Relaxation and activity in the Drenthe countryside

A holiday in the heart of Drenthe in a luxury bungalow situated on the edge of a recreational lake? That is possible at Het Timmerholt holiday park near Westerbork! The water fun is very varied: take a dip, hire a pedal boat or cast a fishing rod. There is also plenty of entertainment on land. Children enjoy the beautiful playground and sports fields. There is also a restaurant to grab a bite to eat. From the park, you can take beautiful cycling and walking trips through the forests of Drenthe.

Rural environment

This holiday park is situated in the middle of the province Drenthe, just north of Westerbork. The grounds are surrounded by heathland and woods. In such rural surroundings, relaxing is a piece of cake. With tourist towns such as Dwingeloo, Diever and Orvelte within cycling distance, there are plenty of nice trips to be made. The holiday park is flanked by the Oranjekanaal. There is a nice cycle path along it.

Recreational lake

The large lake is the biggest source of fun on holiday park Het Timmerholt. In the summer you can cool down wonderfully. And of course there's nothing more fun than hiring a pedal boat with the whole family. Anglers will find great spots to cast a line. The water is full of fish, so there is a good chance that you will catch a fish. You can buy various fishing tackle at reception. The beach at the water's edge is a favourite with children. They can build sandcastles and play here.

Activity and relaxation

Everyone can show off their sportiest side on the tennis court or the multi-sports field. Or what about an exciting game of table tennis? Those who prefer things a bit quieter can also play a relaxing game of jeu de boules or minigolf. Furthermore, it is fun to explore the park on a bicycle or go-kart. These can be rented at the reception. Children are in for a real treat. There is entertainment in the high season and they can make friends in the playground. With a slide, bouncy castle and play castle, there is plenty to do.
Of course a restaurant belongs on a holiday park. At Het Timmerholt you'll also find a coffee corner and snack bar. The shop has a limited assortment, but for a nice breakfast there's enough choice.

Luxury holiday homes and safari tents

With around a hundred holiday homes and forty touring pitches the focus at Het Timmerholt lies on rental accommodations. The holiday homes are suitable for groups of four to as many as twelve people. Handy for larger families! The most luxurious houses have their own sauna, sun bed and jacuzzi. But that is not all. There are also beautiful studios and furnished safari tents for rent.

Discover the surroundings

Drenthe is of course known for its megalithic tombs. Perhaps this region reminds you of the mammoth hunters of prehistoric times. That is not so strange. In this province, you really go back in time. For example, during a visit to the 'primeval village' of Orvelte (5 km). There are many monuments and other historical sights here. With children, a trip to Wildlands Adventure Zoo in Emmen (25 km) is highly recommended. You can sniff out culture, go shopping or visit a museum in Assen (20 km) or Hoogeveen (25 km). And the nature of Drenthe is best discovered by bike.
