Sjöbacken Gård, a 150-year-old soldier's cottage, is situated by the calm lake Hattaren. Stay the night with a view over the rolling pasture land where horses, Gute and Gotland sheep graze. Stride out after a refreshing breakfast and walk in the fields or visit the small farm shop.
Sleep well in the loft
From the courtyard you enter the sleeping loft suite, which has a living room and direct access to the charming kitchen and bathroom. The other loft at Sjöbacken Gård is small but very cosy. The kitchen and bathroom are accessed from outside.

Close to nature, plenty of adventures
Row out on the small lake Hattaren and try to outwit the pike. Rent a bicycle and explore the area. There are beautiful hiking trails around Billingen, which is not too far away. The farm is also close to Skara Sommarland, Axevalla trotting track and Hornborgasjön, famous for its crane dance and other birds.
Don’t forget to check out the farm shop, which sells products from the farm as well as arts and crafts and beautiful everyday objects from different designers. The range includes lamb skins from the farm’s own animals, homemade chutneys and marmalades, flavoured oils, vinegar and gourmet salt.
