FOOD & WINE
Sweden’s southernmost region of Skåne has gained a strong foothold in gastronomic circles and is has been coined ‘the pantry of Sweden’. The area of Kullen takes its fair share with a large number of organic farms and farm shop, vineyards, apple orchards, restaurants and shops were you can get a taste of nature’s treasures and try out local specialties.
Within walking distance from the house, you find Södåkra Vingård, (vineyard) Engelbrekts æblemosteri, (1 km) (apple orchard shop) Flickorna Lundgren, (1,5 km) (historic bakery) Svanshal Kro (1,5 km) (restaurant).
Note: Check current opening hours, many places are seasonal!

The nearest supermarket is in Jonstorp; ICA Jonstorp, approximately 5 km.
For larger grocery shopping - we recommend Höganäs; City Gross, Lidl, Systembolag, (specialty store for wine and beer which cannot be bought in supermarkets!) clothing, bars, restaurants etc. For major shopping and clothing stores, Väla Centrum in northern Helsingborg is the place to go – this is a large mall with everything, only 20 minutes by car from the house.
The city of Ängelholm about 15 km east is also good for shopping, with a nice pedestrian street, cafes and a city square with summer activities, flea-markets, concerts etc.
We also recommend a visit to Spritan, just outside the city of Helsingborg. This is an old factory where liquor was once produced, now a quint area for shopping, exhibitions, food, brewery and more.
200 meters from the house is a tiny quay; Bökebäck, where it is possible to swim and fish.
Other beaches we recommend:
5 km Farhult Strandbad (sandy beach)
18 km Sibirien, Ängelholm (large sandy beach)
4 km Arild Strandbad (stone/quay)
8 km Kvikbadet - Höganäs City Beach (sandy beach, mini golf, cafe, restaurants)
10 km Margreteberg, north of Höganäs (sandy beach)
