Beautifully positioned in the East Sussex village of Camber – part of 1066 Country – Cloud House is a mere two-minute walk from the vast, white-sand beach at Camber Sands, and its nature-steeped dunes that stretch out for over three miles.
Yet once you’ve clapped eyes on your coastal retreat, all thoughts of leaving may just disappear on the clouds.
Owned by a wildly creative travel journalist and interior designer, Cloud House is quirkily styled, with a unique sense of fun throughout. Expect to whip your phone out in every room, updating your Instagram like never before!
The ground floor is home to a gleaming, well-equipped kitchen that’s ideal for whipping up fancy feasts, and baking cakes with the kids alike. You’ll find a gorgeous welcome hamper waiting for you, too, packed with local gourmet goodies – plus a dozen fresh, free-range eggs for tasty breakfasts.
Enjoy the delicious fruits of your labour in the mid-century-styled dining room, with its sociable table, or take them outside to the colourfully furnished rear garden… which also features a barbecue with smoker, and festoon lighting, just in case you’re tempted to linger awhile!
Meanwhile, the cushion-strewn sitting room is made for relaxing, with its plush, irresistibly squishy seating, and upcycled accessories.
Upstairs await three gorgeous bedrooms, sleeping a total of 10 guests, if you’re using the sofa bed and the pull-out trundle bed in the bunk room – an ideal room for the kids.Keep reading

What the guests of Cloud House say
“We had a great stay at the cloud cabin for a long weekend by the coast out of London. House is a short walk to the beach, has been recently renovated and is a great space with a nice backyard for when the wind gets up at Camber. Would come back again. Nicola is also super responsive and very hospitable.”
“We had a wonderful week at Cloud House and that was largely due to Nicola’s attention to detail and care into making our stay as personalised as possible. She had quite literally stocked the house with everything you would need. The furniture and other equipment in the house is brand new so everything worked as it should. Nicola always responded to my (silly) questions within 30 minutes, which was reassuring and helped me prepare for the trip with my two young children. I would highly recommend Cloud House, it was clean, modern and Nicola is a fabulous host.”
“What a wonderful place to stay! We had a great few days in the lovely Cloud House. The house is beautifully decorated and incredibly well-equipped; Nicola has thought of everything, even down to towels for the beach and blankets for the garden. The beach is just a couple of minutes walk to glorious fine sand and dunes. We enjoyed visiting Rye, Dungeness and Hastings too. Finally, Nicola was super on it with the comms, from recommending child-friendly activities for our one year old to helping us find items around the house and suggesting delicious places to eat. Thank you!”
