May holidays

May holidays on the farm

The May holidays are ideal for getting away from it all in the Netherlands. Enjoy warm temperatures, sunshine and beautiful nature. And where better than on a real farm? Newborn animals, a nap in the hammock, watching the cows graze in the meadow….We would know!

Pick spring on the farm!

Away in the May holidays

Most schools add an extra week off to the official holiday week. So it could just be that you have a lovely two weeks off from King's Day. Or maybe until Ascension! Plenty of time at least to get away from it all in your own country.

Are you ready for the very best May holiday in the Netherlands? Our farmers are eager to welcome you to the farm. Book one of our luxury glamping tents now!

Here's where to spend your last minute May holiday

On the farm... at the beach

We have a few farmhouses close to the sea! Ideal for when you really can't choose between beach or countryside. Here you can enjoy farm life, but you can also enjoy an afternoon on the beach.

On the farm... in the forest

Walking in the forest, making tree houses, playing hide-and-seek among the trees. A farm holiday where the children can also play in the woods is, of course, absolutely great! Seven of our farms have a forest adjacent to, or even ón their yard.

On the farm... surrounded by lots of horses & ponies

The best horses are not in stables but at FarmCamps! We have a number of farms where pony fans can ride, brush and cuddle to their hearts' content. Sometimes there is even the possibility of getting a grooming pony and riding lessons.

You camp in luxury on the farm

Our tents are fully furnished and equipped with all conveniences. Nice beds, a nice sofa and a kitchen with espresso machine. The Ranchtents have a private bathroom with bath and shower next to the tent. The Farmtents, Barntents and Lodgetents even have a bathroom in the tent. How nice is it to enjoy the outdoors with the comfort of a holiday villa? Right... And all this just in the Netherlands!

High cuddliness during the May holidays

Cuddling is nowhere as high as on the farm. The rabbits, goats, horses and sheep cannot wait for hugs from you. Who doesn't get happy with all those fluffy, soft skins and all that animal love?

Instructive and fun!

Making cheese, milking cows, helping the farmer feed the animals. A farm holiday is fun but also very educational. Now when do you get the chance to experience real Dutch farm life so closely?

You don't have a child to take care of

You should not be surprised if you 'lose' the kids whole day periods. In fact, the children can have a great time on the farm by themselves. They can go out with the farmer, make new friends and look after the animals. There is also always plenty to play with in the yard: go-karts, trampolines, sandboxes!

A moment of complete relaxation

Camping at the farm is also an ideal holiday for busy parents. You get away from the daily grind for a while. Reading a book, walking or running in the area or sneaking an afternoon nap in the hay? It's all possible on the farm.

Our farmers are the nicest in the Netherlands

We don't have to be modest about this, because it's simply true: our farmers really are the nicest in the Netherlands! All ready to explain you all about farm life and take the kids out on the road.

Less nice weather? Nothing to worry about

In our tents, there are a lot of games. So if the weather is disappointing, you can entertain yourself for hours in the tent. Is your holiday really threatening to fall into the water? Then take advantage of our Good Weather Guarantee and rebook your holiday for free.

Luxury and comfort

Camping is not 'cramping'. All our tents are specially designed this way for guests who need to get used to camping. Or just for the pros who now want to try out that so-called 'glamping' once to see if it really differs that much.

And it does... All tents have their own toilet in the tent as well as standard heating, lovely beds and a kitchen with a gas cooker and running water.

If you want a little more comfort, check out our tents with private shower and/or bath.

Being bored is impossible!

Of course, your farming adventure is only complete if you also learn something on the farm. And our farmers personally make sure that happens, topping it off with a well-deserved Farmers' Diploma.

So one day you'll be taking the cows out to pasture and the next day you'll be milking them. Or shear a sheep in Mariekerke and brush one of the many sweet ponies on our horse farms.

Tired of the animals for a while (yes you won't believe it, but that can happen too), you can go on a walk with the farmer's wife. At one farm you will make your own ice cream from fresh milk and at another you will bake the most delicious biscuits you have ever tasted.

Finished cooking, baking and learning a lot about the farm? Then straight on to the swings, trampoline, go-karts or dive into the well-stocked games box in the tent. So, plenty to do!
