Gdansk house description

The House of Storks is a thatched Polish-style country house luxuriously equipped to western standards, sleeping six. We have made the House available to guests through HomeAway for 10 years.
The House of Storks offers 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open plan downstairs, large garden with barbecue area and a wood fire hot tub – and a good WiFi connection.
The House of Storks is in a small development outside the village of Bojano, with woods and fields around. It is in a rural and peaceful location.
Essentials can be bought in the village (2km away) and major supermarkets are within easy reach by car.
New roads provide easy access to the tri-city of Gdansk/Gdynia/Sopot (15-20 kms away)which offer great sight-seeing -particularly in the wonderful old town of Gdansk - fine restaurants, boat trips to the resort of Hel, and good shopping all at reasonable prices. The picturesque Kaszuby lake district is easily reached. Malborg castle is also well worth visiting. You can swim and wind-surf at Puck and Hel, and sun-bath and swim at the beach at Sopot.

Flights: Ryanair - daily fights from London Stansted to Gdansk.
Wizzair - daily flights from London Luton to Gdansk.

You can also fly to Warsaw with British Airways, Easy Jet , and then take the train to Gdansk - or fly Warsaw to Gdansk with Lot Polish Airlines.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: 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.

                      Why the Owner Chose Gdansk:
                      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.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      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.
