If you've ever dreamt of shrinking down and spending a night in a dollhouse, then the Swedish fairytale village known as Grythyttan Inn will fulfill that particular childhood fantasy seamlessly.
Near Örebro, 22 cottages sit on an old silver-mining route, surrounded by forest and grasslands. Iron lampposts punctuate the charmingly mismatched period doors and windows from cottage to cottage, and lush green creeping vines snake up from gardens to eaves.
Inside your cottage, floors creak as you stride through a bright, airy space, anchored by a large plush bed. Due to the size and number of the cottages, many conferences also choose Grythyttan Inn as a place to meet up.
In the restaurant, Swedish culinary traditions are protected as they have been for hundreds of years, using mostly fresh produce and game from surrounding forestland.
After devouring a cultural feast, you may have a thirst for a few more glasses of something festive. Head down to the 7,000-bottle wine cellar, the oldest in the country.
