turner House

  • 4 of 5

house is set in a great landscape, right at the head of the fjord. Verranda of the house was a perfect place to sit in the morning and evening to take in the view.

Lovely, atmospheric house. A real place to escape to.

Good walks direct from the house and not far from ferries at Askvoll.
