Windstad Manor Homestead Options

Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page offers a guide on the unique homestead options for Windstad Manor, which is the Homestead built in Hjaalmarch.

All the Homesteads are exactly the same except for their unique exterior features and their unique carriage drivers and bards. In addition, should you become thane of the hold, the respective housecarl will move into your homestead.

Windstad Manor is set in the swampy marshes near Solitude and Morthal.

Windstad Manor’s Unique Exterior Feature - Fish Hatchery

The unique exterior feature of Windstad Manor is a Fish Hatchery, which can be used to mature fish. The hatchery will be initially empty, but the following fish can be added:

  • Abacean Longfin
  • Clam
  • Cyrodilic Spadetail
  • Histcarp
  • River Betty
  • Salmon

The Hatchery is built for 3 Quarried Stone, 3 Sawn Logs and 4 Nails and is found in the waters behind your house.

The Fish Hatchery is a great place to breed your own fish.

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are well suited for the bitter cold and mountainous terrain which defines the land. Now scarred by civil war, Skyrim faces its darkest days with the return of the legendary dragons and their leader, the World-Eater Alduin. The future of Skyrim and even the lands beyond hangs in the balance, as the people await the prophesized Dragonborn, a hero born with the power of The Voice and the only one who can contend with the dragons. You are that Dragonborn; your task is to investigate why the dragons are returning, and discover a way to defeat them. At the same time, you’re free to explore Skyrim at your own pace, uncovering its many wonders along the way.
