A lovely farm cottage, ideally located as a pit stop between many of the main attractions. 15 minutes for the ring road. Located on a farm, operated by the farmers. Experience a real Icelandic farm away from the crowds.

The space
This unique little country cottage was built in 1920, refurbished and extended in 1968 and has been well kept ever since. It is about 120 square meters and divides into 3 bedrooms, a living room, hallway and dining room, a bathroom and a kitchen. There is a large patio outside the living room.
Surrounding it is a large, fairytale-like garden full of old trees and various plants.
The house used to be the family home where 3 generation lived and breathed for over 50 years. It is a special little house which we greatly care about and are delighted to be able to offer to our guests and share this little piece of heaven.
Please note that there is no wifi but guests can walk 200m to our other guesthouse to get wifi.
Please also note that we are located on a farm 18km from the nearest town, Hella.
Our house is ideally located close to many of the main attractions of the South such as the Golden circle (45min), black beach of Vík (1hr), Seljalandsfoss (30min), Skógafoss (40min), Landmannalaugar, Þórsmörk etc.
