Hogsby house description

Charming red and white Swedish house at the edge of a wood, available in summer and winter: Our charming Skogshyttan House is situated in Astrid Lindgren country, is airy and inviting, has 90 m2 ground surface, 4 lovely rooms (including 3 bedrooms), a large, cosy kitchen, a garden with outdoor seating and a wood barn. We also have German TV for when it rains. Very near to the idyllic little village of Karlstorp, our house has beautiful natural surroundings and there’s plenty to do, such as walking in the forest, hiking, cycle tours, swimming/boating in in the two adjacent lakes (800 m and 1.5 km away). You can rent a boat or buy a fishing permit. Vimmerby, Bullerbü and Katthult are very easy to get to, the sea is about an hour away, and the sweets factory in Marianneland will appreciate your visit! In winter you can even go skiing here!

                      Welcome to one of the loveliest regions of Småland and to Astrid Lindgren’s home! Skogshyttan House is situated near Marianneland at the edge of the forest in in a thickly wooded romantic location. There are lots of lakes here (the nearest are 800 and 1500 m away) for swimming, fishing and boating, lots of animals (elks, deer, hares, wild pigs and forest birds), dense forests to walk in, stroll and day-dream, and close by there’s also Bullerbü, Katthult and Vimmerby. Old and young will love the theme park Astrid Lindgren’s World in Vimmerby, where places and scenes of her wonderful stories can be seen. In the summer you can play golf in Eksjö or go skiing nearby in the winter, or in nearby Marianneland visit the ‘sweet’ little sweet factory, and from here it’s only an hour to the sea. Welcome – to an unforgettable, wonderful holiday!
