Højby, Denmark

Highlights and descriptions have been auto-translated from Danish

Highlights from Nathalie

  1. The sauna look is what the host calls the preserved pine wood of the cottage, which gives the house a certain charm and cottage feeling
  2. On the large terrace facing the open garden, you can enjoy the sun from early mornings to late, warm summer evenings
  3. Here are three adult-sized bikes you can borrow and set off through the summer landscape to the popular beaches in the area, which are just 10-15 minutes' bike ride away

Close to both the forest and a beautiful beach, this cozy, newly renovated cottage at Ellinge Lyng in what the host himself calls the sauna look with real cottage charm - so much, you will find that here still smells of new wood when you enter. So if you're looking for that special cottage feeling, this house is a charming and cosy proposition. It's decorated in a classic cottage style with fine Scandinavian details that go well with the old pine preserved on both floors and walls. This gives the rooms in the house a warm, cosy atmosphere that feels like stepping into a world far away from everyday life. The kitchen and living room are open plan, and the spacious living room with its large, soft sofa in the living room has room for the whole family to snuggle up inside when it rains. There's also a cosy corner with a lovely daybed for you to put your feet up on and bask in the warmth of the wood-burning stove. Adjacent to the living room is the large wooden terrace where you can enjoy the sunshine from morning to night. The summer house is just a five-minute walk from the beautiful forest Ellinge Indhegning, and close to several very popular beaches. Hop on one of the cottage's three rental bikes and take a ride to Højby Strand, for example, which is just a ten-minute bike ride away - or Gudmindrup Strand, a fifteen-minute bike ride from the cottage. A must when you are in the cottage here is also to visit the beautiful coral reefs at Ellinge Lyng, which is a lagoon between two sand reefs.

Meet your host


Host since February 2022

My name is Nathalie, and my family and I live in Vesterbro. We have had the cottage since 2020 and use it as a sanctuary where we can meet up with friends and family. I grew up in Odsherred myself and we wanted a cottage in an area where we knew a bit about all the good places, so we can really make the most of it when we're there. We love that the cottage is close to the forest and the beach - and it's also close to super good eateries and takeaways.
