The space

Gammalrud is a farm, which is located in the northern part of the peninsula, which goes into Lake Viken and is called Vika forests. Here we conduct forestry and lamb production since 1976. Surrounded by the beautiful forest, lake Viken (the highest point of Göta Kanal) and the hospitality of Thord and Ulla, this is your idyllic home away from home.

We have renovated the old farm dairy, "Mejeriet", and made it into a nice home that we rent out to guests. The ground floor consists of a hallway, a kitchen suited for 8 persons and a large living room with a cozy fireplace. The living room floor is made of hand-made bricks from the old brickworks in the nearby village Horn. The upper floor consists of one large room with wooden floor and alcoves for 6 persons. As our guests you are more than welcome to borrow bicycles, if you feel like going for a ride.

At the old canal landing, we have built a large boathouse. Here is a place, not just for boats, but also for gatherings and parties. If you´d like to go fishing you are more than welcome to rent our small boat to try your luck catching pike, perch or any of the other fish in lake Viken.

Gammalrud is a farm dating back to the Middle Ages. A full list of previous owners dates back to 1498. In the 1600s, Gammalrud became a manor when the first corp de logi was built by Thord Jönsson Reuterberg. In the 1800s, Gammalrud became part of the Swedish industrial history by one of the owners, Theodor Winborg, also known as “Ättikskungen” , the founder of Winborg´s vinegar and later by his brother in law, Helge Palmqrantz, an inventor and industrialist with machine factories in Stockholm. Both agricultural tools and weapons were made there.

A machine gun, designed by Helge Palmqrantz to be part of the defense on Karlsborgs fortress, can be seen at the fortress museum.

Ulla and Thord's house is very clean and the hosts are very friendly. The landscape was wonderful and the house is perfect to relax some days in the nature. We recommend to go by car because it's far away from the next bigger city.

We had a lovely stay at Thord & Ulla's place. Secluded and peaceful surrounded by forest. A lot of effort has been put into converting an old dairy into this charming little cottage. The lake nearby would be fantastic for a swim/picnic but unfortunately we didn't get time! A car …

Thord and Ulla's place is wonderful! It is quite a long drive to get to it, but it is worth it! The home is charming and well kept. It was lovely to eat our dinner out in front of the house at a cheery table. We also loved wading in the lake down by their boat house. We were…
