Cloud Hill was designed exclusively as a "one of a kind" house for a very demanding Client. The house design was the result of a limited submission architectural competition and was constructed and completely fitted out in 1965.

The house was featured in the 1972 Daily Mail book of House Plans as the House of the Year and is considered by many as an Icon to the 60's. The House has changed very little from the photographs and we quite regularly receive visitors whom ask if they can look at the house.

It is rumoured in the area that Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones tried to purchase the building before its completion and that Ringo Starr of the Beatles was a regular visitor to the property

Previous owners of the house have passed down the information that the House was originally named Cloud Hill after the home of T E Lawrence, Lawrence of Arabia whose home was Clouds Hill. It is rumoured that there was some family connection at the time of original construction but unfortunately we cannot verify this at this moment

Our home is set within two acres of welsh hillside and almost completely surrounded by trees which make the house very private despite its proximity to the A5. The bedrooms, because of the unusual layout are located at the rear overlooking a secluded garden surrounded by trees, one of which is a massive Oak tenanted by mischievous squirrels that tease our three cats. Our lounge is enormous and equipped with TV and hi fi and opens through large french doors onto a private lawn which is available for evening relaxation. There is more than enough easy car parking in front of the house and should our guests require, a car may be left parked during the day.

The bedroom accommodation comprises two bedrooms which are generally let to our guests and our own master suite which can be let should the demand arise.

Bedroom One
Is twin bedded with access ensuite to wash basin wc and shower. The beds can be placed together if required or seperated as two singles.

Bedroom Two
Is twin bedded with access to a bathroom fitted with wash basin and bath.

Bedroom Three
Our own suite is fully ensuite with bath shower WC and vanity basin and self contained. It is let only when the area accommodation is stressed or we get a booking requirement for six persons.
