About this listing
The house was built in 1877, it’s old but cosy – it’s no luxury and not brought up-to-date. It has central heating (not working too well) open fire place & solar-vent. Running water & electricity (but again not up-to-date).
There is a lake outside the door and its deep, so watch out if you bring kids.
If you love nature, and being on your own. Or if you are a family with kids that loves playing in the forest, then it’s really fine.
It’s not recommendable to rent in winter time or if you are very sensitive to fungus.
It’s located in a forest. You have free access (by foot) to the forest, where you (if you are quiet) have tremendous opportunities to see deer and other wild game. You might also se the deer often come to drink from the lake, giving you the opportunity to sit on the terrace and watch them.
We run an Icelandic horse farm just next door, meaning great opportunities for horse back riding. And we are open all year round.
If you are interested in alternative treatments, we can offer that too, along with mediations etc. – here and other places in the neighbourhood.
As a family you might have different interests, the area offers a lot of opportunities, such as:
A friendly beach with swallow water for the younger kids, and a bit further away, bathing jetty or more rough beaches for surfing etc.
Even indoor heated water parks.
Fishing is possible in the fjord, the streams, lakes or put and take.
Walking in the nature.
A fair bit of museums, artist places etc.
Shopping centre within 6 km.
Remember to bring your own linens (sheet, pillow case, duvet covers) – if needed, you can rent (50 kr. / set).
Prices are exclusive consumption of electricity, if you are staying more than one night.
Cleaning fees will only be relevant – if you haven’t cleaned your self.
We love travelling and in fact we met in Australia.
But since we bought this farm, travelling has been cut to a minimum, so now we ask the world to come to us. And we have succeeded in that; it’s very rarely that we are alone!
My husband & youngest son run a building/bricklaying company.
I have an Icelandic horse farm with trailriding and do alternative treatments for both humans & animals.
We have almost 60 hectares, of which around 25 is forest.
We have riding camps, riding holidays etc.
And a couple of houses in the forest, that we rent out.
We have 3 grownups kids and have become grandparents.
Bought this farm in 1999 and are constantly working on improving the buildings and surroundings.
Planes are that more rooms for rent will show up along the way.
