Welcome to Hammartorps Gardens
We warmly welcome visitors to our very special place – our lakeside summer cottage Hammartorps Gardens.
Located an hour’s drive North of Stockholm in the coastal countryside of Roslagen, Hammartorp is a traditional red-painted Swedish cottage and garden nestled in an idyllic setting.
The one acre South facing garden and its unique timber buildings, have carefully been crafted over 15 years. With stunning views over the lake of Erken this Swedish version of a Cottage Garden includes herbaceous borders, lawns, terraced areas, a boathouse, an aviary and small plant nursery. Especially spectacular in early summer, when hundreds of peonies bloom amongst irises and daylilies.
Henning, Lotta, Wilma and Anton look forward to seeing you!
Our enthusiasm for peonies has accumulated into hundreds of varieties throughout the garden, offering a stunning display in early summer.
