It gives the visitor's address as

PonyparkCity
Doozemansteeg 1
7798 CH Collendoorn

Postal address is

PonyparkCity
Postbus 33
7776 ZG sl*gharen

Telephone 0523 - 262800

E-mail info at ponyparkcity.nl

 

It seems to be fairly close to the border at Enschede, Amsterdam Schipol is probably the closest airport (about 100 miles). Alternatively Dusseldorf would be slightly further (about 120 miles)

I would suggest telephoning or EMail as English is widely spoken.

Have been there, years ago, just on a day trip to the fun park...which was fun! Airports not sure about as airlines change the routes all the time. We travel to Holland a lot (hubby dutch, so any translation just ask, however as has been said English never a prob) might be worth looking at the dutch companies KLM and transvania (?) have used Ryan air and BMI in the past for regional airports in Holland.

Are you miles from Dover?......Holland isnt that far!

Had a look at the website (I am Dutch). It says that each chalet has its own Shetland pony, an instructor gives free lessons (being cynical, I suppose that should read lessons are included in the price!). The ponies are used to children, who can come and bring the ponies out of the stables, brush them and ride them. During a stay there is also free admission to the Attraction park in sl*gharen. For prices, click on 'Vakantiehuisjes & Reserveren' (underneath Contact) and then in the left hand column, click on Tarieven 2007, then click on 'Klik hier voor een overzicht van de tarievenlijst'. A lot of weeks are already fully booked (VOLGEBOEKT!) from the looks of things. In addition to those prices there is a tourist tax of 2.60 Euro per chalet per night.
As said before, Amsterdam would probably be your best bet, Holland is easy to get around either by car or public transport.
Anything else you want translating, please ask.
Ina.

Thanks Ina, it looks like its not the easiest place to get to by plane, my friends were looking at a short break,  4-5 days in April, but if 2 of those are travelling there and back its hardly worth it.

We're going to Duinrell in Holland at the end of June, much easier to get to,  ferry Newcastle to Amsterdam then drive 30 miles to Duinrell.  Can't wairt

Thanks for all the help folks.
