About us


Edens Garden is located on Hällsjö farm just 30 km north of Västerås, central in the region of Västmanland, and is a good starting point for excursions around this region. Our name is John and Mandy de Jong and we live with our two children at 'Hällsjö Gård' and run Edens Garden. We originally come from the Netherlands and moved to Sweden in 2002. In our opinion, Swedish nature is incredibly valuable, and we enjoy being in the middle of silence, nature and with wildlife just right next door. We started Edens Garden to create awareness for nature and we strive to offer Swedish nature to others who may not come into contact with nature in their daily lives.

Edens Garden B&B is located in the middle of the beautiful Black River Valley and with us you can find peace, quietness and forget about the stressful everyday life. Our goal is that you as a guest experience the area with the four senses; see, feel, smell and hear. This in combination with natures elements (air, water, fire and earth) creates the ingredients for new inspirations.

In addition to calm and conviviality, we want to create awareness of nature and the environment. We always try to find new ways of working in an environmentally friendly way and encourage our guests to do the same. Among other things, we sort garbage, buy environmentally certified electricity, recycle materials (such as wood and other things for renovations). Edens Garden is a family business, small scale and with very personal service. We develop the company at our own pace and focus on collaboration with local entrepreneurs and environmental impact.

The surroundings and the central location make Edens Garden a good starting point for excursions by bicycle, canoe, horse or foot. We offer genuine accommodation, canoe rental, bicycle, wooden rowing boat, fishing equipment and hot tub, but also beaver safaris and relaxing treatments for body and soul. A warm welcome to us at Edens Garden!
