Description

The De Graafschap National Landscape extends around Lochem, near Laren. It is a beautiful small-scale landscape that is characterized by the fairytale views in a semi-open area. The interplay of wooded banks, hedges, farms, fields and streams gives the area something exciting. The bocage landscape also has many estates and castles that are typical of the area and the forests at the Ampsense Veld are full of beautiful coniferous and deciduous trees, bordering an extensive heathland area. Deer, mouflon and wild sheep live in this beautiful and peaceful nature reserve. Guard against mosquitoes, especially if the weather has been nice for a few days, many can be found because of the moist heath. Park your car at Camping De Vlinderhoeve. The site on which this four-star campsite is located used to belong to an estate. The Butterfly Farm has retained that romantic appearance and it is therefore nice to pitch your tent here for an overnight stay. Route 137084 also starts and ends here, so the next day you can make that trip through the green area. During your bike ride you can enjoy nice sights, such as the estate Havezate Oolde, built in 1663. The brick house was also called Nijenhuis and originally belonged to the nearby Old Oolde castle. In the eighteenth century, the house was radically modernized and given a whole new entrance. The house still has an eighteenth-century appearance today. Although you can enter the estate freely, the house and its immediate surroundings are closed to the public. The history of Huis Ampsen goes back to 1105. The first castle and both houses on the estate were destroyed in 1605 by the Spaniards. The present house was rebuilt in the first half of the seventeenth century. A wing has been added to the right over time, giving the building a U-shape. The castle and estate is privately owned and not accessible. Before you return to the campsite, you can take a look at a real vineyard. At the Nieuwe Baankreis vineyard, all kinds of grape varieties are grown organically. What is special is that you can also admire an organic laying hen company here and that the chickens roam freely through the vineyard.
