Great location

Get close to nature at Bessastaðir. Cozy old house with warm character, big garden, many bird species around. The view is magnificent all year round, amazing sunset and sunrise. The house is close to the sea and it is very nice to take walk to there and listen to the mysterious sound of the sea and seabirds. You are also free to take walk around our land, as long as you are not walking on our hay fields.

The space
The house was built 1937 and completely renewed 1984, it was again renewed the year 2016.
The house has two stair's. One short leads you to the kitchen, dining room and bedroom, the other leads you downstairs to two bedrooms and living room with tv and sofas. On the ground floor is entrance, small hallway and bathroom.
We want you to be careful around our animals and the wild animals, so they can live their normal life. We are training horses so when you see us on horseback or rounding the horses, please give us our space, specially when you are driving.
Some birds are nesting in the garden and around, when the young birds are coming from the nests they often walk on the road. Then you have to be careful when you are driving, so they won't get killed by the car.
Some of our fences have electricity, so be careful not to touch them. And if you open a gate somewhere, always close it again, because the gates and fences are to keep our animals on their right places.
