We are in the beautiful ‘Kop van Noord-Holland’. You are on a unique piece of reclaimed land on the yard of a former arable farm. On one side you can see the ‘Wieringermeer polder’. The first in 1930 reclaimed ‘Zuiderzee polder’. On the other side of the dike is the Groetpolder.
Middenmeer is the name of the village where we will welcome you and your motorhome. This amazingly beautiful part of the Netherlands has an incredible amount of thing to offer you. There is peace and quiet, art and culture, enough activities and wonderful nature. Woods, dunes, and sea are just around the corner. They are easy to reach via unexpectedly nice cycle routes. Just like fine terraces and plenty of shopping opportunities.
The former Zuiderzee village of Kolhorn, for example, is worth a visit, just at two kilometres. A little further away is the lively town of Schagen. Here you will find all the services you can think of. The route towards it takes you past extensive bulb fields. Turn right before Schagen and those same fields will take you to the coast. Not a beach lover? Then choose the other direction and visit the IJsselmeer town of Medemblik or enjoy a great fish catch in the harbour of den Oever.
At our Marnic Hoeve, you and your camper will find a beautifully located pitch in the middle of North Holland's nature on our own property. We are proud of our place of residence and like to share this pride. With this in mind, we take great pleasure in welcoming our guests.
Once you are installed on one of our paved grass pitches, you can go in all directions and enjoy beautiful walking and/or cycling tours across the West Frisian countryside. From our private jetty, you can easily take a refreshing dip in the Groetkanaal canal, unwind while fishing or play an old-fashioned game of jeu de boules with your travelling companion or one of the other camper van guests on the newly constructed court.
As standard, we offer you and your camper the four basic necessities: a pitch, Wifi, water and electricity. Discharging grey water and emptying the toilet cassette is also possible with us. Finally, there is a toilet and shower you can use. We do ask you to keep these tidy. Pets are welcome, by arrangement, at camper pitch Marnic Hoeve.
Besides living, we both have our own company in the Marnic Hoeve. Coen is Agricultural Business Advisor and works with his team from the office on the ground floor. Margriet works from the first floor with her team for Stichting ZOdIEZiJN (mooidoormij.nl).
The name of the farm was invented by Grandpa Knook when he was allowed to lease the farm from the ‘Rijksdienst voor IJsselmeerpolders’ (Dutch National Service) in 1938. The name is a reference to the first names of Grandpa and Grandma Knook, but also to the Latin word Maritiem and the Greek word Nicola; or "overcome by the sea".
To make your stay at our location possible, there are expenses, and we ask a small fee. We charge € 17,50 for a stay in a campervan with two persons. This includes tourist tax and the use of Wi-Fi, water and for electricity.
Every day we do more than our best to maintain and beautify our living and working space and your place to sleep. Do you have any ideas or tips? We would love to hear them!
