Natuurvriendenhuis/kampeerterrein het Hunehuis
The Hunehuis lies on top of the Havelterberg near the dolmens, in the middle of (heath)pools, near heathland, wood, and drifting sand. The lovely renovated house for nature lovers lies in an own parcel of wood. The new wing for the sleeping accomodation is comfortable and fits in the landscape. In the older buildings the original elements of the Bauhaus style are visible.
There is accommodation for 72 guests in 29 rooms. From the community hall you have a lovely view; you look out over the Heathland of the Ooster- and Westerzand. Sheep pass by every morning and night. Please bring your own linen. On a sheltered field for hikers there are ten pitches (no caravans). This field is a nature campsite, so a special camping card (“Natuurkampeerkaart”) is obliged. Children have full opportunities for playing around the house.
The new national park the Drents-Friese Wold, just as the well-known National Park Dwingelerveld are lying on bike distance. In Havelte (3 km) bikes are for rent. You can wander round for hours, such as along the Drenthe Path or the new Havezathen Path. The marshes of the Rottige Meenthe , de Weerribben and the Wiedden are on bike distance, too. The rich broekbossen* are paradises for birdwatchers and plants. From Giethoorn you may discover the wetlands by boat: by punt, canoe or whisper boat. The libelles (dragonfly) are gliding above your head. The villages Diever and Ruinen are beautiful and worth a visit with their village greens which make them ‘brinkdorpen’ , from the English word brink. In the town of Havelte golf players can let themselves go. And it has a swimming pool (2 km), and a butterfly paradise (Vlinderparadijs) called Papillorama. Historic cities like Steenwijk, Vollenhove and Zwartsluis are worth a visit. In Kallenkote (3 km) you find the beautiful Indonesian miniature and birds park “Vogelpark Taman Indonesia” with a children’s farm. The Koloniehof in Frederiksoord (7.5 km), (colonies museum), learns you everything about life at the 19th century.
