Bjarnum

One of the best things about this house is the area. It is wonderfully tranquil and calm. As it's next to the woods, one hears and sees many different kinds of birds during the daytime and at nighttime there is complete silence. On dark nights one can see millions of stars, even the milky way is visible! All year round there are plenty of outdoor activities. Specially in the long Scandinavian summer days one can spend most of the time bathing, fishing or rowing in the lake. The lake area is very peaceful and the water is so still the surface is like a mirror for the sky and trees that surround it. The rich humus soil of south Sweden colors the lake a dark brown but the water is very clean and if you are lucky you can catch fresh water fish like perch, bream, pike, walleye, rudd and tench. It is also possible to explore a second lake by rowboat because Bjärlången is actually two lakes that are connected with a Monet like bridge! By the larger Bjärlången there is a jumping tower, playground and swimming area for the local community. It is also possible to get to the other lake on foot. In fact, the whole area is great for walking and cycling. Because of the Swedish right to public access ("allemansrätt") everyone is free to enjoy and explore the forests, lakes, fields and beaches in the country. In the areas around the house there are plenty of trails to walk where you can discover other lakes or find your own "smultronställen" (a Swedish name for lovely-little-special-secret-spot). In the summertime you can find all kind of berries like wild strawberries, blueberries, lingonberries, cloudberries, raspberries, cranberries and others and in the autumn there are lots of mushrooms to pick. If it's a snowy winter one can have fun with snowball fights or building snowmen, or sliding down the hill on "pulkas", skating on the lake or just curl up with a good book in front of the fire place. But there are also alternatives to the quiet life, Copenhagen and Malmo are only a car or train ride away as are the eastern and western coasts where you can visit picturesque towns like Simrishamn and Kristianstad or Helsingborg where you can take the ferry to Helsingor (Denmark) and visit the Hamlet Castle or the Louisiana Museum. You can also visit the Stenshuvud National Park located on the southeast coast of Sweden, known as Österlen. Skånes Djurpark (the zoo of Nordic animals) is also a drive away. The location of the house makes it is possible to spend a day at the beach or in a big city! There are also plenty of shorter trips to be made in the area. For instance, the Osby toy museum is 20 min away by car and makes for a great day out for small children. In the area of Bjarnum there is also one of the best agriculture museums in the north, a very nice indoor and outdoor swimming pool, and two golf courses. Hässleholm, the nearest town, has a cinema and a culture centre with a library, tourist information and various activities. If you have particular interests or needs, we know the area well and can give you lots of tips and suggestions for things to do.
