Secluded and private setting

Located in the heart of rural Wiltshire, Clouds House is a Grade II* listed building in the beautiful village of East Knoyle. Designed by architect Philip Webb, Clouds House has provided life-changing treatment for addiction since 1983. The house is private and secluded with stunning scenery.

Peer-to-peer support

Over the years, we've helped thousands of people lead a healthy and rewarding life, but as former Clouds House resident, A.A Gill would attest, our purpose is not to pamper, it is to save lives. There is strong evidence that peer-to-peer support makes recovery more likely and more secure.

Freshly prepared meals

All our meals are freshly prepared on the premises by our excellent team of chefs and kitchen staff who lovingly prepare menus to suit all dietary requirements. Good food and communal meal times bring people together and are an integral part of our treatment philosophy.

Before going to Clouds I was broken and desperate. Today I am starting to know who I am and what I like, and am starting to have confidence. Most importantly I have hope, ambitions and desire—things I thought were impossible.
