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 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.
