About this residence
Unique overnight stay? Go for a pipowagen on this farm in Bunschoten and sleep in the middle of nature.
Staying in the farmer’s yard
Sleeping in this pipowagen is guaranteed to be atmospheric. A homely look has been created by using the wood of the car and recycled fabrics as curtains. You sleep in a special way: nice and old-fashioned in a box bed. There is room for 4 people (including two children) because of the double bunk bed. The cottage is sheltered by trees and is surrounded by greenery. Immerse yourself in nature with a good book or relax in a different way. There is also enough space on the lawn to, for example, play a game of badminton for the ultimate camping experience!
The building with shower and toilet is a few meters away and in the summer you can use the BBQ. There is no kitchenette in the gypsy wagon, but you can bring your own cooking stove and pan set!
About the ranch.
Staying in the yard of this farm promises a lot of fun. For example, visit the Tasting Room and have a chat with a good cup of coffee. There are also all kinds of products from the region that you can try right away.
When you stay on the farm, you will quickly realize that there is genuine attention for people, animals and nature. For example, the organic vegetable garden is only harvested when a product is needed, to prevent food waste. In addition, biodegradable cleaning agent is used. Furthermore, a local focus and collaborations are also very important. The products from the Proeflokaal are organic, of regional origin or from our own garden. The farm keeps a small number of beef cattle. The idea behind this is that little meat is eaten, but good meat with attention to animal welfare. All in all, this place feels like a small community: cozy and friendly.

What makes this accommodation sustainable
Local products & collaborations
Ingredients used by the Tasting Room, among others, are purchased locally or come from our own garden. The harvest from the vegetable garden is collected for personal use or sold locally. In addition, the gypsy wagon was built on the yard itself!
A large part of the buildings on the farm are equipped with solar panels, which provide the green electricity that is used on the farm. In order to limit the impact on the environment, a circular way of generating electricity has been chosen.
Organic, tasty and local food is central to the farm. There is therefore a lot of attention here for healthy food. They also strive to eat less meat, the meat they do use comes from their own cows. This way they insure more sustainable meat.
Recycling and reuse of materials
Generating heat is done, among other things, by using residual wood. There is also a compost heap that ensures that green waste can be reused. Items are therefore handled with care.
Discover the whole yard
In addition to the organic farm, the large vegetable garden and the relaxation center, there is also a residential community for elderly people with dementia. During the morning, a cup of coffee is drunk together in the Tasting Room. You are most welcome to join us here!
Would you rather do something active when you come to sleep in a gypsy wagon? Discover the bee hotel, the herb garden and a treasure hunt for kids by means of the walking route through the yard. The family of the farm invites you to look around everywhere yourself. Do you want to roll up your sleeves? You are welcome to help out on the farm, to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life!
