- Party Venue
- Covered Wagon
With your group of friends, family, or with a group of colleagues you can book all four covered wagons as group accommodation. If the group is larger than 11 people, or if there is a need for more space and more privacy, you can also book the straw igloos. The capacity of the covered wagons and the three straw igloos combined is a total of 21 sleeping places. We place the covered wagons in a semicircle next to the straw igloos. It is of course also possible to place a tent or caravan there.
Are you looking for a group accommodation in the winter? Then come and sleep on the Hayloft. Here we have wonderful beds of straw, directly under the impressive roof of the farm. About 14 people can sleep here.
For groups 35 - 40 people it is possible to reserve the covered wagon plus all beds of the Straw hotel. The entire accommodation - excluding the camping part - is then exclusively for your group.
With good weather, the outside air is the common area. Cozy together around a campfire, let the stories come. If it is too cold or wet, you can use the Barn & Beach, or we will place a large party tent next to the covered wagons. Celebrating outside with loud music etc. is not permitted. If you want to organize a party with your group, ask about the possibilities and conditions.
Bringing your own food and drinks is permitted. In the so-called outdoor kitchen (= separate log cabin) all facilities are available to make coffee / tea and cook. We recommend combining the group adventure in the covered wagon with, for example, the workshop Outdoor Cooking. Cook Harrie teaches you all the tricks of outdoor cooking on open fires.
Dear Hans and Will, the weekend is already over . We have four of us enjoyed our time in the straw castle. Breakfast was fantastic and the setting beautiful. Yesterday we did the inboeringscursus at Egbert and Ciska on farm Knight . That was an experience never to be forgotten . We felt honored to be seeing the first lambs born triplets of the season. it was a great company with foolish kind and hospitable people. The Groningen weekend was a success. Bye! Regards, John, Ellen , Rose and Puck .
It was a very fun and unique experience. The quiet surroundings , the bright sky certainly something magical. Very hospitable people here, nice breakfast in a cozy environment between all the straw. Even when it’s freezing outside , it ‘s in here nice and warm by a small heater. The Wadden are definitely worth discovering , as well as the beautiful surroundings , with its vast meadows and big farms. Hopefully till next time . Sören and Laura from the “small” Belgium
Thanks for the great experience . We slept like a prince and princess in the wonderful straw – super cozy ! We like to come back sometime in the summer weather . Greetings and Niels Rowenna
Easter 2015 Dear Hans and Will, we have enjoyed in your beautiful straw castle! After a nice welcome and a nice ‘ inboeringscursus ‘ at farmer Kees we crawled our nice bed. even though it was we slept wonderfully -5 degrees outside . In the morning we were like smoke -breathing dragons awake! Having been a delicious breakfast to Pieterburen and the mudflats . But first we have cycled a round at the Elliptigo ‘s , what does that tasty. After a wonderful night we sit down to breakfast , socializing with female Fransel . The Igloos places and you invite another visit , there are still so much to do fun things here . And the girls still want to play games again , drumming and sit on the swing . Thank you very much for your hospitality and maybe see you soon! Jack , Annie, Berit , Ylva , Jytte
Many thanks for the warm welcome and the good care during our stay. We spent the night in the beautiful group accommodation of Hayema Heerd. Inspiring to spend the night in a luxurious way on the straw. We greatly enjoyed our stay, the workshop with the shepherd and the beautiful surroundings. We can heartily recommend the workshop to other organizations that want to learn more about their (internal) cooperation. Our team has learned a lot about leadership roles in which the sheep are a wonderful mirror of our behavior.
