We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at Amberley House. The kitchen was equipped with all we needed and the fridge freezer storage was perfect too. The gardens were delightful and the location ideal. We could easily walk into town or along the river from the house. There was easy access onto the main roads too for when we used our car.
