“Paradise in Porlock'”
Reviewed 27 June 2011

Just returned from a 2 night stay at 'delightful' Amberton. A little piece of heaven, absolute bliss. Best B&B we have ever stayed in, we are spreading the word about wonderful, welcoming Wendy. I could go on and repeat everything said by previous reviewers but suffice to say we only have one complaint our stay wasn't long enough!!!!!! Can't wait to
return to this beautiful haven, keep up the good work Wendy and of course Mike.

Amberton is a perfect B&B.

Our room, with a view, patio doors and outside seating area, was spotless and as well as a comfortable bed, we had a two-seater leather settee, t.v., video, and a proper dining table and chairs. The real bonus, however, is the small kitchen area which has a sink, 'fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, cutlery and crockery, etc. etc.

The Continental breakfast, brought to outside your door, is very good and includes freshly homemade bread, croissants, yoghurt, cheese, salami and much more. There is also a supply of good quality frozen meals in the freezer outside the room which you can purchase - we did and they were delicious.

Wendy has thought of everything you could need. She has also got the balance just right and leaves you to get on with things but is there if you need her.

A super place and we would love to stay there again.

Amberton is a fantastic place to stay - everything about our experience was perfect. Wendy is a charming hostess, the location is amazing, and the room supremely comfortable with everything you could possibly want. We really appreciated the flexibility of breakfast arrangements, and the option to have snacks or even a meal in (if we'd wanted) - it really gives the best of self-catering with the personal touches of the best B&B. I've recommended this to all my friends!

Bed and Breakfast doesn't cover it! The accomodation was excellent, the view from our balcony was wonderful. There was a small area with sink, microwave, kettle, plates and glasses. Wendy made fresh bread, croisants, pastries etc for breakfast, butter, jams, marmalade, yogurts etc were freely available along with milk, tea and coffee, a request form was left daily for breakfast items. Literature for local sightseeing was freely available. We came and went during the day, had a brew, went out again. At the end of our stay Wendy asked if there was anything which could have made our stay better, we couldn't think of a thing! Nothing was too much trouble.

Our en-suite room at Amberton had everything we could possibly need for a short stay, The bed was extremely comfortable, and each morning we ate our continental breakfast (which included fresh home-baked bread and croissants) on our private decking, high up in the hills overlooking the sea. The room had a small kitchen area with a sink, mircrowave, toaster, etc, and a freeview tv , DVD player, a small table and chairs, and a two-seater sofa. DVDs, books, maps and local information were free to borrow.
We loved it - a most enjoyable stay.

Wendy has really thought carefully about what makes a good B&B. While some may quibble about the lack of a cooked breakfast, the flexibility of the 'DIY' approach (with excellent choice and - weather permitting - the al fresco option) far outweighs any disadvantages. The room was so well equipped that this place is like the best of self catering meets bed & breakfast. You can even bring your own food back, if you do not fancy eating out. The view is great, the bed comfortable, the location peaceful, the dogs delightful - and all just a 7-8 minute (downhill!) walk into the village with its pubs, shops etc. Reversing out of the steep drive is a challenge - but the only one at accommodation which is both extremely restful and very welcoming. Highly recommended.

From it's spectacular location to the supreme hospitality. Amberton ticks every box. Care is taken to ensure every comfort, whilst allowing guests all the privacy and space they need. An especially nice touch is the provision of kitchenettes and microwaves so you can cook 'at home' rather than eat out every night.
It's also a great location for walking - with many right on the doorstep. Some beautiful woodland, moorland and coastal treks. You could easily spend a holiday there without using your car! I've now recommended Amberton to my whole family, so watch out Wendy - there are more of us on the way!
