This gastronomic family-run retreat on Zealand’s Odsherred peninsula is a welcoming country house hotel with a charming staff. The 34 lodgings are divided among the main U-shaped 13th-century hilltop castle, one of the oldest buildings in Denmark, and an annex (which should be avoided). Most of the attractively furnished rooms feature private terraces with garden views, four-poster Hästens beds and baths stocked with Munkholm toiletries. Dining options include a Michelin-starred restaurant run by chef Claus Henriksen for “nature conscious,” seasonally inspired dishes, plus a cheerful bistro with modern furniture, lovely views and a simple menu. Other public areas include a beautiful chapel, a library and numerous reading lounges. Wine-tasting sessions, wild-mushroom foraging tours and flower-arranging, painting and yoga classes are available. Clay pigeon shooting can also be arranged. Tee times at the nearby Dragsholm Golf Club must be reserved in advance.
