About the property

Romantic with 2 bedroom and room for 5 people, outside Vetlanda in Småland

Tyra's Cabin

Tyra's Cabin is a log cabin and has a very charming interior. All old details are well preserved, such as the frames, doors and the wedge-sawn floor in the living room. Tyra's Cabin is a romantic gem for the couple which goes on holiday and seeks calm and quiet. The house is equally as suited for families with young children who seek country activities and time to spend with the family. In the kitchen there is a dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, stove with 4 burners and an oven. Naturally there is a fridge, freezer and washing machine. In the living room there is a comfortable sofa, chair, flat screen TV and children’s' games to enjoy in the evening or on rainy days. Tyra's Cabin is 75m2. Outside the cabin there is a lovely 40m2 patio with garden furniture and a BBQ. On the patio you have the sun all day and you can sit there and watch the sunset. You have your own garden of 900m2 with fruit trees and berry bushes. All electricity and heating is included in the rent of Tyra's Cabin. You can choose to, in addition, pay for end of tenancy cleaning and to rent bed linens and towels if you wish.


Today we have three houses here at Sällegården. Stina’s Cottage (Property: 1401235), Erik’s House (Property: 1225168), and Tyra’s Cottage (Property: 1232926) are available for booking on a daily or weekly basis, all year long. Many friends book two or three of the houses in the same week for having their holiday together. Sällegården is located in a typical Smålandian village, similar to Bullerby or Katthult in Astrid Lindgren’s children’s books. The house is painted red with white trims. On the yard, you can fish, go sailing in a rowing boat, ride a horse-drawn carriage, walk in the woods, pick mushrooms and berries, and cuddle with bunnies or the cat. Many guests come to us just for experiencing the calmness and quietness, which is a unique touch. Particularly calming is Lake Vrången, 5 km away from Sällegården. There, you have free access to a boat.

On Sällegården, there is a working farm with grazing animals during summer. In the summer of 2013, we opened our little yard shop. There you can buy eggs, the farm’s very own cold pressed apple juice, jam, cordial and handcrafts from Sällegården. The yard shop also works as a small tourist office with tourist information and free Wi-Fi. One of the larger attractions here at the farm is the cozy, carpented wooden sauna by the farm pond. The landlord speaks Swedish and English. Sällegården is charming and beautiful during every season. It is well worth a visit for genuinely experiencing Smålandia.

Welcome to Sällegården and to the Sälleteg family!

About Sandra Sälleteg

We are Sandra and Mattias Sälleteg; we live at Sällegården and run it as well. We live here with our three children. In 2006, we took the Sällehägnad farm (which is its original name) over from Mattias’ parents. In 2009 we started to rent out Erik’s House to tourists. We quickly noticed the joy of having guests on the farm and of letting others enjoy our beautiful surroundings. Today, we have three houses that we rent out to tourists and short-term stays. If you want to live and genuinely experience Småland, you have come to the right place. Welcome to Sällegården!

Sandra Sälleteg purchased this cottage in 2006

Bilderbuchurlaub in Småland

  • 5 of 5

Wir fühlten uns wunderbar entspannt an diesem Bilderbuchort wie aus Astrid Lindgrens Büchern!

Die Kaninchen, Hühner, die Seen, Sauna, Kiosk/Café... alles einfach sehr idyllisch! Das Haus auch ein traumhafter Ort. Wir kommen wieder!

Utrolig idyllisk og charmerende

  • 5 of 5

Vi boede i Tyras stue for anden gang - fordi vi simpelthen ikke kunne lade være med at komme tilbage. Huset er i sig selv super charmerende og godt indrettet til en børnefamilie. Terassen og haven er skønne private udendørsarealer, med udsigt over marker og skov. Omgivelserne omkring huset er alt hvad man forbinder med Smålandsk charme - dyr, som må kæles med, skov at lege og gå ture i og en lille sø (dammen) som børnene selv kan ro omkring på. Sandra og Mattias er meget imødekommende og hjælpsomme og har sørget for at alt hvad man har brug for er tilgængeligt. Det er bestemt ikke sidste gang vi har besøgt stedet og vi giver det vores varmeste anbefalinger.

