Lelymare is situated in the organic agriculture area near Lelystad, where agricultural products are organically grown and processed. We develop the fields of Lelymare (about 5 hectares) as naturally as possible. There are groves in the pastures and the horses enjoy the natural lake. Around the meadows are trails and guests are free to look around at the stables.
Within walking distance of Lelymare you find the Zuigerplaspark of almost 300 hectares. The park offers a large lake and a variety of lawns, trees and bushes. You can easily spend some time having fun and relaxing.
Right in the Zuigerplaspark is the biggest and most adventurous play wood in the Netherlands, the Belevenissenbos, an adventure forest of 25 hectares full of opportunities for children from 6 to 16 years to experience nature.
The history of the Oostvaardersplassen is astounding. When in 1968 the Flevopolder was dry ground, this wet part remained unused. Nature took her chance and there was a swamp with ponds, reed beds and willow forests.
Oostvaardersplassen now constitute the largest wetland area in the Netherlands. Nature has free rein here. The hundreds of Heck cattle, Konik horses and red deer give the area an almost un-Dutch appearance.
The Oostvaardersplassen is also rich in birds of prey. But the Oostvaardersplassen is best known for the white-tailed eagle, which nests since 2006.
You find more information about the origin and the surprising nature of the this area on the website Oostvaardersplassen.
