We spent 5 wonderful days at Amblegaard staying at Prestestova. A beautiful setting with sublime views over Sognefjord. The accommodation was immaculate, the hosts so welcoming and we enjoyed every minute of our time there. So much to do in the area, from local walks directly from Amblegaard to the glacier hikes north of Sognefjord and the ferry trip to... More

Great modern house, all the amenities. The view from the house over the lake is spectacular, the location was great for travel in the area, the owners were very nice. Even the farm grown apple juice was wonderful! The only minor issue was that the hot water could have been hotter. We stayed for 4 nights, and wished we could... More

Our party of three adults stayed in Hestehagen - a two-bedroom, one bathroom country cottage built in the early 1900s on a family farm that is in operation today. Front room looks out over the fjord. Kitchen has all the basics. Good lighting throughout the cottage. Plenty of electrical outlets. Strong wi-fi. Furniture is comfortable. Lots of firewood for the... More

Thank you for your informative and good review of our house Hestehagen. This is our smallest cottage and the only cottage with wifi at the moment. We are working with the possibility to get wifi in our other cabins as well, but for now we only have it in Hestehagen. We also have a wifi zone outside the house we... More

Amble Gård is a large farm in Kaupanger (about 11 km from Sogndal), ideally situated near Sognefjord. About 5 or 6 houses can be rented. Some are quite new, Kårhuset, the largest one (sleeps 12 people, 3 bathrooms, 4 toilets...), is an old traditional Norvegian family house. The property is owned by the Heiberg family since 1690 (!)... a long... More

We stayed in Prestestova. The farm is in a beautiful location and there are great views from the patio and living room. There are lots of mountain hikes leaving from the farm. It's a convenient location for driving around the region and there's a grocery store a short drive away. The shop on the farm is great for getting eggs,... More

We had a wonderful holiday at Amblegaard in August. Our family - aged 17 upwards - stayed in the largest house, Karhuset. It was in a fabulous position overlooking the fjord and had masses of room for everyone. We loved everything about the holiday and spent most of our time trying to catch fish or walking in the mountains. It... More

Had three wonderful days at Amblegaard. Our rental house was lovely, with great views of the fjord. The house was spacious and had a nice working kitchen.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You can choose between 7 different and traditional houses/ cottages on our farm. All houses lay freely in the nature, without near neighbours. There is beautiful view from all of them to the Sognefjord, glacier and mountains. The houses are all restored during the last years. They are comfortably furnished with a mix of Norwegian farm antiques and new furniture. The houses have beds for 4 – 12 persons.As our guests you are free to use the “glories” of the farm: There are boats laying by our quay in the Sognefjord. On the estate there are lakes, where you can catch trout. As our guest you do not have to pay fishing licence. By one of the lakes is our old mountain farm, which is at your disposal. 40 kilometres of private forestry roads bring you up to 600 metres height over the Sognefjord, with beautiful view and huge hiking areas.We usually rent out the houses for at least one week, but shorter stays are possible on request. The prices depend on which part of the year you want to stay here, and which house you choose. ... more   less
