these are, check our website under ‘Our Farms‘ and select the filter ‘Wifi in the tent’.

Good to know: some farms are remote and therefore do not always have a good wifi signal. At FarmCamps De Geele Bosch and FarmCamps De Verloren Kost, unfortunately, due to the location, not enough MBs are received for a good connection.
