Further details indoors

There is a collection of English speaking toys, games and books provided for both children and adults, in our library.

If required a cot and high chair can be arranged upon request.

Internet access via mobile broadband can be rented.

Further details outdoors

Outside, there is ample space to play. The large meadow is great for the odd game of football or superb playing area for kids whilst the adults watch.

The beach is a short walk away, and perfect for a refreshing swim during summer. The bottom of the lake bottom is sandy and slopes gently, offering a safe place for young children to play in the water. The Village Association maintains the beach to ensure it remains a child-friendly bathing area with a sandy beach, jetty, changing room and barbeque grill. Experience the natural beauty of Kolforsen; barbecue, fish, swim, sunbathe or just watch the kids play in the sand.

Many local residents own boats, rafts, canoes etc on the lake and you will never be short of advice on where or when to fish or an invitation to join them out on the water.

There is also a sauna and hot tub available on the beach. The sauna is a great place for warming up frozen fingers and toes in winter. It is a place for relaxation, tranquillity and deep thought. The 'hot tub', can be used every season. When it is freezing in the winter or on a delicious summer evening: it is always enjoyable! Enjoy with family or friends the hot tub: feel the warm water for your body; listen to the sound of the crackling wood in the stove; inhale air of free nature; talk with each other in the light of the moon or by romantic candlelight...

The hot tub is the best place to watch the sun setting beyond the trees, listening to the sounds of nature, and thinking that the world is an amazing and beautiful place, after all.

All around are pine forests and hills, rivers and lakes. Perfect for walking, riding, biking, swimming, rafting, canoeing/boating in summer, cross-country and downhill skiing in winter. Depending on the season, you can go wild berry or mushroom picking. Elks are a common site on the village road and deer are frequently seen around the cottage.

Bikes, a boat and a canoe are available for guest use. There is excellent fishing including pike, perch, etc.

In the winter exciting adventures such as dog sledging, snow mobile rides, ski-ing (both cross-country and downhill), sledging or more relaxing alternatives such as ice fishing are available.

This is a country-side property and as such a car is the most convenient way to get around. If however, you only wish to stay put in the cottages there are frequent trains to Ockelbo station, but no public transport to the cottages exist in the summer so you need to rely on taxis.

“An action packed winter adventure or complete tranquility, whatever you want!”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2011

We did loads of winter adventure things, which the whole family loved. It was a lot better than being in Lapland as things were not so big and commercial. Everything was sorted out for us in advance by the owners when we told them what we wanted to do, so no hassles. We went husky sledding and they were great with children and really friendly. Snowmobiling was equally fun and the children still talk about it. The accommodation was a beautiful cabin in a village and was really warm at all times despite the cold outside, a great plus was a barbecue hut outside which the children loved. The children are really determined that they want to go back again.

“The perfect family getaway”

Reviewed 30 May 2011

We stayed in Kolforsen for two weeks in July 2010 and had the most fantastic holiday. The village is in a forest, by a lake, and is the ideal getaway from city life. My two kids (then aged 12 and 7) loved the freedom they had to play outdoors whenever it suited them. The weather was very warm, so regular trips to the lake were a must! The beach is perfect, clean and very child friendly. A day rafting on the lake provided much laughter all round. Dinner at the beach using the bbq was fantastic. Accomodation was ideal for us, clean and with all requirements met. Evening meals in the bbq hut were a wonderful experience. Ocklebo itself is a nice small town, with the supermarket providing all you need for a self catering stay and is within easy driving distance. We spent most of our holiday relaxing by the lake, as well as walking and cycling, and also visited Furuvik park which provides a great day out for adults and children alike. The owners of the Kolforsen cottages are lovely people and nothing is too much trouble for them. They are great at giving advice on anything you need to know about, and the cottage contained lots of brochures for activities, and hints and tips to make your stay enjoyable. To those who have never visited Sweden before I'd say go to Kolforsen, see the countryside, meet the Swedes and escape from every day life. A holiday here can be as relaxed or as active as you make it, but you will definitely benefit from life in the great outdoors. We can't wait to go back!

“A fantastic place to stay and explore rural Sweden”

Reviewed 28 May 2011

We stayed in the smaller cottage in Ockelbo in January and had a fantastic holiday. Agneta was unbelievably helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The house itself was very modern, clean and comfortable, and despite the fact it was very cold outside, we were nicely snug at all times. We had organised through Agneta to go snowmobiling and then dog sledging but due to the thawing ice couldn't go snowmobiling. However, the dog sledging trip has to be one of the best experiences of our lives as is using the sauna and hot tub in such stunning surroundings. We would very much like to go back and visit with friends during summer.

“Amazing!!”

Reviewed 27 May 2011

We had such a lovely time at the Red Cottage, it was everything that we wanted. The cottage is so quiet and cosy at winter, you can go outside and lay in the snow and look at up at the stars then dash back in to a lovely roaring fire to warm up. Agneta & Sharon can arrange anything you want and are available as much or as little as you want to provide info or organise adventures. we loved going up the big hill on the sledges, the skoodles, the walk to the lake in the freezing cold, the ice hockey ;-), the Christmas market and most of all how friendly everyone is in the village and also the supermarket and tourist information. We cant wait to go back! Thanks Sharon and Agneta! orfa-sida!!!!
