10X COOL GLAMPINGS IN THE NETHERLANDS AND BELGIUM
With Corona still being on the loose, many people have decided to stay in their own country or visit holiday destinations that are not too far from home. Next to that, with festivals being cancelled again, several entrepreneurs with music festival backgrounds have decided to join forces and set up unique glamping experiences.
Here are 10 cool glampings in The Netherlands and Belgium we think you should check out this season.
Forest Glamping, Gelderland
Fortunately glampings like these exists! Forest Glamp has a unique concept as they are an adults only glamping with a 2 weeks family special from the 24th of juli until the 7th of August. On the camping ground there is a foodcourt and you can sleep in different accommodations such as Yurts, a typical Dutch “beddestee” or even a luxury glamping house with your own bathroom. If you want you can relax in the wellness area or shop in the “borrow” store. There is a BBQ area where you can prepare your BBQ package or rent (e) -bikes, e-scooters or e-crossers to explore the Achterhoek. We’ve booked an XL Yurt for this coming July and can’t wait to see! forrestglamp.nl
NEW in 2021! Glamp Outdoor Camp
This brand new pop-up glamping with a festival vibe, where comfortable camping accommodations are set up in the most special places in the Netherlands. Think of untouched nature reserves such as the Veluwe to unique places such as sleeping between historic bunkers on an abandoned military base in Twente. In short, Glamp Outdoor Camp offers an unforgettable holiday or mini-break, which you can make as luxurious as you want, with plenty of entertainment.
This summer Bohiem takes you on a small adventure in the Veluwe National Park, with the focus on food! Every Friday and Saturday a 5-course dinner is prepared in the open air for up to 20 guests. In addition, once a month there is a Chef’s Table where chef Freek van Noortwijk prepares unique dishes for an intimate group of gourmets. After the Bohiem Diner and Chef’s Table, guest sleep in a luxurious tipi. The experience starts from 4pm with a drink-picnic basket. Dinner starts at 7pm. Breakfast is served the next morning between 9 am and 10 am. bohiem.nl
Kalumaan, Netl de Wildste Tuin
This pop-up glamping is normally hosting the Wildeburg Festival, but now offers a mini festival glamping experience at Netl de Wildste Tuin. There is a beach with lake, playgrounds for kids and swimming pool. Furthermore, they have romantic huts, tipi’s or safari tents for. The idyllic village is surrounded by wild nature. Stroll through bamboo forests, along beaches and impressive works of art. Active people take the obstacle run of four kilometers or swim a lap through the water in 45 minutes. Do you want to relax? At our various bars and mobile kitchens there is enough space to hang, play and relax with a distance. Nearby, you can visit Gierhoorn, or the lesser known Dwarsgracht which we also mention in our book. Kallumaan.nl
East Nomads, Gelderland
They offer private toilets, beautiful set-up bohemian bell tents and freshly baked bread for breakfast. Again, festival organizers joined forces to offer you the ultimate experience. With your own luxury place in the middle of nature you will find peace and luxury close to home. So what’s different? They sell unique packages such as a 6-course dinner by Ron Gastrobar and in August there will be a Smokey BBQ Village. If you want to enjoy East Nomads without an extra package, book your overnight stay during the Family & Friends weeks. Choose a (long) weekend, (mid) week or long week.
Landgoed Ottermeer, Brabant
It has to be said, that they are already fully booked until the end of august, so be quick if you want to avoid disappointment. Owners Frans and Yvonne, bought an old farm with 20 hectares of agricultural land. With the help of Brabants Landschap they developed and implemented an estate nature plan. In total, 50,000 trees were planted. The now mature nature reserve is one of the richest values of their estate. The camping site is located in the middle of it all. This glamping is perfect for young families. Besides offering bell tents, you can also bring your own tent or campervan. landgoedottermeer.nl
Zwier, Vinkeveense Plassen
Located only 15 minutes from Amsterdam, Zwier is the place to go to for recharging your batteries. Young families and couples come here to relax, enjoy the Vinkeveense Plassen and eat delicious organic food. We stayed here 2 years ago and we can highly recommend this glamping. For more info check our review about Zwier.
Green Fields, Durbuy
The people behind Tomorrowland and festival village Dreamville have been busy these last couple of months. They are hosting the biggest festival glamping in Belgium so far. Dream away in one of the 8 different and unique accommodations – normally only available to Tomorrowland visitors. Book activities, massages and eat well. Each day Green Fields will host a cozy apero at the Montagoe around the swimming pool. Filled with downtempo music, delicious food, drinks and stunning entertainment. Out of respect the DJ’s and entertainment will end by 10PM. If you ask us, it has all the ingredients of a festival, yet, they are saying they can regulate the Corona rules in a legal way. Let’s see. durbuygreenfields.com
The Nutchel Forest Camp is located in the middle of the Belgian Ardennes, in Martelange. The 26 “cozy cabins” all have a stylish design and a comfortable interior. They are designed in such a way that they blend in beautifully with the surrounding nature. The cabins are heated with wood stoves and lit with oil lamps. You can gather wood in the woods and burn it yourself, very romantic in winter!
In the morning you will be awakened by the song of birds and the scent of nature will come at you as soon as you open the doors. In the evening, the oil lamps provide a romantic atmosphere and if you look up you have a chance to win a beautiful starry sky. You can swim in the summer near the camp. Canoeing or kayaking is possible on a lake that is about a twenty minute drive away. Do you want to relax extra? Then book a cabin with a hot tub! Even better, there is also a sauna that you can rent privately for several hours. nutchel.be
Les Cabanes de Rensiwez
Unfortunately it’s not possible to bring your own tent or campervan to this glamping, but their amazing accommodations make up for it! We stayed here a few years ago, and the scenery is amazing! Sleep in hobbit-like houses or a treehouse with a wooden bathtub, the options are endless. In the morning you can order your fresh French style breakfast and you can really enjoy the surroundings.
