Our traditional Swedish cottage 'Björn stuga' is a 33 sq.m. log house set in a very small and quiet village less than 12 km out of Ockelbo. It is a cosy, comfortable and homely cottage which we renovated and decorated in 2017 with great love and care so that our guests can enjoy their holiday and their stay. The cottage is ideal for 2 people who need peace, privacy and the need to reconnect with and enjoy the beautiful Swedish nature. A river runs only 50 m far from the house where you can fish and bathe; a lake is only a 10-min trip on foot and the walks through the forest and fields are most delightful. Berry picking and mushroom picking are also great seasonal activities but please always remember to leave some berries for our bears; we do have a good number of them around! On some occasions, you may want to take part in the locally famous Mörtebo motion-bingo and even win some local treats!

The house has the required comforts to make your holiday relaxing and enjoyable but if there is something else that you need besides what is in the cottage, we will be very happy to help. My husband and I who own this cottage live in the main house nearby and we are very agreeable and friendly. We are retired British citizens who have fled the London rat race, fallen in love with Mörtebo and the beauty of the local countryside and have now made it our home!
The town of Ockelbo has all the amenities you might need while on holiday such as an ICA supermarket. post office, Handelsbanken bank, swimming pool, restaurants and a coffee shop, a library, a cinema, a health centre, dental clinics, opticians, hairdressers, etc. For more elaborate shopping the towns of Gävle and Sandviken are only 45 min by car from Ockelbo


Description of Interior

The cottage has a separate dining room with very big windows and a full view of the garden and surrounding fields and forest. The bathroom is brand new with hot water and shower; towels are provided and included in the rental price. There is a separate big room divided into three parts; the bedroom has twin beds and new memory foam mattresses, bedside tables and lamps. The bed linen are also provided and included in the rental price. There is a kitchenette next to the bedroom with a fridge, small freezer, 2 electrical hobs, coffee maker, kettle for boiling water and all necessary cutlery, crockery, cooking pans and tea towels. The sitting room has a comfortable 2-seater sofa and a bunk bed, a stereo, TV and a bookcase full of books in Swedish, English and French. There are nice rugs all over the floors and candles if you would like a cosy or romantic evening atmosphere.

Although the house does not have a washing machine, you are welcome to do your laundry in our washing machine in the main house.

The house is wooden and has been decorated mainly with handmade crafts which give a taste of tradition and homeliness. The feelings that visitors express when visiting it are those of warmth, cosiness and peace.


Garden and Exterior

The cottage and our house sit on a land of 1000 sq. m. We have only one neighbour on the right side. The three other sides to the property link to fields and a forest. The main house is not near the cottage but on the other end of the property.

The property has an alarm system with Verisure and is fully protected against fire, water and theft.

There is adequate space in front of the property to park a vehicle. It will be very safe there.

There is also a barbecue grill available and, outside, in the garden a 3x3m gazebo with wooden furniture for you to sit on a sunny day and enjoy working on your craft, reading, having a drink or just being. If you would like to be even more close to nature, you can enjoy a nice fire by the fire pit on the other side of the garden.

The garden has apple and cherry trees and berry bushes (lingonberry, blackcurrant and raspberry). It also has some rhubarb plants. You are welcome to help yourselves to all these if you fancy using them in your cooking.

Local Area

Because you will be in the middle of the countryside surrounded by forests, fields, lake and river, the best way to get around would be on foot so a sturdy pair of boots and perhaps sticks for Nordic walking would enhance your walking experience. There is a free taxi going to Ockelbo twice per week (free return journey) on Wednesdays and Fridays which you can take or you can drive to Ockelbo in your own car. In Ockelbo, there are public buses and a train station which you can use to visit other parts of the area. We will be happy to provide you with all relevant information.

In your cottage, you will find a folder with information on the local area, activities and places of interest which will most certainly keep you very busy during your stay if you are looking for activities and fun or educational outings. Some of the places of interest can be found on this website:

Mörtebo (our little village) prides itself for the weekly motion-bingo and, on the last Saturday in July, with our inter-village football competition and the village barbecue and dance with a live band.

If you are interested in shopping sprees, then you may want to plan a day trip in one of the nearby towns (Gävle or Sandviken) or in Valbo.

We would be more than happy to advise you of anything you might want information on during your stay with us.
