When entering the manor house, you are given little foot coverings to wear over your shoes, so you don't damage the floor! But wear it you must if you wish to take a walking tour of Tjolöholm Manor and see everything from the Smoking Room (with it's hot air vents for heating) to the fireplace in the Main Hall with it's fantastic painting of the Queen of Sheba. It is a beautiful, old mansion that has been well preserved.
The bathroom has a shower that I wished we had today -- it doesn't just shower water down, but from the sides and below as well! An all-round shower!
It has beautiful gardens surrounding the mansion, and the back of the manor house has views of the ocean. There is also a cafe, perfect to finish off your tour of the mansion as you head out.
Unfortunately, you cannot take photos inside the manor house.
