In northwest Denmark on the edge of the Thy National Park, lies a remote design-led retreat that offers refuge in an otherwise sunny, coastal landscape.
The house is located less than a kilometre from the North Sea and sits on a large property with large, mature trees and plenty of natural vegetation. The surrounding woods played a significant role in the design of the house. In fact, its large windows almost appear to invite the trees inside.
The house was designed by Danish architect Søren Sarup of Puras Architects who have fashioned a contemporary Danish holiday home using simple, natural materials that take cues from the North Sea landscape. Modern Danish design has informed the minimalist interior, which is dressed in cosy fabrics and a muted natural palette.
The abundant use of warm timber throughout naturally given rise to the retreat’s name - Woodhouse.
The house consists of a main house, an outbuilding, and a terrace that connects the two buildings. The main house features an open living area with a fireplace, kitchen and dining area that opens out to nature on two sides through windows that extend up to the gables.
On the eastern side of the main building, you will find the master bedroom + bathroom complete with its own five-metre high window frontage with views out into the surrounding woodlands.
Woodhouse comfortably fits 6 people in the 3 bedrooms, kids have the option to sleep in the loft over the beds in one of the bedrooms. The house covers everything you'll need whether you are just a couple, a group of friends or family getting together for a vacation in beautiful surroundings.
The house is rented out only on a weekly basis or for weekends. Primarily a stay is from Saturday to Saturday in high season.
The house is located in the fishing village of Agger on the northwest coast of Jutland, Woodhouse is the perfect base for exploring the surrounding coastline and the Thy National Park. Whether it be mountain biking through the woods, horseback riding, windsurfing, fishing, or hiking, the options are endless.
The house is about a 2-hour drive from both Aalborg and Aarhus. It is located in one of the more remote parts of Denmark so it is recommended you drive if you are planning to explore more of the countryside.
Travel here by train is an option with regular connections to Copenhagen as well as into Germany. However this is probably an option for the more adventurous, the train journey to Copenhagen, for example, will take around 7 hours.
