Hoeve Waterschap

Friesland, Echtenerbrug

This classic stolp (is Dutch for bell jar) is owned by us the Diever family:  Gert, Christa and our children Sanne, Femke and Jente. The stolp lies in the heart of the Echtenerveenpolder in an area of outstanding natural beauty called the Veen-weidegebieden. This used to be a peat-cutting district and consequently the landscape is criss-crossed with waterways, ditches and lakes.

Our farm was built by the once important 'Dutch Waterways' as a co-operative farm for all the cattle and sheep that graze amongst the surrounding dykes. There is plenty of water nearby to enjoy. 150 yards away you will find the waterway "Pier Christiaanvaart" which is connected with the beautiful friesian lakes.

A meadow separates the waterway from the farm, so adventurous children can still play safely. At our farm you will find a petting area, sheep, rabbits, chickens and goats roam freely in the enclosure. We have 3 goats which were bottle fed and are very friendly and love to be taken for a walk. Our active dairy farm has nearly 100 cows in the summer, grazing in the surrounding meadows and it is also offers the opportunity to help a hand on the farm. But if you fancy a relaxing afternoon in the hot tub, a swim in the canal or the luxury of a fresh breakfast in your tent, this is all possible too.

We are Gert and Crista, together with our children Sanne, Femke and Jente we live as 3rd generation on this magnificent farmhouse dating from the year 1850. We hope to see you soon on our adventurous Farm!

See you soon!

Gert, Crista Diever and Sanne, Femke and Jente

    Prima locatie, veel privacy om de tent heen door de grote plaatsen en bomen tussen de tenten in. De boerderijwinkel die altijd open was door zelfbedieningsconcept vonden we zeer prettig. Met name de streekproducten zijn leuk om te gebruiken. Verder ook fijn dat er douches aanwezig waren mocht je een keer geen zin hebben om de buitendouche op te stoken. Mooie omgeving om met de fiets te verkennen. Ontvangst zeer hartelijk en gastvrij. Mooie verhalen van opa Stef. Fijn dat alles op kinderen gericht is. Je voelt je meteen thuis op het erf.

    Crista en Gert hebben ons erg goed ontvangen. We voelden ons meteen welkom. We hadden vanuit onze Heerenboerentent een prachtig uitzicht op de weiden en zagen in de verte de bootjes passeren. Onze twee kindjes van vier en twee jaar hebben zich ontzettend goed geamuseerd met de geitjes, konijntjes, kleine kalfjes,... De pizza-avond was ook heel gezellig. Ons verblijf is voorbijgevlogen. We zullen zeker nog terugkomen.

    Heerlijk weekend doorgebracht. De jongens hebben zich prima vermaakt en wilden tussendoor de boerderij niet verlaten voor een uitje.

    Helaas werkte het weer niet mee,met 25 grdn is alles leuker, maar we hebben erg genoten bij Gert en Christa. De bijzondere gastvrijheid, het gemoedelijke, het erf waar je lekker kan struinen. Tussen de koeien door naar de dijk lopen en boten kijken. De kinderen spelen allemaal met elkaar, je mist geen tv oid!! Mooie omgeving om te fietsen. De pizza-avond met zn allen is ook heel erg leuk! De moeite waard! Fam. Snitselaar

    Ondanks het iets mindere weer heerlijk genoten van ons verblijf.. De sfeer,het knusse tentje,vuurtje stoken,baden in de natuur,lekker voetballen met de andere kinderen,uitzicht op eindeloze velden,plasjes lopen,kalfjes voeden,pizza maken,konijntjes knuffelen,rondtoeren met go-carts op het erf,...de eerste indruk bij het zien van de tent viel het ons zoontje op dat er geen televisie was?? maar deze hebben ze niet gemist!! en de papa die niet zo kampeergezind was gaan we de volgende keer niet moeten overtuigen want ook hij heeft de kampeersfeer te pakken,supertof concept!!
