The guesthouse "Verftet" is located in the old port of Ny-Hellesund, in the middle of the famous skerries of Southern Norway. "Verftet" is surrounded by historic roots, some dating back to St. Olav. Here you will find lovely beaches, unique hiking trails, excellent opportunities for fishing, and nice art and cuisine. "Verftet" is a unique setting for your holiday, conference, board meeting, wedding, anniversary or a trip with your friends or colleagues.The guesthouse "Verftet i Ny-Hellesund" consists of 19 modern apartments, conference rooms for up to 40 people and the gourmet restaurant Bolgen & Moi. There is also a small sandy beach, a nice barbecue area, and a terrace where you can watch the sun go down.Verftet in Ny-Hellesund is built on the grounds of the old Bentsen & Sons Yard. Where they built and maintained boats for 99 years until it was closed down in 2008. But the family business at the site continued through Hanne Bentsen, the daughter of the yard's last owner, Jan Erik Bentsen.The new buildings are designed in respect of the old yard, and the similarity is striking. The architect behind the shipyard is Tor Linge Tonnesen (Strek Arkitekter), and the design was done in close cooperation with the county conservator. The artist Per Fronth, well known for the Nobel Peace Prize diplomas, has decorated the apartments and buildings.The only building that was left behind when the old buildings were demolished was the 50-sqm tank for solar oil. Under the leadership of Per Fronth, the tank was converted into an unique apartment - which is possible to rent.

Ny Hellesund, especially Verftet on Kappeloya, is really very special. We loved the location, the apartment and the environment. Next to the sea! You can use a rowing boat to go to one of the other islands and discover the surprising paradise behind the grim looking rocks on the coast. Go there!

Ny Hellesund is a hidden treasure, and Verftet is located in the heart of this very special place. The appartments faces the sea and is decorated in a simple functional manner. We enjoyed a morning swim and a hike around the island.

We had a very enjoyable 2 night stay at Hellesund. From the ferry ride past little fishermans huts to being met by Hanne when we arrived at the island was a great experience. Hanne the manager was very helpful and informative. The apartment was very clean and had everything you needed for a great time. A walking trail from outside your door took you over rocks with breath taking views. The restaurant had views over the water and the food was very good. Just check when it is open. Thank-you for your kind hospitality Hanne. Hope to come back again very soon.

Spent three days here in November 2014 for a teambuilding event. Nice meeting facilities and good service. Very friendly staff throughout the stay, with the main hightlight being world class chef Trond Moi preparing food and drinks in a very informal setting. Rented a boat one of the days, and the chef prepared a perfect dish from our fish, in addition to other dishes. Beautiful and quiet surroundings with a nice hiking route in between meetings. Highly recommended, even during winter time.

We were some friends joining a course in making bread and sweets in a "baking-own", fired up like people did long, long time ago. The food we got the hole weekend tasted wonderful. Verftet i Ny-Hellesund is on an island, but the place has all the facilities you need for a good time. Its a beautiful scenic route you can walk along the coastline, and up on a hill overlooking all the islands around you. Very beautiful. And when the sunset comes, its a wonderful place to be:) I deeply recommend this place to everyone, if you want to go with friends or as a couple or with the family, you`ll find something for everyone. Thank you for some nive days, verftet i Ny-hellesund:)
