Further details indoors

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.

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 one bedroom with bunk beds (3 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. If required a cot and high-chair can be arranged upon request. There are also opportunities to borrow books, DVDs, videos and games for both children and adults. Bed linen and towels are also included.

It has a tiled bathroom furnished with a shower and WC.

Further details outdoors

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.

All around are pine forests, rivers and lakes. Perfect for walking, riding, biking, swimming, rafting, canoeing or boating in summer, cross-country and downhill skiing in winter. Depending on the season, you can go wild berry or mushroom picking in the surrounding forest. Elks are a common site on the village road and deer are frequently seen around the cottage.

Bikes, a boat, a canoe and raft are available for guest use. There is excellent fishing including pike, perch, etc.

If things get too quiet it is not far to big cities like Gavle and Sandviken and only 2 hours away from Stockholm.

Location description from owner

The Midnight Sun Coast region

With over 200,000 lakes, 27 million hectares of forest, tens of thousands of islands, and 1700 national parks and nature reserves including Europe's largest protected area, Sweden is the perfect choice for wildlife and outdoor holidays.

What’s more, it is readily accessible from the UK, an easy country to travel in, thanks to the well-developed public transport infrastructure and the fact that almost everyone speaks excellent English, plus the country has a reputation for being clean, safe and politically stable. So put away your preconceptions about Sweden.

While much of Sweden does indeed provide fairytale winter conditions, summer in Sweden is also a glorious experience, with the country having a temperate climate in spite of its northerly location thanks to the Gulf Stream. There is usually less rain and more sunshine during summer than in Britain. Summer temperatures rise to the high twenties.

Many visitors to Sweden for the first time are astonished to discover such a vast majestic landscape with enormous expanses of pristine wilderness and breathtaking scenery, yet so close and accessible from the hustle and bustle of central Europe. Sweden is an easy country to travel in, the roads are an absolute delight, sometimes you can literally see for miles and there is very little traffic in the north of the country. Sweden enjoys one of the highest standards of living in the world and a quality of life to go with it.

Eating out is generally of a much higher standard than in the UK and do not expect to pay over the odds. Indeed, it is a gross misconception that Sweden is an expensive country to visit –this belief originated in the 80’s and they have sadly been unable to shrug it off.

It was voted “Favourite European Country" in the Guardian, Observer & Guardian Unlimited Travel awards 2006. The County of Gävleborg has a wide variety of sights, attractions, and recreational activities such as skiing, sailing, fishing, golf, music and theatre - and even moose hunting.

Gävle, the county seat, is a mere one-hour’s drive from Stockholm-Arlanda international airport. Here you will find a vibrant city life offering a surprisingly large choice of shopping, restaurants, entertainment and culture. If you are looking for some retail therapy the Swedish are (as you would imagine) big on design and there are many excellent inexpensive shops to be found in Valbo.

You can even take a day-trip to Stockholm. Stockholm is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is known as the Venice of the north, as it is situated on several islands and you have water everywhere. Just outside Stockholm you will also find the archipelago, consisting of over 20 000 islands! There are plenty of things to see and do in Stockholm. The best thing about Stockholm is that almost every thing in the city can be reached on foot; Djurgården, Gamla Stan, Vasa Museum, shopping, theatres, boat excursions, galleries, royal castle and excellent restaurants.
