The Woodhouse in the fishing village of Agger on the northwestern coast of Jutland is located less than a kilometre from the North Sea, on a property with mature trees and plenty of natural vegetation. This surrounding woods played a significant role in the design of the house. In fact, its large window fronts almost invite the trees inside. The terrace offers sheltered seating with beautiful views across the lawn and through the forest.

The Woodhouse consists of a main house, an outbuilding, and a terrace that connects the two buildings. The main house features an open living area with a fireplace, kitchen and dining area that opens out to nature on two sides through windows that extend up to the gables. On the eastern side of the main building you will find a bathroom as well as the master bedroom complete with its own almost five-metre high window front and views out into the surrounding woodlands. The covered terrace leads from the living area to the west-facing outbuilding. Here there is another bathroom and two bedrooms with double beds. One of the bedrooms features a loft with two additional beds for children.

What to do

Long walks along the North Sea, hiking in the Thy National Park, mountain bike tours, cycling, horse riding, kite and windsurfing, standup paddling, kayaking, fishing in the North Sea and the fjord, eating out at the local fish restaurants, wellness, day trips to Skagen (the northern tip of Denmark) and Aarhus (European Capital of Culture 2017).

Why we like this house

Exciting architecture and interiors in a simple, beautiful Scandinavian design. The house has a spacious, airy ambience thanks to its wide visual axes – you can see straight through the house to all sides.

Holidays with family and friends. Also great for couples. The area is a paradise for surfers and nature lovers.

  1. We spend one beautiful summer week in this house and enjoyed every moment. The hours is very well equipped, especially the eBikes were great fun. The house is perfectly located in a small village, totaly quiet and peaceful. The area is just marvelous, the beaches were almost empty and the close nature reserve is perfect for hiking tours. The hosts Mette and Peter were always reachable for any kind of questions, we will definitly come back.

  2. Das Haus stellt durch seinen winkelförmigen Grundriss, der geschickt mit Terrassen die Sonne an jeder Ecke empfängt, eine Besonderheit in der sonst einheitlichen Ferienhaussiedlung dar. Oberflächen und Ausstattung sind sehr geschmackvoll. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder.

  3. Das Haus von Mette und Peter ist wunderschön – sowohl von der sehr durchdachten und ansprechenden Architektur als auch von der Gemütlichkeit. Wir haben uns in dem sehr gut ausgestatteten Haus und in Agger sehr wohl gefühlt und werden ganz bestimmt wiederkommen.
    Mette und Peter waren sehr nette Gastgeber – bis bald.

  4. Vi – min kæreste og jeg – havde det mest fantastiske ophold i Woodhouse, Agger. Selvom vi var off-season (november) var det lige, hvad vi havde brug for. Flot arkitektur og meget gennemført. Hver dag ugen igennem fandt vi nye linjer at studere og sammenhængen i huset og gæsteafdelingen fungerer 100 %.
    Stranden er 10 min væk på gåben. En dag gik vi Flade Sø rundt – virkelig skønt. Naturen udenfor indbyder til at koble af, men huset i sig selv er også så lyst og rart, at man har lyst til at opholde sig indendøre med en god bog.

    I off-season er det en god idé at købe stort ind i Hurup, hvor der er masser af indkøbsmuligheder.

    Vi kan kun anbefale Woodhouse, og vi håber på selv at komme tilbage.

  5. Wir haben zwei Wochen in diesem wunderschönen Haus verbracht und haben uns vom ersten Tag an sehr wohl dort gefühlt. Mette und Peer sind zudem sehr nette und zuverlässige Gastgeber.
    Das Haus ist umgeben von Wasser und innerhalb weniger Minuten ist man zu Fuß am Wasser. Das Haus ist außerdem super ausgestattet.
    Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen und können das Haus nur empfehlen.
