Today, I’m continuing with my summer cottage theme to match the relaxed holiday vibe in Scandinavia right now – and the sun has come out just for the occasion! This Swedish beauty belongs to Johanna Hagbard (whose city home I featured in 2018). Johanna acquired this beautiful croft 40 kilometres (24.8 miles) from Gothenburg ten years ago. It had been derelict for many years – save for a local orienteering group who had been using it as a clubhouse due to its location in the middle of a forest. Needless to say, it needed extensive work. 

A handy couple, Johanna and her husband have slowly transformed the property into a magical year-round country escape – with a cosy interior and hand built sauna and a plunge pool. Summer days are spent outdoors looking out over the wilderness and lake in the distance and a caravan serves as an extra indoor space to hangout! 

Ready to feel inspired by the tour? Step this way! 

A magical place to spend summer, do you agree? I can imagine it’s really cosy in winter too!

Would you like to see a few more pretty Swedish crofts today? ‘Why not’ I hear you say! Pour yourself a glass of something cool and enjoy:

Oh, so pretty! 

My family and I are currently trundling up the E4 motorway on our way to Sundsvall to watch Liv swim in the Swedish nationals this week. We’ve been passing forest and more forest – with 5 hours of forest to go (it’s a 10 hour very forest-y drive in total!). I’m excited as I’ve never been to Norrland before, and we’ve booked a little cottage on an island just outside the city. I’ll share more from our adventure on my instagram stories if you’d like to follow along! 

Have a happy Wednesday!
