Escape to a simpler life with Thea en Wouter

Discover Landgoed Volenbeek in Ermelo, Gelderland. This dairy farm has about 50 cows, which are taken care of daily by farmer Wouter, Thea and their children with great pleasure. Your tent is located on a beautiful spot, with a forest at the back and a view of the meadow in front, where the cows often graze. So you stand eye to eye with the cows while you sit in front of your tent having breakfast or relaxing in the hot tub (can be booked as an extra).

Away from the farm? The choice is endless!

Rent a bike and discover the greenery! This is also the right place for a day out, with nearby tourist attractions such as the Kröller Müller Museum, Walibi, the Dolfinarium and De Hoge Veluwe National Park. You can sniff up a little bit of culture in the beautiful towns of Harderwijk and Elburg.

What to do on Landgoed Volenbeek

Walking through the woods, building huts and climbing trees, it is all possible here! The children can play in the woods or help farmer Wouter take care of the cows. You certainly do not have to get bored, fire up the woodstove, get fresh vegetables from the honesty shop and make a tasty soup on the open fire. When the children have finished playing, you can enjoy each other's company and the delicious fresh soup you just made. Don't forget to take a walk in the forest with an alpaca before you go home!

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.

We had a great time glamping on the farm! Despite the rain we were warm and comfortable in our tent with all the frills - hot tub and hot shower. Our children loved being able to play with all the rabbits, guinea pigs and find eggs. There was even a playground and lots of trikes, go carts and things for them to play with. The tent was clean, well stocked and lots of fun cooking on a wood burning stove. Would definitely recommend this farm for a glamping experience!

Excellent holiday. Would highly recommend a holiday in The Netherlands. Thea spoke good English and the farm was brilliant. My 9 year old daughter loved watching the milking and then feeding the calves herself. My 11 year old son was in heaven playing on the go karts and collecting wood for the stove in the trailer. My Husband really enjoyed making making the fires to heat stove, hot tub and shower. Would highly recommend the with frills option, it really added to the holiday. Best of all, it got the children and us off all electronic gadgets and we talked, played games and did puzzle books together, what a wonderful time! The Netherlands is great for cycling, many proper cycle routes, the UK has a lot to learn. We cycled to the inland lakes and to a great indoor/outdoor pool with slides. Even though it's quite a drive, about 4 hours from Calais, we combined it with a holiday at eurocamp in The Netherlands which made the drive barely noticeable. The farm was a wonderful tonic after Eurocamp!!. The tent was fabulous, warm and very dry. It felt very luxurious and it was no problem not having electricity.
