Rent a cottage in the idyllic Småland
As one of our guests, you’ll step into the history of small-scale farming with old native Swedish breeds on your doorstep in the summer months. The houses are simple with old-fashioned charm. Sit on the steps, let the children run free and enjoy a relaxing morning coffee.
Each house has its own unique history and has been carefully renovated over the years to preserve old details and install new modern facilities, including electricity and water. The rooms are self-catered, but sheets and towels, breakfast and cleaning can be booked, and a shared laundry room is available in Prästgården’s outbuilding.
The village is a car-free area (only those who work here are permitted to drive within the reserve), so children can run freely between the houses, the play barn and the Leket play area, which together with the farm museum, hiking trails and barbecue areas are open all year round. If they’re lucky, they may run into one of the keepers and have a chance to feed the animals. Pets are welcome in all our cottages.
