Dinner in a hut at Park7

Dinner in a hut at Park7 : a unique experience  :

“The 7 huts.”

Our seven huts have been built by ourselves, and there is one for each room. They are located about 50 meters from Park7 in our permaculture orchard.

The huts are heated by a wood-burning stove and are lit by candlelight. There is no electricity. You dine on wooden benches which have been covered with sheepskin. Each hut also has its own outside table which can be used in summertime.

A unique experience

Dining in the candlelight with a wood stove, without any electricity, creates a beautiful, intimate, and romantic atmosphere. This ‘rewilding’ or ‘back to the basics’ experience is also 100% corona proof. There is no staff present, as the main course (which has been ordered in advance) is heated up by yourself on the wooden stove. You also light the fire and the candles yourself. (Unless you have asked us in advance to do it for you, which we can do at a fee.

We have 7 incredible, amazing private huts. They are heated with a small wooden stove, and everything is lit by candlelight. There is no electricity. You sit on wooden benches and sheepskins. Each hut has its own table and bench outside, allowing you in the summer to eat outside and to warm up the main course inside. There are no staff present. Ordered meals and water bottles are placed outside the hut on a table. It’s up to you to light the stove and the candles (unless you have opted for preheating (at an additional cost of €15).

If you order a dinner, but prefer to bring your own drinks, this is possible, and we request a 13 € “corkage fee” per person.

The caterer asks us to order your menu 10 days before your arrival. We close meal orders for the next 8 days every Friday. There also is a prepayment fee, which is non-refundable if you cancel less than 10 days in advance.

Our caterar  designed a simpel but excellent 3-course menu for the Park7 huts, which includes: 3 cold appetizers in verrines, to share with biscuits in your hut. A main dish (consisting of either poultry for 2 people, or fish for 2 people) to be heated in a cast iron pan, on the small wood stove. Two cold desserts. The exact ingredients vary from week to week, depending on the market and the inspiration of the chef. We therefore can’t give you more details.

We sadly cannot cater for food allergies (gluten, sugar, lactose, etc.).

Bring a warm coat (for the walk outside and while waiting for the stove to heat up) and above all good solid walking shoes, because you are eating in an orchard and the ground can be muddy. You don’t have to wear fancy clothes, after all you are staying in the countryside and sitting on wooden benches with sheepskins during dinner. After dinner in the hut, please leave your shoes at the entrance inside Park7

The huts are waterproof.

The temperature can rise to 25-30° (about 1 hour after lighting the stove), so it takes an hour to heat the hut up, keep that in mind.

There is a fire extinguisher and a CO2 detector in each hut, the door is a simple curtain that lets air through. The huts are therefore perfectly ventilated. The table is disinfected daily with bleach. A hydroalcoholic gel is at your disposal.

In principle, you can do it yourself. It’s easy and we’ll explain it to you when you arrive, but for the first hour you must watch the stove ± every 10 minutes and reload it regularly. There is enough wood and coal in the hut, as well as matches and zips (which are in a Tupperware which must be closed after opening, because of the humidity).

At your request by email, we can preheat the hut and light the candles for you (for a fee of 15€)
