Fieldsports has been a part of life at Stora Sundby since time immemorial, making it an integral aspect of the estate’s heritage and its business. The choice of game and forms of shooting and hunting are extensive. Pheasant and duck shoots are particular favourites, but we also offer excellent opportunities to hunt moose, wild boar, fallow and red deer, roe deer and mouflon. The shoots and hunts are suitable for parties of 6-16 guns. On occasion, events are organised where individual places are offered or smaller parties are paired up.

The accommodation

As a visitor at Stora Sundby, you are accommodated in one of the castle’s magnificent guest rooms with original interiors from the 19th century. We are also able to offer self-catering accommodation in the Steward’s House close to the castle, with space for 8-12 guests, or in Sand, the house on the shore of Lake Hjälmaren, which can accommodate 6-8 people.


The food at Stora Sundby is prepared with great care using ingredients of the highest quality that are locally sourced, with game from the estate and pike-perch and crayfish from the waters of Hjälmaren. Lunch is enjoyed by the warming fire in the rustic smithy or in the castle’s old kitchen. Dinner is served in the castle’s stately dining room or in the magnificent Hall of Knights. After dinner, guests can look forward to a relaxing evening in the Red or Green Drawing Room.
