Staying in Friesland

Experience ultimate outdoor living in the Akkrum countryside in Friesland. Hoeve Meskenwier is a 240 years old farm. Tette and Jantsje Hofstra are raising calves here. A few tents are pitched in a quiet place on the farm. Comfortable beds, a wood stove, a private shower and toilet: it has it all. There's no Wi-Fi or electricity, so you can spend quality time together. Has your e-reader battery run out, just as you have 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 a holiday with a touch of farm life.

Plenty of water fun and water sports

Hoeve Meskenwier is located in the idyllic Frisian countryside, on the river Boarn. This makes it the perfect base for lovely boat trips and lots of water fun. You can use the farm canoe for free, or bring your own boat. You can moor it at the special quay. You can also fish in the harbour. Of course, if you've had enough of all the water, there are lots of things to do on the farm. Help the farmer feed the calves. Kids can also pet the pony, goats and rabbits, or play on the large playing field!

Discover the Frisian countryside

The surroundings of Hoeve Meskenwier are ideal for long bicycle rides. Bicycles are available on the Hoeve. The beautiful Pontjesroute is highly recommended. For the children, a trip to Chameleon Island is always a winner. The boat trip to the island alone is an adventure in itself. On the island, children can indulge in the mud, climb trees and conquer the swamp. If you come back to the farm after a tiring but fun-filled day, you'll be ready to enjoy a delicious meal. Lovely to end the day at the wood stove!
