Generel Information

Norrby is situated in Ydre on the boarder between Småland and Östergötland.

The closest cities are Tranås (25 km) and Eksjö (35 km). Norrby is approximately 350 km from Malmö, 250 km from Gothenburg and 300 km from Stockholm. A village shop, café and pharmacy are located in Asby, just 3 km from Norrby.

The mansion and the estate have a long history. Among other things, there are burial plots and relics of antiquity from the Iron Age. Most of the cottages where built by our family during the 19th century. All of them have unique names with adherent anecdotes and histories. In recent years we have modernised the house and cottages installing water and sewage system. The houses are situated far from each other and they are all well protected and private. A stay at Norrby is an experience of nature spiced with history and culture.

We run forestry and a smaller ecological farming livestock.

The beach

The forest
We are proud of the forest at Norrby. Nowhere is the possibility of recreation so great! There are plenty of wild animals and the vegetation is rich. Some areas are specifically interesting with large habitat of key biotopes and rare birds. In the late summer and autumn one can fill the baskets with berries and mushrooms.
