Ny Spøttrup Gård is blessed with a beautiful and remote location by the water and is on a plateau with view over a heathland and tidal dam landscape.
Ny Spøttrup Gård is a listed stately country estate built in 1870 by Niels Breinholt and his wife, Maren Stokholm, the owners of the nearby medieval Spøttrup Slotsgods on the Salling-peninsula at the Limfjorden – one of the best places for clamp and oyster fishing in Denmark.
In the mid-19th century, the estate was breeding and exporting the live-stock cattle to Germany and Great Britain via the historical “cattle-road” “Hærvejen” to reach the harbors in Altona and Tönning (in what we today call Germany), and later they shipped live-stock cattle out of Esbjerg after the completion of the port of Esbjerg in 1868.
Ny Spøttrup Gård was listed as an estate of national importance by the The Agency for Culture and Palaces, in 2011.
Since 2007 Ny Spøttrup Gård has gone through a significant restoration, preservation, and maintenance work, but the work has not been completed, and must continue to secure the cultural heritage forever.
Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the local caretaker, who also conducts a tour of the house which has 6 unique double rooms, one single room, several cozy living rooms, two bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen.
In one of the ends of the estate you find an “authentic man cave”, where the talk can go quite merrily – especially out in the wee hours after a great meal, and maybe a cognac for the after-dinner coffee.
There are two more single rooms in the attic, but these room are not isolated according to today’s standards. Further they are accessed through a steep staircase (not suitable for elderly people and people with walking difficulties), but here you can sleep in the “milkmaid’s room” or “farm helper’s room”.
