In the upper part of the Numedal valley, towards the end of the large fjord that goes by the name Norefjorden, you will find a historical farm from the 16-1700th century with lots of history that are just waiting to be experienced.
Welcome to Sevletunet!
Sevletunet is a warm and welcoming B&B where you will easily feel at home. You can choose to stay in one of our 17th and 18th century traditional Norwegian farm buildings with modern comfort - or maybe you would like to try the old medieval bed in the barn on pillars ("stabbur") from 1632?
LOCATION | Sevletunet is nestled in the Numedal valley 5 km from the village of Rødberg. Sevletunet B&B and Cabins is halfway to/from Bergen/Oslo. The farm is approx. 2,5 hours drive and 170 km from Oslo, while Geilo is 72 km away.
THE FARM | Sevletunet is a family farm that has been in the Sevle family since 1850. Previously the owner's great grand mother and grand father had a post office and telegraph in the main building. Today the farm is run by a mother and daughter. The farm and the buildings has a lot of cultural history and peculiar details, that the owners gladly will tell you all about.
THE BUILDINGS | This is a traditional farm that offers accommodation in carefully restored 17th and 18th Century buildings. The collection of traditional farm buildings consists of guest rooms and self-catering private cottages with rustic interiors. On the outside, the buildings have the rustic charm of a “bygdetun” (a collection of timber farm buildings), while the interior offers all the comforts of a modern hotel. The combination of charm and hospitality in this historic setting will make this the highlight of your trip to Numedal. All of the rooms have private bathrooms.
ACTIVITIES | Guests can enjoy watching the ducks in the duck pond, an outdoor fireplace and a free exchange library. Activities on site include a tour of this former farm upon request, ballplay and different lawn games (e.g. crocket), relaxation in the peaceful garden, spend time in the wood fired sauna house, barbeque outside or inside the barbeque hut, swim in the nearby beautiful fjord, go canoe paddling in the pond, relax in the zen-house by the duck pond with an outdoor fireplace and sitting area, partake in yoga classes on the lawn, enjoy local foods and drinks in the caféteria. Numedalslågen river and the Norefjord are just a short walk away offering many fishing spots and scenic footpaths.
On quiet summer evenings you can relax and converse with other guests next to the outdoor fire and share the magic of a summer night in the peaceful, authentic surroundings. The large property makes it also possible to find a private nook in a hammock, to read a book from the library. During the daytime, the large lawns and surrounding fields at Sevletunet are perfect areas for children to play and explore. There are great local fishing areas in the pond, river or fjord. A canoe and boat are available for our guests on the adjacent fjord and there is also swimming possibilities. Free shampo and conditioner is on the shelf in the woods.
NUMEDAL | The Numedal valley is called the medieval valley, because of its many preserved medieval buildings and four stave churches. It is very popular for our guests to go rail biking on draisines on the preserved railway close to the property (starting in Veggli station and ending the adventure at Gvammen station). On Gvammen station, which is a short walk from Sevletunet, the owner has an intrigueing meteorite collection that we recommend you to check out. We will arrange the transportation for you, free of charge.

Nore stave church is only 9.5 km away, and Uvdal Stave Church is 13 km from Sevletunet B&B and Cabins.
