Escape to a simpler life with Henk en Margriet

Discover Het Wesselink in Salland in Deventer, Overijssel. This dairy farm has about 60 cows that can choose when they are milked by the milk robot, whether they go outside or prefer to stay inside. Margriet and farmer Henk are happy to take you along into their life on the farm. Your tent is located at the edge of the forest, with an open view at the front over the meadow where the cows often graze.

Water meadows, wooded hillside and beautiful countryside

In the middle of the holiday region Salland, between National Park De Hoge Veluwe and National Park de Sallandse Heuvelrug. Put on your running shoes and walk through the woods behind the farm. Buy Salland asparagus directly from the land in April, May or June. Nearby is also the cosy city of Deventer, where you can enjoy a terrace or visit a museum.

What to do at Het Wesselink

When you wake up in the morning in your comfy bed, take a look outside! With a bit of luck you will see deer walking through the meadow. Pick up fresh eggs from the henhouse and cook it on the woodstove and that makes a good start of the day! Walk with farmer Henk into the barn and he will show you how the milking robot works. Many calves are born here, so you can help out and bottle feed them! Go-kart through the forest behind the tent, build a hut or swing on the giant swing. There is an animal pasture with sheep, a meadow with ponies that you can groom and a cuddly barn full of rabbits.

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.

A fantastic, relaxing experience where we were able to relax and unwind without any distractions. Brilliant for the children to make friends, explore and have a level of freedom too.

Our experience was amazing, we enjoyed every minute of our holiday including the location, the farmers, the farm, the tents. Our two children both cried the morning of our departure - I think they would have stayed forever.
