Come and discover the Ursula Estate in Nieuwveen. Accessible to everyone and part of Ipse de Bruggen, a care institution for people with intellectual disabilities. We are there for people with a (slightly) mental or a (serious) multiple disability. People who cannot "participate" in our society on their own. We support them in all activities: living and working, learning and recreation. Walk, cycle or drive quietly (max. 20 km) onto the terrain and follow the signs to Villa Kakelbont. This is a special tea house on the edge of the beautiful children's farm the Schaapskooi, surrounded by greenery, water and surprising nature. The estate with its extensive walking area is a nice place to get a breath of fresh air and while the children play in the playground or with the animals you can enjoy a snack on the terrace. Special staff members work in our teahouse: people with intellectual disabilities who are proud of their work and are happy to show you. Employees of the Ipse de Bruggen foundation guide them. Together we ensure excellent quality and service. The teahouse is open Monday to Friday from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM, Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 AM to 4:30 PM The De Schaapskooi children's farm is freely accessible to the public throughout the week. De Schaapskooi is a children's farm where children and animals still really come into contact with each other. In addition to our own clients and their families, many people from the surrounding villages come to enjoy the animals and the beautiful surroundings of the children's farm. The management is in the hands of clients and supervisors of Ipse de Bruggen. From Monday to Friday, clients of the daily activities work here with great pride and pleasure. At the weekend, we depend on volunteers who take care of the work and supervision of the children's farm.

At the very back of the site is Garden Group the Elephant, where our clients grow plants and vegetables under supervision. Here they learn everything about green maintenance and also make beautiful objects, such as decorations of old bicycle tires, bird food products. Clients are very proud of their work and are happy to show you. This garden center is open from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. In the weekend there are all kinds of things from the garden center for sale at the teahouse. Next to the Elephant is our mini campsite Het Groene Hart. Our VEKABO campsite consists of twelve separate camping spots and two camping bungalows that are comparable to hikers' cabins. Dogs are not permitted on the entire site, with the exception of service dogs in function. Reserve via:

If you are on your way back then you can also walk in (from Monday to Friday) at our Bakkerij Boekje of own dough, with the tastiest cookies, cakes and cakes and 't Spinnenweb a creative gift shop with homemade gifts, textiles, candles and cards also all made by clients of the day care.
