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 and what Drenthe has to offer then don’t forget that you can go for a walk in the forest to hunt and gather wood for the campfire right on your tent’s doorstep! De Bosrand is located in the heart of Drenthe with nearby attractions like Hunebedcentrum, Boomkroonpad and Kabouterland
