This old community house has been revived with flair by owners Haukur and Hadda – think stylish country-farmhouse chic, cosy lounge with fire and stunning photos taken by Haukur, who runs photography tours (check out www.phototours.is). Six new en-suite rooms have recently been built, to add to the existing six (some with shared bathroom). Two-night minimum in summer.
There is also a stunning two-bedroom apartment on offer (contact the property for more info).
