Escape to a simpler life with Jennie en Frits

Discover Hoeve Meijer in Otterlo, Gelderland. You will certainly enjoy yourself here because Jenny and Frits like to pamper their guests. At this dairy farm you will discover an authentic farm life! In the morning and in the evening the cows are milked from the milking machines and the farmer will be very happy if you help feed the cows. The tents are located at the edge of the farm, most of them with a view of the cows in the meadow.

Dive into nature

Near Otterlo is the Kröller Müller museum and the entrance to the Hoge Veluwe National Park, a place ideal for cyclists and walkers! Want to take a dive? Three kilometres away there is a lake and in the woods near Lunteren there is a forest pool. Via the local road you can easily reach the Apenheul, Burgers' Zoo, the Dutch Open Air Museum or the Julianatoren playground.

What to do on Hoeve Meijer

The two happy pigs will be running to you when you have something for them to eat. Cuddle with the rabbits, guinea pigs, or newborn kittens in the cuddle barn. Go for a race with the go-kart, jump on the trampoline or play in the sandbox. Farmer Frits likes to take a ride on the tractor or teach you all about the guinea pigs he breeds. Get a game or a book from the honesty shop and relax in your lounge chair in front of your tent. After a busy day of farm adventures, enjoy the last rays of sunshine together. Crawl into your comfy bed and wake up to the rooster crowing.

One of the world's best family holidays


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.

Ms McHugh


A wonderful time spent at the farm. Children loved every minute. Will definitely look to return. Hosts were fantastic.


Mrs. Briggs-Harris


We had such a brilliant time. The couple hosting are so warm and friendly, and went out of their way to help. The tent was really clean. The shower rooms are immaculate, warm, and there are hot and powerful showers - and no annoying push button system! We could see the children (3.5 & 15m) wandering off and playing from our tent, and it was great to let them have some freedom. My son now has a better understanding of where eggs and milk come from and enjoyed thanking the chickens and cows. There are lots of guinea pigs and a couple of big pigs too. The go karts were a particular hit with our son, as were the little wheelbarrows for collecting logs. Our first Feather Down holiday - and we will book this place again. We can't imagine a more perfect farm exists.


Mr. Reinders


It was excellent. Farmers Frits and Jenny are very kind and are doing anything to give their hosts a pleasant stay.


Mrs. Spencer


Frits and Jennie made us very welcome and were so hospitable. All the facilities were excellent and immaculate. The shop was well stocked and there was so much for the children to do. Thank you for a wonderful holiday and many happy memories.


Mrs. Babbs
