The Old Cowshed

The Old Cowshed sitting room

The Old Cowshed is tucked away in a field of lava just 18 km south of Húsavík. The location is ideal for all nature lovers because the apartment has not only a stunning view to the Kinnarfjöll mountains and enjoys the peace of a lava field with birch forest. It is also located on a running diary farm and offers guests a glimpse into Icelandic farm life with cows, sheep, goats, chicken and of course horses. Perfect for families where the kids can enjoy themselves outside with a rabbit in their lap, say hello to the goats or perhaps give the lambs warm milk to drink. A fairy-tale forest with playground awaits little guests. Hiking paths invite guests to discover dramatic lava formations on the property. The farm also offers horse rental for beginners and experienced riders.
