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-Brabant province then we recommend a trip to the Loonse and Drunense dunes which are a short walk away and dotted with delightful restaurants along the way like De Roestelberg, Het Genieten or Duinlust. Visit any one of the lovely villages and towns in Brabant and enjoy a drink on their terrace, or take a day trip to the Efteling – not even a full kilometer away from the farm! Something for everyone!
