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.
In this Mongolian Ger (sometimes also known as Yurt) you can truly enjoy the peace and quiet of the Groningen countryside. The Ger is located on a spacious spot near the water on the edge of the campsite. Staying in a Ger is the ideal combination of camping and comfort. You are close to nature but with the comfort of a bed and you can easily prepare your meals inside. As the roof is see-through you get a great view of the starry skies at night.
The Ger is furnished with traditional Mongolian furniture and comfortable beds. There is a double bed and a bunk bed (mattress length 180 cm): suitable for a maximum of two adults and two children. The Ger is completely set up for four people. There is also a wood burner for colder nights. It’s also possible to have a campfire outside, there are fire bowl available.
The kitchen area has a gas stove and an electric fridge. The lighting also runs on electricity. Drinking water comes out of a 10 liter jerrycan which of course can be refilled.
The spacious sanitary facilities are located in the main building. During early season and off-season the sanitary facilities are heated.
The beds are already made when you arrive so you’ll feel right at home.
All facilities on the campsite are available during your stay. You’re welcome to use the tourist information, the little library, the many toys or the small rowing boat in the pond.
