- In a forest three kilometres from the town of Gasselte
- Close to walking and cycle trails and a swimming lake with beach
- Home to the largest waterpark in the Netherlands
Forest forays in the north-east Netherlands… among the mountain bike and cycling of the country's Drenthe province and its hundreds of kilometres of trails? If this sounds tiptop, book a break at De Lente van Drenthe.
This family-friendly countryside site is three kilometres from the town of Gasselte, on the edge of the Gieten-Borger forest and its several walking and mountain bike trails. A lake with a beach and a swimming area is a short walk away too; golf, an amusement park, and a national park with more walking and cycle trails are also nearby.
Guided walks, crafts, shows and games for kids are among the activities arranged at De Lente van Drenthe in summer by the recreation team. There's a heated outdoor pool on site too, and a paddling pool, playground, pétanque court, tennis court, football pitch and games room.
In 2018, the clever folks here installed a fab new addition to proceedings: the largest waterpark in the Netherlands, no less. Settle in on site for three nights or more (always a good plan) and you'll be rewarded with free access to the waterpark along with all the other fun bits to do.
Amenities include a launderette, washing-up area and heated washrooms with toilets, showers and baby bathroom.

The Drenthe province is the best known in the Netherlands for its cycling options and hundreds of kilometres of trails through towns and villages, canals, forest and heath. Right next to the site are the trails of the Gieten Borger forest; more, along with horse riding, are at the Drentsche Aa National Park 15 kilometres away.
It's only a few kilometres from the site to the Drouwenerzand amusement park and its rides, rollercoasters, trampolines and loads of indoor play. Options further away include the Drents Museum (25 kilometres), the Assen TT Circuit (30 kilometres) and – most Dutch indeed – the International Clog Museum (40 kilometres).
The nearest swimming and beach is at the recreational lake of Hemelriek, 300 metres away on the forest's edge between Gasselte and Rene. A golf course is four kilometres from the site.
