Escape to a simpler life with Jolanda and Gerben

Discover De Zeekraal in Terschelling. On this dairy farm there are 250 Friesian milking sheep under the care of Jolanda and farmer Gerben. They are happy to show you how they milk these sheep every day. Your tent is located at the edge of the farm, with a view of the meadows where the sheep graze.

The island feeling

Fancy a day out? Not far from De Zeekraal is a special place, the vast Boschplaat nature reserve. A wonderful place for a stroll! West-Terschelling, with its famous Brandaris, is also worth a visit. You can make several fishing- and boat trips here! Of course a relaxing day at the beach is also possible.

What to do on De Zeekral

Watch Jolanda and Gerben make cheese and ice cream from the sheep’s milk! Do crafts, read or play a game. A trip to the honesty shop is a must on this farm. Get typical Terschelling products like cranberries and delicious Wadden mustard, but also the homemade sheep cheese and ice cream made by the farmers. Sit down with your ice cream in front of your tent and enjoy the fresh sea breeze. Cook outside on the wood stove, roast some marshmallows for dessert and dive into your comfy bed after a day full of island adventures. This is pure enjoyment!

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.

Meet your hosts

Jolanda and Gerben

We keep hundreds of sheep on our farm, we all make delicious products from the milk. We have set up the barn in such a way that everyone can see how we milk the sheep.

De Zeekraal on Terschelling is a super place for spending some days with Children. A lot of things to see and do. The beach with the majestic dunes is just beautiful. There are always shells waiting to be collected. Jolanda and Gerben are so nice and welcoming hosts. And they are extremly nice with children. A helping hand on the farm was always appreciated. Their shop is definitely worth a visit and also nice for a cup of Cappucino or sheep milk icecream. There is also a corner for crafting with the kids, if the weather isn't so good. We enjoyed every minute and will definitely come back!!

Wonderful break away with the family. The children loved the freedom to roam the farm and dive in and out of the beautiful tents. They enjoyed the huge sandpit with the big diggers and enjoyed checking to see if the hens had laid an egg. The ice creams made on the farm were delicious, the hosts were super friendly and the atmosphere was so relaxed. We found a little slice of heaven in Oosterend Terschelling and we can't wait to go back.
