We have recently added a separate summer apartment for our guests that includes its own kitchen and which is located in a separate wooden lakeside building.
The price for the room includes the rental of sports equipment such as bicycles, sleighs, skis, Nordic walking poles, and scooters. There is also a children’s play area, football pitch and foosball within the grounds. We will be happy to offer suggestions concerning available attractions both on-site and in the region.
All our guests (those young and old) love our mini-zoo which is home to three Mandarin ducks, miniature rabbits, a now renowned friendly dog and cat, a family of Shetland ponies and dwarf hens. We offer carriage rides in the area which children simply adore, while our adult guests all appreciate the facility of transporting angling boats to nearby lakes as well as our well-stocked fishing pond situated on the estate itself. The Owner will be pleased to assist in the purchasing of angling permits for the lakes and rivers in the area.
If you would like to sail some bigger lakes, there is a local ship captain who owns the “Martyna” boat mooring on the Szeląg Mały Lake.
