Windstad Manor is a homestead which can be built on land purchased in Hjaalmarch in The Elder Scrolls V: Hearthfire.


Windstad Manor sits on the lightly forested banks at the delta of the Karth and Hjaal Rivers, in northern Hjaalmarch.

To the west is the imposing sight of the arch of Skyrim's capital, Solitude. To the north are the icy waters of the Sea of Ghosts, and to the northeast, just a stone's-throw away, is the ancient Nordic tomb of High Gate Ruins. Morthal, the Hold capital, lies a fair distance to the southwest. If Lights Out! has been started, the shipwreck of the Icerunner will appear just a few yards away to the northeast.


  • It is unique from the other two building sites in that the fish hatchery is available.
  • There is an iron ore vein south of the carpenter's workbench and the front door of the Manor.
  • There is a clay deposit immediately southeast of the Manor's front steps and northeast of the Log Pile.
  • There is a stone quarry with three pieces of quarried stone and a clay deposit north northwest of the manor, in the rock face next to the water's edge, near the fish hatchery.
  • A small pod of horkers can be found near the fish hatchery.


Upon completion of the quest Laid to Rest, this site can be bought from the steward of Hjaalmarch at Highmoon Hall in Morthal for 5,000 GoldIcon. Depending on the progress of the Civil War, this steward will be either Aslfur or Pactur. The dialog option will say, "I'd like to purchase a house." However, when that option is chosen, the steward will say that there are no houses available, but there is some land.


The characters unique to Windstad Manor are:



  • Adopted children seem to dislike this home as they will sometimes say "This place is scary. There are monsters in the swamp, I just know it".
  • Trolls may spawn northeast of the house in the swamp.
  • Two dead draugr may spawn by the stables.
