Frekhaug hovedgård

Frekhaug Manor

Frekhaug Manor (Frekhaug hovedgård) is a manor house and farm located on the southeast side of Holsnøy. The main house is a notched, two-story log house of painted white panel with a hipped roof. The building has a portal in rococo. The building was probably built in the 1780s and is surrounded by granite walls. In 1780, the farm was bought by skipper Cort Abrahamsen Holtermann (1730-1813).[4]

Since 1914, the manor house has been owned by the Nordhordland home mission (Nordhordland indremisjon).[5]
