Escape to a simpler life with Rik en Marian

Discover De Lange Weide in Dwingeloo, Drenthe. This organic farm raises cows. Farmer Rik takes care of the young cows and farmer Marian of all the other animals. With many cows, four horses, two ponies and many more animals, there is always plenty to do here. The tent houses are spread over the grounds between the trees in the Drenthe countryside!

The greenest village in Europe!

The village of Dwingeloo is one of the best-preserved Brinkdorpen (stone villages) in the north of the Netherlands and was elected the greenest village in Europe in 2012! The surroundings have beautiful landscapes with lots of nature and recreational facilities such as the National Park Dwingelderveld. In the middle of the woods, about 2 km from the farm, you will find Het Blauwe Meer, a recreation park managed by Natuurmonumenten, where you can swim during the season. In short: come and enjoy and relax in Drenthe!

What to do on De Lange Weide

Crazy about horses? A few times a week, the horse girls are at the farm to make a ride with the lovers! On this farm, nothing is compulsory, everything is possible: order fresh bread, a pancake cooking crate or a campfire cart from the farm shop and enjoy it at your tent house. Book a hot tub next to your tent house and really relax. Get out of your comfy bed in the morning, fetch an egg from the henhouse and bake a fresh omelette on the woodstove. This is really pure enjoyment in Drenthe!

Going without electricity is our greatest luxury

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.

Marian and Rick

Kids playing, kids sharing. Messing with sand and water is certainly one way. Being a child is the key factor at Dwingeloo: splashing, pumping water and shoveling is all possible here! We hope to meet you soon.

Echt weer een heerlijke week gehad het lijkt ieder jaar leuker te worden. (Rik en Marjan jullie zijn toppers)(Hans Verbraeken) Ik vond het weer een super leuke vakantie, ik wou dat we meer vakantie hadden zodat we nog veel meer naar jullie boerderij zouden komen. (Zeb Verbraeken) Ik vond het heel leuk bij de boerderij, ik vond het leuk dat ik de dieren mochten verzorgen. (Jet Verbraeken) Ik vond het weer hartstikke leuk, ik vind boer Rik en boerin Marian heel aardig ik vond het jammer dat we weer weg moesten. (Fay Verbraeken)
