Escape to a simpler life with Femmie en Goos

Discover De Kalverweide in Kallenkote, Overijssel. This cosy dairy farm is run by farmer Goos, Femmie and their children Robert-Jan, Jalien and Femke. This authentic farm raises more than 100 cows that are milked daily by the automatic milking robot. Your tent is next to the meadow, so you can see the cows up close!

Boots off, walking shoes on!

Dive into nature and discover De Weerribben nature reserve, Dwingelderveld national park or Het Drentsch-Friese Wold nature reserve. Walking tip: take the route De Woldberg of 8.4 km, climb the tower and visit 3 provinces in 1 day! If you are in the mood for a tourist attraction, plan a day in Giethoorn, or the "Venice of the North": rent a boat or canoe and discover why this village is so popular among tourists.

What to do on De Kalverweide

De Kalverweide is home to many different animals: little lambs, cuddly pig Lapje, little rabbits, chickens, piglets... too many to mention! After a busy day on the farm, it is time for a drink, visit the honesty shop and treat yourself to some delicious home-made Kalverweide cheese. Cook on the wood stove, enjoy the view of the meadow and make a campfire next to your tent. In the evening, crawl into your comfy bed.

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.

Options during your stay


Bring your dog along. A maximum of 2 well-behaved dogs per canvas hideaway. The price is per dog, per stay.

Please note: You are required to keep your dog on a leash while on the campsite.

Wij hebben een heerlijk verblijf gehad. Goos, Femmie en de kids hebben ons heel gastvrij en enthousiast onthaald. Er is veel te doen op deze boerderij, we voelden ons vanaf de eerste minuut helemaal thuis!
