STF Malingsbo Herrgård

More about STF Malingsbo Herrgård

Malingsbo is located right in the middle of the scenic and very Malingsbo-Kloten nature reserve, 26,000 hectares of unexploited forest land. Therefore much of everything is found in our absolute vicinity; good fishing and kayaking lakes, mushrooms and berries (cloudberries!), hiking trails and secluded forest meres for swimming.

Malingsbo is an old mountain village dating back to the 15th century, with a current population of 60 people. Many are involved in the preservation of the village's cultural environment and the development of visitor activities. Our lively rural community association holds big midsummer parties, the sports association takes care of the dance floor, a few public gardens host farmers’ markets on autumn weekends, and the catering company that offers breakfast and other meals for delivery to our accommodation.

When the ironworks in Malingsbo was closed down at the end of the 19th century, the farm was bought by the government. This cultural heritage was managed by the government until 2018. The manor has been a building monument since 1935, and has always had the strongest level of protection for buildings in Sweden, as it is considered to be of "extremely high cultural-historical value". This has contributed to Malingsbo Manor becoming Sweden's best-preserved Carolingian manor, and very easily confused with, for example, Skogaholm Manor at Skansen in Stockholm, which was partly modeled on Malingsbo.

Besides the manor itself with its two wings, the property contains around ten more houses; the old store, Handlarbostaden, Professorsvillan, Tärdgårdsbostaden, Kornskruven, the archive, etc. Three residential buildings have been carefully and thoughtfully restored and decorated to preserve the feeling of living in a historic environment.

We - Lotta von Schéele and Leif Hernborg - bought Malingsbo manor from the government in 2018, with the goal of returning the property to self-sufficiency. We live in Stockholm with our two children and commute to Malingsbo every week, all year round. Our goal is for Malingsbo manor to once again become a place full of life and activity, where time in no way stands still but where the surroundings are a constant and proud testament to times past. We want to create a place to stay at a destination for learning and recreation, seclusion and celebration.
