Our Farm-stay

We invite you to stay with us on our farm situated in a charming little corner of the Polish forest. Zagroda Balbiny is a perfect getaway. Here you can recharge your batteries, cleanse your soul and forget about the stress, hustle and bustle of daily life.

We currently have two horses, a pony, chickens and my cats. We plan to have more horses in the near future and host horse riding summer camps for children, riding lessons for all ages and hacks in the forest.

Our farm is ideal for: Families with Children, Loners, Honorable Elders, mushroom pickers, fishermen, hikers, active sportsmen, lovers of Nordic walking. Families with pets. With great pleasure we host well behaved four-legged family members, where paradise is waiting here for walks and runs.

Dear guests, please take into account that the farm is located in the forest: mice, field worms, flies and mosquitoes, etc. this is their nature, we could but do not want to change it. We are the guest in their world.

THE CHALETS (please click for photos and prices)
On our farm we have five individually styled chalets in keeping with the climate that are equipped not only with the necessary utensils for a comfortable vacation, but above all characterised by unique fairy-tale interiors. Each of our cottages has a fireplace. On cooler evenings, particularly in winter, you can warm up by the warmth of the fireplace. Three of our chalets on the farm are placed in such a way that the children can play worry free in plain view. You also have the possibility of accommodation in cabins that are on the sidelines to rest in silence, marvelling at the beauty of nature.
We have 2 x four person chalets, 2 x five person chalets and an eight person chalet. Each chalet has a day bed or 1 extra space in the living area. We charge for the price of full occupancy per house (not the extra space), any partial occupation will be charged as per negotiation.
