Baarland

Scheldeoord belongs to Baarland, which is about 2 kms away and the closest place to the campsite.

A pretty little village with around 600 inhabitants, with beautiful old houses and farmhouses, a “vaete” (a former watering place for cattle) and the foundations of the former medieval Hellenburg castle. Unfortunately, the castle itself was destroyed by a storm surge in the 15th century. Slot Baarland, another castle in the village, is privately owned and is open to the public several times a year.

The other villages around Scheldeoord are also small and pleasant and very nice to visit during a walking and/or cycling tour. Goes is the closest town, about 15 kms away.
