From experience we know that it is unlikely you’ll even leave the farm, simply because the children are having so much fun. And let’s face it: that’s when you can start to relax and enjoy being on holiday too.

If you do want to discover the area, then Walcheren (which is the name of the Island you are on) offers everything you may need. Most famously known for its seaside resorts and fine beaches, there are also lovely places to visit like Middelburg, the lakeside town of Veere and Vlissingen. Perfect family days out with kids in tow!
