Cliff farm is a charming little house, just outside the village of Iden and about a 3min drive from Rye. First impressions are very welcoming, homely, quaint and peaceful. I think homely is the best description as we were warmly greeted with a steaming pot of tea. We stayed in the double en-suit room. The bathroom has just been put in and the shower is amazing! I would suggest a blind being put up over the window though, having sheep bleeding at you as you emerge from the shower can be a bit odd! The room itself was nicely proportioned and comfortably accomoadates the bed, two arm chairs, a table and a wardrobe. The wardrobe was the only place to put clothing, and as I take everything bar the kitchen sink, I found some of my clothes had to live for the most part in my suitcase. The style is English country house and is very charming. The bed very comfy and overall a very nice room. However, the room did get rather hot and by keeping the window open at night, we did attract a few flies which were rather annoying. A nice desk or standing fan would have made it perfect, as we could have shut the window at night. This is the only very small downside and it is highly outweighed by the positives of Cliff Farm. Breakfast was very scrummy and there was lots of it, cereal, then toast, the a full English breakfast complete with local eggs, bacon and sausage! Yum yum! Pat's homemade hash browns were to die for! So, in conclusion, a hidden gem, surrounded by fields and sheep. For a quite, relaxing and homely place to stay in this wonderful part of the world I would look no further. And the room rate of £65 per nigh for the two of us was the icing on a very pleasant cake! Thank you, Cliff Farm, for a wonderful holiday!
