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.
Please only reserve if you are a reliable person used to treating your surroundings with respect.
We have a no smoking, no pet policy inside the house . Also please don't "bring the party home".. general house rules in Iceland indicate a quiet time after 11pm.
