Secluded - yet centrally situated

Rokulla is situated at short distance to each of these sights. See map below.

Food and restaurants

Rokulla ( above) does not have a bar but you are welcome to bring your own drinks.

There are several good restaurants only minutes away by car.

 A peaceful hill

The house stands at the crest of a hill with scenic views - a delightful retreat after a long journey or a hectic day.

Children are free to romp about the vast lawns and meadows. Rokulla has many children's books, but no TV.

Children are also invited to pick berries from the many black- and red current bushes, as well as from gooseberriy-bushes  and cherry trees. And nib a reef from the big old ivy to plant at home.

Interior

The pension is a timbered building from a bygone Sweden with a spacious rural style kitchen. Originally it served as a home for the elderly like those which appear in Astrid Lindgren's tales from her childhood world.

Now Rokulla is renovated with care to preserve it's traditional turn-of-the-Century atmosphere. Ten guestrooms share 4 newly installed shower rooms and 5 WC:s.

 A couple of days could be more rewarding

The difference in price between a one day's and a two days' visit at Astrid Lindgren's World is but slight. Some of the performances are running at the same time and thusmcannot be experienced in just one day.

Hence,many guests at Rokulla might wish to stay another night. However, last minutes bookings are hard for us to grant as Rokulla usually is fully booked during the season. Choosing to book two nights from the start gives you enough time to enjoy other attractions of the area.

In two days you can visit Astrid Lindgren's World twice as well as Katthult, Bullerbyn, the old Candy workshop , the Elk Park, the thousand years old hollow oak. Or you can go fishing and swimming in one of the hidden forest lakes in the nearby.

Memories from the early 20th Century.

The large group of peoples represents some of the well known personalities of the region.

The photo is said to show the 80 years anniversary party of the legendary  “Sara of the Woods” ( the lady in the middle).

Mr. Kabaila

Rokulla supports handycraft artists of the Mombaza coast in East Africa. The turtle is an emblem of good luck and so is Sungura, the sly hare. Mr. Kabaila at Watamu has carved Rokulla's wooden door number plates and the number tokens on the room keys.
