Cosy cottage, Countryside
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
A clean, comfortable, and charming typical Swedish cottage located in a small village located just 10 minutes away from the town of Linköping. The vibrant 19th century, red and white cottage is placed smack dab in the middle of Östergötland farm fields. With renovations taking place just 5 years ago this gem offers a quiet location for travelers to rest and relax.
The cottage is divided into an entryway, living room, full kitchen and a half bath. The living room has two 90 cm twin beds, a chair, a desk, a big LCD-TV and a charming fully functional fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready to be cooked in if you decide to dine in.
The half bath has a sink and toilet. While there is a shower, it is located in the attic and therefore is only available during the warmer periods of the year.
Upon request we also provide up to three tent beds/semi confy beds at a additional cost of 50 sek/bed.
The cottage is a strictly non-smoking and peaceful location and we appreciate it that way, so if you are looking for parties and nightlife we recommend that you stay in Linköping.
The location of the cottage offers a number of outdoor nature activities. Only 100 meters away there is a nice lake. Beach access is approximately 1 km away. The nearby forests are great for leisurely walks and can also tease your taste buds with berries to pick at the end of the summer and delicious chanterelle mushrooms in the fall. If you like horse riding there is a big equestrian center with icelandic horses with tour riding arranged in the nice surroundings. We will help you to book the tour and you dont need any excperience.
Other outdoor activities and family attractions nearby include the famous Göta Kanal, which was hand dug in the 19th century and connects the west and east of Sweden, an old Viking burial ground and rune stone, and a very old church. The burial ground and church are only a short drive down the road.
The cottage is perfect for a couple and could accommodate a small family with children. There are two big tourist magnets for families nearby: Kolmården Zoo (Scandinavias biggest) approx. 45 minute car ride North and "Astrid Lindgrens Värld" approx 1 hour south of us.
The easiest way to get to the University/City is by car (10 min) or by the bus (20 min). The bus stop is right outside the cottage but only offers 10 rides a day, in both directions, and if you need to travel to the university you have to switch buses. ((website hidden))
The location is also very suitable for travelers looking for easy access to the highway E4, which is just 7 minutes away or for travelers needing a place to stay before an early flight out of the Linköping Airport (10-15 min), which offers daily flights to Copenhagen (SAS/Nextjet) and Amsterdam Schiphol (KLM). The nearby train station in Linköping also lets travelers reach Stockholm in less then two hours and Copenhagen in three hours. There is also a 90 mins bus connection from Linköping direct to Stockholm/Skavsta several times a day. Stockholm/Skavsta is a Ryanair Hub for Sweden with tons of destinations in Europe and North Africa.
