Heddan Farmstead


Heddan Farmstead was reclaimed in the 17th century. It is a mountain farm, at least when compared with the region's more low-lying farms, with many restored buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries. A part of the main building, which served as an open-hearth room till about 1910, is probably much older. Today there are eight buildings around the courtyard. A mill, small barns and mountain huts are also restored. Altogether 27 houses belong to the farm. More of them are used for overnight accomodation, with 50 beds altogether. Heddan Farmstead offers overnight stay with self service, breakfast or full board and lodging. Traditional dishes are served. The farm is in operation and features a number of animals. Overnight accommodations are available with the option of participating in the care of the animals. Activities related to culture and nature are arranged. In "Låven" (1995) there are meeting facilities for 100 persons. Heddan Farmstead opened its own farm museum in 2002. The surrounding hills have 25 km of marked trails and beaver watching is possible during June, July and August.
