Not a moment’s boredom!Not a moment’s boredom!

Watching other families enjoy themselves here shows us how few leave the farm since there is so much to see and do. Here the kids are in their element and don’t have time to get bored! That´s why the parents are having a great time too.

But if you do want to discover the local environment in the North Limburg province, home to stunning natural beauty like the De Groote Peel National Park and the river Maas, then you won’t be disappointed. Dotted along the river are pretty little fortified villages or you could visit towns like Venlo, Roermond and Weert which are all within a 20 minute drive. If you need to pick up a few bits and pieces then Panningen is but a few kilometers from the farm.
