Het Svenstorps meerHet Svenstorps meer

In springtime you will hear wonderful birdsong and experience the beautiful, budding nature as you walk in the forest.

Did you know that Sweden has 345 more hours of sunshine than the Netherlands in the summertime? Enjoy the sunshine at the Svenstorp Lake and the magnificent panorama of the surrounding woods, where wild raspberries, blueberries and strawberries grow.

On a lovely autumn day you can go for a walk and pick mushrooms. The woods, covered with moss and heartwarming scents of the leaves, offer chanterelles, porcini mushrooms, cranberries and more.

Winter invites cross-country skiing or ice skating (if there is snow and ice). Just 50 kilometers away is a small alpine area, Vallåsen.

Our advice: horseback riding in the park Söderåsen at Anna Lewijn.


20 km south of our cottages you will ride on calm and quiet Haflinger horses. Riders gather in the stable for brushing, saddling and getting acquainted with the horses for the ride. Then you ride a tour in the forest of the Söderåsens National Park. For all rides, a good guide comes with you, and helps you and shows you how to handle the horse. The groups are adapted to the riding experience: we avoid having beginners and experienced riders ride together.
Tanne will gladly help you to book with Anna. Our guests have been very enthusiastic after their experience with Anna and her horses!
Book in for your holiday, she is quite busy!
