Stavehøl is a peaceful haven, full of atmosphere and surrounded by nature. We are in one of the most beautiful corners of Bornholm – the perfect place for your island stay.
Enjoy our secret hideaway that’s just a short cycle ride from the beach, Gudhjem and the round church at Østerlars.
At Stavehøl you will live in 1/2 of a 150 year old Bornholm farmhouse in 2 hectares of meadows and woods.
If you are looking for an authentic Bornholm farmhouse experience in plenty of beautiful green space, then this is the place for you.
The flat comfortably sleeps up to 5, but there is additional space for a further 2 children if desired. There is a farmhouse kitchen downstairs with an open wooden staircase leading to an upstairs mezzanine living room with 2 cosy sofas (which can be converted to 2 comfortable single beds). From this walk-through room you enter the large main bedroom with a king size (180 cm) double bed and an antique 'toddler bed'. This room also gives access to a separate twin bedroom.
Both the kitchen and living room have wood stoves. Firewood and kindling from our own woods is included in the price.
Other features include access to a shared washing machine (for a charge) and free WiFi internet access. We welcome families with children and are happy to provide a high chair and baby cots. The garden features a playhouse and sandpit.
There's a private terrace with outdoor table and seating, a fire-ring for barbecues and camp fires, and sun loungers in the lawn/meadow.
Please note that the kitchen does NOT have a dishwasher and there is no central heating - the flat is only heated with the wood stoves with underfloor heating in the bathroom. Electric heaters for the bedrooms are also available.
You have separate access to your half of the farmhouse and you will share the 2 hectares (5 acres) of grounds (including lawn, meadow, woodland and our own stretch of river) with guests in the studio flat and in July to August with guests in our 3 luxury tents. In July and August the neighbouring studio flat becomes the service room for the tent and yurt dwellers so there could be some noise from cooking and bathroom use between 0800 and 2200.
There are many spaces to enjoy, to hang out, have campfires and barbeques. We frequently see hares, deer, hedgehogs and abundant birdlife in the garden. Swallows nest around the house and nightingale are heard singing most nights between the end of May and late June. The night sky is stunning and you are welcome to borrow one of our telescopes.
We live in the other half of the farmhouse and will offer you a warm welcome, but also respect your privacy. We are always happy to advise on outings, organise bike hire, provide maps and brochures. Phil is an experienced naturalist and amateur historian and offers regular nature walks, archaeology and birdwatching trips.
