Good, clean and big house. Friendly people.Nice view. The house is equipped with all necessary stuff. At the farm you can get fresh eggs and home made apple juicy and other home made food. 4 minute drive to the ferry to Gudvangen (twice a day).

Had three wonderful days at Amblegaard. Our rental house was lovely, with great views of the fjord. The house was spacious and had a nice working kitchen. It was clean upon arrival, and we were also happy that it had a washing machine so we could do laundry.

It was a real treat to spend each breakfast outside at the adorable picnic table. We took full advantage of the fresh juice and eggs available for purchase in their farm store.

The property itself is in a stunning place, quiet and beautiful. It’s a great place to relax, and also a great base for exploring the nearby fjords, mountain passes, and quaint towns.

A few notes of improvement… it would have been helpful to get a tour of house upon arrival. However, the owners were available when we had questions. It also would have been nice to get more than 1 towel per person, if only because the towels were a bit worn. You have to go to the bench or barn to use the internet, and it would have been great to have it available at the house. Also, the upstairs bathroom window didn’t have a shade. Not a big deal, but you can see where other guests' cars are parked, which means they can see you. In addition, the owners asked us to pay in advance with a wire transfer. That involved an extra fee on our end, which I would have liked to avoid.

Overall, Amblegaard was the perfect home base in Kaupanger. And their apple juice is really good.

My wife and I have spent a wonderful week at Amblegaard in Mid June 2014 ! Hestehagen, the smallest of the farm cottages was an excellent lodge with rustic character and fabulous views over the Amla bay and further toward Sognefjord ! It was a great location, less than an hour drive to several attractions, enabling us drive one day on Aurlandsvegen (the "snow road"), to reach the view point Stegastein overlooking the Aurland fjord and then have for a couple of afternoon hours the world heritage cruise on the Naeroyfjorden from Gudvangen to Flam. For another day we had a magnificent experience of guided walk - 2 hours - on the glacier at Nigardsbreen, a third day drive on the romantic road along the southern shore of beautiful Luterfjord (Ornes to Skjolden) and on a fourth day visit to another beautiful fjord, Fjaerlandfjorden and to the book town at Mundal ! We've spent very nice time at Kaupanger, the town adjacent to Amblegaard, visiting its famous stave church, having pleasant walks along Amla bay and on the hills overlooking it and sitting in Knaken Cafe near the church having one of their tasty dishes! We had our grocery shopping made in a big supermarket in Kaupanger, less than 3 km drive from the farm. Whatever the program we had, it was great to get back, each afternoon, to Hestehagen, have our dinner with its magical views and relax with a glass of beer or wine !
In addition to all these remarks, Mette was an excellent hostess, always with smile and good will. When we mentioned that the bedroom was not enough dark at night (mid June nights) she was so kind to solve the problem on the next day by setting rolling black curtains ! We would like to spend more time at this wonderful place and hope to do so one day! For those who are planning to enjoy Fjord Norway it is most recommended !

Room Tip: Hestehagen cottage is perfect for couples or even small families (up to 4), secluded on the one hand...

We have just returned from a great trip to Amblegaard. We stayed in one of the lovely houses for a week. The location is absolutely stunning and we loved spending the nights enjoying a glass of wine on our terrace. My husband had a great time on the fjord with the kayaks. We enjoyed eating the fresh eggs and lettuces from the farm each day with our meals. We had an amazing stay, the owners couldn't have been more helpful. It was a great place to recharge and serve as a base for our travels to Flåm and Jostedalsbreen but what we enjoyed most was exploring the little area around the house.

Room Tip: All of the houses have amazing views and the area is very quiet.

Our Australian family of five stayed in the cottage called Svalestova for one week in June 2013 and it was fabulous. Simple, comfortable, clean, very well equipped accommodation in a stunning location, run by friendly people. It is extremely well located. There is so much wonderful hiking, driving and boating to be done in the area, a lovely cafe near the stave church and a historic folk museum nearby that is really interesting for children. We would come back in a heartbeat and wished we'd stayed for longer. We had to go to the woodshed to access wifi, but the owners knew this was an issue and told us they would soon provide it to each cottage. There is no clothes dryer or microwave. We highly recommend Amblegaard at Kaupanger.

Stayed at Amble last winter with a couple of friends. The house we stayed in was both cosy and well-furnished. Large living room, high quality bath room and nice beds. The kitchen was supplied with more or less everything we needed. The furniture was antique in a positive meaning!

The scenery is astonishing. The view is fantastic and the tranquility a blessing. The Sogndal area must be considered as a hidden gem for nature lovers. Really great stay at the beautiful Amble farm!
