Amber Farm is a 33 hectare organic farm and stables (14 horses) surrounded by gently rolling fields and forests - just 15km from the popular seaside resort of Leba.

The farmhouse has been converted into 4 apartments. 3 of which are available for rent; they are called Aronia, Jagoda, and Morela. They are fully furnished to western standards and each is equipped with satellite TV. Please click on the links above to open separate pages so you can see each apartment.

Horse riding lessons for all levels especially children, and stabling is available for clients with their own horses. Bicycles are also available for client use.

Close to the farm house and within the grounds are a play area for children and a small natural lake with seating and a BBQ area beside it.

Nearby: secluded beaches, the Slowinski National Park, famous for its shifting sand dunes (the highest in Europe), and the Sarbasko and Lebsko lakes, excellent for wind surfing and sailing. Also, for children there are many activities within a 20 minute drive.

The beautiful historic city of Gdansk can easily be reached for day trips.

Please note that the farm is a working farm and children must be supervised (especially around the lake).

We use no chemicals on Amber Farm and it has been certified as organic by the Polish Ministry of Agriculture.

We grow oats for the horses and use horse manure as fertiliser for our fields of Aronia bushes. Aronia berries are rich in vitamins and are used in herbal teas, jams, and fruit juices. We also use the berries to flavour vodka.

The farm is a very quiet and peaceful place (even at harvest time). At night there is little light pollution so on a clear night you will have a wonderful view of the stars.

This is one of the paddocks where the horses are exercised – it is by the tree-lined drive into the farm.

 

Plenty of room for children – and adults. The house is just to the right of the picture, and you can see the two lakes in front of the farm house.

Parents can watch their children play from one of the barbecue areas.

Poland is rich in wildlife and near the farm are wild boar (though we have not seen any on the farm) and deer (which do come on the farm and eat the plants). Storks and cranes fly in the early summer to Poland to nest, and fly back south in September. Please see http://storks.poland.pl/

Poland is home in the summer to about a quarter of the world’s storks. About 10km from Amber Farm is an old manor house which in summer is taken over by storks – you can often see 10 to 20 nesting pairs there and in the village around the manor house.

Sometimes you can see whole fields covered with cranes as they assemble ready to migrate – for a number of evenings they have “practice flights” when thousands of cranes take off like a great cloud - before they finally leave for another year.

 

Firewood's always at the ready for an impromptu evening's supper of barbecued polish sausages (and polish beer if you wish) under the stars! This is one of two gazebos around the lake where you can relax from the heat on a summer’s day or enjoy an evening’s picnic or barbecue.

Amber Farm is near the Baltic coast and does not experience the extremes of temperature that apply in central and southern Poland.

In the summer it is generally comfortably warm – if you are used to a North European climate! Temperatures are normally in the low 20s but in extremely hot summers do sometimes get into the 30s.

In the coldest winter month, February, temperatures are normally around zero and can be much colder! – but it soon warms up in the spring.

Autumn can be very pleasant – and there will be few tourists in Gdansk at that time of year.

Horses and ponies are available for riding lessons, and experienced riders can ride through neighbouring fields to nearby beaches.

We have plenty of room to stable your own horses as well!

Karolina and her husband Wojtek look after the farm. They live in the fourth apartment with their little son Szymek – and two cats and two dogs.
