Taking care of animals on the farm?

Book the best family holiday in the Netherlands

The perfect outing: grooming animals together

Do your children absolutely love taking care of animals? Then a FarmCamps holiday is perfect for you! On the farm it is a real animal mess.
One day, the children take the cows out to pasture to help with milking. The next day, they can feed the goats, cuddle the rabbits or brush the ponies. To top it all off, they get a well-deserved farmhand diploma.

Holidays on a farm among the animals are of course great for children. But as parents, you naturally want a bit of luxury too. We totally understand that! Fortunately, at the FarmCamps farms you stay in a luxury glamping tent. Our tents are fully equipped. Lovely beds, private sanitary facilities, electricity, hot water and a kitchen with gas cooker and espresso machine. There are even tents with a private bathroom with bath and shower in or next to the tent.

Frequently asked questions about our glamping accommodations

How do I know which animals are on the farm to look after?

On our special search & book page, you can select by animal. That way you know exactly which animals are on the farm. You can also select, for example, by cuddly pony, grooming pony or riding lesson.

Is there enough to do on the farm besides taking care of animals?

Absolutely! Indeed: boredom is impossible! There is plenty to play at the farm too! The children can build tree houses, ride bikes on the cross-bike track, play in the hay barn, go down the cable car, swing, go-karting, play football. And we could go on and on. On our book page, you can easily select by activity. That way you can be sure to find your children’s favourite activities.

How is the tent furnished?

Our tents are fully furnished and equipped with all conveniences. Of course you will sleep in nice beds and there is a large table to play games at and a big sofa. In the kitchen there is running water, a gas cooker and a good espresso machine. And, of course, plenty of kitchen inventory. Many of our tents also have an outdoor fireplace by the tent. So 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 farmers’! You can shower in the heated sanitary building on the farm. The Ranchtents have a private bathroom with bath and shower next to the tent. The Farmtents, Barntents and Lodgetents (our most luxurious tents) even have a bathroom in the tent

Can you have fun (inside) in bad weather?

Sure! Of course, the animals also have to be taken care of in bad weather. The cows just need to be milked and all the animals fed. The farmer could also use your help inside to sweep and muck out the stables!

If the weather is not so good, that’s no problem at all. Every tent is equipped with a game box that will keep you entertained for hours. Is your holiday really about to fall apart? Then make use of our Fine Weather Guarantee and rebook your holiday for free.

Can you always join the farm activities if you do not book them in advance?

Some activities have a maximum and minimum number of participants. Want to be sure of a place? Then book the activities online, prior to the holiday. In any case, the children receive our Farmer’s Passport for free on arrival and can use it to get the Farmer’s Diploma.

Does every FarmCamps have the same sports facilities?

Each farm has its own sports facilities ranging from farmers’ golf, table tennis, volleyball court, football pitch and canoe hire to fishing facilities.

On what kind of farms are the accommodations located?

We have many different farms. For example, 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.

Can we bring our dog?

If you would like to bring your dog, please indicate this when booking with your travel group. You will automatically see if it is possible to bring your dog. It may be that there is no tent available in your desired period. In that case, you will not be able to bring your dog or you will have to choose another period or farm.