Skøn ferie på sällegärden

  • 5 of 5

Vi har haft en rigtig dejlig ferie i tyras stuga på sällegärden og vil varmt anbefale andre at vælge dette sted.

Skovens stille ro, meget gæstfrie værter sandra og Mattias, charmerende hytte midt i smuk natur og tæt på flere af sveriges seværdigheder

Vi havde en fantastisk dag hvor vi bare var ved Vrången sø - fiskede sejlede- badede og fik mad på bålet - rigtig dejlig sted de har lavet ved søens bred

Alt i alt er vi rigtig glade for vi valgte Tyras stuga hos sandra og Mattias på Sällegärden

Wonderfull place, beautifull cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the beautifull cottage and surroundings. It was a great place for our daughter ( 2 years) with the animals nearby to visit and the swings. It's an idyllic place. Really good supermarket is about 15- 20 minutes by car in Vetlanda. Lots of places, attractions etc to see within half an hour - hour distance. Also the possibility to visit the lake and to go rowing, cycling, walking in the woods and the sauna made our holiday complete. An ideal place to escape from the busy lifestyle and enjoy the beautiful nature, animals and of course the fresh eggs from the chickens at Sällegarden en the lovely jams made by Sandra. We would really recommend it!!

Home away from home in beautiful Småland!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Sällegården in May/June, and it was awesome! Sandra and Mattias where super-friendly and instantly made us feel welcome! This was enhanced by the fact that Tyra's Cottage is a lovely place that has the feel of a genuine home, as opposed to a vacation apartment. You definitely get the sense that this house was built for people to live in (which it was), and not as yet another sterile vacation facility.

Our two children (4 years and 1 year) really enjoyed the huge garden as well as the swing and bunnies on the premises. The nearby lake (5 minutes walk) and sauna are extras that we gladly used.

As for activities, you have an abundance of choices: rowing or fishing with a small boat that comes with the house, elk parks, Astrid Lindgrens Värld (a highlight – with or without children!), longer day-trips to the coast, hiking, or generally enjoying the great nature in Småland – it's hard to get bored around Sällegården!

We would recommend a stay at Tyra's Cottage, and we plan to come back!

Ferien in Tyras Cottage Sällegarden

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine sehr schöne Ferienwoche in Tyras Cottage Sällegarden verbracht. Das Ferienhaus ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet und bietet sämtlichen Komfort. Es hat eine eigene Waschmaschine, Geschirrspüler und auch in der Küche sind alle nützlichen Utensilien vorhanden.

Wer ein wenig Ruhe sucht und sich an der schönen Natur erfreut, ist im Sällegarden genau richtig. Mit Spaziergängen durch den Wald, Beeren sammeln und Ruderboot fahren, haben wir die Ferien genossen. Auch durften wir eine schöne Kutschenfahrt mit Grossvater macht. Im Hofladen gab es leckere selbst gemachte Sirupe und Konfitüren zu kaufen. Ein wirklich empfehlenswerter Urlaub. Vielen Dank für den schönen Aufenthalt!

Sällegården is elevated and surrounded by meadows. The landscape is surging with wood, lakes, fields and meadow lands. Within 15km there are 6 very nice sandy beaches. The closest sandy beach is called Aspö and is situated only 6 km away from Sällegården.

Childrens' favourite Astrid Lindgren's World is only 55 km away from Sällegården. At Astrid Lindgren's World all of Astrid's stories are turned into reality in a very professional way.

5km away from Sällegården is Vetlanda municipality's biggest tourist attraction; Kleva Gruva. Kleva is really cool as you get to wander down into the cave and even climb up steps 30m into the cave.

If you want to try on gold mining then Ädelfors Guldvaskning is very good. There you'll have a professional guide who will teach you to mine for gold.

If you're interested in petting the king of the forest; the moose, then there are several moose parks within a 50-70 km radius to choose from.

During the winter alpine skiing in Kättilsås, 11 km away is popular.
