About Seamus McManus
A holiday spent in this beautiful part of Southern Sweden was enough to fuel our desire to call this place our home. So we embarked upon our own adventure, left our jobs and life in England and the entire family made the decision to move to Skåne & make Red Bird Farm our home and future.
Seamus McManus purchased this barn in 2013
Why Seamus McManus chose Ystad
After viewing numerous properties Red Bird Farm had a wonderful feel, and the location was ideal to suit the pursuits that we all enjoy as a family.
What makes this barn unique
For us, it's all about the wonderful position of the farm, positioned amongst gentle rolling farmland and alongside a Silver Birch woodland. You approach along peaceful lanes which lead to the farm from the historic & interesting town of Ystad, and with easy access to the stunning sandy beach & Baltic shore. The fact that we can all cycle to the beach through pine woodland and along safe roads is such a bonus. We live amongst nature, in peace & quiet, with many visitors of Red Kite, Eagles, stags, deer, hares and families of wild boar!
This classic red & white Swedish farm, with barns and farmhouse around a four-sided cobbled courtyard, is a wonderful home to have with space to run and play all day long.
