Enjoy the oasis of peace, space and nature in the Kop van Overijssel. This region is located in the northwest of the province of Overijssel. In the north, the provincial border with Friesland forms the border of the region, in the east the province with Drenthe. The Kop van Overijssel is a beautiful nature area. You will find a lot of water here, vast reed lands and bird-rich swamps. You will also find the National Park Weerribben-Wieden in the Kop van Overijssel. A wonderful area that is of great importance as a habitat for, for example, the large fire butterfly, the otter, and the black tern. You will also find the famous village of Giethoorn in this National Park. This is an idyllic village in Overijssel where countless thatched farms are built on small peat islands that are connected with more than 170 wooden bridges. Perfect to go for a day and go with a whisper boat. You will also find the old Zuideerzee towns like Vollenhove and Blokzijl not far from Giethoorn. You'll walk past historic buildings, ancient churches, and castles and you can enjoy a drink on a terrace by the water.
The Kalverweide lies in the middle of the Kop van Overijssel, near the lakes of the Weerribben and the Drentse forests. It is about a fifteen-minute drive to the picturesque Giethoorn. This authentic farmhouse exudes history. The Feather Down lodges are in the pasture so that you can see the cows up close. There is also a large variety of animals: cuddly lamb Lotte, the cuddle pig Lapje, donkey Lucky, rabbits, chickens, guinea pigs .. too many to mention! In the area, you can cycle on the available rental bikes and explore the most beautiful routes to the nature reserve De Weerribben, National Park Dwingelderveld or nature reserve Het Drentsch-Friese Wold.
Modern camping with Feather Down takes place in the Kop van Overijssel on a farm where there is still plenty of work.
