My partner and I had the pleasure to stay at Highcliffe during a short break in Cornwall at Easter. Simon and Vanessa run a very welcoming and stylish Guest House, so it was the perfect base from which to enjoy our holiday in this lovely part of the country. Very comfortable room, and very well made and presented breakfast. Simon... More

Highcliffe B&B is a modern reinvention of the seaside stopover. It takes the luxurious attention to detail of the most expensive hotels and makes it accessible, relaxed and totally on-trend. The owners have obviously put a huge amount of thought and effort into achieving what is as near-perfect a place to stay as you are ever likely to experience at... More

Highcliffe B&B was wonderful. Great rooms that are really nicely appointed, lovely communal spaces, delicious breakfasts and, most importantly, Simon was the most accommodating host. Would recommend Highcliffe in a heartbeat.

We had a wonderful two night stay and we just didn't want to leave. A dream break in a super B&B run by a lovely couple. We visit every year and we can't recommend it enough. Nothing is too much trouble for Simon and Ness. It's easy to see why this couple are award winners.

I had the opportunity to try both singles (no - not a reviewer - just that the large one wasn't available at first)....both are lovely. The smaller one has the basin in the room but also has an...

Stayed while visiting Falmouth Uni. Highcliffe was perfect, from the welcoming atmosphere to the lovely breakfasts and amazing design detail throughout, not forgetting comfortable beds and best quality linens. Nothing was overlooked . We'll be back!
