Holiday home of the week: a wooden coastal retreat in Denmark’s Jutland

Surrounded by water and nature

This angular wooden home beds down into its natural setting in Denmark’s Jutland.

Designed by Puras Architects’ Søren Sarup – also responsible for the nearby Light House villa – The Woodhouse sits on a wooded plot, between the North Sea and a lake near the fishing village of Agger.

Its simple design comprises three core elements: the main timber-wrapped house has a pyramid-like gabled roof, and is connected to a rectangular annex via a sweeping timber deck.

Living spaces are tucked into the freshly completed main house, where white walls and pale wooden floors hone a minimalist vibe. But interiors are far from sterile: a wood-burning stove and exposed beams add some hygge to the home, which feels cosy despite its soaring ceiling heights.

Floor-to-ceiling glass maintains views through the house, and the kitchen opens onto a covered terrace. The master bedroom is inside the main house, and has a private roof terrace with views across the landscape

Two more bedrooms can be found in the annex of the Danish holiday home, which is available to rent via Urlaubsarchitektur from €890 per week.

Windows across The Woodhouse frame views of the surrounding trees and North Sea in the distance. The area is a popular spot for kite and windsurfing, and kayaking, and The Thy National Park – known for its rich wildlife and walking trails – is on the doorstep.
