Since we came to Yaberg, we have created a quiet and special place, which often surprises visitors but reflects our experiences in Sweden and abroad. We often get the comment that it feels like coming into an English bed and breakfast. When it comes to service it is exactly what I aim for - personal service is the most important aspect to me. From the welcome at the door when the guest arrives - if I can't be at home to receive guests, I will close instead. Since I live in the property, I am never more than a minute away if a guest needs something. So it is something completely different from the average Swedish bed and breakfast, where you often get the key in a key cabinet and the breakfast is left in a refrigerator somewhere. Often you have to pay extra for breakfast, sheets and cleaning!
When we started our business in Yaberg, we wanted to create something unique based on our experiences and where you can eat, sleep and enjoy the forest and the lakes.
After starting out as a summer café with a British touch in the summer of 2017, we served eg. English "pork pies" - it was not the hit it had been in Wales - it was difficult to explain what a pork pie is, when virtually all food pies in Sweden are actually quiche. During the winter we started serving Afternoon Tea and in the spring we had our first interactive theater events, "Murder Mystery Afternoon Tea", with Philippe Vivien, Joanna's son, who is an event planner, actor and arranges storytelling workshops.
