Glamping in Holland at Featherdown Farms, Hoeve Meijer is an authentic dairy farm adjacent to the Hoge Veluwe National Park, amidst the Veluwe thorax, sandy paths and moorland. Renowned for its hospitality, Hoeve Meijer is the ideal place to experience farm life on your Gelderland glamping farm holiday. The farmer milks 25 cows in much the same way as 50 years ago with few large machines. It is an ideal opportunity for children to see and experience up close.
This original-style farm can be found in the Gelderse Valley on the edge of the Hoge Veluwe National Park. Hoeve Meijer, is a typical Veluwse farm that radiates tranquility and hospitality. It takes you back to the country life of years gone by. There are far reaching views of the forest and farmland which you can enjoy from your tent. In the summer, this environment is further enhanced by the sound of the many songbirds. The corn fields grown up to 2 metres high and provide shelter for animals. If you’re lucky enough, you may even get to see a deer!
The original farmhouse was built around 1910 and cost 600 guilders at that time, which was a lot in those days. Frits’ grandfather bought the farm from the first owner in 1950 unfortunately not for that amount! Back then, the farm had just 6 cows, 6 sows and 600 laying hens. When Frits and Jenny got married, they moved into the original farm.
This place is an ideal base to enjoy the peace and space of the Veluwe Countryside. The forests and the colourful countryside make it ideal for cycling and walking. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy a range of activities within cycling distance of the farm, from sports and nature to the local culture: horse-drawn carriage rides organized by the neighbours, an art gallery at the end of the street and of course the Kröller-Müller Museum.
