Having conceived and running the B&B ourselves, we always have sustainability in mind.

respecting and working with people working locally.

being part of the local network, respecting the environment, promoting local partners and fossil free activities.

Here are a some actions we take to be more sustainable:


- we serve organic breakfast with locally sourced products (Brukets Godaste bakery, Hansen coffee roastery,  Evenstorp Gård jam producer, Fröbacken for the eggs...), bought in bulk to avoid packaging.


- we propose skincare products from L:a Bruket, organic and made in West Sweden.


- we use eco-friendly detergents only (Svanenmärket, the Nordic eco-label).


- the sheets and towels are made of organic cotton (GOTS certified) and the laundry service has a high commitment in sustainability (fossil free delivery, ecological detergent, multiple eco-label, Svanenmärken).


- 95% of the furnitures are second hands. The new furnitures (beds mostly) are made in Sweden.


- we are part of the local network to promote local and sustainable employment.


- we promote the local nature reserves.


- we promote low emission activities (cycling, hiking, canoeing).


- the garden is managed in such a way as to promote bio-diversity.


- the house is heated with locally sourced pellets (sawmill residue).


- during the renovation, materials have been reused when possible. New materials (like flooring) are mostly FSC certified and  made in Sweden.

We are part of Hållbarhetsklivet initiative for a more sustainable tourism in West Sweden
