Gothem Prästgården 929, 624 30
10 Minutes drive: 13th Century old Gothic church with fine internal architecture and frescoes.
The presently visible, Gothic church is probably the successor of two earlier churches, the first a stave church or at least a wooden church, which was later replaced by a Romanesque stone church. Rebuilding of the church into its present form was carried out between the early 13th and mid-14th centuries. The church may originally have been built to serve a large farmstead. Since its completion during the 14th century, the church has remained largely unaltered. Credit-Wikipedia.

With plenty of great places for "fika" (coffee with yummy cakes) and a beautiful 100 yr old botanical garden to name but a few of the attractions. We can also give you lots of tips on great 'foodie' joints for you to visit too!

Ekeby änge (Pastured Meadow Park)
This stunning änge or farmers meadow rated as one of the best kept on Gotland, just 7 minutes walk from Three Pheasants, with its stunning old oak and hazelnut trees and cosy picnic area with wood cabin, makes for a great places to relax once you've done your check in at Three Pheasants.
An änge (say Enge) was traditionally used by farmers over the centuries in Gotland as the location for growing their winter feed of straw/silage as well as leaves and nuts from hazelnut bushes. The area has to be kept somewhat open so as to be able to grow the right grass yet also allow enough trees to provide shade for grazing animals in the summer. A fine balance indeed, which makes for a stunning backdrop to take a book, detach from the digital world and relax.
