Nes Farmstead

Share

Until property laws were revised in 1912, Nes was a typical example of a small west coast group farm with two farms, Oppistovo and Nistovo. Four buildings from what is now Nes Farmstead were sold and moved to Oslo in 1921, where they have since 1948 comprised part of the west coast exhibition at The Norwegian Museum of Cultural History on Bygdøy. The current owners of Nes have invested a great deal of time and energy in renovating the old buildings that remain there. Four buildings, all from the 1700s and 1800s, have been renovated. A building called "Idnestova", from 1863, was moved here and renovated, and now holds two selfcatered flats with a high standard. Even the old goat-house, probably from the 1700s, has been renovated and is now a small furnished flat. The entire farm complex and cultural landscape are attractive and offer new experiences for the visitor, either on his own or with the help of the managers. A boathouse, pier, boat and beach are only 200 m away.
