Amberton Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #14 of 18 Porlock B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 26, 2011

Peace quiet yet a few steps away from good Pubs and restuarants. Country walks right from the door. Accommodation and fittings first class,Wendy welcomed us as though we had met her on many occasions so well organised and quietly efficient well done!. Don't forget to take a torch (provided in your room) if you come back from the pub on a really dark night without it the last few yards from the road to the property become very entertaining!.You can of course drive door to door.

One of the things we can find off-putting about B&Bs is the awkward, polite but stilted conversation in the breakfast room while ploughing through the cooked breakfast which almost never seems as good on the plate as it was in your head. So Amberton was definitely one for us.

Only two rooms (but fantastically well-equipped with balcony, comfy sofa, microwave, fridge, lovely shower), so you pre-order breakfast the night before and it's delivered right your door at the time you choose. Home-made bread, hot croissants or pastries etc. Perfect.

Great walking right from the front door (you can buy a good book of 12 local walks from Wendy). Plenty of eating choices 5 minutes down the hill - we stuck to The Ship which has several real ales and good, very reasonably-priced food. Entertainment on the way back was provided by 2 cats which appear out of nowhere and follow you. Apparently one of them may try to jump onto your shoulder if you loiter. I swear it was nothing to do with the real ale...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely B&B. A lovely gem tucked away in Porlock. You couldn't fault a thing and the hospitality from the hostess was top class. We will visit again very soon. Dave and Annie

My wife and I had a lovely few nights stay at the Amberton B&B in Porlock. Great welcome by Wendy on arrival . Well appointed modern room, Good selection of teas and continental breakfast arrangements. As night fell all that could be heard was the wildlife, fantastic.

Fantastic hostess,location and service. A wonderful relaxing place to be. The extra facilities, such as the option of eating in, fresh bread in the morning, breakfast when you want it, all make Amberton the place to stay.Wendy made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We would certainly go back there, this time for longer.

Amberton is quite simply the most relaxing, tranquil place to get away from it all. One of the best things about this B&B is that you can come & go as you please or just 'hang out' on your deck if you're not feeling too active!

Many B&Bs have rooms you can't wait to get out of in the morning - not this one. It was like a home away from home - huge bathroom, lovely, bright room with lots of space. The bed was so comfy & the shower was great (really powerful). Great having the little kitchenette - great for preparing picnics! I also loved having breakfast brought to the room instead of sitting in some dining room every morning.

And Wendy was just the most welcoming, friendly hostess. We'll definitely be going back.

We stayed at Amberton for a long weekend in July and we loved it. The location is wonderful, with fabulous views across the countryside to Porlock Weir. Both rooms have little decks where you can sit and admire the view while having breakfast or whatever - this is a lovely bonus feature! Our room was very comfortable, and Wendy has thought of everything you could possibly need - there are even sandwich bags so you can make a picnic lunch! It's great to have a little fridge in your room to keep milk and cold drinks in etc. and I loved being able to have breakfast in our room at a time to suit ourselves. Wendy is extremely helpful and obliging and goes out of her way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Porlock is a great village to choose as a base from which to explore Exmoor and I would thoroughly recommend Amberton. - we hope to go back soon!
