Brekkegarden farm is situated in Gjerdsvika, on the spectacular west coast of Norway. The farm house was built in 1893, and whilst fully restored, all the original elements of the building, including the timber walls, are retained. The farms' natural beauty is outstanding, including a large garden with a stream running through, and plentiful opportunities for walks and excursions. We warmly welcome all guests, couples, families, groups of friends, business travellers. Animals are welcome.
Gjerdsvika is a village in the municipality of Sande, just north of Stadt (west cape). The village is small, but has a grocery shop, facilities for petrol filling and a new gym. The townships of Fosnavåg and Ulsteinvik are nearby, and the farm is a good starting point for trips to the bird island of Runde, Ålesund and the Geiranger fjord.
Our guests have access to the entire farm area, including garden with roses, berrybushes, fruit-trees and vegetables. Free-range chickens live on the farm, and guests are welcome to enjoy fresh eggs. Kitchen is fully restored with a large gas cooker, and with an extra large kitchen table and a wood burner, the kitchen is the natural heart of the house and an ideal gathering place.
The hosts live nearby, and we are always accessible to assist our guests if needed.
Brekkegarden is part of the Norwegian NaCuHeal foundation.
