This B&B is fantastic - the view is to die for, the rooms are beautifully furnished and spotless, and Mike and Karen are warm, friendly and extremely helpful hosts. Not to mention, the breakfasts are delicious - cooked to perfection, and the breakfast room looks out over the bay and Lynmouth below. Mike was full of useful directions for stunning... More

We arrived to a warm welcome and a lovely cream tea. Nothing is too much trouble for this couple, Mike and Karen and their attention to detail superb. Often where we stay they seem unable to produce a poached egg how I like them, which is cooked so that the yoke is soft but not runny! This was no problem... More

We first stayed here at the beginning of July for our wedding anniversary and loved it so much that we returned again in August for another two nights. Highcliffe House is just such a relaxing place to be. We stayed in the Myrtleberry and Cleaves rooms and both were lovely, the Myrtleberry had the edge because of the French doors... More

The rooms are a good size and beautifully furnished and decorated. We stayed in room Chiselcombe. The bed was big and very comfy with great quality bedding. I... More

We booked Highcliffe House on a last minute decision to visit Devon and we couldn't have chosen anywhere better. When we stay away we normally go for hotels as opposed to B&B's however staying in such luxurious accommodation has certainly changed our mindset. We arrived mid afternoon on a Saturday and were immediately greeted by the 2 owners who showed... More

We booked at the last minute having had some good news from husband's Consultant at hospital. So, as a means of small celebration, we decided to go away for a few days. We booked on line with no experience of the hotel or the area really. We felt we had fallen on our feet! Lovely house. Lovely room. Fantastic views.... More

Highcliffe House in Lynton, Exmoor National Park, Devon, England is one of the most divine B&B's we have ever had the pleasure of staying. Everything was perfection! The rooms are large and extremely well-appointed and decorated. Karen and Mike couldn't have been better hosts - in fact it felt like we were family. Breakfasts were so well prepared that we... More
