Stay at Highcliffe House, a North Devon guest house from where you can experience the rugged landscape of Exmoor. The stunning sea views from this exceptional Victorian house are unique and will take your breath away. The history of the house from when it was initially built as a Gentleman’s residence, to being commandeered by the military in WWII and now as Devon accommodation is all about the views.
The national railway network was expanded to bring families to the area and is still in evidence today. A restored steam line still runs from Minehead to just short of Taunton at Bishops Lydiard offering holidaymakers a taste of the romance of steam travel. More recently, the narrow gauge line, which originally ran from Barnstaple to Lynton has been re-installed at Woody Bay Station and draws visitors from all over the world.
North Devon has miles of nature reserves with sandy beaches, a dramatic coastline with the highest sea cliffs in England and the magnificence of Exmoor with rugged moors and wooded river valleys. The choice of Exmoor accommodation is varied with farmhouse B&Bs where you get close to the animals, romantic cottages where you can hide away from the world and small towns and villages with a wide range of B&Bs, hotels, pubs and restaurants with great local food.
