Welcome to the land of windmills, tulip fields, clog-wearing farmers, cheese-making, sand dunes and dykes – not to mention wonderfully flat countryside that’s so easy to explore by bike.
Holland, however, offers so much more than the images we can all recollect from those childhood storybooks. This is a compact country with beautiful towns and cities, spectacular lakes and mile-after-mile of peaceful canals.
The home of The Hague, the old university town of Leiden, as well as historic Amsterdam, with its ancient merchant houses, Holland is also the birthplace of the great painters, Rembrandt and Van Gogh. Plus with such a rich culture, such fascinating cities and such a lovely landscape, Holland is the perfect choice for an active family holiday.
Just two miles from a sandy beach, and only thirty miles north of Amsterdam, the Keycamp parc at Wassenaar is ideally placed. Adjacent to a thrilling waterpark, there’ll be no shortage of things for the kids to do.
Amsterdam retains much of the traditional charm and character from when it was a city of wealthy traders and merchants. Bicycles are still a favoured way of getting around and tall narrow brick houses look over a picturesque network of canals lined by trees. The city’s canal bikes provide a fun way of seeing the sights. Plus you’ll find many opportunities for sightseeing by waterbus. Amsterdam is also a city of brightly coloured markets and these provide a wonderful way of picking up all sorts of local produce.
Sitting alongside the Rhine, Leiden is perhaps best known as being the birthplace of Rembrandt. This old university town has several excellent museums, as well as the ‘Pieterskerk’, a towering brick church. Plus, quite amazingly, windmills still reach above the city’s skyline. In the historic centre you will find cobbled streets, fascinating shops and tree-lined canals.
Founded in the 13th Century, The Hague is well-known for its status as a diplomatic capital, as well as for being the venue of many war crime trials. There’s lots more to The Hague, however, than legislature and law. An elegant coastal town, with lovely parks, canals, and the seaside resorts of Scheveningen and Kijkduin, The Hague is a place of spectacular summer festivals and concerts. An international sand sculpture festival is also held here during spring and summer.
Originating from this charming town, the distinctive blue and white Delftware porcelain is famous worldwide and can be purchased at the Royal Delft De Porceleyne Fles, a factory dating back to the 17th Century. There are also factory tours which provide an insight into how the pottery is made. An exceptionally cosmopolitan city, Delft hosts numerous exhibitions and events throughout the year.
The location of our holiday parc, Wassenaar is an historic town with a 12th Century church. Some remains of the ‘Atlantic Wall’ still exist on Wassenaar’s beach and a network of underground tunnels serves as a bat sanctuary. The town is home to the Duinrell theme park and Duindigt horseracing track.
Next to the Keycamp parc at Wassenaar, entry to the exciting Duinrell Theme Park, with its fabulous waterpark, is free to all our customers.

Home to some of the finest art galleries in the world. A trip to Rembrandt’s home, which is now a museum, the Museum Het Rambrandthuis, will take you right back to the mid 17th Century when the master was at work. While in the Van Gogh Museum, over 800 paintings by the artist are on display. If you’re holidaying with school-age children, take a look at the amazing Anne Frank Huis.
In springtime the Dutch landscape becomes a blaze of colour, when millions of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths burst into life. If visiting in spring, it’s well worth touring the blooming bulb fields.
You simply can’t holiday in Holland without visiting the original home of Edam cheese. Edam is a small and charming town that is interspersed with canals. You can visit an exhibition on cheese-making at the old Kaasmarkt. Elsewhere in the Dutch countryside you will find local cheese farms where it is possible to learn the art of the cheese-maker and sample the results!
Colourful Christmas markets are something of a Dutch tradition and provide a wonderful excuse for an out-of-season break and to stock up on all manner of tasty local produce. Keycamp have a number of mobile homes with extra insulation that are available to book in December and February. They provide a cosy, self-catering base for visiting the Christmas markets and other seasonal attractions.
Koningshof is a great family parc with an authentic Dutch atmosphere. Facilities include three pools and its location means good access to Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
