Alan Rogers Review

Het Horstmannsbos aims to attract people who want to holiday amidst nature and feel relaxed and comfortable in natural surroundings. It is an attractive, tranquil site in the woods near Gasselte. The site has some 180 pitches, of which 100 are for tourers. Arranged on level fields, taking between four and 20 units, there are 15 serviced pitches (water, electricity and drainage). To the rear of the site is a large field without electricity for tent campers, while on the far side there is a separate area for mobile homes, and to the right a bungalow park.

An open air pool (10x5 m) is behind reception, where there are also sports facilities. A welcoming bar/restaurant has an open-air terrace for drinks and snacks. From the back of the site, you can walk or cycle into the interesting Drouwenerzand nature reserve. Here you’ll find a mix of woodland, dunes and moorland. The Het Drouwenerzand theme park is nearby, where children can enjoy the carnival and other attractions.
