Watersmeet – National Trust

Watersmeet and lodge.

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 used to be a fishing lodge, originally 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.

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.

The TV show “Julia Bradbury’s Britains Best Walks” featured Watersmeet in February 2017.  View more details on the ITV Hub here.
