Essenbækgaard Bed & Breakfast
Essenbækgaard Bed & Breakfast offers several different room sizes, from small rooms with room for two people to larger rooms that can easily accommodate a family of four.
Most of the rooms have their own bath and toilet and those that do not share with one other room at most. It is possible to rent two rooms and close off an area so that you can be more private.
The nature is right outside the door, but shopping is still close
The delta of Gudenåen, also known as Randers Fjord, meanders slowly by 42 metres below the farm's position. There is direct access to several walking routes right outside the door, the trip to the fjord takes about 20 minutes on foot and goes through a protected forest and over the dammed areas which lie below sea level.
In the summer, the view over the valley can be enjoyed from the dedicated terrace belonging to the Bed & Breakfast area, from here you can also enjoy the shade under the large ash and maple trees that still remain on the western side of the farm.
Even though the farm is located in a rural area, you are nevertheless located right in the middle of Assentoft village, there are approx. 900 metres to shops and the small village with approx. 3,800 inhabitants also offers both a restaurant/pizzeria, several local supermarkets and a very good butcher.
