Just spent five days at Highcliffe House. We simply cannot fault this hotel in any way. From the moment we arrived the owners, Jason and Neil who were really great hosts, made us feel so welcome and always seemed to have the time for a friendly chat.

Waking up to sea view was an absolute treat. Breakfast was seriously good, the Eggs Royale was worthy of any Michellin star table.. Jason...

The B&B was so welcoming, always with a lovely scent in the rooms, music playing so you didn't walk into a empty feeling house. The resident areas on the ground floor were...

Lynton and the surrounding area was always a favourite of the Romantic poets because of its dramatic scenery. Highcliffe House is located overlooking Lynton towards the sea and the steep cliffs bordering Exmoor. The views are breathtaking. The house is beautiful and has been sensitively restored to keep some of the best features of its Victorian origin. The breakfasts are...
