VISITOR INFORMATION

Furry friends

We have pet dogs on all our premises. They are not allowed inside our facilities, but are very playful and friendly and might come say hello to newfound friends.

A bug’s life

We have open fields, woods and lots of water bodies on the farm, which is the perfect breeding ground for bugs! Please be prepared to be bugged. We provide mosquito repellent in our rooms, but if you’re allergic or sensitive to bites or stings, please bring whatever you need to use as precaution.

Best foot forward

Don’t have high hopes for your high heels! Our outdoor venue premises and surrounding areas are farmlands, fields, grass and gravel. Dress for the occasion, and the environment.

Breezy weather

Even during summer times, the weather might be surprisingly cool. Better have something warm, especially for the evenings. A famous Swedish proverb holds: There ain’t no bad weather, just the wrong clothes.

A working farm

We are a full-time working agricultural farm. The farm elements and animals will enrich your farm stay experience, but please be aware that workers and vehicles will be active during your stay.

Shared yard & playground

Although every house has its own 'kuier area', when you book the Guest House, you will be sharing the yard with the friendly owners Johan & Christelle and their 2 little girls and 2 dogs. All guests with children are invited to make use of the amazing playground in this space - we love sharing our space!
