Cottages to rent

Two cottages in one, each containing 6 beds. It is possible to rent one of them, or both. We offer accommodation in our cosy, 200-year-old semi-detached house, in scenic surroundings. In order for you to enjoy your stay here, both cottages are equipped for self-catering in a modern but simple way. We offer relaxing and scenic surroundings in a district marked by the tradition of ancient mills and agriculture. Gärdserum is a little church village in the beautiful valley of Ukna, around 12 km south of Åtvidaberg, in the southern part of Östergötland. There are several beautiful views from the viewpoints on the mountaintops. Båtsjön (The Boatlake) and Storån (The Big River) are two of the water courses in the valley and there are open landscapes where you can see all kinds of animals, from rare bugs and insects to grazing cows and horses, in the summer, that is. If you are lucky, you may spot many wild animals such as roe deer, deer, elks and wild boars. Other interesting things to experience are the rare insects on the mountainside and a rich birdlife by the marshy grounds around the river.


Within 300 m you reach the forest with nice animal paths and forest roads. Östgötaleden passes outside the house and through a beautiful natural and cultural country where you can feel the wings of history.


Some of many nearby excursion goals that can be enjoyed for a day could be: Kolmården’s Animal Park, The World of Astrid Lindgren in Vimmerby, Gamla Linköping, which is an open air museum showing a historic old town, The Air Force museum in Linköping and Busfabriken - the Factory of pranks, a huge playground for children, also in Linköping.


The culture surrounding the ancient milling society, several museums and the only sun cannon in the world are both to be experienced in Åtvidaberg. Take the opportunity to attend a football game when Åtvidaberg’s FF are playing or try a round on one of the country’s oldest golf courses, while you are here. We arrange pleasant activities where you can experience nature and take advantage of its resources in order to improve your health.
