Your Hosts

ruth & wayne

Welcome to Amherst House. I am Semi retired – meaning, I am and my husband, Wayne, is not. He is a chiropractor and we own and operate Amherst house Bed and Breakfast. We have travelled lots and love meeting new folks. We look forward to having you stay with us.

We are no strangers to making you feel welcome and at home, having previously owned and operated Victorian Rose Bed and Breakfast for sixteen years.

The Garden Terrace

our favourite spot

We enjoy spending mornings our on the garden terrace where we often serve our guests breakfast all summer long. It’s the perfect spot to take in the morning air and listen to the spectacular bird song all around. The blooms that surround the terrace are full of colour to match the seasons.

If you miss the morning, the evening on the terrace is just as divine. It’s a place where you can relax after a long day exploring the county an share a laugh or take in the peaceful quietness.
