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 explore what´s nearby then the ‘Green Heart’ of Holland has something for everyone. Discover the local area from delightful villages to major cities, and plenty of surrounding water for boating and fishing.

  • Water playground

For a bit of fun and some cooling off then you don’t need to go far! Right on the farm you will find the outdoor paddling pool where kids will run around and play for hours while you watch and enjoy. The water is only 50cm deep so it is also suitable for younger children.

  • Outdoor swimming in the polders

If you’d rather swim laps instead then why not go to the outdoor pool in Stolwijk? Just a short walk or cycle away there is a deep pool (25 meters in length) including two diving boards. There is also a shallow pool (29 meters in length) with a water slide. The paddling pool has a small fence surrounding it for safety.
