Here are answers to the most common questions we get. For other wonderings, please write an email to booking@knystaforsen.se or give us a call: +46 76 021 35 40 (NB: We do not take bookings by phone).


Where can we stay?

Villa Knystaforsen

We offer accommodation for our guests in Villa Knystaforsen right across the river from us. The rooms are often fully booked on the restaurant’s opening nights, so if you don’t see any availability in the booking system, it is probably therefore. We recommend that you book a table, and accommodation elsewhere (see some options here below). Or you can sign up for the waiting list on the days you would like to visit us, or for our last minute waiting list if you’re open for options.

B & B

Lahult has two double rooms with private bathrooms + a house with room for up to 7 people. The B & B is located in beautiful surroundings a 10-15 minute walk from us, or 5 minutes by car. The hosts will give you a ride back and / or forth if you wish.

Holiday appartment

Within 5 minute’s walking distance from us you can hire a holiday apartment for up to 9 people from Bofast, including a discount to visit Rydö Golfklubb.

There is a hotel in the neighbour village, Torups Gästgivaregård. Bus no. 401 runs from Torup to us and back, or you can order a taxi.

Mobile home / husbil parking

There is a campsite for mobile homes just around the corner from 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 here. We do not offer camping on our property.

When can I book for 2023?

We’re currently open for bookings until February 2023. If you’d like to book on a future date that is not yet available in the booking system, please sign up for our newsletter where we inform about future booking options.

What is your dress code?

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 17.30-18. We only have one seating, which lasts approximately 4 hours.

Can I buy a gift certificate?

Currently we do not sell gift certificates.

Will you do Cooking on Fire Workshops again?

Right now we do not have any Cooking on Fire workshops planned.

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. Due to the small size of our kitchen we are not able to accommodate vegan 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.

Can I bring a dog?

No dogs or other pets, sorry, at Knystaforsen or in Villa Knystaforsen.

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.

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.

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 goes for confirmation and cancellation?

When booking you will be asked to pay a booking deposit of 1000 SEK per person. Once the payment is received the booking is confirmed. If payment is not received within 24 hours after booking, the booking will be automatically cancelled. The booking deposit will be deducted from the bill on the day. The deposit will not be returned if you cancel your reservation, regardless of the cause. It 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, regardless of the cause. Of course you are always welcome to pass on the reservation to a friend if for some reason you cannot make it. In that case, please write an e-mail to booking@knystaforsen.se

Can you recommend walking routes or other activities around you?

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

Where can we charge an electric car?

The nearest charging station is by Coop in Hyltebruk. We don’t have one here, unfortunately.
