This is a beautiful 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). The cottage is for couples, families or groups; whether you wish a peaceful, relaxing holiday or one packed full of activity canoeing or rafting on the lake, fishing, elk hunting, ski-ing, walking, swimming the list is endless..

This spacious 90sqm cottage was recently renovated (2008) and designed for all year round occupancy. The cottage has everything you might expect offering a large open plan kitchen and dining room combination. It has a stove/oven, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, etc. It has a dining table with sofa and chairs offering seating for eight.

A door from the kitchen opens on to a large, raised, south facing sundeck that wraps around two sides of the cottage and looks onto a newly planted orchard, meadow and the village green. The deck is fully furnished, with a barbecue, and is ideal for sunbathing, dining al fresco, or simply sipping a glass of wine and enjoying the tranquil surroundings.

Should the sun get too strong, simply pop down to the beach and cool off with a dip in the lake, which is very child friendly with a shallow sandy section for young children.

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 two bedrooms; one with a double bed, and another with two bunk beds (four 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.

Amenities & services

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.

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 from the deck.

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.

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.
