In May 2018 we finished restoring the barn above the stables and made it a cozy restaurant and coffee shop. Here we serve tasty local and short-lived food, delicious coffee & homebaked cakes. The barn is opened every day and seats up to 100 guests.
The venue has all rights and is opened to all kinds of arrangements. Combine the dining experience on the barn with a horseback ride, a hike on the Hoven or just a stroll on the beautiful Hov beach. One of Europe’s best golf courses Lofoten Links and Lofoten Links Lodges, with perhaps Lofoten’s highest standard of accommodation, is located within a walking distance.
The restoration of the barn from the 1950s started already in 2016 and has been going on for over a year. The work was carried out by local contractors and by the farm’s own employees. To the north we have installed large windows that give beautiful view to the ocean, midnight sun and the northern lights. The tables are handmade with 100-year-old timbers by our neighbor craftswoman and the lights in the ceiling are the original milk tanks from the farm. We have taken care of the original construction so that the room gives a very authentic and rustic feel. At the same time, it is insulated according to today’s requirements and is warm and inviting throughout the year. The large fireplace and the soft retro-style chairs create a nice atmosphere even on dark winter evenings. Here you can enjoy a great meal, contemplate the view with a group of friends or just relax by the fireplace with a good book and a local beer. We are prepared to host also the youngest customers with a kids corner full of games and toys and a simple menu for kids.
The venue is as well suitable for meetings, workshops and conferences and can be reserved for this throughout the year. In the ceiling we have installed a high-class projector as well as a large canvas for film screenings and presentations. This together with a professional soundsystem and acoustic panels make the barn the perfect place for whole-day meetings and smaller conferences, as well as courses in northern lights photography and lectures or discussions.
Set up your next arrangement, Christmas table or company meeting at Låven, combined with horseback or golf activities and accommodation at Lofoten Links.
