Tjolöholm Castle

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.

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.
