Thank you for your kind words. The manor café bakes their own cakes and cookies. Welcome back to visit us again. We're open daily in May-September.

I went for their lunch special, which was a buffet-kinda-lunch. Three hot dishes to choose from, with salad and coffee included. It was OK, but not more than that. Their garden is beautiful, and so it the mansion.

Sorry to hear about your lunch. We don't think Ok is enough, so hopefully we do better next time. Happy to hear that you liked the surroundings, even if it not compensates for the lunch.

The birthplace of one of Sweden's great poets, Gustav Fröding, is well worth a visit. Especially so in summertime. The grand old white mansion, with the surrounding traditional Swedish redcoloured buildings is a beautful place. You get to see the hose and learn more about...More
