In our little oasis in the middle of the nature park Thal you will find the ideal base camp for excursions around Balsthal. Although the camp is centrally located in the village (corresponding noise!) it offers a lot of space and nature. Our colorful animal community (new without rooster!) can be observed all day - there is always something going on! Ideal also for 2 small families with 2 tents / campers / caravans
The camp is located directly at the train station/Postauto junction; outdoor pool, shopping and restaurants/Take Away within walking distance. Balsthal is the gateway to the Jura; leisure activities such as the climbing park in Langenbruck, summer toboggan run, hiking in the Thal Nature Park, two mini-golf courses, indoor swimming pool and bowling are in the immediate vicinity. In our "Buureschränkli" you can find different and changing products in BIO quality for sale: Beer, dried meat, honey from the region; Confiture, apple cider and eggs directly from the farm. For the cold days are also available finn candles from the region. Various catering options: an Italian restaurant right next door (recommendation: pizza or fritto misto), kiosk with fresh croissants and coffee in the morning, gas station store at the entrance to the village, various stores and restaurants in the village center.
Great family hospitality in a homey garden. Gladly again:-)

We spent the final night in Balsthal at Sandra & Thomas. Everything was clean and neat. The kids have watched a lot of the animals and the many buses. We were also allowed to use the solar shower, which we enjoyed very much. That the rooster had quasi two wake-up times at 4 o'clock and at 5 o'clock, we did not know :-)

We were (unfortunately) only one night there. The reception was friendly and unexcited and we felt very welcome! There is plenty of space available. The animals are great to watch and the kids got to feed the chickens in the morning. Our kids also loved the dart board. The food in the restaurant vis à vis was great. We can only recommend the place.

So it was mega, Sandra, Thomas, Tabasco and the other animals here you are the hammer. We enjoyed it enormously. The reception, the briefings and the tour of your (lovingly equipped) farm were just pleasant and sweet. You both run this farm with love and heart. A gem that is centrally located, next to the station but through which there is always something to see. Thank you very much that we were allowed to be your guests. My wife will never forget that she was allowed to herd and feed your animals. Andy, Gisi and Marla

Thomas and Sandra have created with the Camp Soay a real little paradise in the middle of the village Balsthal. Everything is top clean and the many little things and details show that the two put a lot of heart and soul into their camp. We felt very comfortable there and enjoyed our stay very much.

Liene Sandra,Dear Thomas We are super happy to come home it was mega with you! We can only recommend your beautiful place. It has everything it needs. Fire bowl, electricity, water, a mega "herzigs" toilet and animals which are just great to watch. The location we felt very central from which many hikes or walks can be made. A small Hoflädeli is also available with small specialties from the farm and the surrounding area. For all dog owners: You are very welcome!

The very central and yet rural place in the middle of Balsthal is very sympathetically managed and simply but lovingly furnished. The small toilet is kept very clean, It also has a small store with fine regional specialties.

We enjoyed our time with Sandra and Thomas very much! Despite the central location, you feel like in a small oasis. The place is prepared with great attention to detail and has fulfilled all our wishes. The animals have totally thrilled our daughter! And the surrounding area invites to beautiful walks. Thank you very much!

The days with you in the garden paradise were very relaxing. My dog and I immediately felt very comfortable and you gave us the nice feeling of being welcome. Thank you very much! Despite the rain, we explored the countryside, experienced a lot of space and tranquility and left everyday life behind us.

In the center of Balsthal, with plenty of space. The infrastructure is simple but built with great attention to detail: beautifully decorated toilet, solar shower, extensive waste separation and above all: a very well-stocked mini-Hoflädeli with regional specialties and firewood. The reception by Claudia and Thomas is discreet but warm.

It was very relaxed and beautiful with you. For me it was nice to see Vanessa so in our world! Thanks also for the reverse service from Thomas! A shower would be the icing on the cake, then I could make another great bike tour in your beautiful area! Love greetings Debora

Thank you very much, we enjoyed our stay with you and your animals. Highly recommended, clean toilet directly accessible from the outside, plenty of space, friendly hosts, good pizzeria and kiosk right next door. Despite 14.5m total length of our team relatively good access. We will surely come again! See you hopefully soon.
