The Manor House on the island of Svinøya has weathered every season of the year since 1828. This soon to be 200-year-old main building is now available for overnight accommodation and social functions as the very ‘jewel in the crown’ at Svinøya Rorbuer.
The Manor House has altogether 17 sleeping accommodations, in addition to two rooms in the Storehouse (Stabburet). The Storehouse played a central role in the lives of the many generations at Svinøya. The storehouse bell was used to ring in mealtimes at the Manor House, and then work would pause for a while. The inhabitants of the buildings around the Manor House paid heed to the ringing of the bell, serving meals to the hosts and functionaries.
