We stayed at Highcliffe House for a total of 3 nights as a couples weekend and to 'run out' the drop tops for what was hopefully a sunny weekend and it was just that indeed. Highcliffe House is run by Karen and Mike and it is an absolutely lovely place all round. It was extremely clean, beautifully decorated with much... More

We've stayed 3 nights at Highcliffe. Our room was incredibly clean and beautifully furnished. The proprietors are so very gracious, flexible, welcoming, and easy-going. The breakfast menu is diverse and consistently delicious (the view from the breakfast room, whilst enjoying your cooked to order food is remarkable) Their attention to detail: in-room coffee press, robes, helpful directions/guide to enjoying the...

My husband and I stayed at Highcliffe House for our first wedding anniversary and it was just perfect! The house has such an old Victorian charm to it and the views are beautiful. The breakfast was delicious, I had eggs benedict one day and pancakes the next - both wonderful. Karen and Mike were great hosts and there’s such a... More

We stayed here for just one night in April and had the most comfortable night's sleep. We stayed in the Hollerday room which is beautifully decorated - it felt like a home away from home, but better! Mike and Karen were extremely welcoming and seem to truly enjoy having people to stay, which is lovely. The tea and scones on... More

Staying in this lovely guest house certainly contributed greatly to a wonderful weeks holiday. The ambiance of the beautifully furnished rooms and the fantastic quality of service meant that we could imagine ourselves as belonging to the upper classes who famously stayed at this resort in Victorian days. The breakfast choice was very extensive and cooked to perfection. The views... More

Highcliffe is a beautiful 19th-century house with very large bedrooms looking out over the towns of Lynton and Lynmouth with stunning views of the Bristol Channel. The rooms are furnished with evocative furniture with very large, comfortable beds. Our hosts were helpful but unobtrusive. Breakfast was a standout!

It's quite an adventure finding your way up the steep, narrow road to Highcliffe house, but what an amazing view when you get there! The warmest of greetings from Michael and Karen with a cream tea in their sun-drenched breakfast room. The rooms are very comfortable and well equipped. Good choice of cooked breakfast options, expertly prepared. Plenty of useful... More
