Watersmeet – National Trust
Guests of Highcliffe House love the outstanding beauty and tranquillity of Watersmeet. Enjoy the majesty of its cascading waters and surrounding flora and fauna – it’s really quite magical.
The house, once a fishing lodge, was built in 1852. It is now owned by the National Trust. These days it is used as an information centre, tea room and shop by the National Trust.
Watersmeet: 40 Miles of Walks
The house is a great starting point for nearly 40 miles (65 km) of walks meandering through woodland, past streams and waterfalls.
The icy cold cascading waters rage loudly as they tumble towards Lynmouth from the house, making a beautiful walk. Alternatively the walk from the house to Rockford is just as beautiful meandering through leafy woodland.
It was featured in February 2017 on Julia Bradbury’s Britain’s Best Walks. View the episode on the ITV Hub here.
