Highcliffe House is surrounded by the some of the most staggeringly beautiful landscapes imaginable
From Minehead in the East to Combe Martin in the West, the Exmoor National Park straddles the North Coast of Devon and Somerset. Exmoor boasts everything from a wild and rugged coastline, to vast open moors hiding lush secluded valleys and woods. It’s easy to see why so many walkers, nature lovers and those who just love the great outdoors find their heaven right here.
Highcliffe House is a gorgeous Victorian B&B situated approximately 600ft above sea level, looking out over Lynton and Lynmouth, and beyond. Just between us, we think that Highcliffe House has some of the most breath-taking sea views in Lynton.
Lynton is nestled high in the cliffs on the Exmoor coast in North Devon and surrounded by some of the most staggeringly beautiful countryside. Lynmouth and its quaint harbour sits below Lynton at the mouth of the raging Lyn Rivers.
Lynton & Lynmouth
Highcliffe House is just a few minutes walk into Lynton, where you can find a good range of pubs, cafes and restaurants. Lynton also has some great shops for gifts or walking gear, supermarkets with ATMs, a chemist and post office. Read more about shopping in Lynton here.
Lynton and Lynmouth are connected by road, the zig-zag path and the famous Victorian Cliff Railway - which is a ‘must’ when visiting Lynton. Dotted along its quaint harbour, Lynmouth has some great pubs, cafes and gift shops - a perfect way to spend an afternoon.

A Walker's Paradise
Lynton is considered to be the heart of a walker’s paradise, and it’s easy to see why when you arrive. There are gorgeous walks stretching for miles and miles, in every direction. The South West Coastal passes through both Lynton & Lynmouth along some of Britain’s most dramatic coast line. The East Lyn River winds it’s way from Lynmouth harbour through to the elven haven of Watersmeet and beyond, offering miles of cascading water and bountiful wildlife.
Just a few minutes walk from Highcliffe House is the spectacular, other-worldly Valley of Rocks. This is one of the most breathtaking walks, and with most of it being tarmac it accessible to many people.
Further along the coast you will find some of the most stunning beaches, from the compact Lee Abbey Bay to the family friendly Woolacombe Beach, or the dramatic landscape of Rockham Beach in Mortehoe.
