About this accommodation

Spend the night in a unique and atmospheric shepherd's wagon, after the age-old tradition of the wandering English shepherds who roamed the hills of England with their flocks. With one big difference: this wagon has been designed to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. With its own bathroom, kitchen and underfloor heating, you will lack absolutely nothing.

Authentic details such as the curved wooden ceiling and the raised bedstead convey a sense of security. The four sturdy metal wheels were handmade by the blacksmith from the neighboring village and drove the wagon to its current location: in the middle of a beautiful park garden, overlooking the natural pond where you can enjoy the funny ducks Geer and Goor. Settle down in one of the chairs or benches, grab a book and sink into the hammock or peer over the surrounding fields to spot deer and hares. In summer, you can share stories (and marshmallows) by the fire pit and then when you walk back to the wagon, you will be amazed by the overwhelming number of stars in a perfectly black sky.

Nature and environment
During your stay in the wagon, you are in the middle of the landscape of the Drents Friese Wold. Large oak trees line the roads that meander past varied nature reserves, authentic farms and old villages. Sandy paths are waiting to be discovered. The gently rolling landscape contains forests, heathland, sandy plains and numerous mysterious pingo ruins. The owners are happy to tell you where you can spot the many badger setts during your cycling or hiking tour, or which routes are best for touring by car.

Would you rather spend a day exploring culture? The cities of Leeuwarden and Groningen are a stone's throw away and offer unique stores, cozy cafes and inviting museums and theaters.

For a cultural experience, you do not necessarily have to leave the grounds, though! The door of the studio in the park garden is always open. Feel free to walk in and find out about the current projects or become part of them yourself through, for example, the exchange of knowledge or workshops.

Additional house rules:
This text has been machine translatedView original text
  • Between 10 p.m. & 8 a.m. please be quiet. Gazing silently at the night sky is never a problem, but loud music or loud conversations are not intended during that time slot.
  • If you feel the need to light a cigarette for a moment, this is not a problem as long as you keep your distance from the car. We understand the attraction of sitting on the steps, but please walk over to the picnic table or fire pit.
  • The shepherds hut is shoe-free. This is not only nice for you as guests, but also for the preservation of the wagon.
  • Your four-legged friend along for the trip? There are additional charges.
  • Energy surcharge: We find it very normal that you have a nice and comfortable time during your stay, but due to rising energy prices, we are forced to introduce a consumption cap. Therefore, in case of above average energy consumption (more than 5 kWh per day) we will ask you for an additional fee at the current E-rate of our energy supplier (to be paid afterwards).
  • Tussen 22:00 uur & 08:00 uur graag rustig. Stilletjes naar de sterrenhemel turen is nooit een probleem, maar luide muziek of harde gesprekken zijn in dat tijdsvak niet de bedoeling.
  • Als je de behoefte voelt om even een sigaret op te steken, dan is dit geen probleem zolang je afstand neemt van de wagen. We snappen dat het aantrekkelijk is om op het trappetje te zitten, maar loop toch even door naar de picknicktafel of de vuurplaats.
  • De pipowagen is schoen-vrij. Dit is niet alleen voor jullie als gasten fijn, maar ook voor het behoud van de wagen.
  • Je viervoeter mee op reis? Er zijn extra kosten aan verbonden.
  • Energietoeslag: We vinden het heel normaal dat je het tijdens je verblijf fijn en comfortabel hebt, maar vanwege de stijgende energieprijzen zien we ons wel genoodzaakt om een verbruiksplafond te introduceren. Daarom vragen we je bij een bovengemiddeld energieverbruik (meer dan 5 kWh per dag) om een extra vergoeding tegen het actuele E-tarief van onze energieleverancier (na afloop te betalen).

  • Direct cancellation within 24 hours, subject to an administration fee
  • 50% of the price refunded up to 43 days before the check-in date
  • 10% of the price refunded from 43 days before the check-in date
