In the heart of Bergslagen, on the edge of the deep and magical Långblåskogen forest, lies Kattbäcksgården.

Here you can rent a cottage and do lots of different activities, or just rest and get in shape.

In the summer we run Tabata interval training every Saturday at 15. Click on underlined words for more info.

Rent a cottage

We have two cottages for rent


One of the cottages is a traditional "friggebod", 10 m2 indoors. It has a bunk bed that can be taken down and used as a double bed and a pull-out bed, so the cottage is suitable for 2-3 people.

The cottage has electricity and is winter-friendly, so you can actually live here in the winter too!

Price: USD 35 / night, USD 150 / week


Things to do at the farm

Get in shape

Cykel på väggen

There are very nice paths and forest roads around the farm. Cycling, hiking or running. There is also a cycle path that runs around the entire lake Väsman, 46 km in total. The tour is called Väsman Runt . It is an old railway embankment that is paved and the signage is excellent. It is also possible to go inline skating and roller skiing on the bike path. You can rent bicycles from us, or borrow if you help maintain them.

Get in shape during holidays

We sell Herbalife and coach you to a better lifestyle. A good form depends 80% on the food, 20% on the training and 100% on the commitment.

In addition to training, there are good opportunities for bird watching.

Lake Glaningen is 2 km away and is known for its bird life. Another nice place where you can watch birds is in Norsen, which is also within walking distance. At Norsen there are also small limestone caves.
