We stayed at Cleavers Lyng for 2 nights and it was a wonderful experience. Before entering the house, first thing you will notice is the beautiful garden and wonderful English country scene! The bed is very comfortable, and the breakfast is very tasty. It is just next to the Hertsmonceux castle. There is also an old church within walking distance to visit. The hosts are friendly and helpful, and their dogs are very very cute! The house was built in 16th century, so it is old and may not be that updated. But I think this is actually the unique part about it. The roof could be low for tall people, and occasionally you will find some spot with some dust or spider web, but overall, for a hundreds-year old building, I would say it is fairly clean and well maintained. The only thing made me a bit uncomfortable is the long mirror just outside our bathroom in the hall way. It was a bit dusty and foggy, plus the fact that the house is so old, sometimes it did make me nervous...but I assume that is just because I am not a brave girl. And no, we checked, there is no ghost in this old house. ;)
