Escape to a simpler life with Cor and Anja

Discover Hoeve de Pippert in Betuwe in the province of Gelderland, Ophemert. This large-scale dairy farm has about 180 cows and 130 cattle. Cor and Anja could use your help with feeding the calves! The tent house is beautifully located with a view of the cows grazing on the meadow.

Come along on the tractor!

The farmer will be more than happy to take you with him on a tractor ride and this ride ends in a nature reserve by the Steendert accompanied with a picnic. The area has many beautiful trails for strolling, cycling and walking. Do you want more action? You can take great canoe trips on the Linge river. Next to the farm is the Maria forest, where exciting explorations and huts can be made. The Betuwe is a versatile area where cultural history, nostalgia and water recreation go hand in hand. Do you prefer city activities? Then take a stroll through historic places such as Tiel or Culemborg.

What to do on Hoeve de Pippert in Betuwe

Take a peek into the cuddle barn, take care of the goat and groom the horse. Want to jump and frolic? You can do this in the swinging barn! Cosy family weekend? There is a group tent where you can sit together around the open fire and share exciting stories. In the honesty shop you will find delicious home-made cheese, veal and fresh milk. Cook on the wood stove, light up the tent and sleep in comfy beds, what more could you ask for!

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.

Very relaxing and the children loved living on the farm for a few days. We had a lovely welcome and were made to feel very at home. We didn't want to leave!

We had the most wonderful family holiday on Cor and Anja's farm. I'm going to be recommending it to all my friends and family! We were charmed by the canvas lodge (we had one with a hot tub) - my husband really engaged with and enjoyed the wood burning stoves and got it down to a fine art in terms of lighting the one inside the tent before the rest of us were even awake; the outdoor one in time for supper and the hot tub one throughout the day for a fabulous soak in the evening. My children (3 & 8 years) loved this holiday more than our previous week at CenterParcs. We certainly hope to return and stay for longer next time. My husband and I loved Pizza Night, when all the campers who wanted to joined in, made pizzas and ate together.

Great fun if you love glamping, always a great experience. Be prepared to chop lots of wood and make lots of log fires for cooking and the hot tub. Plenty to do on the farm, go karts, rope swings and general chilling.

From the moment we met Anja and Cor as we first arrived to when we left we had the most amazing holiday. We were made to feel so welcome on the farm, we were free to explore and felt completely at home. Our two children Molly and Harry loved visiting the calves and the cows in the milking shed, they thought the go-carts were amazing and enjoyed feeding the free-range chickens. _x000D_ _x000D_ Thank you very much to Anja and Cor

We had a magical stay on a truly working farm, free from modern distractions. Just us, the landscape and the farm. We all learnt something new every hour of our waking day.
