About this listing
Romantic, idyllic house with a big garden in the countryside - only 15 minutes to the beautiful beach in Tisvildeleje and only 45 minutes from Copenhagen by car. One hour and 15 minutes by train to Copenhagen. Also possible to bring your bicycles in the train - if you prefer that.
The house has one parking space.
My grandmothers house is suitable for two adults maybe with one young child. The house has two rooms: The living room with dinner table and chairs, and in the end of the room you find the big double bed - kind of separated from the rest - close to the bathroom. In the other end of the house you find the tv-room with a sofa, where you can relax in the evenings. If you have a little child, we can provide you with a child bed and a tall chair for the table.
There are no stairs in the house which makes it ideal if you are elderly.
The house is located in a small, old village called Nejlinge.
The bathroom is brand new and has a shower and nice heating in the floor if it gets a little cold. Functional, charming kitchen with everything you need for cooking. The house has a wireless internet connection, and you can breathe safely, because this is a totally non smoking house.
Only 10 minutes by car to the city Helsinge, where you can find lot's of supermarkets, small shops, cafés and a few restaurants. A station with trains to Hillerød connecting to Copenhagen. The other direction takes you to Tisvildeleje and the beach in only 15 minutes. It also takes 15 minutes to walk from the station in Helsinge to the house.
Very short distance to a number of North Sealands beautiful attractions, castles, museums, restaurants, stunning beaches and forests and ancient landscapes shaped by the ice age.
The house is in fact the perfect base for day trips in the area. The closest beach is only 25 minutes away by car
You can also use the house for a relaxing vacation without too much action. Then you just go out the door and enjoy the big garden, and if you are lucky, you can say hello to a few red, curious cows on the other side of the fence.
During the summer the garden is full of flowers.
My grandmothers house has been owned by my family since 1954 but even back then, the house was already 100 years old.
When I was a child, we lived next door, and I could run to my grandmother and say hello whenever I wanted. Sometimes she made pancakes in the kitchen and told me stories about her childhood.
My parents are still living next door, and they own My grandmothers house. It is also them who takes care of handing you the keys by arrival, provide you with bedsheets and towels and make sure, there is coffee and tea, a box of cereal, fruit and some milk in the fridge when you arrive. They are really nice people, and my mom knows a thing or two about flowers. Don't hesitate to ask if she is around ;o)
A lot of effort has been put into the house to restore it gently and respectfully during the years. In 2011/2012 the brand new thatched roof was a reality, and now the house is totally up to date with recently decorated rooms, new carpet on the floor and a lot of nice details inside and outside the house.
My grandmother would be proud and glad to see, how charming her house looks now.
Welcome to her house.

Cecilias hus er nøjagtigt så fint og hyggeligt, som det fremgår af beskrivelse og billeder. Nyt bad, veludstyret køkken og komfortable opholdsrum (hvis man ikke hører til de alt for høje). Og så er placeringen et perfekt udgangspunkt for cykelture til skove, søer og mange kulturelle seværdigheder. Vi havde en skøn weekend i og omkring huset og kan kun anbefale det!
Hanns & Tommy were friendly & helpful hosts who have created a warm, clean & welcoming environment. Bedstemors Hus is very comfortable with good amenities, a great bathroom & lovely surroundings. We loved the opportunity to stay in the Danish countryside, especially as the springtime flowers appeared. The local town of Helsinge was a 15 minute walk to good shopping, supermarkets & public transport.
Very helpful host. The house was just as lovely and well-kept as in the pictures! Hope to go back sometime.
We had a very nice stay in this beautiful old house.
The information on the Airbnb website is accurate and pictures are according to reality.
This is lovely cottage, very cosy and full of character. The owners Hanne (Cecilia's mother) could not have been more helpful. Cecilia was also very helpful and got us out of a bind when we were let down by another Airbnber cancelling our booking at very short notice. Cecilia was very quick to respond to any of our queries. We loved our stay and would highly recommend.
Thanks to Hanne and Cecilia.

About the Host, Cecilia
I am a free-spirited person. Love cats. Like to talk, good at listening, patient with people, impatient with injustice and queues in the supermarket. A decent cook when it comes to vegetable soups and home made bread. Love most kinds of music. Hobby photographer, good at writing (in danish).
I have a small useful garden five kilometers away from my home. You can often find me there with my hands in the soil, the sun in my face and with brain waves like a Chinese gardener. It is pure wellness for the soul.
Besides that, I am very much into music. Almost all kinds of music. I play in a small band myself with three other girls. Me behind an primitive drum kit and some percussion while I try to sing at the same time. We play other peoples songs in our own smashing/crashing way. It is great fun - especially for ourselves.
I enjoy the great and fantastic Roskilde Festival every year, where I also work as a volunteer. I write a lot, have my own blog (in danish), and I love my camera.
I have two cats and I adore them. Tom is a Mau, and Ella is a Russian Blue. I can sit and watch them for hours while they are playing, walking around or sleep (on my face).
