Idyllic setting for family holiday. We did some day trips but also spent a lot of time just exploring the local woodland & coastline or sitting on the terrace while the children played in the garden. It is a decent size and well stocked for 8 people (though only one toilet).
Glad we booked one 8 seater car as parking would have been difficult with 2 cars (although the owner’s mum lives next door where there is a lot of space so you may possibly be able to negotiate parking there - she seemed to want to be very helpful but unfortunately we don’t speak Norwegian and she doesn’t speak English!).
Only issue for us, travelling with children, was that many of the bedroom windows don’t have curtains or have only very thin blinds - which meant early starts with summer sunrise being so early. Would recommend taking portable blackout blinds!
Also, there are 5 life jackets available to use with the boat, but only one is a small child’s one. We found this out before and took our own for the other children - but worth knowing as the fjords is swimmable but very cold and deep.
We had a lovely week at Lillian's cabin with our three month old baby. The cabin is nicely situated on the island overlooking the beautiful fjord, is very peaceful and quiet and was an excellent place to unwind and relax.
The cabin itself is really nicely kitted out and felt very comfortably and homely. While there is no running water inside the cabin, there is a pump with a filter just outside for filling buckets, making it straightforward to refill water for washing and added to the 'back to nature' feel.
The cabin has its own little bay on the island so while there are other cabins on the island it is not overlooked and felt quite private. We had good luck with the weather and swimming in the fjord was lovely. We also made use of the little red rowing boat to go out on the fjord and explore some of the other small islands.
Lillian was very friendly and helped us out on the phone with our questions. All in all we had a fantastic time and would love to have the chance to stay again one day.
