The Schelphoek – Zeeland

This centre is located in a unique location in the middle of a nature reserve in a former annex of a farm. The property consists of two buildings. The main building contains of a dining room, kitchen and 2 bedrooms on the ground floor. On the upper floor is a large study/presentation room with library. In the second building are 4 bedrooms. A few tents can be placed on the site. The nature reserve ‘De Schelphoek’ is an ideal base for researching the coast, the beach and the dunes.

The Schelphoek nature reserve was created after the flood disaster of 1953. Southwest of Serooskerke, one of the largest dike breaks in the disaster area occurred, which could only be overcome with difficulty. After the huge dyke gap was closed, peace returned. The former disaster site is now a varied nature reserve with water, riparian lands and beautifully landscaped woodlands. These woodlands mainly consist of ash, but also oak, elm, poplar and black alder. Schelphoek was assigned to Staatsbosbeheer.
