We the Hedberg family, welcome you who would like to stay with basic comfort in a scenic environment with oak meadows, lake and nearby farm together with a watch tower on your door step. This farm is located between Tranås and Gränna, in northern Småland.

Rent the tenant dwelling with 12 berths in five rooms and a large kitchen with a fireplace heating stove. Children are very welcome, there are plenty of room inside and in the garden together with unique possibilities in the forest and on the grounds for everybody to enjoy and grow. During the years we have noticed that the dwelling is suitable for several generations together as well as a multiple dwelling.

It is basic, bed linen and towels are not included, and you must clean the dwelling before your departure. Dishwasher, washing machine and a TV with basic channels are included. Rowing boat and canoe available to lend. The fishing is good, bring your private gear. Life jackets are available. We can help you with equipment for a day’s excursion in the forest if you are interested. You can also book to go crayfishing according to old traditions, during August and September.

Around the farm there are sheep, lambs and horses grazing on large oak meadows and you can easily walk through the meadows along the animal paths and discover the biological variety. Hens for household requirements are available at the farm, and they are always happy to receive leftovers and a chat in the garden! Occasionally we have chickens and summer grazing cows and calves at the farm. Two farm cats also live here.

We are very fond of the interaction between the human, animals and nature. There is so much to discover around the clock and all year round in the forest and on the grounds. If you are lucky, you might spot the Golden eagle and the osprey sail over the farm and during the evenings hear the Tawny owl hoot. During spring we welcome back the crane´s, the Bittern together with the Black-throated diver amongst others. We live at the farm in the main building and the rental dwelling is a wing building with private areas, garden furniture, barbeque, hammock together with a large lawn. A spacious veranda at the back with both morning and evening sunshine. A start kit with toilet paper, washing up liquid, soap etc will be available upon your arrival.

An additional wing building with six berths on a large loft and a spacious room with kitchen, WC and shower is available to rent during specific weeks of the summer. Very nice timbered cottage with an open fireplace and lovely space in the large room together with open areas towards the lake, meadows and farmland outside. Welcome to Vänsternäs Gård!

Our farm is located in a direct connection to the trail Holavedsleden, so if you like hiking and need to stay over, this will suit you perfectly. Several lovely excursion goals nearby such as Gränna and Visingsö, Astrid Lindgren´s World, Vadstena Castle etc. Flea markets, herb factory, smokehouse... We would love to help you!
