About Herresta Lada


Herresta Lada is a genuine 19th century farm that is both beautiful, inspiring and relaxing to come to. It is located in a historic cultural landscape in beautiful Odensala approx 4 km north of Marsta station, 9 km from Arlanda and Sigtuna and 40 km from Stockholm and Uppsala. The farm is surrounded by arable land and forest groves with vast and scenic views. Previously, agriculture and animal husbandry were practiced here. Today it has been converted into a modern and beautiful facility for various activities such as:


About the host couple

We who live and run Herresta Lada since 2012 are called Tord and Heléne. At our housewarming party in the summer of 2013, we surprised the guests by also getting married in the barn.

When we left Stockholm, we had long had a dream to try to live more rural sometime in our lives. When we first visited Herresta Lada, we knew immediately that we had ended up right - a scenic and soothing place, in the country but close to the city. As we are both dedicated entrepreneurs, we saw early on the potential to develop various businesses at Herresta.

We moved into the house at the end of October 2012 and already the first Advent we had our first Christmas market with shop, art exhibition and organic café in the barn. And that's the way it is!

Our vision is to create an inspiring landing place for a richer life,
where we:

  • touches and inspires personal growth

  • do it with joy and from the heart

  • creates sustainable movement forward. 

We also work as senior organizational consultants in Courage to Lead, with a focus on team and leadership development, see further www.modattleda.se. If you as a customer are looking for an inspiring place, Herresta Lada is an excellent alternative to place activities in, where you are always alone with your team.

Vi brinner båda för att skapa goda relationer inte bara på företag utan också privat! Bland annat är vi utbildade ledare i PREP – en forskningsbaserad kommunikationskurs för par. Vi håller regelbundet helgkurser här på Herresta Lada.
