Bed & Breakfast | Sjöbacken Gård lies between Skara and Skövde, an old farm with rolling meadows by a small lake. In our newly renovated outhouse, we have made two cosy lofts, one of them is a suite with a living room. Of course there is a kitchen and a charming bathroom.
Sjöbacken Gård (Sjöbacken Farm) is an old farm that has been situated in the same place for 150 years. Open, rolling meadows and fields surround the courtyard. A huge oak is a true landmark on the way down to the small lake Hattaren. In the fields, our different animals are grazing – horses and two kinds of sheep. In the old henhouse a small flock of hens have their cosy nests. They get on very well with the farm’s three cats.
In a newly converted outhouse, we have arranged Bed & Breakfast. One loft is a suite with a living room. From the living room you have direct access to a charming kitchen and bathroom. The other loft has an entrance of it’s own. Access to kitchen and bathroom is from outside. Breakfast, sheets and towels are of course included.
Close by, you’ll find different hiking paths on and around the hill Billingen. Bathing, fishing and golf can be found nearby. Not far away is the theme park Skara Sommarland, Axevalla Travbana (horse racing) and the lake Hornborgasjön with its remarkable wild bird life. On our small lake Hattaren you can take a rowing tour and try to outwit the pikes of the lake.
In the shop we sell the products that we make ourselves. Beautiful lambskin from our own sheep. Home cooked chutney and marmalade, dried mushrooms, flavoured oil, vinegar and gourmet salt. The chutney and marmalade are made from prunes, rhubarbs, green tomatoes, apples and blackcurrant. The flavourings are chilli, herbs, mint and not least the local speciality wild garlic. We also sell handcrafts such as pottery, silver jewellery, brushes, soaps, knitwear, interior decorations, linen towels etc.
