Nature campsite with focus on culture & food
Ellerhuizen is situated on the border of the city of Groningen and the northern region ‘Hogeland’. It is a characteristic place with old farm buildings typical of Groningen. On one of these farms lies 2Bunders, a Nature Campsite with twenty spacious pitches, an apartment for rent, a hiker’s cabin and a Mongolian felt tent. On the farm we keep goats, sheep and chickens. There is an orchard with centuries’ old apple and pear trees and a garden flowing with berries. The supply from the grounds is used to make jams and juices.
Its location makes the campsite the ideal starting point for cycling trips as well as cultural day trips. You can easily visit the city of Groningen, the many historical churches in the region, the coastal village of Pieterburen or the nature reserve Lauwersmeer.
The campsite is made up of two parts, separated by a large navigable pond with a footbridge. On the West side, which was a meadow until 2014, a line of trees and an orchard was planted by Landschapsbeheer Groningen (regional landscape management). It is a great spot to enjoy the panoramic view over the countryside. The East side of the campsite is more secluded due to the variety of old trees and bushes. During the high season the East side is only open for tents.
The campsite is very child-friendly as there is loads to explore in the gardens. Additionally they can interact with small farm animals, row a boat in the pond, use the go-kart or play with the available toys.
