Welcome to Tjolöholm - a Swedish castle in Tudor style

Tjolöholm Castle is Sweden’s leading Arts and Crafts property. Built between 1898 and 1904 by James Fredrik and Blanche Dickson, the castle is a bastion of faithfulness to traditional methods of manufacturing. Predominantly in Tudor style, the castle also boasts rare examples of Liberty & Co who were at the forefront of the Arts and Crafts Movement at the time. Modernities from the turn of the century such as electricity, central heating and a circularly flowing shower were combined to make this castle truly unique. Follow a guided tour and embark on a journey through historic grandeur.

What's on

Throughout the year you will always find something for you at Tjolöholm castle. The castle is open for tours daily during the summer and weekends the rest of the year. Whatever you do, make sure to enjoy the Tjolöholm peninsula which is renowned for its diverse wildlife and breathtaking views of the ocean.


Let us make you feel at home in style so you can take advantage of the Tjolöholm Estate. Live in the charming village cottages by the green and watch the sun set over the fjord, or book the luxurious gatehouse and immerse yourself in a tranquil oasis that offers lovely respite from everyday life.


Throughout the year you will always find great food in our restaurants, picnic baskets, hotel rooms or cafe. We pride ourselves on our locally sourced and homegrown ingredients. Our chefs in both the homely Storstugan and the stately kitchens of the castle are passionate about quality and seasonality. During autumn and winter, Storstugan makes a cosy destination after a long walk on the grounds; the open fire is great for warming yourself back up.

The Castle and Garden

The castle gardens are beautifully situated with expansive south facing views of the sea. Formal and structured by the castle the garden gradually adjusts to the countryside as it extends, giving the impression that the castle has grown out of its surroundings.
