Wim is a wonderful host - very kind and extremely generous with his resources and time. The grounds are beautiful. Our children were endlessly entertained by Hammer, the cattle, the horses and the chickens (along with the newly hatched chicks). Highly recommend the host and the location, we are definitely coming back.

Wim was a great host! He met us on arrival and showed us around the property where we got to meet the cows, horses and chickens, and he even let us take a bunch of fresh chicken eggs to eat. We were able to fill some drinking water and he had firewood to use. The cows were curious and friendly, the horses were so gentle and beautiful... It was so enjoyable to be around them!! This experience inspires us to do something similar one day. Thanks for a great stay, Wim!

Privacy, a meadow, a field, a creek, a forest, a herd of cattle and a trio of horses - what more could one ask for? If the answer is a welcoming and wonderful host and a friendly dog, then one will get that here with Wim and Hammer.

As soon as I met the host, Wim, i immediately could tell that he was a gentle family man! I was lucky to be able to meet his two wonderful sisters as well, who ended up coming for a little buggie tour of his property! Once we found his 3 gorgeous, majestic horses, we road on to find his heard of Scottish cattle in a little river on his property. He is close enough to them to pet them, comb them and give them different, fun hairstyles if he wants to!
My site that I stayed on was beautiful and had such beautiful sunlight coming through the trees. I felt very relaxed, at home and safe there.
Wim loves sharing his property with others and was such a joy to stay with!!
Thank you for showing me around your property Wim and for the fun memories! I wish you all the best in your future adventures and am so glad that our paths crossed!

Hearing the horses by my tent at night was so surreal! They were just doing their nightly rounds of the property! You can't beat morning light rays like this.My first highland cow encounter and man, are they cute! The host, Wim is a jack of all trades!

Bring carrots and apples to feed the horses (easier to feed cut up peices not too small). I enjoyed farm fresh eggs in the morning. It was so hot i was tempted to go in the creek with the cows. There were really no spiders here, except for in the bush. No spiders on my tent when i put it away. I recomend a fly swatter for killing the pesky flies in the tent. You can bring treats for the farm dog, or anti flea/ear mite from vet.

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The site was unbelievable. No need for music just listen to the sound of nature. With all the free wood available by nature it’s self. The cows did their thing while we watched. The horses or one of our favourites. I definitely would recommend this place to anyone that wants to relax and enjoy nature and respect it for what it is.

Wim was a great host - frequent tours of the grounds on his gator, feeding the chickens, collecting eggs; he checked on us and offered help after some crazy weather. Plenty of fire wood to collect, gorgeous grounds (watch where you step!!), Watch the sunset from the closest site (electrical). Cows and horses hang out quite close to sites which was amazing!! Wim joined us for a campfire and bevvies one night too :). We will absolutely return!!
