Adventurous holidays with children

Come and stay on the farm!

Look, you can of course choose a holiday park in the Netherlands with lots of entertainment and animation. But…when was the last time the kids had their feet in the clay? Have they ever seen a calf being born? Do they know what it’s like to get horses back into the stable? Have you actually ever seen them make a campfire or build a tree house? If you’ve had to answer no to more than 1 of these questions, it’s time to book a FarmCamps holiday. Our farmers are ready to teach you the ropes of farming. So hop, pack those boots and off to the farm with the whole family.

Adventurous farm stay with all the luxury & comforts

Now don't stress right away whether you can sleep relaxed on the farm. Don't worry: you can! All our glamping tents are luxury horse-proof and cosy and comfortable. You sleep in comfortable beds. You have your own toilet, hot water and a kitchen with everything you need. You can also opt for a shower inside or outside the tent.

From these farms you can choose

You will find our farms from Friesland to Zeeland and from North Holland to Limburg. We have many different farms. So there is something for everyone! Perhaps you would like to stay on a dairy farm or horse farm? Or how about an alpaca farm, organic farm, cheese farm or a play and learning farm? It's all possible!

Adventurous farm vacation

So what makes a farm holiday so adventurous? Well, for example that you can build tree houses, ride bikes on the cross bike track and play in the hay barn, go down the cable car and have water fights. Water sprayer on and go! And so we could go on and on.

But the best part is that you can help the farmer. Finding wood for the campfire, milking the cows, feeding calves and collecting eggs. Maybe the horses need to be taken inside? You don't do that every day either! There is plenty to do on the farm. Just like that, a chicken may have escaped or a calf may be born.

Besides, there is always a tractor on the farm that you can take a little ride on! With the farmer, of course ;-)

Into the forest!

Are you looking for an active holiday in the forest? That is easy to combine with a farm holiday. In fact, seven of our farms have a forest adjacent to or even on their property. And that means hiding among the trees, building tree houses and doing treasure hunts. Ideal for the kids!

Canoeing...make sure you don't fall into the water!

An adventurous outing for the whole family? Go canoeing for a day! The ideal outing for young and old. It is always exciting to see which team can canoe first and...who will not fall over! At these FarmCamps farms you can canoe to your heart's content.

Making a campfire, this is how you do it...

On the farm, you will learn a lot about farm life, but of course it is also nice if you come back with some scouting skills. The farm is an ideal place to make a nice campfire. And it is of course super cosy to end your day together around the campfire. Whether you are on the farm in summer, autumn or spring...a campfire should not be skipped during a FarmCamps holiday. Our farmers all know very well how to make a nice big fire. Of course, you can't be left behind. This blog tells you exactly how to make a campfire. A big and safe campfire, that is. A good start is half the battle, so read up.

For sports enthusiasts...

Table tennis, volleyball, football, cycling, running. It's all possible on the farm. Are you a yoga fan and do you like an adventurous yoga class? At FarmCamps farm Vorstenbosch you can do yoga among the alpacas. And is a normal game of golf really too boring for you? On FarmCamps farmHoeve Sonneclaer you can play farmer's golf. Just in the meadow among the cows. A fun activity for the whole family!
