You will find this holiday park surrounded by three beautiful natural areas: the Mantingerzand with its shifting sands where Scottish Highlanders (Highland cows) graze; the unique landscape of the Geeserstroomgebied; and Mantingerzand, with juniper bushes. The "Bronze Bucket", which has emerged in the Es of Meppen during an excavation, dates from the Bronze Age, providing evidence that this area was an attractive place to live in even in the past. This landmark has given the park its name, being adjacent to the village of Meppen which contains typical thatched-roof farms and large oak trees. Therefore this is a quiet and green area. Not surprising the park is popular with hikers, cyclists, horseback riders, athletes, drivers, active seniors, nature lovers and those seeking a bit of peace and quiet. The beautiful detached Finnish bungalows of the park lie at the edge of the forest. The bungalows have a veranda on the sunny south side and a large garden with outdoor furniture. Because of their location, they offer lots of tranquility and privacy, while the extensive facilities of the park are still close by. The expanded facilities include: swimming pools, sauna, sports field, beach volleyball, all-weather tennis court, boules court, trampoline, sand drifts, various playing fields, car wash, internet option, bicycle rental and a recreation room (plus grazing deer!). The indoor swimming pool, 10 by 20 meters, has a water temperature of 28 °C. The baby pool has a higher water temperature. In sunny weather the sliding glass doors of the pool can be slid open and you have access to the beautiful sun lawn. When the weather allows it the outdoor paddling pool is also open. In the recreation room you’ll find a variety of games like table tennis and football, darts, air hockey and a large screen for video, TV and major sports events. There is something for everyone here, no one will be bored! In the winter months the bungalow is a lovely place to spend your holidays with family and/or friends. When there is snow, cross-country skiing through the beautiful Mepperdennen is possible.
