Description from owner


This is a cosy cottage located in a secluded village, with a beautiful child friendly beach, offering wood-heated outside sauna and hot-tub “bathing barrel” right by the water's edge (available for hire). It is an excellent place for a family, who want to experience Swedish countryside, or couples wanting a quiet, romantic retreat, whilst still being nearby major attractions. Whether you wish a peaceful, relaxing holiday or one packed full of activity – canoeing or rafting on the lake, fishing, elk hunting, skiing, walking, swimming – the list is endless..

The 45sqm cottage was recently renovated and designed for all year round occupancy. The cottage has everything you might expect offering an open plan kitchen and dining room combination. It has a stove/oven, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, etc. It has a dining table offering seating for five.

It is located on the village green with nice sunny surroundings and the lawn is perfect for playing games on or simply sitting and enjoying the peace and tranquillity. When the nights become chilly, you can retreat to your own barbecue house complete with reindeer skins. The cottage also has a carport with engine heater.

Further details

The owners are British/Swedish and are always happy to help you with suggestions to enrich your visit or to leave you in peace.

Whatever you choose to do whilst here, whether it is your first visit to Sweden or a returning one, we hope to make your stay with us special to you, and that you will return home with the happiest of memories.

*****We will take smokers but they cannot smoke in doors*****

Further details indoors

There is a collection of English speaking videos and DVDs, as well as toys, games and books provided for both children and adults, and you can borrow more from our library. If you let us know the age groups coming, we can provide a suitable selection.

The living room has a corner sofa, coffee table, and a TV, DVD/VCR and CD player. For ambience, you can enjoy listening to the sparking of the open fire in the traditional style fireplace (wood provided foc).

The cottage has one bedroom with bunk beds (3 persons). The sofa in the living room converts into a double bed. There are blackout blinds on the windows to keep them dark during the long, light Swedish summer nights. If required a cot and high-chair can be arranged upon request. There are also opportunities to borrow books, DVDs, videos and games for both children and adults. Bed linen and towels are also included.

It has a tiled bathroom furnished with a shower and WC.

Further details outdoors

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

The beach is a short walk away, and perfect for a refreshing swim during summer. The lake bottom here is sandy and slopes gently, offering a safe place for young children to play in the water. The Village Association maintain the beach to ensure it remains a child-friendly bathing area with a sandy beach, jetty, changing room and barbecue 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 were 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 enjoying! 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, rivers and lakes. Perfect for walking, riding, biking, swimming, rafting, canoeing or boating in summer, cross-country and downhill skiing in winter. Depending on the season, you can go wild berry or mushroom picking in the surrounding forest. Elks are a common site on the village road and deer are frequently seen around the cottage.

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

If things get too quiet it is not far to big cities like Gavle and Sandviken and only 2 hours away from Stockholm.
