Nearby the Weerribben lakes and the Havelte forests and with 3 national parks within a 25km radius is this active dairy farm. Fifteen minutes away by bike is the stunning canal-filled village of Giethoorn, while the Kalverweide itself has panoramic views of glistening fields from the tents. You will spend your night in The Canvas Lodge – hot tub is optional.
A voluntary milking mechanism allows the 140 cows to decide themselves when to be milked. There are also sheep, plus over 100 young cows and calves to feed, some of them needing to be fed by hand. Kids can ride ponies Fiona and Samira, take a horse and cart ride or donkeys Lucky and Laylano for a walk. And there are pigs that love leftovers plus a Shetland pony with a high voice! Just down the road is the charming and fun Indonesian garden zoo for even more cute animals.
As part of the Feather Down concept, there is no electricity or WiFi in the cosy accommodations. Candles and oil lamps provide a warm light and a rustic wood stove is available for cooking. Each accommodation has quality bedding, an equipped kitchen, a toilet, a dining area and a barbecue. Dogs are allowed in this location.
