Information

About Hoeve Waterschap farm:

Along the Pieter Christiaan canal and a short distance from Lemmer is the 150 year old, monumental Frisian farmhouse of Hoeve Waterschap. Built as one of the first farms after the reclamation of the peat polder. Hoeve Waterschap is still a bustling center of activity.

Activities on the farm:

The active dairy farm contains nearly 100 cows in the summer grazing in the meadows around. It’s also possible if you fancy a relaxing afternoon in the hot tub, a swim in the canal or the luxury of a fresh breakfast in your tent.

At the farm you will find a “children-zoo”: sheep, rabbits, cuddle-chicken (get up early to get some fresh eggs) and goats roam freely in the enclosure. There are 3 goats which were bottle fed and are therefore very friendly and love to be taken for a walk. Children will spend ages in the zoo. Another favourite activity for children is swimming in the nearby river Tjonger or in the Tjeukermeer (meer=lake). The village Echtenerbrug is a great place to go for a drink and watch the boats going past.

Explore the area:

This classic stolp(bell jar) farm is owned by the Diever family and lies in the heart of the Echtenerveenpolder. It sits in an area of outstanding natural beauty called the Veen-weidegebieden. This used to be a peat-cutting district and consequently the landscape is criss-crossed with waterways, ditches and lakes.

NEW: Since recently, Hoeve Waterschap has two electric sloops available which can be rented with the use of a handy app. Ideal for a lovely day trip to discover the surrounding area!

The farm was built by the once important Dutch Waterways as a co-operative farm for all the cattle and sheep that graze amongst the sur-rounding dykes. So there is plenty of water nearby the farm to enjoy, at 150 yards you find the waterway “Pier Christiaanvaart” which is connected with the beautiful frisian lakes. A meadow separates the waterway from the farm, so adventurous children can still play safely on the Friesland, Netherlands, glamping farm holiday.
