Quiet, winterised romantic retreat with its own attached barbecue house complete with reindeer skins and a lovely log fire in the living room.

This picturesque old cottage has been tastefully modernised (2010) whilst retaining its charm. It has a bedroom, living room, IKEA kitchen, dining area and a modern bathroom. It sleeps 5 comfortably in an IKEA bunk bed (that sleeps 3) in the bedroom and the IKEA double bed sofa in the living room. In the living room there is also the lovely log fire to snuggle up around. Attached to the cottage is the famous barbecue hut with real reindeer skins. It has all the modern amenities you would expect including a flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi, dishwasher and washing machine.

The south-facing veranda over-looks the village green and has patio furniture, barbecue and a sunbed. The cottage is available all year round.

The village green offers enough room for playing and fun for the little children; and there is a playing field, trampoline and swings nearby. But you also have the possibility for picking blueberries, lingonberries, wild raspberries, depending on season, or just go mushrooming for chanterelles in the surrounding forest. You may also see signs of moose, fox, reindeer, many variety of birds and perhaps bear.

It is located in Kolforsen, a secluded hamlet outside Ockelbo, with very little traffic surrounded by forests and farm land, There is very few neighbours but those you meet will respect your privacy but are also happy to interact if this you wish!

By Car:

Our recommended route is to travel on the E4 motorway and approx. 30 km north of Gävle take the 303 exit at Hagsta/Hakke Gård. Follow the 303 towards Ockelbo. Drive approx. 13 km and where Ockelbo starts (by the huge sign "Välkommen till Ockelbo") turn left on the gravel road marked "Kolforsen 6". Drive 6 km on the road until you come to Kolforsen. In the middle of the village, by a sheep field on the left hand side, turn left on another gravel road and your cottage is the red one with the attached red car port and grey barbeque hut marked with number "43" just after the sheep field on the right hand side.

www.eniro.se or www.googlemaps.com give good road descriptions.

By Public Transport:

Trains and buses in Sweden are modern and fast. There are many train and bus connections to Ockelbo, but most of the time you are required to change in Gävle. We can arrange pick up on arrival and drop off at departure from Ockelbo train and bus station.

Uppskattat av hela familjen

Vi hade en väldigt väldigt bra vistelse. Allting fungerade som det skulle och uthyrarna är väldigt trevliga! Den lilla 'grillhyddan' uppskattades av hela familjen och användes ofta. Det finns massor av leksaker och 'tillbehör': spel, båt, pulkor, grillar... Bäddsoffan var dock inte den bekvämaste, åtminstone inte för oss vuxna.

Another relaxing week

We have enjoyed another relaxing week in Kolforsen. Not as much snow as previous years so no skiing this time but we have still been able to enjoy ourselves. We had a great time going husky sledging when it finally did snow enough on our last days here. As always, we really enjoyed spending the evenings in the barbeque hut. I am sure we will be back again!

Lamm föddes

Bodde 1 natt i 39an och 3 nätter i 43an. Jättefina bekväma stugor. På dagarna var vi mest i Kungsberget och åkte slalom. Ett stort plus var att två lamm föddes under vår vistelse, mycket uppskattad av våra två barn! Alla de andra djuren uppskattades med, liksom det fina landskapet i Kolforsen. Lite lite snö men det är inget att göra åt det. Tack för den här gången!

Lugn och ro

Det fanns en härlig kåta strax intill stugan som man kunde hålla till vid, samt även en mysig öppen spis för att elda i stugan. Läget är, utifrån att stugan ligger in bit utanför Ockelbo, mycket bra utifrån ett geografiskt perspektiv eftersom att du med bil kan nå flertalet städer såsom Gävle, Hudiksvall, Uppsala etc inom ett par timmar. Samtidigt finns möjlighet att ta del av Kolforsens egna aktiviteter och god möjlighet till avkoppling.

Det hade varit bra med en skylt med företagets namn, så att man visste när man kommit fram och om man kommit rätt. Städningen något dyr om man inte valde att städa själv. Stugan erbjöd mer än förväntat; det var snygg, modern och fräsch inredning och ett stort utbud av underhållning (film, böcker, spel, tidningar, digitalbox). När vi kom dit fanns till och med te, kaffe och socker i ett skåp, vilket var mycket uppskattat. Perfekt att kunna betala med kort, eftersom inte alla tänker på att ha kontanter med sig. Trevligt bemötande!

“An ideal place to get away from it all, yet with plenty of family activities.”

Liked best: The beautiful forest location, the friendly and helpful owners/locals, the tranqulity. Liked least: The flies/mosquitos - but if you cover up a little outside on summer evenings it should be ok. We stayed for 2 weeks in the small cottage. The cottage is comfortable and met our needs (2 adults and 2 children) perfectly. It is very well equipped and clean, and it's located alongside a lovely village green in the forest community of Kolforsen. We found that Kolforsen was the ideal location for a getaway with the family. It's located in a beautiful area of forest and lakes in central Sweden. While the location is tranquil and off the beaten track, it's only about a 15-min drive into the nearest town of Ockelbo, which has a good supermarket, pharmacy, pizzerias, etc. Arlanda airport is approx. 2 hours' drive to the south. The owners of the cottage are fantastic hosts, providing assistance and advice whenever it's needed - nothing is too much trouble. There are bikes, a boat, a canoe, DVDs, books and games all available for use by guests for no charge. The bikes are a perfect way to get to and from the lake and village beach located about 1km from the cottage. The beach is small but ideal for young kids, and we happily spent several fun afternoons here. Within about 45 mins' drive of the cottage we visited the Moose Park just outside Ockelbo, the farm and playground at Hogbo Bruk, the Wij Gardens, and went on the steam train in Jadraas. Further afield we went to the Trolska Skogen (Enchanted Forest) near Mellanfjarden, Furuvik (Amusement Park, Zoo, and Water Park all in one - you could spend a couple of days here), the Arsunda Viking Centre, and the Nordic zoo in Jarvso. All of these were excellent places to visit and we'd recommend any of them for keeping the kids entertained. All told, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are already thinking about when we can go back again.

Wonderful family holiday

We have spent a wonderful family holiday in this little cottage in the beautiful Swedish summer. The peace and beauty of the area has made it an ideal place for some quality family time. The cottage has been ideal for our needs and your hospitality and local knowledge have been wonderful - thank you so much! Kolforsen, both the immediate surroundings of the cottage and the beach, has been the perfect location for our two little boys to play and explore. We have also enjoyed visits to the some great attractions in the general area - the Moose park, Jädraås Steam Train, the Wij Gardens, Högbo Bruk for its excellent playground and farm animals, and Årsunda Viking Centre. Further afield, we visited Furuvik Amusement Park, Järvsö Zoo and the enchanted forest (Trolska Skogen) in Mellanfjärden. All excellent days out! Plus we were introduced to Brännboll (Swedish rounders)! Thank you so much for providing us such a beautiful holiday destination. See you next year!
