The forester’s cottage

The forester’s cottage stands in a small grove, Lunden, near Gammel Estrup, on the opposite side of the main road that runs between Randers and Grenaa. The house is fitted out as in the 1930s, when forester Niels Brøsted lived in here with his wife and their three children.

The house has two entrances. The front door, to the north, leads out into the ornamental garden, while the scullery door in the south gable leads out into the yard. The scullery houses the copper and it was here the family left their boots before entering the kitchen. A small entrance hall opens into the living room, and on the first floor there are two rooms, the main bedroom for the adults and a shared bedroom for the children.

Outside the house is the workshop, while the family’s privy stands behind the house, by the kitchen garden. The house did not have electricity or running water, but was supplied with water from its own pump.

The house is open during museum opening hours, while the workshop is open in connection with events held in the house.
