A real-life fairy-tale

The majestic manor house was originally the home of industrial entrepreneur and man of the world Christian Thams – architect, minister, landowner and consul general.

Modern-day Bårdshaug comprises the manor house, a number of charming buildings dating from the 1890s and modern hotel buildings from 1980.

After a long day, you can relax in one of the lounges in the hotel lobby, or in Jaktbaren – the hunt bar – decorated with trophies, weapons and photographs from Christian Tham’s many travels in Africa.

The story of Bårdshaug Herregård is a real-life fairy-tale; the story of a family – and one man in particular – who refused to allow narrow-mindedness to prevail but used his vision and drive to realise a number of successful undertakings.
