About this destination
Enjoy a holiday on a working livestock farm
Experience ultimate outdoor living in the Dwingeloo countryside in Drenthe. You will stay on the Lange Weide farm run by farmers, Rik and Marian and their farmhand, Anne. They run an organic farm where calves are reared. 9 luxury tents are pitched in a quiet place on the farm. Comfortable beds, a wood stove, a private shower and toilet: you'll want for nothing. There's no Wi-Fi or electricity, so you can spend quality time together. Has the battery in your e-reader run out, just as you've reached an exciting chapter? You can recharge it at the farm shop. In the evening, relax by candlelight under the starry sky. During the day, you can experience real farm life, or discover the surrounding countryside. Now that's what you call a holiday, with a touch of farm life thrown in.
Be surrounded by animals
When you stay at Lange Weide farm, there are animals which ever way you look. Cows, goats, horses, donkeys, turkeys, cats and rabbits: they all live here. Lambs gambol about around Easter time, and you can help bottle feed them. For the rest of the year you can pet the various animals and, of course, help look after them. There are ample playing opportunities for the kids. The outdoor play area "Boeren Spetterpret", with sand and a water pump, will be a hit, for sure!
Stunning countryside just a stone's throw away
There is also much to do and see away from the farm. Go on a long hike, for example, across Dwingelderland National Park. Or, take a dip in the Blue Lake on a hot day. Keen to learn where the Lange Weide cows go once they have reached adulthood? If so, why not visit the dairy farm in Waspe. This farm is run by Farmer Rik's nephew, and the two work hand in hand. Returning to Lange Weide after a long day out? If so, unwind by your tent whilst enjoying a meal made with local produce!
