The Nutchel camp rules - here's what you should know

Here are some guidelines for what you definitely should and shouldn't do during your stay with Nutchel at our new forest camp Les Ardennes!

Light and warmth

There’s very little artificial light on the domain, which is a very conscious choice so we disrupt the ecosystem as little as possible. In the cabins light is created via oil lamps and candles, oh so cosy! In the cabin you will find instructions on how to turn on the oil lamps. To get around at night, it’s best to use a flashlight or the LED lamp that you find in your cabin.
Our Cosy Cabins are heated with a wood stove, which means you need to find your inner Neanderthal and start fetching some wood! Just kidding - we've done the fetching for you. When you arrive in the cabin there will be some wood to get you started, and when you run out you will find more wood in the woodshed. Instructions on how to get your wood stove started can be found in the cabin.


One of our forest camp's greatest assets is it’s peaceful atmosphere. Please respect this tranquility, so everyone (including the animals!) can fully enjoy the magic of the location. It would be a pity to scare away the singing birds ;) We also kindly ask you to be extra quiet after 10:30 pm, so both your human and animal neighbours can sleep peacefully.
No cars


We kindly ask you to leave your car at the parking at the entrance of the forest camp. Upon arrival you can park your car near the Chalet where you will check-in. Upon arrival we will bring you and your luggage with an electric cart to your Cosy Cabin. During your stay you either walk or take a bike to move around, the distances aren’t that far. After check-in we kindly ask you to move your car to the large parking area at the entrance of the forest camp, near the bridge.

Cosy Chalet/Tipi

In the centre of the forest camp you will find the Cosy Chalet/Tipi: a central gathering place with a welcoming area and cosy places to sit. From 2pm to 6pm you can join us for a lovely cup of coffee, tea and a slice of cake. There's also an honesty shop where you can find some local products to buy!

Inside you can get cosy around the wood fire with a glass of wine or a hot chocolate. We have a little library with interesting books to read, and there's a kids play area where they can get creative! You will also find board games, comic books, crayons and pencils, and a number of outdoor games.

There's a seating area outside, and to top it all off there's a fire pit where we organise magical storytelling evenings.
