About Seamus McManus

A holiday spent in this beautiful part of Southern Sweden was enough to fuel our desire to call this place our home. So we embarked upon our own adventure, left our jobs and life in England and the entire family made the decision to move to Skåne & make Red Bird Farm our home and future.

Seamus McManus purchased this barn in 2013

Why Seamus McManus chose Ystad S

After viewing numerous properties Red Bird Farm had a wonderful feel, and the location was ideal to suit the pursuits that we all enjoy as a family.

What makes this barn unique

For us, it's all about the wonderful position of the farm, positioned amongst gentle rolling farmland and alongside a Silver Birch woodland. You approach along peaceful lanes which lead to the farm from the historic & interesting town of Ystad, and with easy access to the stunning sandy beaches & Baltic shore. The fact that we can all cycle to the beach through pine woodland and along safe roads is such a bonus. We live amongst nature, in peace & quiet, with many visitors of Red Kite, Eagles, stags, deer, hares and families of wild boar!

This classic red & white Swedish farm, with barns and farmhouse around a four-sided cobbled courtyard, is a wonderful home to have with space to run and play all day long.

There really is no shortage of things to do and see with easy access from Red Bird Farm such as the endless white sand beaches, with inland wood walks.

Fyledalen - regarded as the best place in Northern Europe to view birds of prey in their natural habitat.

Stenshuvud National Park - an area of outstanding natural beauty

Easy access to Bornholm via the ferry for day trips

Cycling and walking along the beautiful Österlen trail.

The animal park at Ystad.

Golfing at in excess of seventy courses in the county.

Skåne's largest amusement park near Tomelilla is just 15 minutes away.

Walk in the footsteps of Wallander and see many of the very familiar filming locations in Ystad.

Easy routes to Malmö or Copenhagen for 'Big city' night-life or shopping.

Lot's of opportunities to enjoy 'Fika' in the many, many lovely cafes that can be found in the area and of course sample the culinary delights that can be found in the wonderful little fishing villages along the coast.

Add all of the above to the opportunity to participate in equestrian, water sports, hunting and fishing and we still wouldn't have it all covered!
