The Nordic Nomad

Søllested, Denmark

Vipp Farmhouse

What’s the retreat in a nutshell?

A 1775 gardener’s cottage, complete with the whitewashed facade and thatched roof found in traditional Danish rural abodes, has been converted into a secluded rural and minimalist retreat on the southern Danish island of Lolland. It neighbours endless fields, forests and green gardens. Vipp Farmhouse is part of Danish design brand Vipp’s ever-expanding portfolio of unique and innovative hospitality experiences around the Nordic region, including Vipp Shelter in Sweden, Vipp Loft, Vipp Chimney House and Vipp Pencil Case in Denmark, as well as The Bolder in Norway.

What are the rooms like?

Inside the rustic miniature farmhouse is a thoroughly modern interior by Copenhagen-based interior designer Julie Cloos Mølsgaard. The compact 88 square metre house is made up of three bedrooms, an open plan kitchen and living space and a bathroom. It can host a total of six guests at a time. One of the splendid interior’s main features is the original wooden beams that are kept untouched and pair nicely with the sleek Vipp kitchen and furniture.

What else?

The Vipp Farmhouse habitat sits on the 1,400 acres estate of Søllestedgaard. The estate has been owned and run by the Jørgensen family for over 200 years. It also boasts Denmark’s largest private greenery Den Grønne Verden. A basket of biodynamic vegetables, herbs and flowers can be picked up at the farm shop, housed in a former stable. You can also use the fishing gear to catch lunch in the nearby pond. For those who prefer to leave the holiday cooking to the professionals, there is an estate restaurant named Spiseriet that serves lunch and dinner.

What’s the area like?

Lolland, also known as the pancake island because of its flatness, is the fourth largest island of Denmark. The rural area has been working hard to shed its bad rep as an area in decline due to high unemployment, when in fact it is a region under rapid development. Known for its natural beauty, Lolland is the place to go for those who enjoy relaxed days on the beach (there are a total of 26 to choose from) followed by visits to local farm shops in search of the best produce.
