Reviewed 5 December 2010

Just returned with our friends from a weekend break, both rooms were kept immaculate, were spacious and very nicely furnished with lots of attention to detail.
Wendy was very welcoming, helpful and her breakfasts were delicious with homemade bread and freshly baked pastries.
We will definately be returning and highly recommend this B&B

I can't add anymore to the previous reviews. A really well thought out, very comfortable B&B. I can only emphasise how good the breakfast is. It is continental but superb, with easily enough fresh baked bread to do for lunch as well.

Wonderful location, with views you could sit and watch all day.

If I had any moan at all it was that I really like a bath, especially after going on a long arduous walk, and the room we stayed in had a shower only: a great shower and suitable for disabled, which goes to show the level of thought provided by the owners.

Wendy and Mike the hosts of Amberton were charming and more than helpful.
The location, on an hillside and close proximity to Porlock and resturants was ideal.
The B&B was excellant and private with cosy and roomy accomadation, incldinding a Kitchenette,dining table, sofa and very comfy bed.
The continental breakfast was excellent as were the views and, on this occassion the weather.
To summerize on a single thing to complain about!

We stayed at Amberton for three nights/4 days and particularly liked the 'kitchenette' arrangement which was very well equipped. The room was very pleasant and having the two setter leather sofa + table and chairs in the room made it more than a bedroom. The location was perfect, a 3/4 minute walk into Porlock which had a variety of restaurants and pubs and plenty of walks on your doorstep suitable for various walking abilities. A three night stay was just enough. The standard of accomodation would be hard to beat, the continental breakfast was very good with homemade bread/croissants/pastries etc and we were made to feel very welcome; nothing was too much trouble.

Me and my girlfriend stayed for a long weekend recently and have nothing but praise for this B&B. The room is cosy and welcoming, in a great location for exploring the surrounding area and with all modern amenities, including WiFi. However, the real gem is Wendy who runs the B&B - the breakfast is amazing (and negates the need for lunch) and she couldn't be more helpful. A great place to visit, made better by the friendly stay that we enjoyed at the Amberton.

An excelent place to stay the location was super but not for the infirm, the walks from Amberton were breathtaking and varied. The view from the deck whilst having breakfast was fantastic. The service from mine host Wendy was second to none with everything thought of that you could wish for and I am sure that if it wasn't Wendy would soon make it available. We would not like to recomend the Amberton because we also want to keep it just for ourselves but feel this would be very selfish so dont hessitate and book. We were planning to go abroad but have changed our plans and we are now planning another trip to The Amberton instead in the very near future. An excellent breakfast with lovely fresh bread, cheese and croisants

I think all the reviews so far say it all! The Amberton is a totally brilliant place to stay.

EVERYTHING has been thought of and provided.

Thank you Wendy - you have provided a first-class bed and breakfast - the best we've ever been to.
