Staying with the farmer makes many people think of camping. However, it is also possible to choose this comfortable holiday home on the estate of an active dairy farm. This place adds a whole new element to spaciousness and calm. The home boasts a view out over the lush landscape. The farm is an active business, which allows you to take a look at what happens in a modern dairy farm.
This region is a perfect place for cyclists and hikers. The Trekvogelpad, which is well known among hikers, is in the immediate area. For cyclists, there is the Flamingo Route, a cycling route that runs partially through German territory. Canoeing is also an option in the area. Erve Baak is located right on the Berkel river.
The cities of Winterswijk, Hengelo, Enschede, and Vreden (Germany) are roughly 20 km away. The charming fortified cities of Borculo and Groenlo are roughly 8 km away.
In addition to hiking and cycling, a visit to one of the many museums in the area is highly recommended. For instance, you can visit the crystal or fire department museum in the nearby town of Borculo. The clog factory in Beltrum is also well worth a visit. This clog factory is the largest in Europe!

Our 3 weeks just weren't long enough! The Baak family were delightful. The children baked us scones were a joy to see around - the piano lessons thrilled us. We learnt all about the dairy farm felt very relaxed welcome to wonder around. The walks with our dog around the local area were quiet beautifully rural. When other members of the family joined us they were made welcome too we strolled to the local hotel in Haarlo for probably the best warm apple cake we had in the region. Local markets towns were all worth visiting a short trip to Germany was pleasant too. We'd recommend Erve Baak to anyone looking for an escape to the country!
Erve Baak is a great place to re-charge your batteries. We live in a city and it was lovely to come to the peace and quiet of this beautiful farm. You get an amazing view of greenery almost everywhere, and our daughter loved seeing the cows and rabbits every day. The owners and their two sweet daughters were very friendly - and Harm, the farmer, explained everything we wanted to know about cow farming! They also were really attentive when our daughter hurt herself.
The kitchen is very well equipped, and you have your own swings and slide for children. There is a nice bath and a shower, plus two toilets, and plenty of space.
We loved it and probably will go back again.
Our holiday was a family leave to visit our family in Holland. There was enough space for us and to receive visitors. Additionally we could enjoy nature and the working farm. Also great for walks and bike rides.While a bigger city is not too far.
Wat hebben wij genoten deze vakantie! De kinderen hebben veel geholpen op de boerderij en wilden eigenlijk niet weg om ook nog iets van de omgeving te zien.
Het huis is ruim,van alle gemakken voorzien en erg netjes/schoon.
Wij komen zeker nog een keer terug!
Wij waren half juli te gast bij de familie Baak. Het is een mooi groot huis, met een ruime vrij liggende tuin en een fantastisch uitzicht aan de voorkant. Het welkom was hartelijk, er stond lekkers voor ons klaar. Voor vragen staan ze altijd klaar. Er is ook veel informatie aanwezig voor uitjes in de omgeving. Onze kinderen hebben genoten van het leven op de boerderij. Lekker kijken in de stal en mee rijden met de trekker voor het gras. Super gewoon.
Ruim huis, alles is aanwezig. Veel te zien op de boerderij, je mag overal komen en meehelpen. Voor onze zoon van bijna 3 was de rit op de tractor het hoogtepunt!!
In de omgeving veel te doen zowel bij mooi weer als minder weer.
Gastvrijheid was erg goed, bij vragen werd er direct op geanticipeerd!
