Faarevadskrog BB - on track of life
Anne and Peter have lived in this lovely place between
Skælskør and Næstved for 7 years - since 2012. It
was the fate that intervened - on this spot the couple
had to live. It was written in the great universal book.
We found the house for sale on the internet, says Peter.
The place appealed to us a lot, but we thought it was
too big - and there was too much for us to care for with 7
acres of land and garden.
One of my colleagues knew that we were looking for a
place, where we could have land for animals and horses.
And she told us her mother had a place just like that
for sale. It was this farm. We agreed that now we had to
come and see the place - there were higher powers trying
to tell us something. So we made an appointment
for a viewing and fell at for the place right away. It was
our dream home.
In 2011, it was even very dicult to be allowed to borrow
money for house purchases. The nancial crisis
raged - it’s the outskirts of Denmark this place - and
even so there was great interest in buying the property,
and it ended in a bidding round. Although we had not
yet received a mortgage loan, we simply had to bid on
the farm anyway.
We won the bidding round but still did not have the
funding in place. We were honest about that in our conversation
with our colleague’s mother. She liked us and
she wanted us to buy the place. So she was patient and
gave us the chance to raise the purchase price.
It so happened that I was at a meeting with my lawyer
in another connection. He worked in the same house
as the bank Spar Lolland. The lawyer and I came to talk
about the strange situation Anne and I were in, and he
said he would look closely at the cases for us. In a short
time we were approved by the bank and were able to
buy the farm. It was a great day.
Anne could now fulll her dream of having a Bed and
Breakfast and we could move into this wonderful place.
Anne and Peter met at a hostel on Funen 35 years ago.
Anne came from southern Germany - but moved to
Denmark for Peter and the love. Peter is from Zealand
and lived in Rødovre at that time and was trained as
a yoga teacher. So the couple settled in Copenhagen.
Peter got interested in music therapy and was admitted
to the University of Aalborg. The family moved to North
The education as a music therapist was completed and
both Anne and Peter got a job up there in the north, and
bought a house far out in the countryside in a small village,
with their 2 sons. Later, the family bought a farm
at Jammerbugten - and that is where they learned to
love to live in the countryside. But at one point, the
marriage came through a dicult time - Anne and
Peter lived separately for a 5-year period before they
reunited. They never managed to get divorced. Their
friendship and love carried them through.
We sit in Cafe Wisteria, a terrace covered with - yes -
wisteria - in glorious sunshine, drinking coee while we
talk. There is a wonderful tranquility over the place - far
out in the countryside where a small country road ends
in a wheel track - a small dirt road is leading to the farm.
Today Peter is working in therapy and meditation -
especially with young people who have gotten a little
lopsided with life. In addition to working full time as
therapists, they run their Bed and Breakfast together,
conduct therapy courses and oer on-site individual
therapy. Both Anne and Peter are riders and there is
plenty of room for their lovely horses on the farm.
Anne and I take a walk around the huge old garden
with fruit trees and lots of climbing roses - there are
owers everywhere. It is not a truncated and trimmed
English rose garden we go through. It is a natural garden
with pristine nooks and a relaxed atmosphere
that meets us. It is, on the whole, a place where there
is room for thought. There is a tranquility rarely found
anywhere in our hectic world.
Anne and Peter have decorated a wing on the farm for
Bed and Breakfast. And everyone who visits them says
the same as I do. What a great place to have. We would
like to come again ...
Living room, small kitchen, bedroom and
bath on a hobby farm, situated completely
undisturbed in nature, close to the hiking
and cycling path Fodsporet.
The place is suitable for families with children
as well as recreational opportunities,
refuges or for therapy and courses.
