Unwind in the company of animals

Experience ultimate outdoor living in the Lochem countryside in Gelderland. You'll be staying on a farm run by the Ligtenbarg family. They own a dairy farm with around 60 cows. But you'll find sheep, chickens, rabbits and an old pony on the farm too. 8 luxury tents are pitched in a quiet place on the farm. Two of these are pitched alongside the stream. 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 your e-reader battery run out, just as you have reached an exciting chapter? Simply pop into the farm shop to recharge it. In the evening, relax by candlelight under the starry sky. Or beside the campfire outside your tent. During the day, you can experience real farm life, or head out into nature. Now that's what you call a holiday, with a touch of farm life thrown in.

Splash & Play

The farm is situated on the water and has a private jetty. The stream is a delightful swimming spot (with aqua shoes) and ideal for canoeing too. You can hire a canoe on the farm. There is ample to see & do for young and old alike on this dairy farm with a milking robot. There is a play area for the kids that has, among others, a giant swing and sand pit with a water pump. Equally fun, is to gaze at the newborn calves and help feed them.


Why not hire a bike to discover the farm's surroundings? A day trip to nearby Zutphen is great fun too. You can buy staple groceries and farmhouse produce from the farm shop, such as cheese, veal and fresh milk. You'll find everything you need to cook a delicious evening meal in the spacious, fully-equipped kitchen block. It doesn't get better than enjoying a campfire meal by candlelight under a starry sky! But you can also do a spot of stargazing at the Phoenix Observatory. How to fill your day is entirely down to you, but rest assured, the farm is a delightful place to relax.
