An introduction to Woodhouse

How would you describe Woodhouse in a nutshell?

The idea was to do something completely unique but in total respect to the surrounding environment. A lot of thought went into the design so that no matter where you are in the house, the natural trees and shrubs are right there.

Glass windows offer views throughout the length of the house and there’s total privacy — while you can see out, nobody can see in. I wanted to ensure that the eye travelled outside (rather than staying inside), so it has a really clean, Scandinavian interior design and that nothing disturbs you from the views.

What was the inspiration/story behind Woodhouse?

The architect who designed the house was doing a project on my garage and was always talking about Agger. I’ve always had an interest in architecture and he kept saying I needed to see this place to appreciate its uniqueness. So eventually I decided to go with him and see a block of land he’d found. When I stood there and experienced the forest and its privacy, I was in love.

The next weekend I returned to Agger and bought the land, then phoned the architect to let him know he better start drawing! We had lots of meetings to discuss our shared ideas, which centered around creating a house that stood out but also blended in with the natural setting. The house is designed like a bird spreading its wings and the architect actually listened to a piece of music with birds singing in the background for inspiration while he worked.

How would you describe the atmosphere of the house?

While the house is an enclosed building, you’re in constant contact with nature. When I’m inside, it’s impossible to feel any stress and I have a sense of freedom — freedom from work and the space to let my thoughts wander. It’s a really inspiring place and at the same time, equipped with everything you need.

Guests often comment that when they enter the house, it feels like they’re the first ones. It’s important to us that it’s incredibly clean when they arrive, so there’s nothing to do except relax and just enjoy the house.

Woodhouse rooms & rates

Woodhouse is comprised of three units — the main house, the annex and the terrace that brings it all together. At its heart is the big living space, which features an open kitchen/dining area and a fireplace, with views in all directions from the surrounding glass windows.

The main building has a master bedroom with a 4.5-metre-high ceiling and an en-suite bathroom, as well as access to a terrace that receives morning sun. You can lie in the bed here and look up at the stars while watching the tops of the trees swaying in the wind outside.

The annex features two additional bedrooms with a bathroom in the middle, with the larger of the two bedrooms having an upstairs platform where children love to play (and can sleep if they want to). We find that when families arrive with kids, they’re rushing around trying to find this hidden space!

Things to do in Northern Jytland & Agger

  • Hiking
  • Cycling
  • Sailing
  • Boat trips
  • Fishing

I would definitely recommend going for walks in the national park and just enjoy being at the beach or in the water. The entire coastline is known as the “Coast Hawaii” and renowned for its surf — there have even been world championships here. There are some really big waves and also a surf school around 25 minutes' drive away if you want to try surfing, although the water is really cold for most of the year.

You can also rent bicycles to go for a spin around the national park or head out on the water with a fishing boat. I’d also recommend exploring some of the other towns along the west coast. There are lots of organic farms in the area and great restaurants where everything is really fresh. If you want a spa experience, you can head to Hurup where there is a luxury wellness centre.

The location of Woodhouse

The house is located in Agger, an old fishing town, and just 5-10 minutes walk from the main street where there are a few shops. The street eventually gives way to sand and then you’re at the water, so everything is very close. You’re surrounded by water in Agger, not just at the beach but there’s also a big lake and a fjord.

It’s also just 15 minutes drive from the town of Hurup where there are large supermarkets and services. The Thy National Park is also just 10 metres from the house, with walking trails that can take you for miles and miles.

When is the best time to visit Northern Jytland?

Things constantly change drastically on the west coast of Denmark, so it has something to offer all year long. While it can get windy, the house is in a protected area and you don’t feel the wind’s strength.

In the summer when it’s 20-25 degrees, it’s a really nice time to just relax on the terrace and sunbathe. But I also love the autumn and winter when the weather is slightly wilder but incredibly beautiful. It’s so nice to be in the house with the fireplace on while experiencing the natural surroundings.
