Wer für seinen Urlaub auf der Suche nach absoluter Ruhe ist, dem dürfte die Lage des Bio-Erlebnishofs Grittel an der Grenze von Mecklenburg-Vorpommern zu Brandenburg wirklich gefallen. Das kleine Dorf Grittel zählt nur rund vierzig Einwohner und ein Vielfaches an tierischen Einwohnern. Von daher verspricht ein Aufenthalt auf dem nachhaltigen Erlebnishof jede Menge Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit, wobei die Gastgeber großen Wert darauf legen, ihren Gästen zu zeigen, dass ein Bio-Bauernhof durchaus modern sein kann. Der Gedanke der Nachhaltigkeit findet sich zum Beispiel im Bereich der Energie- und Wärmegewinnung, die mittels Photovoltaik und Solarthermie erfolgt. In einem Dorf, in dem die Tiere in der Mehrheit sind, sind auch weitere tierische Gäste herzlich willkommen. Neben Hunden betrifft das auch Pferde, für die hier ebenfalls eine Unterkunft bereitsteht. Selbstverständlich eignet sich der Bio-Erlebnishof Grittel aber auch ganz klassisch für den Familienurlaub mit Kindern.
About the accommodation
We would like to prove to you that the terms "bio" and "modern" are not mutually exclusive. We, that is the team from the organic farm Grittel in the small village of Grittel. When we talk about small, we really mean it, because there are only 40 inhabitants living in 20 houses. We live in an old farmhouse and run ecological agriculture with suckler cows, ducks, geese and chickens. Some may call it pampa, but we call it attitude to life.
We love and value nature and therefore treat it with respect: many years ago we began to equip the roofs of our buildings with photovoltaic systems in order to produce and use our own electricity. A few years ago, we switched our heating system to a central wood-fired heating system with solar thermal energy and now we use wood from our own forests for heating.
Our organic farm consists of a 250 year old farmhouse with two holiday flats, in which we also live, as well as a former pony farm with three holiday flats on a romantic fenced in property.
In the main house, a farmhouse with the charm of over 250 years, we live and here are also the two holiday flats Bauernstübchen and Weideblick. Here you can take part in the farm life up close if you like. The holiday flats Family, Ponyhof and the apartment are located on the Alte Ponyhof, a romantic courtyard directly opposite. The sauna and horse stables are also located here and invite you to relax in an idyllic atmosphere.
Hiking without meeting someone, beaver, black stork or sea eagle - all this is possible with us. If you like a bit of action, you can try your hand at wheel loader or tractor driving, go on a farm animal safari with picnic through our herd of cattle or go to the organic turkey farm. By the way, you are not only welcome with your dog, we also offer your horse a place on the spacious pasture or in comfortable boxes for your stay on our farm.
Surroundings and activites
If you would like to use your stay with us to simply enjoy the peace and quiet of a community of 40 souls with more animals than people, you will feel at home with us. If you want to do something different every now and then, there are still many possibilities: For example, excursions to the castle in Lenzen or to Lake Rudow, both of which are about ten kilometres away. The wandering dune in Schmölen with its multifaceted flora and fauna and the subsequent coffee drinking in the harbour restaurant in Dömitz are also only 15 kilometres away. This way you won't get bored so quickly. Those who love culture as well as nature are in Ludwigslust and Schwerin with its many attractions. For example, Ludwigsluster Castle is only 25 kilometres away, and its Schwerin counterpart is about 65 kilometres away. But of course both cities have a lot more to offer besides their castles. See for yourself!
Location and getting around
Our courtyard is located about 22 kilometres from the Grabow exit of the A14 motorway, which will take you to the A24 motorway junction Schwerin, which connects Hamburg with Berlin. Thus, people in need of recreation can quickly find their way to us.
The nearest major stations are located in Ludwigslust or Wittenberge. Since public transport is not very frequent, we will be happy to pick you up there after consultation.
