We stayed overnight in the Regency Room at the Ambers in October 2014. Diane was away but Gerard and Wolf (Belgian Shepherd) were there to greet us on our arrival. The room was lovely and clean with some nice touches such as fresh flowers. Gerard was a very friendly host and happily supplied us with tea and biscuits on our... More

Thank you Gerard, Diane and Wolf, We had the most enjoyable time staying at your elegant house, and would highly recommend the Ambers to all our friends.

We had a really lovely time at the Ambers, even in the middle of winter it is beautiful. Diane, Gerard and Wolf were such lovely hosts, the location was so quiet and relaxing, the set-up was gorgeous, the food delicious and we were very reluctant to leave.

We stayed on “The Ambers” for only one night. When we had known that is was such a beautiful house, with a marvellous garden, we should have stayed longer. Dianne and Gerard are very good hosts. The breakfast was excellent. We regret it that we had to leave.
