May school holidays at FarmCamps

May school holidays in The Netherlands fall early this year – pretty close to Kingsday or Ascension Day in fact, so the chances are you are already looking for something to do with your free time. This is the perfect time to escape to the country and spend some time outdoors with the family.

Treat yourself to some pure luxury with one of our Safari, Farm, Lodge, Ranch or Barn Tents – a true glamping experience – and all this in The Netherlands!

In 2021, the official May school holiday period runs from April 30th to May 9th, and our farmers are looking forward to a welcoming you on their farms.

The official May vacation runs from April 30 to May 9 and our farmers are eager to welcome you on the farms.

Book quickly for the May holiday

Luxury and comfort

Camping is not a ‘cramped affair’. All our tents are specially designed for guests who have to get used to camping. Or for the pros who want to try out the so-called ‘glamping’ to see if it really is that different.

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

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

Our farms

De Smulhoeve

Kaatsheuvel is full of fairytales but don’t be fooled because this stunning livery is very real! Karin Smulders, her husband and their three outgoing kids Mees (16), Suus (14) and Faas (10) live here together with her Mum and Dad.

Oranjepolder

Meet Sentine, Gavin and their three children Jacob, Alice and Tobias. This lovely couple met on a construction site in Middelburg where Gavin was the archaeologist and she the trainee.

Alpaca Vorstenbosch

While staying on the farm of farmers Willem-Mathijs, Anne and their two kids Evi and Nina, you will become familiar with the miraculous world of the alpaca.

De Buitenhoeve

You could call farmers Aico and Kirsten high school sweethearts as their life together started in secondary school 10 years ago. Brought up on a farm, Aico’s love for farming came naturally, whereas Kirsten was more into making cheeses.

BoeBaDoe

It was a farmers tale of love and romance but with a twist when Floor (originally from Groningen) joined Bart on his farm after the two met on a dating site for farmers.

Breehees

Typical “Brabant welcome” at FarmCamps Breehees Breehees Farmers Carolien and Huub welcome you to their farm with typical Brabant hospitality. Being proud ‘Brabanders’ through and through this comes as second nature to them. Carolien and Huub run this small scale livery and farm campsite, but you are also likely to bump into Mum and Dad, Mr. and Mrs. de Boer whilst out and about on the farm.

Op de Beemd

Everyone has heard of the Dutch province of Zeeland, but did you know that there is another place called Zeeland? This beautiful village is located in North-Brabant, close to Uden and in an area that is largely undiscovered by tourists.

De Bosrand

It was not only love at first sight for farmer Martijn and farmer's wife Naduah when they met each other...... it was the same when they saw farm De Bosrand for the first time.

Hoeve Sonneclaer

Is this delicious organic ice cream really made from the milk of these cows? You bet! Everyday you’ll find Stefan busy beavering away in his ice cream parlor while farmer Barend is taking care of the cows who supply the parlor with their milk.

Fleur Stables

For horse and beach lovers the world over, FarmCamps Fleur Stables is the ideal place for you! Situated in the Noord-Holland province, this equine livery is home to over 50 horses and ponies and is located only 10 km from the famous Dutch seaside resort of Callantsoog.

Stolkse Weide

Wow, wat een rust en ruimte! Op de boerderij van boer Wilco en boerin Durkje ontdek je een traditionele melkveehouderij in een oer-Hollands polderlandschap. Vanaf je tent kijk je uit over de weilanden met de vele slootjes en zie je alleen maar grazende koeien, schapen en de weidevogels.

Five Star

This former arable farm from Farmer Jan and his wife Ella now turns it’s hand to all things equine, together with a ‘nature education center’. No longer a working farm, FarmCamps Five Star looks to teach your mini-farmers in a fun and enjoyable way about agriculture and farm life.

‘t Looveld

Maxima in levende lijve ontmoeten? Dat kan bij FarmCamps ’t Looveld in Drenthe. Op deze traditionele melkveehouderij geven boer Johan en boerin Matine hun melkkoeien allemaal koninklijke namen, dus hier ontmoet je ze allemaal.

De Geele Bosch

Meet Farmer Bill, farmer's wife Ella and their son Michel. They have been living on this beautiful Frisian farm since the beginning of 2017, where, in addition to their young stock farm, they have also started a small horse pension.

De Oostermaat

On the Pieperpolder 3 (“pieper” means potato in Dutch) Rindert and Gerdien don’t grow spuds but keep livestock: 110 cows and roughly 50 young cattle. Their modern dairy farm lies hidden behind a dyke in the “Midden-Nederland” region near picturesque hanseatic cities and “Het Zwarte Meer” nature reserve.

Mariekerke

If counting sheep is your way of getting to sleep then look no further than here. It’s doubtful that you’ll count them all though as there are more than 100 sheep milked daily at the Farm of Albert and wife Annelie.

Den Branderhorst

Here, time feels like it has stood still. As you arrive through the winding, tree-lined, uphill road to Den Branderhorst farm your stress will already begin to slip away. Farmer Eddy and his wife Anne-Marie enjoy taking their time to show you how a small-scale dairy farm works.

De Verloren Kost

Contrary to the rest of Holland, South Limburg boasts beautiful rolling hills where you can almost forget you are in The Netherlands. Nestled between the valleys surrounding Gulpen lies FarmCamps De Verloren Kost. The meandering drive up to the farm is as spectacular as the location itself.

Op Flakkee

At this modern dairy farm on the island of Goeree-Overflakkee, it is not just the guests who enjoy all the luxury. The cows are also treated like princesses by Farmer Huibert, farmer's wife Annet and their four children Corens, Annelie, William and Marijn.

De Kamperhoek

Papa’s en mama’s opgelet! FarmCamps De Kamperhoek is echt een Walhalla voor stoere jongens en meiden. Vol trots laten boer Huub en zijn tienerzoons je hun loods vol grote landbouwmachines en tractoren zien waarmee de boer zijn 70 hectare akkers bewerkt.

Boredom is impossible!

Your farming adventure is of course only complete if you also learn something on the farm. And our farmers personally make sure that happens, with a well-deserved Farmer-Servant Diploma as the icing on the cake.

So one day you will be taking the cows out of the meadow and the next day you will be milking them. Or you can shave a sheep in Mariekerke and brush one of the many sweet ponies on our horse farms.

If you have had enough of the animals (believe it or not, but that can happen), you can go on a walk with the farmer’s wife. On one farm you can make your own ice cream from fresh milk and on another farm you can bake the most delicious biscuits you have ever tasted.

Finished cooking, baking and learning? Then go straight to the swings, trampoline, go-karts or dive into the well-stocked game box in the tent. So there is plenty to do!
