Excellent service, peace and quite in Swedish wildlife, amazing salt water outdoor pool and friendly people.
What a great find, this cottage hasn't been available to rent for long, it is on a forest farm estate stretching 16 acres. The current owners are from the UK and bought it last year. The cottage is very charming and cosy, it is surrounded by fields and trees. We saw elks, deer, foxes, cranes, eagles and all kinds while there. The cottage has everything you need, including comfy beds and everything you could want in the kitchen. There is a great raised decking area outside and the hosts provide a BBQ for you to use, it seems they have thought of everything to make sure your trip goes well and smoothly. They left us all kinds of goodies when we got here, including fresh fruit and chocolates. There are lots of little touches which make your stay there extra special. Remember to take your own towels though, especially if you are thinking of making use of the fantastic salt water pool. The cover is left on when it is a bit cooler or windy, meaning you can swim even when the weather isn't great. When the cover is back it is magical experience, as my wife put it, being surrounded by fields and forest as you swim about in the pool with the elks watching you. This place is like finding a little piece of heaven. It is especially good if you like wildlife and peaceful surroundings. It is only 10 minutes from the lake where there is a beach, children's play area and a cafe.
We really enjoyed our stay and we would like to return again next year. The hosts were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. They left us to enjoy our holiday, but were there if we needed them for anything and they always did their best to help in anyway they could. Because the hosts haven't had the cottage for long, it does mean some areas around the outside could still do with some work, but it is purely cosmetic, done of which caused us any problems and we know the hosts are putting a lot of effort into getting it into tip top condition for future guests. The inside of the cottage was clean and tidy and on the outside we had ample parking space and our own private garden over looking fields and the forest. This place is a real gem.
