Escape to a simpler life with Marisca en Anton

Discover TaarTenTuin in Aarlanderveen, South Holland. At this special farm in the middle of the Green Heart, it seems as if time has stood still for a while. Anton and Marisca take great pleasure in looking after their farm animals here every day. The tents are located at the edge of the field and have a wonderful view of the water.

Surrounded by water

Hire a boat or canoe and go on the water. Spot birds such as the reed warbler and the moustache. Go fishing, cycling and walking along the flowery banks. The farm is 4 meters below the Normal Amsterdam Level and the body of water is drained by the only working four-mill windmill in the world, so a visit to one of these mills is not to be missed! Have more time to spare? Visit De Vooruitgang farm; a play paradise for children.

What to do on TaarTenTuin

Roll out of your comfy bed and start the day with a cup of coffee in the inn! On your way back, walk past the chicken coop and collect fresh eggs. Start the wood stove, fry an egg and enjoy a delicious breakfast together. After this quiet start it is time to put on your boots! Help farmer Anton feed the animals and in spring there are even lambs! You can ride a pony at the neighbouring riding school. The children can frolic around, float in a rowing boat or jump in a ditch. End the day together around the campfire.

One of the world's best family holidays


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.
