About Agneta Wejland
I was born in Gävle but I left Sweden in my 20s to see the world. I returned to Sweden in 2006, after the death of my father, and settled with my Scottish partner and children in idyllic Kolforsen. I am still exploring the world, but nowadays the world come to me and our cottages. I love to help guests experience the best of Sweden! I also love that we have a hobby farm where our philosophy is that the animals are in their natural habitat - and that you can get fresh ecological eggs in the egg-laying season. Guests are more than welcome to feed our animals. My ultimate dream is to have a self-sufficient household for food, both meat and vegetables. Renting out the cottages combined with running the hobby farm in this tranquil place is just perfect for me.

Why Agneta Wejland chose Ockelbo Municipality
As I am from Sweden and my partner is from Scotland we named our company SWESCOT and each cottage is named after a Scottish tartan. We manage this cottage for our friends the Harper family. The cottage decor is a little tired, but it has a well-equipped kitchen, 1 bedroom and living room. At the back of the cottage there is a large lawn that gets the morning sun and is perfect for all sorts of outdoor games. The outside veranda on the front has a BBQ and is somewhat shaded by large trees. It has all the modern amenities you would expect including a flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi, dishwasher and washing machine. It is available all year round, there is even a wood-burner inside. We have a nearby storage where you can find bicycles, fishing equipment, indoor and outdoor games, books, etc free of charge. The cottages are decorated for Christmas, Easter and Midsummer to provide an authentic feel to your stay. The cottage is well placed for exploring the surrounding nature and is within a short walking distance to the lake with its sauna and hot tub. Come visit Sweden, there is plenty to do all year round!
What makes this Cottage unique
The hamlet, where the properties are located, is tranquil, with only 15 permanent residents. The nearby village, Ockelbo, prides itself on being close to nature, beautiful scenery and that Prince Daniel (married to Crown Princess Victoria) grew up here. The county is great for everything you can possible think about if you think of Sweden; within 4 hours driving you can experience everything that Sweden is famous for. We also have good cooperation with organisers so whether you want to go skiing, fishing, dog sledging, berry picking, wolf watching, canoeing - or anything that takes your fancy - we can help you organise it.
