Information

About Hoeve Meskenwier farm:

Just outside the picturesque village of Akkrum, Hoeve Meskenwier is a classic Friesian “headlong hull” farm along the river Boarn. Complete with private dock and boat rental, this is the perfect glamping location for a weekend boating on Friesland, Netherlands. Hoeve Meskenwier comes from the Friesian word “Meskenwier” meaning the land that floods in winter and knoll or hill. This 200-year-old farm is situated on such a knoll on the banks of a small river called the Boarn, a tributary of the old Middelzee that used to flow into the heart of Friesland. The knoll used to house a Friesian castle, a so-called “Stinz”. Tette, the farmer here, can tell you the story of how this Stinz disappeared …

Activities on the farm:

From the farm, where some 50 calves are kept, you have a panoramic view. There is also plenty of room for the kids to roam around. The little ones can help the farmer looking after the calves or seek a fresh egg. Go ahead and fill the tub full of water to enjoy the sunset from the hot tub.

Hoeve Meskenwier is built in a typical Friesian style known here as a “head, neck and body” farm. The head was traditionally used for cheese and butter making but due to the lack of refrigeration at the time, always faced north. The neck housed the living quarters and the body would have been used for sheltering the cattle and storing the supplies.

Corn is also grown at Hoeve Meskenwier: in the summer it grows up to 2 metres high. You can walk through the cornfields at any time of the day and you might come across deer and other animals that are looking for food and shelter there. The farmland is surrounded by the Boarn river, and there is a splendid circular walk from the tent area along the river. For children there is more than enough to do on and around the farmyard; cuddling the rabbits, the goats, and the ponies. Relaxation, space, adventure, and hospitality are the keywords that will remind you of your holiday at Meskenwier.

Hoeve Meskenwier

Explore the area:

The farmland stretches to, and is surrounded by, the small river called Oede Boarn. This river is the connection waterway between the surrounding lakes and the villages on its banks such as Grou, Terhorne, Goingarijp, Joure, and Sneek. These lakes and villages offer a host of hospitable inns & pubs. There are many activities too both in the villages and on the lakes and waterways which are very typical for this part of Holland. For those wanting to explore the farm’s surroundings by bike, depending on availability it is possible to hire bicycles free of charge during your stay.
