Farm Activities & Leisure in the Green Achterhoek Region
Experience Farm Life at Den Branderhorst
The Den Branderhorst farm is a beautiful old farm surrounded by nature. We have been milking cows here for as long as 150 years. Time seems to be standing still on our farm, and stepping into it is like stepping into a completely different world.
At our farm you can stay the night in one of our luxurious safari tents, but you can also experience milking cows, cuddling with chickens, rabbits or cows, or host a birthday party, have a business meeting, build a campfire, make local dishes… and so on!
Staying the Night
Experience the beautiful Achterhoek region from our mini-camping, in one of our nine extremely luxurious safari tents. Your own shower, toilet and playroom are included, and a great time for your children is guaranteed.
Birthday party? Family outing? Team building? Create your own activity package to perfectly fit your wishes. Would you like to include a high tea or a high wine? It’s all possible.

History of the Den Branderhorst Farm...
The name “Branderhorst” consists of the Dutch words ‘Brander’, which means ‘burning’, and ‘Horst’, which used to refer to a farm. This name stems from older times, when the so-called wild areas were first cultivated by burning down portions of forest, creating farmland.
Ever since 1860, the residential family of the farm has been the Pelgrum family, currently the fifth generation. Traditionally, the first names of the male family members alternate between ‘Frederik’ and ‘Peter Hermanus’ each generation. The current resident is Frederik Pelgrum with his wife Annemarie and their four daughters.
Den Branderhorst is a beautiful traditional farm surrounded by nature. The farm has long been in use as a mixed company, functioning as a small-scale dairy farm among others, and it hasn’t changed much over the years.
