Motorhoming in Holland | A ‘Back to Nature’ Experience at Camping de Wildhoeve
If you can catch Holland’s Camping de Wildhoeve on a sunny spring day you’ll be reminded instantly of ‘mother nature’ in all its glory…..From the ever present birdsong to the carefully landscaped campsite interwoven into the Gortelsche Forest that surrounds it…. it’s full of calm tranquil pitches, blue sky and acres of forest to explore by bike. It’s the perfect chance to reconnect with a more natural camping experience
Perhaps that’s part of the reason why it holds the coveted ‘Green Key‘ that shows just how committed they are to sustainable tourism. They go a step further than the normal laws and regulations require and we reckon that’s reason enough to support a campsite that owes much of it’s beauty to the environment it sits in…. plus it’s also offered a perfect ‘road schooling opportunity to discuss environmental geography with the girls (see more on our road schooling here)
So how would you describe Camping de Wildhoeve
Whilst evenings have been spent in the quiet but fantastically equipped indoor swimming pool…. complete with jacuzzi seats, child’s slides and a ‘disco lit’ indoor water slide . Perhaps the biggest success was the water slide with both girls vying to complete the slide, press the buzzer and record a new family record time down the slide…
- The campsite’s excellent wifi consumed almost 20,000,000 MB last year!!
- The record water slide score was 9.3 (Lottie managed an impressive 9.9)
- Over 5,000 chocolate croissants from the onsite bakery were eagerly gobbled up last year
- The campsite could fit over 24 football fields in it!
Talking of European Adventures….
Look at those happy smiling faces, do you think we enjoyed it!!!
- Cannenburch Castle – we may have seen the Chateaus of the Loire, but we didn’t know Holland’s stately homes/estates could match them… especially this one! (15mins bike ride away)
- Holland’s Hanseatic Towns – most notably our favourite (Doesburg – 50min away) but also including Deventer, Zwolle, Hasselt, Zutphen
- Arnhem Bridge – for those who’ve followed our trips to the WW1 sites in Belgium, or to Berlin’s Cold War historic sites… then Holland’s liberation and museum is a must (45mins away)
Whilst those looking for pretty, scenic cycling routes could do much worse than head for Speulderbos Forest (46km), Liemers (49km)…
