Welcome to us - Nils, Maria & Lila!

We live in a large former artist's home at Hornö jetty, near the High Coast bridge, at the Ångerman River at the beginning of the High Coast.

Stage No 1 of the High Coast Trail starts here. This is a great place to start your high coast experience.

On our site there is a barn that we call the Surströmming barn. A simple barn, where our friends and guests often stay, welcome!

The space
Bring your own line!

The Surströmming barn used to be a loom, but it is said that the previous owner offered surströmming in the barn every Wednesday.

The barn has a bedroom and a table for cozy dinners, in all simplicity!!!

This is not a place to stay for those who need high standards and practicality. This is a place to stay if you want to stay simple but cozy. The barn has electricity, an outdoor kitchen - small fridge, 2 hotplates but no running water. Your guest toilet is in our big house, with it's own entrance. Let me know if you need to borrow ours. There are baths a few 100 meters away.

In the courtyard there is a sauna and outdoor shower with cold water - let us know and we can turn on the sauna.

In the barn there is coffee + coffee maker. We'll give you bottles to take water in.

Feel free to bring your own food and cook in the outdoor kitchen, or go to Restaurant Björkudden out on the cape.

Please note!!! Sheets are not included. Please let me know if you haven't brought anything. Most people who stay with us have either sleeping bags or their own travel sheets. Duvet and pillow are available of course.

Cleaning not included! Please sweep and leave nicely after you, thank you:)

If you have any questions, please let me know! Welcome!

Where you’ll be

Sandöverken, Västernorrlands län, Sweden

In the southern High Coast, the beginning of Ådalen, between the river and coast.

Nyadal is located between Majorsviken and Ångermanälven, near the High Coast Bridge.

Stage 1 of the High Coast trail goes here.

We have about 800 meters to Björkudden Hotel and restaurant. They serve good and good locally anchored food, highly recommended. They also have a beautiful outdoor seating area overlooking the river and the bridge, for example for an evening glass or a simple lunch.

The nearest store is in Nora.
Nearest pizzeria in Klockestrand.
Nearest Systembolaget in Kramfors

At Hornö brygga 200m away we swim and further along the river are several excellent bathing areas.

At Hornö jetty there are boat berths, guest jetty.
