Glamping in Belgium at Featherdown Farm, Hoeve den Overdraght Collection, the farm of Filip and Ann Louwagie – Decrock, is located in West Flanders, Belgium, only about 30 miles from Dunkirk. This farm is far from ordinary, having nine breeds of special and rare sheep grazing the meadows!
The farm, with it’s distinctive Flemish roof, was built around 1850 and has been part of the landscape for many years. The sons and daughter, Victor, Ernest and Louise are now the third generation of the Louwagie family helping to run the farm. The farm has built up so much, with their own farm wool production, their Holstein cows, and the eye they have for for rare and special breeds of sheep, that it’s is something worth sharing.
A great deal has been done on the farm to give visitors an insight into interesting areas such as farm crafts and care for the environment and landscape. The renovated cowshed has proven to be ideal for use as an agricultural education space for exhibiting wool processing techniques and machines, and for hosting workshops.
Autumn is a busy time as it’s the mating season (145 days), after which, the lambs are born. There are always some lambs the farmer will raise with a bottle, a task which the farmer can do with some help with. Children love to get close and feed the lambs. Whatever the season, visitors to the farm will be able to meet the animals in the meadows and find out about sheep that are rarely seen these days.
