This little brick house located on a nature plot near a forest is surrounded by typical North Frisian countryside. The old village school dating to 1895 previously housed a classroom and a small teacher’s apartment. Many characteristic features of that time have been preserved during renovation: Art Nouveau doors, a fireplace from the 1920s or more than two meters high original windows with glazing bars. Maps and gymnastic equipment are reminiscent of the former use of the building. Different from the old school times, however, is the generous spatial impression with a 50 sqm living room that opens seven meters to the roof. The bedrooms are located in the attic: Two double rooms and galleries with four more beds accommodate up to eight people.There is a Finnish sauna in an annex.

What to do

Cycling (bike rental is around the corner), tennis, golf, horse riding, swimming (several swimming spots nearby), organ concerts in St. Laurentius Church, excursions to Sylt (train connection approx. 30 minutes) and to the islands and Halligen in the UNESCO Wadden Sea World Heritage (7 km away by ferry), Emil Nolde Museum in Seebüll (30 minutes), Husum (20 km). Trips to nearby Denmark.

Why we like this house

A house furnished with great attention to detail, which offers plenty of space. If you like cooking, you will enjoy the well-equipped kitchen and the children will love the gymnastics equipment. The location is perfect for exploring the North Frisian coast and the islands.

  2. Wir waren im September 2019 für drei Wochen in der Harmschool und wären gerne noch länger geblieben. Das ruhig gelegene Anwesen mit wunderschönem, grossen Garten ist mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, man fühlt sich sofort zu Hause. Die Küche enthält allerbestes Inventar, die Sauna entschädigt für Regentage. Auch der Service mit Schlüsselübergabe, Endreinigung und Gärtner ist vorbildlich – wir kommen wieder !

A wonderful historic home that serves both as an excellent base for trips to any locations in the region such as the nearby islands, and also as a cozy and tastefully decorated house where one can unwind by cooking, reading and enjoying the beautiful natural surroundings! Many thanks for a most relaxing couple of days!

  4. Ein super schönes, gemütliches Haus, das mit sehr viel Liebe eingerichtet ist. Ein großer und lauschiger Garten lädt außerdem zum Verweilen ein. Langenhorn ist ein toller Ausgangspunkt für viele Aktivitäten und Ausflüge in Schleswig Holstein.

  5. Ein spannendes Haus, schön saniert, vollständig eingerichtet, in idealer Lage zwischen den Sehenswürdigkeiten Nordfrieslands und mit einem überaus freundlichen Empfang: Wären es nicht 1.020 Kilometer Wegstrecke, würden wir öfter kommen. Aber so bleibt uns und den Kindern eine tolle Erinnerung an Schleswig-Holstein. Danke!
