Yes, well behaved dogs and pets are welcome to stay with us. However, it is important that you announce that you have a dog / pet with you when you make your reservation, since animals are not allowed in all rooms. On our farm we have dogs, cats, goats and chickens, so it is important that your dogs are kept leashed and supervised during their stay.

We have some rooms in the B&B wing where pets are never allowed. Pets are not allowed in common areas such as the kitchen, the breakfast room either.
On the farm, however, there are cats, dogs, goats and chickens, so if you are very sensitive, the overall environment might be a bit challenging.

Is the guest house accessible for handicapped ?

All guest rooms and apartments are on the ground floor and there is a ramp up to the entrance, so there are no challenging stairs in the building. However, the rooms are quite small and therefore there is not much room for maneuvering a wheelchair in the guests rooms. The garden consists mainly of lawns and the courtyard is covered with a single, so the groundwork is varied and not hard.

Feel free to ask if you have any questions or concerns about accessibility – we will be happy to help!

Do you have bikes for rent?

We have nice (3-gear) bikes, perfect for “picnic cycling”, to rent. There is also a child seat and towed kids’ bikes if you want to bike with the family. Helmets are of course included and we have maps to borrow with tips on varied routes with nice picnic stops, swimming lakes etc.

It is about a kilometer’s walk from the guest house down to the national park where you find Naturum, the hiking trails and a restaurant. It is a nice quiet walk along a meadow with grazing sheep.

Do you have a venue to rent?

Vi har en fin festlokal som rymmer upp till 60 gäster. We have a nice venue that can accommodate up to 60 seated guests. This venue is only rented out together with the guest house’s overnight facilities, which makes it best suited for events where you are many overnight guests.
