Contact Owner

Wonderful forest cabin situated cabin in Southern Norway... Ideal summer or winter... Few minutes from a fantastic sandy freshwater beach.


Set in a valley with direct views to the river and the local mountains this cabin is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the true Norway. The cabin is situated on a flat rock plateau on the edge of the heather clad pine forest. A short 50 metres walk takes you down to the crystal clear waters of the river. Where you can fish for trout, take a boat trip or just enjoy the peace and quiet of the Norwegian Countryside.

This log cabin in Norway is ideally located within a reasonably short drive from Oslo Torp (Ryanair). There is a large lounge and kitchen with open fire and wood stove. TV with UK Satellite Channels. There are four bedrooms sleeping a total of 9 people. Three of the bedrooms have twin beds that can be put together to form double beds. The fourth bedroom has a “family bed” consisting of a bunk bed with a double under and a single over.

One of the main features of this property is the wonderful and secluded sandy beach with 700 metres of the cabin. The river is closer just 20 meters from the cabin... The beach has a volley ball net... and is ideal for swimming.

The cabin is with 60 metres on one other cabin... but this is only used occasionally by the owners.. so the chances are you will be alone.. The area has walks... and great fishing possibilities. Trout and perch being the main fish caught.

Staying at Norwegian Wood Cabin is a chance to re charge your batteries... Reflect on the things that really matter in life.. and spend quality time with family and friends.

GAS FIRED FIRED HOT TUB Available from 17th May 2010. (Optional Extra)

HOT TUB USE. Hot Tub takes 8 Hours to heat. Plus uses approx. 10 kilo Gas to get to 30 degrees. Charge includes Gas for 1 x use and includes final cleaning. Extra gas may be bought at local shop. NOTE HOT TUB MUST BE PRE BOOKED

Inside you will find lifes luxuries... Wide Screen TV, DVD selection.

The views to Storefjell (Large Mountain) are amazing at sunrise when the sun changes the colour of the mountain to various shades of purple green and brown. Rising up to about 1000 metres the local glacier carved mountains are not the Alps but have a charm of their own. Locals believe the mountain range is in the shape of a sleeping giant troll…

The cabin is situated on the edge of a pine forest approximately 150 metres from the road. The pine forest is rich in wildlife including Moose (elk), Red Deer, Roe Deer, Red Squirrels, Artic Hares, Badgers and Foxes… There is the occasional wolf in the area, in fact as this is being written August 2007 there is a warning notice about wolves to local sheep farmers. Beavers inhabit the local rivers and evidence of their activity can be seen in the whole area. The bird life also is also in abundance with Black Wood Peckers and many different birds of prey, including golden eagles.

In the right season there is an abundance of berries and mushrooms including blue berries, cranberries and cloud berries (an arctic delicacy).

There are many walks from the cabin. You can walk for as long and where you wish because of Norway’s relaxed “Right to Roam Laws”… The Norwegians believe that the countryside is for the people and “trespassing” is almost unheard of… So walk where you please… no one will bother you. Ordinance survey maps of the area are supplied in the cabin and we have a number of suggested walks.

Ski Centres are withi reach...
There are two alpine skiing centres are with a short drive...

Vradal is... apprx 80 kms away....

But of course you can X country ski from the door... and Sledge!!

There is a small shop with 5 mins drive.

Family from Vila Nova Famalicao, Portugal Aug 2014

We spent two weeks. We found exactly what we were expecting: A very quiet place where you could hear only the sounds of nature. We never saw other people around the house and on the beach a 15 minute walk.
The kitchen has many appliances that can cook as if we were in our own home.
In short, a perfect place to be in contact with nature, without human presence.
A dream home and a dream landscape.
Thank you very much Tony.

From London, United Kingdom Dec 2009

Lovely cabin in the woods. Warm, comfortable and spacious. We spent a perfect Christmas in this winter wonderland. Excellent communication with Tony. Thank you for this great holiday.

From Folkestone, United Kingdom Aug 2009

A cabin in a wonderful spot. The family had a wonderful time, as did I, & Tony was extremely helpful to the point of helping us get car hire when all looked lost.

It is a beautiful country and I promise you, Norwegian Wood is missed and I waited sometime to ensure a fair and balanced review.

The private beach is stunning and the river at the bottom of the property was great fun, how much fun can children have with a hammock, Ill tell you, PLENTY!

A great introduction to Norway, unforgettable!

From Risor, Norway Jun 2009

The property was very spacious and well equiped set in a lovely location. We were more than happy with all the assistance from the locals. We will most would consider returned another year.

From London, United Kingdom Apr 2009

We have an amazing time at the cabin. Tony and Jon were really helpful. The place was beautiful, the hot tub great fun, the view fantastic.

The evenings were filled with food, chat, dvds and the great log fire.

We walked through the forests, up the mountain in the snow and to the beach, all of which were great.

The directions were spot on, 2 of the group went skiing and we all took a trip to Oslo.

I would recommend this place to everyone.
