What: The poet's cottage at Nørholm

Where: Nørholm, 4887 Grimstad, Norway

Here it is: Nørholm is situated at the road E18 between Grimstad and Lillesand. The poet's cottage lies behind the farm on a forrest path.

How does one get tranquility to write with active farming and children in the house? A poet's cottage is called for. The cottage lies idyllic in the forrest, but still with a view down on the farm. The cottage is left as in Hamsun's times with all his reference books, scientific literature and fiction, with his simple desk and with some of his personal belongings.

The farm Nørholm and the poet's cottage are private and can only be admired from the road!
