In a country without nobility this place is rare. A quiet location with a nice, old garden. The old farmhouse is converted into a sort of hostel. Very basic accommodation with shared bathrooms. Charming environment ! The castle is small but nice. We stayed 24...More

Thank you for your review! You are quite right, Manor Houses like this are not common in Norway, this is in fact the only Barony in Norway, and Scandinavias smallest castle. We are very proud and fond of our gardens, especially the big rose garden,...More

Beautiful, romantic and perhaps even better at nights when popular artists perform concerts. Join in on the guided tour to see the art exhibition as well. Otherwise the restaurant was good although a bit of waiting in a queue is to be expected. Better still,...More
