LAKESIDE POSITION, GARDEN STRETCHING DOWN TO THE BEACH, WITH SPECTACULAR LAKE AND MOUNTAIN VIEWS

Reykjavik Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 7. 3 bedroom cottage. Two double beds, a single and double top bunk. Lakeside cottage in one of Iceland’s most desirable beauty spots, 35 minutes drive from Reykjavik city centre and within an hour's drive of the Golden Waterfall, the geysers, Thingvellir National Park (25 mins) and other key sights. The garden stretches down to the Lake Medalfell with direct access to the lake. The cottage has been in the family since it was built (by my grandfather). We are a British / Icelandic family.

The lakeside cottage nestles at the foot of Medalfell mountain right down at the water´s edge. The views are spectacular, of the lake and its surrounding mountain scape; it is a place of pure tranquillity. It has 3 bedrooms and an open plan kitchen and living area filled with antique shabby chic furniture and more contemporary Scandinavian pieces. There is one bathroom with a toilet and a washing machine and separate tumble dryer. The kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, and has a good selection of appliances.

It has a full license, a bar and a restaurant, is a general store, and the people who run it are very friendly.

The local amenities are in Mosfellsbær, a 30 min drive. there you will find banks, bakeries, supermarkets, post office, doctors surgery, car mechanics etc.

Kaffi Kjós is a general store, pub and restaurant a 10 minute's walk along the lakeside road. It is open during the summer months and on a few selected dates during winter. There is a wonderful swimming pool in Mosfellsbær called Lágafellslaug; it has a 25 metre pool with lots of lanes, 3 water slides, a sauna, steam bath and hot pots.

We had such an amazing time in Iceland, totally fell in love with the country and this cottage. It was so nice to go exploring in the day, and then return to our own piece of tranquillity. It has a homely feel and incredibly warm and inviting.

I'd go again, in a heartbeat.
