Escape to a simpler life with Lilian en Jos

Discover Mariahout in de Hei in the North-Brabant village of Mariahout. You will certainly enjoy this alpaca farm, because who isn't crazy about these cute animals! Jos and Lilian will give you a warm welcome here. The tent has a view of the forest that is popularly called 't Hertenkamp. Pay attention, because you will regularly see deer hopping through the meadows! Between the tents are the animal pasture with sheep, goats and alpacas.

Discover North Brabant

A hot summer day? You can visit Strandbad Enode in Nuenen in no time. For more adventure, recreation park Billy Bird Park Hemelrijk, the Efteling and Beekse are also nearby. In the village of Nuenen you will find the Vincentre museum about Vincent van Gogh with its walking and cycling routes. Go fishing at the fishpond in Lieshout or in the Wilhelminakanaal. Fancy a drink or an afternoon of shopping? Go to Eindhoven, 's-Hertogenbosch or Helmond. You can also ride a pony near the farm and have a nice walk in the surrounding forests.

What to do on Mariahout in de Hei

Will you choose an alpaca walk or a meet and feed an alpaca? Here, you can learn everything about alpacas and their special wool! The children can play in the sand house or take care of ponies Zita and Neja. Every morning, Farmer Jos will feed the animals, if you’d like, you can help him too! You can go for a ride in a tractor with a covered wagon or take a picnic basket with you. Get some goodies in the honesty shop and light up the wood fire in advance, because cooking here is done on the wood stove. After a day full of alpaca adventures, it is time to get into your comfy bed.
