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 farmhouse 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 Amber Farm and the House of Storks (HomeAway.co.uk #15997) as tranquil havens in the beautiful Polish countryside for the enjoyment of my family, friends and our guests.

Built on the site of an old manor house (dwor in Polish) the farmhouse was in poor condition when I bought it and we completely renovated it and converted it into four comfortable and spacious apartments. My niece Karolina and her family live in one of the apartments and the other three are available for friends and guests. Karolina is pleased to offer a warm welcome - she will show guests round the farm, explain how everything works, and give guests the benefit of her local knowledge.

Amber Farm is rural and very peaceful - and a great place to relax.

Quiet beaches are easily reached by car - or you can visit the seaside town of Leba which offers a variety of restaurants.

There is a good Polish restaurant about 2km away which is very popular with our guests. Shopping is easy at a supermarket in the nearby town of Wicko.

A pleasant stay at Amber farm

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Amber farm. The description of the farmhouse rental on HomeAway website was very accurate - the place was as beautiful as it looks like in the photos. A very peaceful and pretty farm surrounded by fields.The main property was clean and well maintained. The stable could use some cleaning though. Karolina and her husband were very helpful and kind. And our kids loved the two dogs.

We were lucky to have a gorgeous weather during our stay. The beaches at Leba and in other parts of the Slowinski national park were beautiful. If you dislike the crowds, walk a bit further and you have almost the whole beach to yourself.
There were surprisingly few tourists from other countries so most of the information available is in Polish only. But we could still manage using English, some German or even body language. We were surprised by how clean it was everywhere. And eating out is fairly inexpensive.

The only information that should be updated on the website is the number of horses available. We were a bit disappointed to find only 2 horses (plus a pony you couldn't ride on) instead the 14 that were mentioned on the website. So, if riding is your interest then you might want to reconsider your choice or make sure they have more more horses to choose from.

We will definitely recommend Amber farm, Leba and Poland to our friends and relatives here in Scandinavia. The Baltic coast is a very good alternative to the Mediterranean countries.

Owner's Response: Thank you Tuija for your review, we are grateful for your comments.

I am sorry that you were disappointed by the number of horses available during your stay. The number of horses staying at the stables vary from month to month, we currently have five horses, and two more horses are arriving shortly.

The reason why we have reduced the numbers was that Karolina was expecting a baby (which has now been born) and she could not cope with cleaning the stables and regularly riding the horses.

We will ensure the website is updated to reflect the number of horses currently available.

We hope you come back to the Amber Farm soon.

Amber Farm: a great Baltic retreat

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed a week at Amber Farm with our 10 1/2 year old Bearded Collie Ruth. An urban dog, she was in heaven with the Polish pastoral scene which included the farm's horses, cats, dogs, chickens, and geese, and, of course, many rolls in the hay. Wojtek and Karolina and their two small children welcomed us to the farm -- they live in one of the four flats which make up the large residence quarters. Our flat was well-laid out, provisioned, and very comfortable and quiet. Our time at Amber Farm was a perfect rest following some challenging weeks at work in Berlin.

In addition to enjoying the farm itself, we used the flat as a base to explore the surrounding area which has much to offer. Gdansk is just over an hour away, and the visit to Slowinski National Park was a beautiful morning well spent. The local restaurants serve authentic Polish fare at reasonable prices.

We would recommend Amber Farm to families and couples seeking a real get away which also offers many interesting side trips.

Ein "Super" Urlaub

Ein "Super" Urlaub
  • 5 of 5
Es war ein ganz toller Urlaub. Nach 2010 verbrachten wir erneut 3 Wochen in
diesem wunderschönen Land und können nur allen diese Unterkunft
empfehlen. Es ist gemütlich, die Kinder haben Spaß und alles ist hier so
herrlich unkompliziert. Karolina und Woijtek sind die perfekten Gastgeber und
immer hilfsbereit.
Wer die Ruhe und Natur liebt, abseits vom Alltagsstress, kommt hier voll und
ganz auf seine Kosten. Auch die nähere oder weitere Umgebung ist ein Traum.
So viel Natur, Ruhe und Entspannung waren wir selbst in Bayern nicht gewöhnt.
Auch 2012 fahren wir wieder für 4 Wochen an einen der herrlichsten Plätze
Europas.

A wonderful, get-away-from-it-all holiday

  • 5 of 5
As a family with 2 small children we were keen to find a holiday that would satisfy all our needs; lots of playing space, near a beach, ponies for the boys, historical cities for visiting, chilling out time and just something new and different.

Our week-long break at Amber Farm was divine and ticked all our boxes. The weather varied from one day which was drizzly and cool to a couple of days of Majorca-type heat but we adjusted our activities accordingly and didnt miss out.

We spent a few days at the amazingly wide and white-sanded Leba beach which is no more than 15 minutes drive away, as well as visiting the huge sand dunes in the nearby national park - and everyone enjoyed riding the bikes we hired for the morning. The Tarzan Park (climbing activities) and Jurassic Park (dinosaur and nature park) are good if you have younger children.

A couple of very, very nice dinners were had at the marina restaurant, and apart from that every other meal out was filling and freshly made. The Polish aren't big wine drinkers - beer and spirits are the order of the day, and wine choice is a bit limited.

Although we hired a car for the duration of our stay, we decided to take the train for the 2-hour journey to Gdansk to visit this stunning, must-see city. The children loved the touristy nick-nacks and walking along the riverside; we loved the carefully-rebuilt architecture, and the good food and wine.

I can't emphasise enough the friendliness and helpfullness of everyone we came in contact with from Karolina and Wojciech at the farm to the shop staff in the local deli in Wicko through to the staff at the larger Biedronka supermarket in Lebork (don't bother with the Lidl, we found Biedronka to be far better in terms of pricing, customer service and product choice).

The farm has a wifi connection which was a must for us, and although slow, it meant we could stay in touch with our office. This was a big plus.

The one comment I would make which would have enhanced our stay beyond the excellent experience it was, would be that some local tourist information within the apartment would have been welcome - maybe even a guests' comments book where those staying could share their experiences of great places to visit, good eateries and recommended activities.

Amber Farm = great holidays

  • 5 of 5
The holidays on the Amber farm were great. The farm is like the photos on the website. The apartment war very clean and pleasant. Our daughter Michelle (10 years) was allowed to ride every afternoon. She was very happy and spend her free time with the horses. She fed the horses with apples and carrots. At the Amber farm live also gooses, chickens, cats, dogs, 1 pig and 1 goat. Karolina and Wojtek were very kind and helpful. Karolina gave us fresh eggs from chickens of Amber farm - delicious. The weather was´nt very summerly. On nice days we were on the beach, in case of rain we read books and played games. We like to come back on the peaceful Amber farm.
