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-Holland province then we recommend a trip to Wadden Sea or the IJsselmeer. Seal watching or a day trip to Texel are also great choices and don’t forget – if you bring your own horse – then why not go for a hack along one of the wonderful nearby beaches?
