Where We Are

Located on a quiet road, 7km north of the popular tourist destination that is the historic coastal town of Ystad, you will find a large group of traditional farm buildings with a low rise farmhouse. This is Red Bird Farm! Painted in the traditional red protective paint, with white woodwork trims, it stands out from the landscape of wide arable fields, bordered by a small woodland of silver birch and spruce trees.

Perfectly placed to be close to the region’s extensive sandy beaches

The Farm - a peaceful stay for Your Holiday

The farm was originally built in 1850, it has been a number of years since that it was a working farm. Yet we do recognise it’s heritage, with the holiday homes named to reflect their previous uses, and in the conversion of them from their original buildings we have been sympathetic in that original features have been retained and old materials re-purposed in the new rooms.

The setting is perfect for a peaceful stay, allowing one to recharge and become fully rested. The light is beautiful, the air calm and the beds so comfortable! Check out our guest reviews!

Sandy Beaches - Lakes - Bird life - Historic Houses

Perfectly placed to be close to the region’s extensive sandy beaches and glorious coast, or for visiting many of the large natural lakes that are situated in the area; the Fyledalen area of an ancient river valley that is famously home to the greatest number of birds of prey in Northern Europe, and the numerous small villages with beautifully well preserved churches, historic grand houses & castles, and a considerable number of important nature reserves. The great outdoors is just waiting to be explored!

Small towns & villages with uniqe Boutiques, Shops, Restaurants & Cafes

In addition, there are many villages & small towns that offer a wide variety of unique boutiques, cafes and specialist food producers, combined with various artists studios, historical sites or other points of interest can make a visit truly memorable.

If food is your thing, you wont be disappointed in the region of Ystad and the Österlen! With so many independent businesses offering apple products, raps oil, chocolate, bakeries, fish, berries, ice cream, artisan cheeses & yoghurts, champagne, alage, jams & honey, herbs & spices – all local grown and packaged, sold either through their own stores where the natural ingredients are grown (and often with a cafe, sometimes being able to take a look at production) or in the major food shops in the area. We also offer a selection in our very own boutique here at Red Bird Farm, from foods for gifts or something to enjoy whilst you are staying here with us.

Family friendly Activities - Sightseeing - Castles - in Skåne

For children, and families of mixed ages, we are perfectly located for many places that offer all kinds of fun and interest! Aside from the nature that is here to explore – with quiet, easy roads to cycle and walk on – we also have our unique ‘water cycles’ to hire on the lakes (fantastic fun for teenagers), a great animal park which allows you to get close and learn about all the Nordic animals (no lions & tigers here!) all in a wonderful natural setting. Just an hour’s easy drive or bus ride. Just a ten minute drive away there is Skåne’s largest water & outdoor fun park; Glimmingehus castle that often has days full of history to experience, or head towards Malmö. Outside the city there is a complete viking village museum, or local nature reserve where in winter you can spot seals. In Malmö itself there are plenty of options for families and visitors of all ages and interests. Of course, we are also very close and easily connected to Copenhagen – well worth an inclusion in your travel plans.

We have spent many years living in the region, and are very happy to furnish you with plenty of tips and advice on finding those things that will make your holiday memorable, and perfect, just for you.
