Frekhaug is the administrative centre of Meland municipality, located in Hordaland county, Norway. The village sits at the southern tip of the island of Holsnøy. The 1.34-square-kilometre (330-acre) urban area of Frekhaug (which also encompasses the suburb of Vikane) has a population (2013) of 2,335; giving the village a population density of 1,743 inhabitants per square kilometre (4,510/sq mi).
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).
Since 1914, the manor house has been owned by the Nordhordland home mission (Nordhordland indremisjon).
