My name is Anna and I am originally from Poland. I moved to England over 35 years ago where I now live with my husband John, my two daughters, and our cat Jerry.

Anna Bannon purchased this house in 2003

It was always my dream to have a base in Poland where all the family could gather and spend time together. I am now so thrilled to have the House of Storks and Amber Farm (HomeAway.co.uk #57818) as tranquil havens in the beautiful Polish countryside for the enjoyment of family, friends and our guests.

My brother and sister-in-law, Chris and Mirka, look after the house. They live next door to the House of Storks and are pleased to offer a warm welcome to our guests. They will show guests round the House, explain how everything works, and give guests the benefit of their local knowledge.

One of Poland's attributes is its beautiful countryside and forests, and I always wanted my home to be part of the landscape. The House of Storks is built from local wood and thatched with reed farmed from Polish lakes. It is very comfortable - cool in summer (which can get very warm) and the thick walls and the log fire keep us warm in winter.

The House of Storks is ideally placed to visit the tri-city (Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot), the lakes of Pomerania, and local beaches.

The wood burning hot tub in the garden is always a big hit with our guests on a summer or winter's evening.

The House of Storks

I have just returned home to rainy, cloudy Manchester after a lovely week at The House of Storks. What a beautiful house! Spacious, exquisitely clean, well-cared for, well-equipped and in a beautiful location - Bojano, very close to Gdansk. It was a delight to laze in the huge garden or eat breakfast at the table outside watching and listening to the birds; we even heard a cuckoo. Deer crossed the path near the house and storks nested nearby. Some mornings we would see the baby stork poking its head out of its nest. Bojano is good for interesting walks and cycle rides - the area is very flat. The meals we ate, mainly in Gydinia, were excellent. Gdansk is an intersting city - the shipyards and the quaint streets. It was also incredibly easy to park! My favourite place was Sopot - glamour from yesteryear! One occasion we heard piano playing from one of the villas, some displaying a faded glamour, and it felt as though we had stepped back into the early 19th century. Slowinsky National Park, although quite a drive, is an unusual phenomenon, but what a chill wind. I regret not visitng the Hel peninsular. But the roads and the drivers were a little scary! Mirka and Krys who look after the house were very friendly, helpful and amenable. They are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful location. Poland and The House of Storks surpassed my expectations and I would love to return. It was one of the best holidays I have had. I will be recommending Poland and the House of Storks to all my friends and family.

Beautiful Poland og beautiful House of Storks

We had a lovely holiday in Poland. It is a beautiful and hospitable country.

The house was absolutely perfect for 4 adults. It is simply and tastefully furnished, and the garden is very big. Located in an area where it is undisturbed and can go some lovely walks.
The hosts are very helpful and friendly, and very discreet.

All in all a lovely experience ...

Wooden Storks

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 19, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
We have just returned from a week at The House of Storks which actually has wooden storks on the balcony which my 5 yr old thought were amazing.

To begin with the photographs do not do the house justice, it looks a bit spartan and under-furnished when in fact it is extremely well laid out; attractively furnished and welcoming. We frequently rent properties and this one is far and away the most pristine and beautifully presented. Everything you need is there, a far-superior dishwasher than we have at home and efficient washing machine which is a must when travelling with children.

It has a good sized garden for playing games and secure off-street parking.

One thing to bear in mind is that the house is in the middle of nowhere, literally. This suited us as we were out all day, a hire car is a must, and were tired and ready to come back by about 1600. However, there are no restaurants near-by and the driving is quite interesting so it's out for lunch and then eating in, in the evenings.

Road signs are infrequent so take a good map and navigator, fortunately my husband is brilliant at getting us from A-B but without him, I would have found it very difficult.

We spent a couple of days in Gdansk and on the beach at Sopot, plus a visit to Malborg Castle. It's a fascinating area with lots to do.

Highly recommended.
