Cliff Farm
Ranked #2 of 4 Iden B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 26, 2012

We have been going to Cliff Farm since 1986 and love the hospitality, the views, the hearty breakfast and the friendship. Now with an ensuite the B&B has become even more like home away from home. Thank you, Pat and Jeff, for always making us feel so welcome and congrats on the great job you guys do on a daily basis !

Room Tip: Go for room 4 with the ensuite !

On arrival pat made us very welcome serving cups of tea and biscuits! Pat was very chatty and immediately we felt welcome. She showed us to our room- number 4, beautifully original in a lovely sage green color with an amazing view from sash window over Romney marsh.

We settled quickly and went to town for dinner and returned to the lovely Lounge which was again very traditional and homely. Fire was burning too and the aroma of a log fire completed the atmosphere.

Next morning we awoke to the glorious sound of sheep 'baa-ing' and a real sense of tranquility -we came down stairs for breakfast. The table was set with lovely country style crockery etc. pat greeted us and within a small while a lovely cooked breakfast was brought to us. Cereals are also offered and toast is aplenty which was just right for us to start the day on!

Room was lovely and clean and couldn't really fault anything- other guests we met were also seemingly happy with their accommodation and were great to chat to!

All in all pat is a wonderful host, she and Jeff have a real dream of a home and we are very much hoping to make a short stop off for a few nights in August to break up the trip when we travel across to France.

My friends and I stayed here for a night during our cycling holiday, we arrived wet and cold. The owner went out of her way to make us welcome, she put the fire and kettle on, and put an airer over the fire to dry our wet clothes. Tea was made and we all thawed out!! (note this was in June!!) She sorted out a taxi for us and recommended the local italian, which was great. Beautiful house complete with creaky floorboards! Clean, comfy rooms and great breakfast, with home made hash browns - really yummy. Sheep right outside the window!Rye is a beautiful place and I would like to return,both to Rye and Cliff Farm.

I have been going to Cliff Farm for 30 years, and love the location, very peaceful, over looking fields and farm land. Pat and Jeff the owners are lovely couple, Always make you feel welcome.
Full english breakfast is excellent and sets you up for the day. We usually go for a long walk, over the feilds and across the river , you can walk for miles. Or if you are energetic walk into Rye, along the river bank. To drive into is only about a mile. Were you will find a lovely old town
built along the river. There are some lovely pubs not far, that do very good food. All in all a very place to visit. Also very peaceful no London traffic to put up with, only sheep baa-ing, and birds singing. The owners are putting in on suites as we speak so will be even more popular.

We stayed at Cliff Farm B&B for three nights and felt at home immediately, being welcomed by Pat with tea and biscuits and advice on where to have Sunday lunch.
Pat and Jeff are wonderful hosts and the B&B is a gem. Yes, the B&B is rather inexpensive but absolutely no concessions are made on cleanliness, spaciousness or the super farmhouse breakfast. The rooms are made and towels etc. supplied every day. We woke up every morning to the soft sound of sheep and with a stunning view over the marshes. And then of course there was the breakfast, every day a bit different but always just great.
Since we like walking, we tend to choose B&Bs in the hills. Cliff Farm is, as the website says, on the edge of the marshes about 200 yards from the military canal, but what it doesn't say is that the footpath that climbs up the cliff behind the B&B leads into a landscape of unending rolling hills, mainly sheep pastures, with an abundant choice of routes. Rye is only an hour's walk away and a bit further afield the 1066 long distance path provides a fantastic experience of rural Sussex (better, I think, than footpaths in the Weald or the North Downs). We were there during the lambing period and that made it even more special.
Cliff Farm B&B will from now on be our base camp for exploring the Sussex hills and we are already looking forward to continuing our chats with Pat and Jeff.

Room Tip: Front rooms have views over the marshes, rear rooms look onto the cliff's sheep pasture.

After the hustle & bustle of London we were lucky to find this place. As it was late in the day day most of the B&B's in Rye were full. We were welcomed here with a nice cuppa and biscuits by the very friendly owners who also recommended a nice local pub for our evening meal. It was so peaceful here, we should have stayed longer. Enjoyed watching the fox and cubs outside our bedroom window, also the abundance of birdlife

We stayed here after a family wedding in Rye and occupied all the available rooms. Pat was very welcoming and made us copious cups of tea on our arrival, served in the cosy guest sitting room. There were washbasins in each room and a downstairs shower that we all shared. I thought that might be a problem but it worked out just fine. The breakfast was superb - beautifully cooked and plenty of it. My daughter opted out of the full English and Pat provided her with a bowl of fruit and a yoghurt instead. Coming from a city it was lovely to wake up to the sound of sheep bleating. All the rooms had lovely views of the fields around the farm. We would definitely stay here again if we visit the area in the future. I think Pat could put a few pictures of the rooms on the Farm's website as they are all very pretty.
