Mengi Kjarnholt is a new B&B at Kjarnholt, Biskupstungur in the South of Iceland, appr. 100 km from Reykjavik which is due to open in May 2015. Mengi Kjarnholt is operated by Óður ehf. which also operates Mengi Apartments in Reykjavík

The space

Kjarnholt is a beautiful old farm house and staples originally built for two farming families in the 1950‘s. It‘s been totally renovated in the last couple of years in a rustic manner keeping faith with the aesthetics of a classic Icelandic farm. The house, which is on three floors, has seven double rooms, two family rooms (max 4 people), one single room and a large dining room.
On each floor is a bathroom which guests can share.
The house also has a sauna that fits four people and on the patio is a large jacuzzi that takes up to eight people. Adjacent to the sauna and patio is a shower room with three private showers.

Guest access

large jacuzzi, lounge with TV.

Other things to note

The location of Kjarnholt is just perfect.
The old farm house is seated on top of a small hill with views in every direction and just 1,5 kilometer south of the famous Geysir area.
To the north one can see where the Icelandic Highlands meets the countryside. From the old farm house, you can clearly see the hot spring Strokkur go off every 5- 10 minutes. Beyond that is a view over the beautiful Jarlhettur with Langjökull glacier behind it.
Other mentionable mountains that are visible to the north are Kerlingafjöll and Bláfell to name but a few.
To the south and west you can see the width of Biskupstungur in all it‘s beauty with the river Tungufljót moving majestically across the land just beneath the farm. In the distance Hengill is visible on a clear day as well as Ingólfsfjall near Selfoss.

A wonderful spot to call home while exploring the golden circle or to get away from the busy city. Our stay was short and sweet but everything was done to make sure we were comfortable and well fed! We arrived late, but the hosts were gracious and even gave us some recommendations for places open late for food. Great showers and bathrooms. We never had to wait to use them!! Would love to come back one day.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was lovely and we enjoyed all the art on the wall. Breakfast was charming and delicious. That homemade granola was memorable!
