Spotlessly clean accommodation in a lovely setting. We found the breakfast arrangements very relaxed and loved the continental-style menu, including home made bread. Lovely comfy bed and handy kitchenette. We will certainly be back.

This is without doubt one of the best B and B's we have ever stayed at, the welcome is friendly and the rooms are very well apointed, not only do you get the tea and coffee making facilites of the normal B&B, but you have everything you need to make a meal in your room, fridge, microwave, toaster. Breakfast is... More

I've traveled around the world and rarely have I come across a place like Amberton. Hidden on a secluded hillside in the heart of Exmoor, it was the perfect retreat for me and partner on our early September getaway. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Our hosts were attentive, helpful and made us feel like we... More

I have stayed in countless B&Bs over the years but this is without doubt the best I have ever experienced. Everything Wendy and her husband say in their description is true and as they say, they have clearly learned from their own experiences in B&Bs in setting this up. We stayed just 2 nights in July during a marathon holiday... More

We booked 2 nights here in late August as it was close to a party invite location, not really knowing what to expect. What we got was a superb, spotlessly clean decent sized room with fridge, microwave, and a very well stocked small kitchenette area. It had a large en suite shower room, fitted to a high standard (that's my... More

A room with a view over the rural seclusion of Porlock beyond to the mighty coast and sea.....space, comfort and facilities, the hallmarks of your stay.....attention to detail and unobtrusive service at a very high standard.....unassuming but helpful advice on hand when needed.....wandering down to the unpretentious historical village, sharing pleasantries with the locals and frequenting the chese shop come...

Just got back from 4 nights at Amberton and wanted to share what a lovely place it is. Wendy is lovely, very welcoming and laid-back. The B&B is set on a hillside rather than on the main road in Porlock, so is quieter and has lovely views, but is only a short walk away from pubs, shops and restaurants. The... More

A beautiful blend of B & B and self-catering. The room is very comfortable with every little thing thought of. Sitting on the deck (which is remarkably sheltered) watching the weather blow up the estuary is both beautiful and relaxing. The setting is so peaceful. The breakfast selection is wide. The croissants and pastries were light and tasty. The home... More

We stayed at Ambleton B&B as we were attending a wedding in Porlock. Wendy the owner was so welcoming and really made us feel at home. The properties 2 rooms both have their own terrace with amazing views. Breakfast was continental but offers an amazing selection with home made bread. The price was also very reasonable and in a beautiful... More

This has to be the best B&B I have ever stayed in. A very personal and friendly service and the it feels like a home from home. Spotless room with very comfortable bed and duvet, a small decking area for each room with a sea view makes it more romantic. The room is almost a small bedsit, with a sink,... More
