Feather Down Hoeve Waterschap


Along the Pieter Christiaan canal and a short distance from Lemmer is the 150 year old, monumental Frisian farmhouse of Hoeve Waterschap. Built as one of the first farms after the reclamation of the peat polder. Hoeve Waterschap is still a bustling center

Activities on the farm:

The active dairy farm contains nearly 100 cows in the summer grazing in the meadows around. It’s also possible if you fancy a relaxing afternoon in the hot tub, a swim in the canal or the luxury of a fresh breakfast in your tent.

At the farm you will find a “children-zoo”: sheep, rabbits, cuddle-chicken (get up early to get some fresh eggs) and goats roam freely in the enclosure. There are 3 goats which were bottle fed and are therefore very friendly and love to be taken for a walk. Children will spend ages in the zoo. Another favourite activity for children is swimming in the nearby river Tjonger or in the Tjeukermeer (meer=lake). The village Echtenerbrug is a great place to go for a drink and watch the boats going past.
