Ascension

Get away for Ascension

There is plenty to do on the farm during Ascension Day. This year Ascension falls on Thursday 9 May, with us you have the option of staying at the farm for a weekend, midweek or a week. So there is always something to suit your schedule! Playing in the hay barn, clambering on the tractor tyres climbing tower, milking cows with the farmer or baking biscuits and making ice cream with the farmer’s wife. The kids discover every nook and cranny of the farm while mum and dad relax in peace in the hammock or on the veranda at the luxury glamping tent. You can’t imagine a better Ascension, can you?

Luxury camping on a farm

You may be wondering, "Camping on the farm, will I survive?" Of course, you want some luxury and to be pampered. We understand that very well. That is why we have made our tents as luxurious and comfortable as possible. They are not called glamping tents for nothing! Think: comfortable beds, a private toilet, hot water and a kitchen with all the essentials. You can even make your favourite coffee. Want a private bathroom with bath and shower next to the tent? Then choose one of our Ranchtents. You can read more about our glamping tents here.

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, for example, you want a farm close to the forest or right by the sea.

Frequently asked questions about a farm holiday

How is the tent set up?

Our tents are fully furnished and fully equipped. Of course you will sleep in nice beds and in each tent there is a relaxing sofa and a big table to play games at. In the kitchen, there is a gas cooker, running water, a small fridge and a good espresso machine. And, of course, lots of kitchen inventory. Many of our tents also have an outdoor fireplace by the tent. This way, you can also enjoy the outdoors in the evening.

Good to know: there is no microwave or oven in the tent.

Is there a bathroom in the tent?

No worries, you don't have to shower at the farmer's! You can have a nice shower in the heated sanitary building on the farm. The Ranch Tents have a private bathroom with bath and shower next to the tent. The Farm Tents, Barn Tents and Lodge Tents (our most luxurious tent) even have a bathroom in the tent.

Is there enough to do on the farm during Ascension?

There is certainly plenty to do on the farm during Ascension Day. Indeed, boredom is impossible! The children take the cows out to pasture one day to help with milking. The next day, they can help with a chore in the fields, feed the goats or brush the horses. Of course, your farming adventure is only complete if you also learn something on the farm. And our farmers personally make sure of that. Topped off with a well-deserved Farmer's diploma.

But there is plenty to play at the farm too! Building tree houses, cycling on the cross-bike track, playing in the hay barn, down the cable car, swinging, go-karting, playing football. We could go on and on. On our booking page select by activity very easily. That way, you can be sure your children's favourite activities are included.

Can you entertain (inside) in bad weather?

Absolutely! Of course, it can't always be nice weather! If the weather is a bit off, that's not a problem at all. Each tent is equipped with a game box that will keep you entertained for hours.

But, of course, a true Dutch family does not let a bit of bad weather stop them. Even in bad weather, the cows need to be milked and the animals fed. The farmer could also use your help inside in sweeping and mucking out the stables and feeding the calves.

What kind of farms are the accommodations on?

We have many different farms. This way, you can choose from 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.

Should I bring my own towels?

Towels are unfortunately not included in the price. You can bring them yourself, but you can also order a handy towel pack with one large and one small towel for €5.

Do I need to bring my own bedding?

The sleeping quarters are fully furnished with duvets and pillows and clean bedding. You pay €6.50 per person for bed linen for the entire stay.

At some farms, you can also opt for the Farmers' Bed layout. For €6 per bed, your beds will then be made before arrival.

Can we bring our dog?

Most farms allow you to bring a dog. For this purpose, we have a limited number of tents available on each farm. Most of times one dog is allowed. If you would like to bring a dog, please indicate this in the travel party when booking. You will then see if it is possible to bring your dog. It is therefore possible that tents are no longer available in your desired period. So, in that case, you cannot bring your dog or you have to choose another period or farm. Due to transmittable diseases, only dogs are allowed. So unfortunately you are not allowed to bring other pets.

Can friends and family visit?

Day guests are certainly welcome at most farms, but usually for a fee. The fee varies from farm to farm and is usually only a few euros per guest, per day. Check with the farmer(s) on arrival.

Day guests may participate in the free activity programme, but this too is in consultation with the farmer(s). Of course, if there is space, day guests may just join paid activities. You can arrange this on the spot with the farmer(s).
