This review gave us 10 out of 10 on Reevo.  "We both enjoyed our stay at Amber, my wife is disabled and managed very well in the cottage finding the lift and rise chair helpful, as this is what lets most holiday cottages down, the shower in the wet room was superb with plenty of space.  We both enjoyed peace & quiet at basin howe, with lovely gardens and the sculptures  amazing.  We will return as there is so much to do in the area a week is never enough.

A wonderful quiet spot for real relaxation and rest. Superb sunsets while we stayed were our highlight! Facilities are as good as they look and seem on the website. Thank you for our short stay.

A good place for a holiday - spacious, well equipped with comfortable furniture, planning/execution to make it disabled friendly made it very suitable for me in my wheelchair and we have enjoyed staying here.

Well...where do we start? We have had a truly amazing stay here at Amber Cottage, the most beautiful and peaceful holiday cottage we've stayed in over the years. Fabulous gardens, a plethora of wildlife (we saw deer, hares many birds including the woodpecker!) and the big winner ….stargazing in the Pod, spotting Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and loads of shooting stars. Thank you so much we will be back.
