Like to get away from it all and spend the night in a cheerful and colorful ‘room on wheels’ in the Drenthe countryside? Then come to the Budget B & B of Hippago just outside Elim, a place where you can quickly get rid of everything that goes on and on. Elim is located in the Hoogeveen, Coevorden and Slagharen triangle.

Open in the green season
Our Budget B & B is open from approximately April 15 to October 15. We may open a little earlier or close a little later because the night temperature is pleasant enough to sleep without heating. We have nice warm duvets and there is also a bedspread. It is easy to do at temperatures above 5 degrees.The Budget B & B is really what it says: sleeping and having breakfast at a competitive price in a wonderful environment. Our rooms on wheels are only places to sleep.You can find the toilet and shower in our activity building (50 meters away). Our activity building is open day and night and there is free WIFI. The sanitary facilities are excellent of course!

Breakfast in the budget cafe
You can have your breakfast between 8:30 and 9:30 am (exceptions on demand) in the black and white garden shed: the budget cafe. In the evening you can sit here doing board games or playing cards.

Walking and cuddling with ponies

A fun children’s outing: walking and cuddling with ponies. Is your child infected with the pony virus and still very young? For the little ones who are not yet ready to ride on horseback we have our mini horses Rebby and Fee. They can be brushed by the kids and maybe Rebby will show his tricks! Of course we’ll end the outing with a glass of lemonade and a snack. NB
One hour walking/cuddling with our miniature horses – of course under our supervision – costs € 30,00 (for 1 child). € 5.00 per extra child with a maximum of 4 children in total (and the time will then be up to 1.5 hours). Parents / supervisors of course help to monitor the safety of the children.
