Here are answers to the most common questions we get. For other wonderings, please write an email to booking@knystaforsen.se

Where can we stay?

When you book AN EVENING AT KNYSTAFORSEN + AN OVERNIGHT STAY, then we will assign you the best room we have available, either within walking distance, or you get a complimentary ride back and forth. Our 3 double rooms in Villa Knystaforsen are very popular, and are often fully booked. If you have special wishes regarding where you would like to stay, please let us know before booking, or by replying to the confirmation email you receive after making the booking, and we will do our very best to accommodate your wish. You can see our room types here.

Can I stay overnight in a mobile home?

Yes, absolutely! We have a few parking spaces reserved for guests who are spending the night in their own mobile homes (200 SEK). Just book a table without a room, and follow the instructions in the confirmation email. You may also reserve a table for breakfast the day after your dinner.

Our parking spaces don’t offer any amenities such as electricity etc., however, there is a campsite for mobile homes very close to us, at Rydö Golfklub


Nature is all around us, with plenty of space to pitch a tent. Here in Sweden you are free to do so anywhere in nature, as long as you do not disturb or destroy anyone or anything. Read more about “Allemansrätten” here. We do not offer camping on our property.

What does a dinner at Knystaforsen cost?

See more about the experience and our current prices here.

Can I buy a gift certificate?

Yes – you can buy a gift certificate that you can print out yourself. You can see more here, or write us an email with info about which amount you would like on the gift certificate to: booking@knystaforsen.se

I have a gift certificate, how do I book?

You can use your gift certificate as physical payment here at Knystaforsen. When you reserve a table, our usual 1 000 SEK/person deposit is requested in order to confirm the reservation. The deposit will be returned after the visit if the total amount (deposit + gift certificate amount) exceeds the amount of the bill.

Can we charge an electric car?

You can charge your car by our neighbours CBM retail (between Knystaforsen and Knystaria). Use the app Spirii go. Please note that a payment is required for charging. The charging stations are not available Monday-Friday 7-16. Please note that we cannot guarantee the functionality of the charging stations on the day of your visit. Another option is to charge the car in Hyltebruk, next to Coop (free of charge).

When can I book for later dates?

If you’d like to book for a date that is not yet available in the booking system, please sign up for our newsletter where we inform about future booking options.

Do you cater to special diets?

We can always make pescetarian and vegetarian alternatives and can cater to many common food allergies if we get a notice well in advance. Pregnancy is no problem.

We are unfortunately not able to accommodate vegan, gluten free or milk free menus.

Can I bring a child?

Children 11 years of age or older are welcome, however we do not offer special children’s menus or -prices. No babies, unfortunately, but we can help you find a local babysitter. Children of all ages are welcome if you book our Chef’s table (available to book for min. 7 adults).

Can I bring a dog?

Yes, we do have some rooms where well-behaved dogs are welcome. Please let us know if you plan to bring a dog. No dogs in or outside the restaurant, sorry. 

Can I bring my own wine?

No, according to Swedish law we are not allowed to let guests bring their own wine or other alcoholic beverages. This also applies when you book one of our rooms.

What is your dress code?

You willl be eating your dinner indoors. We wear what makes us feel comfortable, and we expect nothing else from you. Please be advised that Knystaforsen is situated in the middle of nature, why we recommend casual footwear. We cook over an open fire, and from time to time we invite our guests to join us outdoors. This can leave a smoky remark on your clothing, just the way we like it. With that in mind, you do not need any special clothes.

What are the seating times?

When booking or checking into Villa Knystaforsen you will be appointed a time between 18:00-20:00. You are very welcome to let us know after booking, if you prefer to eat early or late. We only have one seating, which lasts approximately 4 hours.

Will you do Cooking on Fire Workshops again?

We currently do not have any Cooking on fire workshops planned, sorry.

How to get here by public transport?

You can travel to Rydöbruk by bus from Torup, Halmstad or Hyltebruk. Trains run to Torup nearby from Halmstad, Falkenberg and Jönköping with direct connections to Malmö, Copenhagen and Gothenburg. If you are spending the night at our hotel in Torup, then we will pick you up and drive you back after the dinner. We can also pick you up if you wish to join us for breakfast.

How to order a taxi?

To / from Halmstad there are several options for booking a taxi, e.g. Tre Hjärtan. The nearest local taxi service is Sennans Taxi. It is a good idea to book the taxi in advance.

Which are the nearest airports?

The nearest international airports are Gothenburg, Malmö and Copenhagen, all within 1,5-2 hours from us. There is also an airport in Halmstad 45 minutes away, with connections to Stockholm among other places.

Can we walk/cycle?

We are close to the walking route Hallandsleden and the cycling route Hylteslingan.

What are the terms for confirmation and cancellation?

When booking you will pay a booking deposit of 1 000 SEK per person. Once the payment is received the booking is confirmed. If payment is not received within 72 hours after booking, the booking will be automatically cancelled. The booking deposit will be deducted from the bill on the night of your visit. The deposit will not be returned if you cancel your reservation. This is unfortunately regardless of the cause. The reservation may be changed to another date up until 14 days before (see below). You are of course always welcome to pass on your booking to someone else. If so, please write us an email to booking@knystaforsen.se

Can I change my reservation to another date?

You may change the reservation to another date up until 14 days before and keep the deposit. Less than 14 days before, a new deposit must be paid in order to change the booking to another date. This is unfortunately regardless of the cause. Of course you are always welcome to pass on the reservation to a friend if for one reason or the other you cannot make it. In that case, please write an e-mail to booking@knystaforsen.se

Why won’t I get my deposit back if I cancel or want to change the booking less than 14 days before?

Booking a table with us is similar to buying a ticket to a concert, theater, or a holiday. Every time a table is booked in our restaurant, it locks the possibility that another guest can book. Most of our guests don’t live around the corner, and a visit with us is something that is often planned well ahead. Even if we have guests on the waiting list, we have no guarantee of filling an empty table with a short notice. This also applies when rebooking.

Can you recommend walking routes or other activities around you?

There are lots of things to do in our beautiful surroundings. Please check Hylte Kommuns tourist site for info and advice.
