“Another great visit”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

I hate having to give a good review as we want to save it all for our selves. Wendy is phenominal a great host and always welcoming. nothing seems to be to much trouble.
Cleanliness is second to none, and breakfast is as good and healthier than any cooked one.

The location is super with many great walks nearby, also a good location for access to the vast national park.

The quaint (almost time stood still) village of Porlock is a little Gem.

Keep up the EXCELLENT work Wendy and we hope to see you again soon.

Room Tip: All good rooms and very Quiet

What a lovely place to stay. We have just spent the last 4 nights at Amberton, the room was excellent the view was perfect and the breakfasts (included home made bread) were amazing.
The room was very clean lovely size and plenty of tea, coffee, proper milk and loads of biscuits.
The view from the terrace was over the village towards the bay and the sea.
The breakfasts had home made bread, I may have already said that but its worth repeating.
All in all one of the best places we have stayed in.

Room Tip: Both the rooms have the same view, so either is ok.

What a brilliant find....my friend and I stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of August...and we couldn't fault it..the owner Wendy couldn't have been more helpful..nothing was to much trouble..what a beautiful room...and Porlock such a lovely little sleepy village..was 5 minutes walk away...we had a great time..location was great for getting to other nearby places..would definitely stay there again...

Room Tip: we were on the ground floor which had a lovely patio which opened out onto a balcony with table and...

This was our 3rd visit and we are already planning a 4th. When we get to Amberton we
feel as if we are coming home. Wendy, as always, a fantastic hostess, the rooms as
always spotless, breakfast on the balcony and sitting out till late watching the villagers playing
a game of bowls. The worst thing about Amberton is the packing up and leaving.
My husband and I love the peace and quiet and the easy access to stunning views.

My sister, Yvonne and husband, Nigel, introduced us to Amberton B&B in a lovely part of the country, Porlock in Somerset. Wendy has got B&B down to a fine art. Everything anyone could possibly need, is at hand. Continental breakfast was delicious - so many choices! A view to die for. Room spotless - shower is amazing. B&B is conveniently situated near the village and so many wonderful places to visit, which are easily accessible. It's just what the doctor ordered - the feel-good factor.

Room Tip: Breakfast on the balcony not to be missed!

We stayed at Amberton for a couple of nights 2 years ago and were delighted to return and find it just as inviting. Very friendly welcome, beautiful spacious and spotlessly clean room with a balcony with lovely views across to the bay of Porlock and a fantastic location for walking on Exmoor.
We very much enjoy the flexibility of a continental breakfast (actually superior to most breakfasts we have had on the continent), in our room at a time to suit ourselves.
Also for walkers would highly recommend the superb local maps Wendy has on sale - at a very modest price - with every footpath clearly marked as well as snippets of local information.
A most enjoyable short break once more.

As always clean, spacious, and well appointed with a view to die for. A friendly welcome with a nothing is too much trouble approach from Wendy. The comprehensive continental breakfast is such a pleasant change from the usual grease fest. Ideal for walking, catching the bus or motoring. Wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Somerset
