About Jackie and Mike Lucas
Hej! We are Mike and Jackie Lucas. We currently live in Cambridge , UK. Mike is originally from Manchester and I grew up in Lincoln. We have 2 sons- Sam is 24 and Tom is 21!
Jackie and Mike Lucas purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Jackie and Mike Lucas chose Hagfors
We love the outdoors and visiting new, unspoilt areas. Sweden is very unspoilt! Beautiful fresh air and wonderful scenery and wildlife. We love to be in and on water! which is why we choose our property. It is at the head of Lake Nain with many quiet and wonderful beaches to explore.If you like foraging in the woods, Sweden is great for picking wild blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cloudberries and mushrooms. As well as catching fish in the lake!
What makes this Cottage unique
Its a wonderful area to explore. we are surrounded by many beautiful lakes. The house offers very spacious accommodation and the views from the upstairs lounge and the garden of the lake are what we love most. We have many garden chairs, sun-loungers, tables and cushions so that relaxing in the garden is a joy! We also have a gazebo so that we can enjoy dining out in the glorious light, summer evenings and now have a large, beautiful decking area.

Nice lakeside house
House is located at a beautiful lake, large garden. Usage of boats was kind and fun. Kitchen and bathroom are basic.
We had a great week with lots of outside activity thanks to the good weather.
Excellent facilities for our extended family, 6 adults and 2 children and baby.
Great property, each group could have their own spaces. Boat, canoes and the lake for swimming was ideal. Simple type of holiday surrounded by nature. Picnic bags and plates etc. provided. Could however have done with proper pillows instead of foam pieces. Not all mosquito nets at windows intact. Some Other mosquito nets had holes. Being in the forest area there were lots of mosquitos and warning to stock up with repellant would have been helpful. 20-25 mins to nearest shops. Need to plan food. Otherwise a great time was had by all.
We are pleased that you had a great holiday and enjoyed the boats, lake and nature.
There certainly is a lot of space at the property and we love this and the tranquility here.
We try and leave everything you should need to enjoy your holiday to the full at the houses and appreciate your feedback. We will be replenishing pillows for next year and will look into providing new quality pillows and pillow protectors for our guests.
We provide mosquito nets for the beds and windows if needed. We also provide a lot of mosquito repellants in one of the kitchen drawers. We find the mosquitoes are only a problem for a couple of weeks a year and try to take precautions ie.. wear long sleeves and trousers in the evening and close doors and windows to the house at this time too.
We discuss prior to your visit to take provisions to the houses and the location of the nearest supermarkets in the area.
In summer it is a great place to have a bbq and enjoy simple food with friends and family on the outside garden decking. There is also a gazebo with mosquito netting for outside to enjoy the views down to the lake.
It was lovely to host your stay and you are very welcome to stay in the future.
Jackie and Mike.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our place in Uvanå.
Winter is a magical time in Sweden with lots of snowy activities to enjoy. We hope that you enjoyed the cross country skiing, downhill skiing, husky dog sledding, ice fishing and snow shoe hiking.
Truly memorable holiday, perfect setting
We would highly recommend Gammal Affar in Uvana for anyone looking for a taste of Sweden. It offers a traditionally Swedish summerhouse with everything that goes with it – open fires; guest stugor in the grounds; perfect lake at the end of the garden; boat and canoes; sauna; forest; flora and fauna … a perfect setting. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable for our three generations (7 of us), and beautifully decorated and furnished. It was clean and tidy when we arrived and Jackie was available at all times to answer any queries we had during our stay. The open fires made us cosy on the cooler evenings, the kitchen was well equipped and the dining room made every meal feel like a special occasion. The new hot tub was a lot of fun, (plenty of room for all of us) and the sun deck was great too. We have some amazing photos of the lake taken from the boat and bathing place, as a reminder of a truly memorable holiday. We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the good weather (our first few days were cold and wet)! By the way, we would recommend a visit to the Varmland Elk Park run by a young English guy, James. He and Jamie offer an interesting tour with lots of information and facts about Swedish Elk, as well as really hands-on contact with elks there. Thanks, Jackie, we hope to be back again in the future!
Wonderful estate with 3 houses!
Very friendly owners who leave you all possible equipment in a house with warm atmosphere. The property really has 3 houses, ideal for larger groups. The location is wonderful, very close to the lake, in rough nature, situated in a small community with about 10 other houses. Neighbors are helpful when needed. Wintertime gave us a peek into a true winter wonderland!
Dear Annebeth and family, we are really pleased that you had a great time staying at our place in Uvanå! It is quite magical during the winter season and the houses provide a warm and cosy, welcome shelter from the cold weather activities! We hope that you will be able to visit again.
You are welcome to return at any time!
A very beautiful place te stay!
Very nice and quiet place to stay in a traditional Swedish house in the middle of the Woods. We loved the lake, the sauna, walks, picking Berry's and canoeing. We saw even some wildlife.
