WELCOME TO TORPET FRIDHEM!
Silence, calm, meadows, forest and the sea. Promenade-friendly trails and small gravel roads pass through woods and past meadows, fields and hills with sheep, horses and cows. At our place on Orust you have time both for relaxing and for socializing. With a minimal footprint on the environment, you can enjoy lazy summer days or cozy spring and autumn evenings at the cottage. Depending on the season, you can pick raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, lingonberries and mushrooms in the surrounding forest.
The cottage lies at the edge of the forest next to a large meadow. After a short walk on a small forest path, you will have a nice lookout spot with beautiful 180 degree sea views. There is a small stone beach and cliffs down by the sea about 800 meters from the cottage, which is reached via a path through the woods.
About the lodge
The main building was built in the late 19th century and has a simple standard with genuine feel. On the ground floor there is a full kitchen with dining area, wood stove, fridge and freezer, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, pots and pans and kitchenware. In the living room through the kitchen there is a couch which can be used as a double bed, as well as comfortable armchairs. In the furnished attic there are a total of 4 (-6) beds. The ceiling height in the highest part of the attic is about 1.90m. When you enter the house there is a small room with a modern composting toilet and a single sink to your left. There is a sun-heated shower outside the house and an outhouse approximately 15m from the main building, at the back of the barn. Outside the outhouse there is also a small basin, a refillable water tank, soap and a towel.
The lodge is located on a plot of approximately 1 hectare of woodland and meadow. There is a large outdoor veranda. Between two big birches in the garden there is a clothes line. The small basement under the house is ideal for use as a pantry, as its thick stone walls provide a cool and even temperature.
The newly built barn is a great place for big parties and dinners regardless of the weather. Set the tables and open the double doors! It is also great to sleep upstairs in the loft, where there are two beds with mattresses. The pull-out sofa in the barn serves as a storage for garden games but can also be used as a bed.
There is also a small, detached lodge - "Lillstugan". It’s the old woodshed that has been rebuilt and renovated to maintain the old charm, and it accommodates a double bed. A nice place to withdraw with a good book!
