Enjoy a relaxing stay during the WAO in Ermelo

The Veluwe is one of the most beautiful areas to relax. So how nice is it to participate in the WAO and stay overnight with your team in a relaxed setting? At Het Verscholen Dorp you stay in bungalows or chalets on the edge of the Veluwe, just 14 km from the KNHS in Ermelo and a stone's throw from the forest and the Veluwe Lake in Harderwijk. You can bring several dogs in consultation. You walk from Het Verscholen Dorp into the forest and in the immediate vicinity, you will find the off-leash area of the Strokelbos. Should you consider additional activities, fun places like Nunspeet, Zeewolde, and Elburg are also within cycling distance of the park. Can't bring your bike? No problem with us you can rent bikes, possibly with a dog cart. On your return, after a day of intensive competition, you can relax and enjoy a snack and drink at restaurant La Famiglia or on your own terrace of your bungalow, lodge, or chalet.

What previous guests asked us

Are you close to the KNHS venue?

4 km from the KNHS centre, where the World Agility Open is held. This is only a 10-minute car ride away.

Can I walk our dogs in the neighbourhood?

Yes, you can walk straight into the woods from our park. Within walking distance of our holiday park is a lovely nature reserve, the Strokelbos is an off-leash area, where your dog can run free. Definitely worth a visit!

Can I book with several dogs?

During the WAO we make an exception, we know that the dogs participating in this competition are very well-educated and usually sleep in the bench in the car. So feel free to book and write in the comments section that you are participating in the WAO and how many dogs are travelling with you. We will then adjust this in the reservation.
