GROUPACCOMMODATION IN FRIESLAND
Are you forever on the lookout for that one great place where you can enjoy time with family or other families? But then again… not constantly? A place where you also have your privacy, so that you can wake up in peace with your own family, and enjoy your breakfast at your own pace. During the day you can all head off to the mudflats, lakes or islands, and in the evening you get to cook together in the large kitchen and eat together at a long table in the communal space. This place is the groupaccommodation of Lân, Loft, Wetter and Waad!
Here you’ve got it all: the groupaccommodation has 4 separate houses, each with its own kitchen, toilet and bedrooms. As well as a communal area large enough for everyone to cook and eat together in. All that together under the large roof of an attractive ‘barn’. Lân, Loft, Wetter and Waad. That’s what these beautifully designed holiday homes are called. It’s Frisian for land, air, water and mudflats. And that’s all there is around here… There are no motorways, no crowds, no air pollution and no densely built up areas. But you do get vast cloudy skies, nature and space. With the risk that you relax, enjoy yourself and find a bit of peace and quiet. Be careful
GROUPACCOMMODATION FOR 12, 16 OR 20 PEOPLE
Altogether, the groupaccommodation has 4 houses and 20 beds. Plus a cot here and there if need be. In the communal area, you can share a large kitchen where you can all cook together; there is a long table to eat at and a cosy cushioned area with a TV if the children start to get bored. In the evening you can make a nice fire in the communal area of the groupaccommodation and with the baby monitor on the table you can chat away until the early hours. Older children will have no problem finding their own space in one of the houses.
COLORS FROM NATURE
The colours and furnishing of the 4 houses of the groupaccommodation fit in with the themes. Did you have any idea that nature could be so colourful? With the huge windows at the front and back and the breathtaking panoramic view, it’s as if nature were joining you at the table. The colours used emphasise this effect. You can just sit here and spend the whole day watching the clouds float by… daydreaming is apparently very good for the soul. But you can also get plenty out of your stay, of course: read our best tips here!
CHILDFRIENDLY STAY IN FRIESLAND
The site is very spacious. Behind the groupaccommodation there is a large sheltered orchard with tables where you can all sit down and eat together outside. There is also a a fireplace here so you can enjoy the great outdoors until late at night.
The video below will give you an impression of a winter weekend with family in the groupaccommodation.
At the small neighbouring campsite, you’ll find for the children a great playground, a trampoline and a large sandpit. And more bikes, go-karts, a football field and lots of places to sit and relax. At the far end of the campsite is a jetty with 2 Canadian canoes and 2 kayaks for paddling among the meadows.

Below you will find some activities which are nice to do in a group. When you want a good overview of more activities in the region, take a look at our page surroundings.
Walks through the mudflats
World heritage site the Wadden Sea is the spot where you can get your whole team involved in a challenge, while gathering fresh inspiration at the same time. A walk through the mudflats at Wadloopcentrum Fryslân or Wadloopcentrum Pieterburen really is an experience that you must have had at least once. And by that we don’t mean just a simple walk. You walk along the bottom of the sea, through mud flats and water; you are challenged by the elements; and on the way you see birds, sometimes seals and the most incredible skies full of clouds.
Of course, you have to make sure that you all get to the other side in time, and sometimes you will be wading through waist-high water. And once it’s over, you’ll all get together to wash the mud off your shoes and legs … what better way to create team spirit!
Sailing across the Wadden Sea and/or the Lauwersmeer
Sailing the seas together on a ship also creates a feeling of kinship ! In Lauwersoog, you can board the big ship MS Tender and sail over the Wadden Sea, between the islands and out to the North Sea! Go fishing for mackerel or cod and experience the sailor’s life up close. Also sailing but in a different way: why not all go on a canoe trip across the Lauwersmeer?
Outdoor activities in Nationaal Park Lauwersmeer
We can also organise a variety of activities in the Lauwersmeer National Park. Mountain biking, stepping, GPS tours, adventurous walks with the forest ranger, sailing (this is also possible on the mudflats) or you can all cycle the famous Rondje Lauwersmeer (45 km).
And if you fancy a really fun day out in between sessions, then rent a few Tuktuk’s and enjoy a real experience with the relaxing 1 cylinder diesel cars.
