Escape to a simpler life with Tette en Jantsje

Discover Hoeve Meskenwier in the Frisian town of Akkrum. Surrounded by water, your tents have a beautiful view of the meadows. Tette and Jantsje will make sure that everything goes well at this traditional Ducth farm. The calves can walk freely around here and need to eat well so that they can grow into mature cows. Come and help out!

Something for everyone

The bikes at the farm are always ready for you! How about a day at the National Park De Alde Faenen or the nature reserve De Deelen? Kameleon Island, a fun adventure park for children, is also close by! Would you like to go a bit further? A day on Ameland or one of the other Wadden Islands are easy to reach. A rainy day? Then the swimming paradise and Planetarium are nearby!

What to do on Hoeve Meskenwier

Go boating, swimming, grab a fishing rod or go canoeing. You can even bring your own boat to Hoeve Meskenwier! Finished splashing around? In the barn, you can cuddle the goats and rabbits to your heart's content or groom the pony. Walk from your tent through the meadow to the river where you have direct access to the Frisian Lakes. A day on and around the water will tire you out, which is good because you can end the day relaxing in your tent. Cook on a wood fire, play a game at the table and really have time for each other. After all your adventures, you will surely sleep well in your comfy bed.

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.

Tette and Jantsje

Just outside the village Akkrum is our farm along the River Boarn. Complete with its own harbour basin, and boat rentals around the corner, this is the perfect place for wonderful trips. We hope you will enjoy the environment and our farm and hope to see you soon!

From our farm, you have direct access to the Frisian lakes. Will you also come canoeing?
