There’s so much to enjoy here at Dambækgaard, with activities for all ages in peaceful surroundings.
Our dog, Balder, is always interested in goings-on around the farm, and loves attention from guests young and old! Don’t be scared if he barks when you arrive – he just likes to let us know when we have guests. The cats are busy catching mice in the stables and out in the fields – and you might catch a glimpse of some kittens.
You’ll always meet the pigs when you’re out and about in the garden, and they love to come and say hello. The ducks can be found hanging out together outside the dining hall, and you might catch them talking to their reflection in the glass door! You might come across some eggs in surprising places, as our free-range hens aren’t always so picky with where they choose to lay. The goats are usually out in the high grass in the pasture, plotting how to get into our vegetable garden. And the geese can be found hanging out with the boar, keeping watch for intruders.
On the daily feeding tour, you will meet all the animals, and Jan will be happy to tell you all about the history of the farm and the surrounding area. You can learn all about the animals, and the way we run things here on the farm.
When Kirstine isn’t busy with baking and preparing delicious meals for guests, she can usually be found in the kitchen garden, harvesting veggies for dinner, or working in the berry garden. And we can always use some extra hands if kids want to help out with berry-picking!
We light the pizza oven weekly and if weather allows it we have a bonfire once a week.
The trampoline is just outside the dining hall, so mum and dad can chill out with a coffee and book from our guest library while keeping one eye on the games. When they get tired of bouncing, there are outdoor games, ball sports and board games. For the wee ones, there’s a sandbox under the fir trees with lots of fun toys, including some tractors so the kids can play at being farmers, too.
Rainy day? We built a cosy playroom in the old stable, perfect for days when the weather isn’t so great. Kids can build a railway track while mum and dad can relax on the comfy straw-sofas with a book.
