A comfortable and charming typical Swedish cottage located in a small village located just 10 minutes away from the town of Linköping. The vibrant 19th century, red and white cottage is placed smack dab in the middle of Östergötland farm fields. This gem offers a quiet location for travelers to rest and relax or you make it a perfect base for your trip to southern Sweden. The cottage is divided into an entryway, living room, full kitchen and a half bath. The living room is decorated with a small bed sofa, a big LCD-TV and a charming fully functional fireplace, there is also room for additional tent beds if you are a larger group of people ( max 6) The kitchen is fully equipped and ready to be cooked in if you decide to dine in. The half bath on the ground floor has a sink and toilet. There is a steep staircase to the rustic second floor (might be tough for Young Children and disabled persons). This area consists of a comfortable Hästens double bed and a small bathroom with a wc, shower and sink. The price as stated is for up to 2 persons and upon request we also provide the bed sofa for 1-2 and up to three tent beds/semi comfy beds at a additional cost. The cottage is a strictly non-smoking and peaceful location and we appreciate it that way, so if you are looking for parties and nightlife we recommend that you stay in Linköping. The location of the cottage offers a number of outdoor nature activities. Only 100 meters away there is a nice lake. A small sandy beach access is approximately 1 km away. The nearby forests are great for leisurely walks and can also tease your taste buds with berries to pick at the end of the summer and delicious chanterelle mushrooms in the fall. If you like horse riding there is a big equestrian center with icelandic horses with tour riding arranged in the nice surroundings. We will help you to book the tour and you dont need any experience. Other outdoor activities and family attractions nearby include the famous Göta Kanal, which was hand dug in the 19th century and connects the west and east of Sweden, an old Viking burial ground and rune stone, and a very old Church (from the 12th Century). The burial ground and church are only a short drive down the road. The cottage is perfect for a couple and could accommodate a small family with children. There are two big tourist magnets for families nearby: Kolmården Zoo (Scandinavias biggest) approx. 45 minute car ride North and "Astrid Lindgrens Värld" approx 1 hour south of us. The easiest way to get to the University/City is by car (10 min) or by the bus (20-30min). The bus stop is right outside the cottage but only offers 10 rides per weekday day, in both directions. The location is also very suitable for travelers looking for easy access to the highway E4, which is just 7 minutes away or for travelers needing a place to stay before an early flight out of the Linköping Airport (15 min), which offers several daily flights to Amsterdam Schiphol with KLM/Delta. The nearby train station in Linköping also let travelers reach Stockholm in an hour and a half and Copenhagen in three hours. There is also a 90 mins bus connection from Linköping direct to Stockholm/Skavsta several times a day. Stockholm/Skavsta is a Ryanair Hub for Sweden with tons of direct destinations all over Europe. No breakfast or cleaning is included in the price. If you will spend some time here or want some advises what to see/do and buy in this area check my personal guidebook at this site.

“Very nice hut with great attention to detail! We also really liked the advent lamps and poinsettias. Overall very nice hut! However, you should know that the bathroom is relatively small upstairs and there are hardly any storage options. It is also difficult to stand in the bathroom for two. But after a while we got used to it and the bathroom is visually very modern and chic! The hut is located directly on a not very busy road, as is also mentioned in the advertisement. You can hear the cars relatively strongly, but we didn't hear it because, as I said, there wasn't much traffic.”

“The house and its surroundings are beautiful. Nice big garden with many spots for the kids to discover and for the adults for a coffee or a nice chat. The house is very stylish, you have everything you need, cosy, nicely decorated, enough space also for a rainy day. Kitchen fully equipped you really feel like home. Beautiful colours inside and outside. The hosts were super nice and friendly, open to tell about the place and give good tips. We loved so much to relax qnd play in the garden that finally we didnt make as many trips as planned. Extra was that Maggan and Birger let the kids stroll in the stable and pet their horses and cats. I highly recommend this cottage to everyone who visit Sweden and would like to experience the Swedish countryside or those who live here and would like to escape from a city and have beautiful relaxing days. Many thanks!”

“We (couple + Cavalier King Charles Spaniel lady) spent a night in the beautiful hut of Tommy. The highlight is certainly the great location right on the water. Since the weather was good, we could watch the sunset on the jetty. The cabin is very clean and is well equipped. In addition to a full kitchen, there is also a fridge and freezer. All in all a place where we would have liked to stay longer! The communication with Tommy was perfect and check in / check out no problem at all.”
