Escape to a simpler life with Margrete en Douwe

Discover this farm on the Frisian island of Ameland. This farm is a sheep and horse farm and a goose shelter. The tents have a beautiful view of the dike, dunes and the meadow where the sheep and horses graze. The Borsch family is happy to welcome you into their life on Ameland and the farm!

Experience it on Ameland

Rent bikes and discover the beautiful Ameland. Farmer Douwe will tell you how to get to the beach from the farm. Seen enough beaches? Take a relaxing walk in the woods or play golf. Visit the Maritime Centre, the shell bank, or book a seal tour. Your visit to Ameland is only complete after visiting the lighthouse and eating pancakes at the restaurant under the lighthouse.

What to do on Ameland Farm

Help the farmer feed the sheep and chickens. Learn about the birds and the environment of this island. The children can play to their heart's content on the farm, as there are several play areas, a trampoline and a sand pit. While the children play, you can relax. Smell the sea breeze, pick up some fresh vegetables from the honesty shop and fire up the barbecue. When the children have finished playing, it is time for a cosy evening together at your tent house. Take a shower with a beautiful view over the meadows and get into your comfy bed at the end of the day.

If you plan to come to Ameland by car, the ferry must be booked in advance. If you come without a car (and take the bus or rent a bike on the island), there is no problem. It is possible to rent bikes through the farmer, this can be arranged on the spot or in advance. If you let us know in time, farmer Douwe will make sure that the bikes are ready for you at the jetty in Nes and that your luggage is delivered to the farm.

One of the world's best family holidays


Pizza Night

The farmer will usually fire up the pizza oven during your stay. Everyone gathers round to tell their stories of the day’s adventures and invent pizza toppings you’ll never find on the high street



Ask the Farmer

The farm tour is a must if it’s on offer. But you don’t wait till then. The farmer will be delighted to tell you more about how what goes on at the farm at any time.

The Farm Shop

It’s great for the basics and usually even better for local produce and low food miles. And every Feather Down farm shop operates on an honesty basis.

Meet your hosts

Margrete and Douwe

Welcome to Ameland Farm! In the breeding season, I can familiarise you with the meadow birds and whatever else I know from nature. Or, come and feed the chickens and help out on the farm.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Dutch farmhouse!

We stayed for 3 nights and had a really wonderful time. Ameland is relaxed and tranquil with beautiful villages and stunning beaches. Our children loved looking at the animals and playing on the trampoline. I only wish we had stayed for a week.
