Escape to a simpler life with Daisy en Tom

Discover Hoeve de Betuwe in Dreumel, Gelderland. Tom and Daisy live on this organic farm together with their children and many animals. With a large number of dairy cows and fields full of pumpkin, maize, beans, sugar beets, and carrots, you will discover the real farm life here. From your tent, you have a beautiful view of the meadows.

Back in time: the wooden clogs

Take an extensive walking or cycling tour and discover what the Land of Maas and Waal has to offer! Nearby is the Three Dikes Point, where the Waaldijk, Maasdijk and Heerewaarden dikes meet. Crazy about fishing? This is also possible near the farm. Looking for a cosy terrace or museum? Go to Den Bosch or Nijmegen. Furthermore, there is a swimming pool in Dreumel, the gardens of Appeltern, indoor playground Wameland and the farmer's footpath Klompenpad runs along the farm. Still have some time left? Take a canoe up the Wetering river.

What to do at Hoeve de Betuwe

Take a walk with the alpacas; the farmer's wife will provide a route and a well-stocked picnic basket for you. Play football, jump on the trampoline or swing in the play barn, it's all possible here! Help take the cows out of the meadow, give the calves milk and help feed all the other farm animals. When you walk back to your tent, don't forget to visit the farm shop for fresh vegetables, directly from the land! After a full day, gather around the woodstove to cook together. Fresh vegetables, dining by candlelight, and at the end of the day, tired but satisfied, you step into your comfy bed.

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.
