Summer stroll

Stroll down here for a long walk, traditional farm buildings and sunday fairs. Worth a visit in the summer holidays, as more activities are on.

We went there to see any chances there is a open farm day. This farm has been there from 1700. This is old farm and maintained for heritage for the young to learn. Few buildings or rooms converted to small museum. It is big estate and lake beside golf course.

Went there on a sunday fair. Visited the museum on a guided tour . It was nice but a small place showing the Anker family history. The best part was the dance show at the ball room. The elderly people involved did really well. Opposite to the museum, there is a barn with sheep, chickens and pigs. The main attraction... More

A family that participated importantly in the creation of The Constitution of Norway and subsequently the independence of Norway. The Mansion has been well conserved and is well worth a visit. Situated by the Bogstad Lake the view is perfect both summer... More

The food was lovely, simple, but nice, the atmosphere is very quaint. Will make it a must next time I have foreign visiters as it really gives you a feel of how life in Norway on a farm was back in the old days. I noticed a wedding there. Makes sense, the setting is perfect.

Having returned I would have to say that Bogstad is a lovely setting. The cafe was overpriced so I would recommend bringing your own picnic. I have a 17 month old son and having read the website about having many animals to see, we only came across 2 cows and a few lambs and sheep. That was perhaps a bit... More
