- Party Venue
- Covered Wagon
Hayema Heerd is the best party location in Groningen for family celebrations. Why?
In the large barn with cozy seats, the straw couch, table tennis table, swing, games, nobody gets bored. Or choose the cheerful Barn & Beach for a unique beach party.
For family groups we offer various really fun activities - suitable for young and older. We recommend the workshops "outdoor cooking", "driving sheep", the Boer'n Business Training Course. Or nice and sporty: cycling or touring with the elliptical. Get inspired and take a look at our Activities.
A family weekend incl. Overnight stay is also possible. Sleeping in the Straw hotel, or adventurous in the covered wagons. We place the covered wagons together in a semicircle at a nice spot of the terrain. There are picnic tables and a fire bowl and the 'far wild west is suddenly close by'.
Prefer an outdoor party and cozy camping with the whole family? That is certainly also possible. For groups we have a separate field on our mini camping.
Nice atmosphere and good working conditions.
Dear Hans and Will, the weekend is already over . We have four of us enjoyed our time in the straw castle. Breakfast was fantastic and the setting beautiful. Yesterday we did the inboeringscursus at Egbert and Ciska on farm Knight . That was an experience never to be forgotten . We felt honored to be seeing the first lambs born triplets of the season. it was a great company with foolish kind and hospitable people. The Groningen weekend was a success. Bye! Regards, John, Ellen , Rose and Puck .
It was a very fun and unique experience. The quiet surroundings , the bright sky certainly something magical. Very hospitable people here, nice breakfast in a cozy environment between all the straw. Even when it’s freezing outside , it ‘s in here nice and warm by a small heater. The Wadden are definitely worth discovering , as well as the beautiful surroundings , with its vast meadows and big farms. Hopefully till next time . Sören and Laura from the “small” Belgium
Thanks for the great experience . We slept like a prince and princess in the wonderful straw – super cozy ! We like to come back sometime in the summer weather . Greetings and Niels Rowenna
Easter 2015 Dear Hans and Will, we have enjoyed in your beautiful straw castle! After a nice welcome and a nice ‘ inboeringscursus ‘ at farmer Kees we crawled our nice bed. even though it was we slept wonderfully -5 degrees outside . In the morning we were like smoke -breathing dragons awake! Having been a delicious breakfast to Pieterburen and the mudflats . But first we have cycled a round at the Elliptigo ‘s , what does that tasty. After a wonderful night we sit down to breakfast , socializing with female Fransel . The Igloos places and you invite another visit , there are still so much to do fun things here . And the girls still want to play games again , drumming and sit on the swing . Thank you very much for your hospitality and maybe see you soon! Jack , Annie, Berit , Ylva , Jytte
Last weekend we have (10 former fellow students ) spent on the farm. We were welcomed with coffee and cake Groninger . Then quickly go to the neighbors to help with milking the cows, calves bringing , feeding, cleaning and so on. Very nice to see what all is involved in running a dairy farm . Then back to have a drink and enjoy a meal in the spacious living room . The underfloor heating makes it toasty warm , modern toilets and showers are great! Sleeping in the hayloft on hay bales is a unique experience . Very cozy and warm. The next morning we serve a delicious and very rich breakfast. Highly recommended to stay in this unique location with these hospitable people.
We had a very nice sheep driving workshop, relaxed and active at the same time. Subsequently a very good and varied meal from the barbecue, no greasy bite but tasty meat, fish and excellent salads. The vegetarian-eating fellow man was also pampered with surprising dishes. Recommended.
Dear Wil, Thank you for the movies and pictures, very nice!! We really loved your place, hope I will have the opportunity to come again with a group of friends.
Many thanks for the warm welcome and the good care during our stay. We spent the night in the beautiful group accommodation of Hayema Heerd. Inspiring to spend the night in a luxurious way on the straw. We greatly enjoyed our stay, the workshop with the shepherd and the beautiful surroundings. We can heartily recommend the workshop to other organizations that want to learn more about their (internal) cooperation. Our team has learned a lot about leadership roles in which the sheep are a wonderful mirror of our behavior.
