Hi All

If Covid allows we are planning to visit Holland in early January for 4-6 weeks, can anyone recommend places and/or campsites to visit.

Cheers

Dave

It's not that big Dave. Maybe a weekend will do.

We cross Harwich-Hook of Holland: more expensive than Channel but saves a couple of hundred miles plus QE2 crossing. We travel at 9am and enjoy a cruise with drinks and sandwiches. The rear lounge is most comfortable.

First night is Gouda (€ [EIGHT EURO - don't know why I'm getting an emoji!] or Breda (€4).

We like the marina at Almere Haven and have spent several nights there. Excellent showers. (€12.50)

We have friends in Baarn and Hilversum: Utrecht is a good place with a lovely flower market and a rail museum.

Almen is right beside a canal basin (€12.50) with a pub/restaurant.

Lauwersoog has a calming site on the edge of a lagoon (€15), built as part of a flood defence system.

Harlingen is a good overnight stop on the edge of the river (€7.50) with an easy walk into a lovely town with an interesting history.

The marina at Gorinchem (€10) is right alongside the Rhine and can be noisy from river traffic. It is a steady run back to HoH for the afternoon ferry and has cheap fuel.

Enjoy - Gordon

EDIT for emoji!

It has got to include Amsterdam and particularly the Rijksmuseum that could take you 3 days alone. It is one of the greatest in Europe and has a collection of fine art to rival the Prado.

I forgot to mention Schokland, a fascinating spot and reasonably off the tourist track.

We have travelled in the Netherlands

Unfortunately we don’t keep a a record of our travels

We just meander

We liked the Dutch, and their English was great as our Dutch wasn’t

Loved the windmills , the islands

But I’m not sure January is a good time to visit

But then again who knows

Was surprised how Rotterdam has changed over the years...some amazing buildings!

An enormous covered market surrounded by flats.....literally!

As a general tip we often use mini campings...small sites, small prices and numerous.
