“To-høj-gaard” means “Two-Mounds-Farm,” and is named for two Bronze Age mounds – passage graves – lying 150m to the southwest. Though one is almost long gone, plowed away by the farmers, the remaining, 25x3m stands quite well preserved and now protected.
The view from the top is amazing – you can walk up there.
Originally there have been at least 10 burial mounds in the area. So we know that people have lived here for more than 3,500 years – they probably have enjoyed the spectacular view just as long.

Tohøjgaard was built in 1872, and was a working farm until just a few years ago. Today, the grain lofts and milking rooms have been carefully converted to guest rooms, baths, lounge and dining room.
Camilla and Kåre your innkeepers
From August 2015 we have taken over the running of Tohøjgaard from the previous owner Christine We live here with our two children, Erik 11 years old and Isa 8 years old.
When we saw Tohoejgaard we immediately was captivated by the harmony of the silence and the ever-changing ocean.
At Tohøjgaard you will find this place to recharge and relax with the kids and each other, close to beach and forest and far from the noise and stress of everyday life.
On a daily basis we work with providing various health products, play music and hold regular yogaretreats.
And then we love gardening and good food...
We look forward to welcoming you.
