Information

About Hof Keppel farm:

In the middle of Hochsauerland, located at an altitude of about 440 metres in a beautiful secluded site surrounded by meadows and woods, is Hof Keppel. The nearest town is Schmallenberg, which can be reached after a 10 km drive. Winterberg is 25 km away and Willingen, 50 km.

The farmhouse of the Schauerte family was built in 1890 in the Tudor style. A special feature is the bronze bell on the gable of the farmhouse! Which has been rung for more than 100 years, twice a day by hand.

Activities on the farm:

Treat yourself to a special highlight at Hof Keppel by taking a soak in their hot tub!  Available as of 24.09.2018. There is nothing better than relaxing in the tub while admiring the breathtaking starry sky.

Frank and Hanna Schauerte live with their children Anton, Greta and Henri, and Frank’s parents Hubertus and Elisabeth Schauerte. The pasture is right there with cows that from April / May can decide for themselves whether they are going to pasture both day and night or whether they want to stay in the stable. Snickers the pony enjoys the visits children pay to him. For younger guests, there is a playground, a petting zoo and a straw corner. The location of the Log Cabins offers a fantastic view. A stay at the Log Cabins in winter is an amazing holiday in a place that stands up to the climate to return to each evening. Skis can be accommodated comfortably in the farm in the ski room, where there is a boots dryer.

Explore the area:

The Schmallenberg Sauerland has a lot to offer. In addition to the idyllic hiking trailsArpetal, 2 km from the farm and Rothaarsteig, 10 km away – there are in Schmallenberg, a climbing hall, the Thikos Kinderland and an outdoor pool. A very special experience is promised at Europe’s largest open-air theater 15 km away at Elspe at the yearly Karl-Mai Festival. Winter sports are especially big in the Hochsauerland region. In the Sauerland winter sports arena are 25 ski lifts, cross-country trails, a skating rink and available toboggan runs.
