A Fairytale Swedish Cottage in a Forest

If anybody requested me what I perceived as quintessentially Swedish, I would present them this cottage! It is like one thing straight out of an Astrid Lindgren story! 

Tucked away in a clearing in a forest 1 hour North of Stockholm, the two-hundred-year-old crimson, white and yellow cottage is in a romantic world of its personal. Life is straightforward – but all fundamentals wants are met with a totally functioning kitchen, cosy sitting room and a bed room tucked below the roof.  There’s additionally a easy dry bathroom within the outhouse – together with a bed room for friends. 

For these of you who like a couple of house comforts – worry not, there’s additionally heat bathe (I have not proven it right here, however I promise there’s one!). This was in all probability a comparatively new addition. My mother-in-law tells me that at our little Swedish cottage there by no means was once a bathe and her household used the ocean to wash – and I see there is a lake close by to this property! 

Both manner, this appears like the right place to njuta!
