My fiance and I stayed here for one night for a friend's wedding nearby. The owners could not have been more helpful - we were offered a cup of tea on arrival and our luggage was carried up into the beautifully appointed bedroom, which had stunning views over the hills towards Bodiam Castle. They even offered to lend us torches for walking home from the wedding and driving us back to the wedding venue to pick up the car the next morning! After a night of fun, we came home to the house, which smelled wonderfully of freshly baked bread - which we were served at breakfast the next morning! Breakfast was amazing - a wide selection of homemade and local foods that made us feel spoilt rotten. Through the open windows, we could hear birds sing and watch pheasants explore the garden. Although we only stayed for one night, it is a place that makes you feel you are on holiday as soon as you set your foot into it, and we were sad to leave. Congrats to the owners - you have created a wonderful haven of tranquility and beauty!

Dear guest, Thank you for your very kind review. It would appear that you enjoyed you stay at "Clouds" as much as we enjoyed your visit. It is also lovely to know that our guests appreciate the beauty and tranquility of our location as much as we do. We look forward to your returning to us when you next need a little rest and recouperation..

An excellent B&B. We only stayed for one night for a wedding in the village and only wish we could have had more time enjoying the lovely house and views. Very friendly and attentive hosts – they gave us torch for finding our way back and a key to the front door as we were back late and even offered to drive us to the venue!

The breakfast itself was superb - fantastic cooking, only the best local and homemade ingredients and plenty of it! Great to see so much pride being taken.

It's only a small place with a shared bathroom but everything was immaculately clean and organised. Perfect if you want a brilliantly homely feel more akin to staying with relatives. Highly recommended.

Dear Matt1, We are delighted that you enjoyed your all too brief stay with us. However we must apologise for the fact that you found your sleep quality slightly less than excellent. Had you pre-advised us that you and your lovely lady were so elegantly tall we would have reserved our king size bed for you. Your fellow wedding guests were the first to book and the first to arrive so they had the choice of rooms. Should you honour us with a return visit we will ensure that your accommodation is more fitting your stature. And on that occasion you will have sole exclusive use of the adjacent facilities, unless of course you choose to come with three companions and use the entire guests' suite, as on this occasion.

This is a charming and friendly B and B with a family feel. It is run by a lovely couple, John and Fiona, who were very welcoming from the start and made my husband and i feel part of the family and very much at home. The bedroom was very comfortable, and the bathroom was clean with a good shower. The breakfast was a definite highlight - with delicious granola and yoghurt, and a menu full of options to choose from, tailor-made to suit what the guests wanted. The view over Bodiam and the castle was particularly lovely. We also felt that the whole experience was very good value for money, compared to similar mini-breaks we have taken.

You moment you arrive, you know you from the warmth of the welcome from John and Fiona that you will be happy in this exceptional place. An immaculately cared-for house in a beautiful garden, everything is pleasing to the senses: the view over the valley to Bodiam Castle, the tranquil bedroom with its most comfortable of beds, capacious wardrobes, waking up to the sound of the birds with the delicious smell of newly baked bread wafting up, the delicious breakfast with home-made granola and jams and freshly prepared fruit, as well as locally sourced foods, which you can take outside on the balcony watching the birds feeding in the garden if the weather is good. You are guests in a home rather than visitors to an ordinary B&B, with the most charming, interesting hosts, so generous with their time.
In the heart of the Sussex countryside, it's the best possible base for visiting the many National Trust properties within a 10-mile radius - Sissinghurst Castle and its garden, for instance - and such places as local vineyards and the beautiful Cinque Port, Rye, an easy drive away, not to speak of the excellent restaurants nearby.

John and Fiona are superb hosts catering to a traveller's every need, We believe Clouds is probably the best B&B experience we have experienced. That was evident soon after arriving - the welcoming tea and homemade shortbread biscuits, the attention to detail, the attractively decorated and very comfortable room and bathroom, and the absolutely superb breakfast left us in no doubt. You are made to feel special and pampered - nothing is too much trouble.

We would suggest phoning ahead to obtain a good description of the property entrance from Dagg Lane.

Thank you for your charming comments, we are always delighted when guests show that they appreciate the efforts we make, to welcome them, make them feel comfortable and at home. It is our pleasure to share this beautiful part of The Sussex Weald with our visitors and help them enjoy the many and varied facilities that are available here. However, we do apologize if our love and enthusiasm for this "Blessed Spot" does cause us to get a bit carried away on occasions.
We do hope that you will favour us with a further visit, when next you feel the need to escape to the country, and relax in this tranquil area.
Kindest regards, John & Fiona.

We stayed two nights with friends and therefore the rate was cheaper as we did not mind sharing a bathroom, extremely good value. I don't think we have had a more comfortable room - the bed was as comfortable as our own, (often we are really pleased to get back to our own bed), the quality of all the furnishings was superb. The shower was excellent with high quality toiletries provided.

John & Fiona go out of their way to make you feel welcome - nothing is too much trouble and everything is of the very best quality - locally sourced breakfast food, home made bread and jams and the most fantastic fruit salad for breakfast.

John and Fiona are very attentive hosts and you feel as though you are friends visiting for a few days rather than paying guests.

There is no TV in the bedroom - which I personally don't mind at all, and no tea or coffee making facilities. However, John and Fiona immediately offer to make you a drink whenever you come in.

Their garden is absolutely beautiful and if you are lucky and the weather is kind you can have breakfast outside and watch woodpeckers and nuthatches feeding.

If you prefer the anonymity of hotels then this place is not for you. We enjoyed being pampered and would definitely return.

We had a wonderful night at Clouds B&B. John and Fiona really do offer 5* care to their guests and you feel pampered from the moment you arrive. The room is tastefully decorated with an extremely comfortable bed and the best in linen etc. The recommendation of dinner at the nearby Michelin starred, ' Curlew' restaurant made our stay even more memorable (perhaps that should be reviewed elsewhere though it is useful to know there is a great place to eat very near to this B&B). The view definitely makes Clouds a place to remember and a stroll round the beautiful garden before breakfast made us feel that we were well and truly in the country - completely peaceful. The breakfast surpassed all others that we have had - unbelievably good fresh fruit salad, home made bread, every kind of egg and other cooked breakfast foods (tomatoes straight from the greenhouse) All in all, we spent a shockingly long time over breakfast and enjoyed the easy conversation with our entertaining hosts. We happily recommend this top class B&B to all travellers to the area!
