About the property

K43 Stewart Cottage

Quiet, winterised romantic retreat with its own attached barbecue house complete with reindeer skins and a lovely log fire in the living room.

This picturesque old cottage has been tastefully modernised (2010) whilst retaining its charm. It has a bedroom, living room, IKEA kitchen, dining area and a modern bathroom. It sleeps 5 comfortably in an IKEA bunk bed (that sleeps 3) in the bedroom and the IKEA double bed sofa in the living room. In the living room there is also the lovely log fire to snuggle up around. Attached to the cottage is the famous barbecue hut with real reindeer skins. It has all the modern amenities you would expect including a flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi, dishwasher and washing machine.

The south-facing veranda over-looks the village green and has patio furniture, barbecue and a sunbed. The cottage is available all year round.

The village green offers enough room for playing and fun for the little children; and there is a playing field, trampoline and swings nearby. But you also have the possibility for picking blueberries, lingonberries, wild raspberries, depending on season, or just go mushrooming for chanterelles in the surrounding forest. You may also see signs of moose, fox, reindeer, many variety of birds and perhaps bear.

It is located in Kolforsen, a secluded hamlet outside Ockelbo, with very little traffic surrounded by forests and farm land, There is very few neighbours but those you meet will respect your privacy but are also happy to interact if this you wish!

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.

Agneta Wejland purchased this cottage in 2008

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. This was our first cottage which we extended to modern standards in 2008. It was recently decorated during August 2017. It is a bright and spacious cottage that sleeps up to 10. It has all the modern amenities you would expect including a flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi, dishwasher and washing machine.

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.

This cottage is located is close to urban Sweden, but a world away from the stress of city living.

Excellent place for anyone who wants to experience what Sweden has to offer summer, winter, autumn and spring.

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.
