Arrived safely with the directions given. We were early but were obligingly allowed to leave our car and luggage. We did some local walks along the coast path which was the main aim of our break. We ate out in some very good local restaurants. The situation and ambiance of this hotel were excellent. The views are very good but you certainly need to be fairly fit if you plan to walk in this area, many hills- which is of course the attraction. Taxi transfers from Lynton reasonably priced.

Well situated (if you are ok with small hills) in Lynton. You can easily get to Lynmouth via cliff railway, zig zag walkway or by road which takes a couple of minutes down the hill.

Brekky was top notch! Read more
The room we stayed in (Countisburn) was beautiful. Like the rest of the house, it strikes the perfect balance between embracing the modern and retaining the traditional.

Highcliffe House provided a superb base for our short break in Lynton & Lymouth . The accomodation was of the highest standard and we were made to feel competley at ease in the property. The room, the service, the food, the whole house were excellent and to top everything off the veiws from our room of the coastline were second to none. Read more

The guesthouse is situated atop a high hill in Lynton and gives panoramic views of Lynton/Lynemouth and the surrounding coast. Our room was large and well equipped with a v.large double bed. However, the shower room was far too small and claustrophobic.
The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and the breakfasts were v.good. Guest facilities (other than our en-suite!) were v.good.
No hesitation in recommending this hotel Read more
I arranged our stay for my husband's birthday and he loved the hotel. We both thought the room, Summerhouse, had the best view of any we have stayed in! In addition, we had no complaints about the food, it was lovely and both the owners were lovely and very helpful too. The communal areas were very nice. It was good to have that extra bit of space to relax outside the room itself. Read more
