This old Belarusian farmstead is located 75 km away from Minsk in Slutsk direction. Surrounded by two hectares of land, the farmstead features two old five-bedroom wooden houses, each of them with a kitchen and a bathroom. The houses offer all things necessary for the comfort of guests: wireless Internet access, an electric kettle, a microwave oven, a TV, a refrigerator and a traditional Belarusian chimney stove that guests can use for cooking.
Relax in two wood-fired steam baths with besoms (bundles of leafy rods) and towels or indulge yourself into a range of spa treatments including hay steam, various types of wraps, or therapeutic, relaxing and cosmetic massage therapies. A hayloft upstairs the bathhouse offers a chance to spend a night enjoying a fragrant smell of meadow grasses. A sleep in the hay has a beneficial effect on the nervous system and general health.
The farmstead features a lake where guests can take a swim or fish for carp, pike, catfish, roach, and crayfish (fishing rods provided).
Volleyball and football grounds, badminton, darts, bows, and bicycles are available for guests. There is a large hill that offers sledging, snow tubing, skiing, and snowboarding in winter.
We take special pride in our Eco-Farm with sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, turkeys, and pigs where guests can watch and feed the animals.
The farmstead features its own ethnography museum that provides an insight into the ancient Belarusian way of life. It is a great place to watch and get a hands-on experience of grinding flour or weaving a traditional towel.
Horseback rides as well as old Belorussian carriage or a horse-drawn sleigh rides are available.
The farmstead holds celebrations of old-time Belarusian rituals, such as Kupala Night (Midsummer), Maslenitsa (Pancake Week), Gukanne Viasny (Calling for Spring), Bagach (Harvest Fest), and Kalyady (Christmas and Epiphany celebrations).
Guests can indulge in “ecologically pure” high-quality food made from the farm’s own organic produce. Food is cooked in the Belarusian chimney stove using old-timer recipes. All guests are welcomed with bread and salt and a glass-shot of moonshine.
We also organize hunting. Next to the farmstead, there is a large forest where you can pick berries and mushrooms.
Vyaselaya Hata Farmstead organizes excursions to Dudutki Museum Complex, Nesvizh and Mir Castles, and Slutsk Belt Museum.
Visit us to relax your soul and body, steam in the steam bath, savor the farm’s bespoke cuisine, take part in an old Belarusian ritual, spend a night in the hayloft, or sleep on a stove-couch of the old Belarusian chimney stove. Our farmstead is a unique place to feel the old-time rural life atmosphere and experience warm hospitality of Belarusian people!
