Spend an amazing family holiday in the Netherlands on a farm with Feather Down. Here, you can enjoy your stay in a fully equipped tent with all the modern comforts, while maintaining the warm atmosphere of the campsite. Fashionable camping, which is gaining popularity, is known as glamping!
Enjoy the oasis of peace, space, and nature around Lake Tjeukemeer. This region is located in the northwest of the province of Friesland. Around the largest lake in Friesland, you will find De Lemster Polders, the Veenpolder van Echten, the Veenpolder van Delfstrahuizen. Lake Tjeukemeer is connected to the rivers and canals in Southeast Friesland and the lakes in Northwest Overijssel. In addition, both the Frisian Lake District and the IJsselmeer are easily and quickly accessible. The Tjeukemeer itself offers excellent opportunities for sailing, surfing, swimming, and fishing. Along the banks lie marinas, beaches and of course our glamping farm Hoeve Waterschap! You will also find the charming villages of Lemmer and Sneek in this region. Or visit Leeuwarden to shop, climb the "Oldenhove" tower or visit the Natuurmuseum Fryslân.
Hoeve Waterschap is located in a beautiful wide area between Tjeukemeer and Weerribben. This farm is completely focused on the children's experience. The barn is furnished as a petting zoo with goats, rabbits and guinea pigs. Here the children can play and cuddle with the animals. Boer Gert is a fan of the Frisian sheep breed black blaze. These beautiful sheep get lambs in the spring and walk in the animal meadow in front of your tent. In addition to the animal meadow with the lovely goats and chickens, there are a swing, slide, sandpit, playhouses and a football field for the children. The lodges are in spacious places, each with its own path and a view of the meadows. You can also rent a boat yourself or take it with you!
