About the cottage
The cottage is within stone’s throw from Granfjärden, a sheltered Baltic Sea bay located between Östhammar and Öregrund. There is a small veranda and a big garden with plenty of space for games, sun bathing and barbecue. The cottage is secluded with no direct neighbours.
The house is about 55 square meters large. It has two bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen for self catering and a big living/dining room. the first bedroom has a double bed. The second bedroom has a bunk bed and possibility of adding an extra bed.
The bathroom is rather simplistic – for environmental protection reasons there is no water closet but instead a modern composting toilet of the indoor type. There is also no bath/shower indoors but possibility to use the solar-heated outdoor shower on sunny days.
The cottage is found at the outskirt of the village Norrskedika gruvor, the Norrskedika mines. This is an old iron mining location, you can still see the old entries to the mines in what is now the cow pasture. Local town Östhammar with shops and restaurants is only 10 minutes away by car; summer paradise Öregrund and the ferry to Gräsö only 15 minutes. The family friendly beach is just a short bikeride away.
You enjoy flea markets? Then Norrskedika is the area for you! The forest offers possibility for long walks in beautiful surroundings, or you can go visit one of the many historical sites along the coast, for example Forsmark Bruk. Don’t forget to do the full coffee-and-cinnamon-bun experience at one of the local cafés! Tre-fika (3pm cake and coffee) is a non-optional routine in Sweden. We have kayaks for rent and a morning swim in the sea is a great way to start every day.
And of course – pets are most welcome in our cottage! Dog-sitting over the day can be arranged if you plan an excursion less suitable for your furry friend.
