Barn House and Farm House + Shelter

Barn House and Farm House + Shelter

The Odsherred region is located directly on the Baltic Sea, in the north-west of the Danish island of Zealand and around an hour from Copenhagen. Several nature reserves, wild beaches and vast dune landscapes line the coast here, while the hilly landscape in the hinterland offers fascinating views into the distance. Here, architect and designer Leif Jørgensen and his wife, designer Mette Bache, have (re)built an ensemble of three houses: Farm House, Barn House and Shelter.

The soul of the original farmhouse can still be felt in the old Farm House with its thatched roof and mullioned windows: the low ceilings, wood-panelled walls and simple wooden furniture are reminiscent of earlier times and create a cosy atmosphere. The L-shaped, minimalist Barn House was added by the architects and forms a charming contrast to the historic farmhouse with its clay-plastered walls, raw concrete floors and open wooden ceilings.

In its spatial openness, the new building echoes the character of a barn: The living area up to the 6.5 metre high gable offers space for larger groups and social gatherings with its fireplace, a large kitchen and dining area and a seating area. Large windows offer perfectly framed views of nature and Sejerø Bay. The gallery offers a wonderful retreat to read in peace or simply relax. The entire interior is flooded with light, bright and friendly. Individual design pieces – whether furniture or lighting – as well as colour-coordinated textiles are evidence of a fine feel for materials and colours. For all design enthusiasts: you can also buy the specially designed interior in Leif’s shop – and take a piece of your holiday home with you.

The third unit recently added to the ensemble is a tiny house, the Shelter: the tree house, which stands on steel stilts and is completely clad in pine and spruce wood, offers a minimum of comfort in a small space and everything you could wish for on a relaxing holiday: a large bed, a kitchenette, a shower – and the feeling of spending the night in the middle of nature. Through a large, north-facing panoramic window, you can watch pheasants or deer early in the morning or admire the starry sky at night.

What to do

The region, which has been designated a UNESCO Global Geopark, offers a wide range of opportunities for outdoor activities - whether hiking, cycling, water sports, fishing or birdwatching. There are many picturesque villages in the surrounding area, and Copenhagen can be reached by car in around an hour.

Why we like this house

The three buildings complement each other wonderfully in their diversity: The Farm House promises cosiness, the Barn House thrives on aesthetic minimalism and the Shelter offers a direct connection to nature.

This house is great for

The houses can be rented individually or together. This makes a holiday for two or a holiday with the (extended) family, with two families or with friends possible.

Thanks to Mette and Leif, we had a wonderful time at the farm house for the second time. We deeply fell in love with the wonderful property. The views are magical, there is a bench and table anywhere you need it to enjoy views or the sun. The garden offers so many herbs and saisonal fruit which makes it very special. And this year we were also impressed about the new implemented architectural Ideas. The beach is close by and family friendly, the pine trees and wild roses create wonderful views. All recommendations from Mette and Leif Concerning bakery/ Restaurant etc round off the experience! Thanks a lot! We really loved it! 5 Stars!!!!

Mette and Life created a almost heavenlike place with a stunning view over the beach and a so cosy (or should I say „hygge“) place inside. We loved all the beautiful details in and around the house!

With a family of 5 persons (3x children) we had the pleasure to stay at the amazing Barn and Farm House. The views and house itself are all as advertised and it is a 20 minute jog (or 5 min drive) down to the beach. Great variety of restaurants and places to visit nearby. Leif and Mette will give you their personal recommendations on arrival.

Dear Mette, Dear Leif, Thank you once again for the wonderful stay with you. We all enjoyed it very much. Your farm was an ideal place for our meeting (business retreat of 8 entrepreneurs) and your catering far exceeded our expectations. Thank you for letting us be your guests and thank you for your hospitality.
