Looking for romance and drama? The new Kipscombe at Highcliffe House really delivers.
– a truly 5-star and Award Winning B&B in North Devon.
Kipscombe is one of our largest rooms.
It has stunning views from the highest aspect of Highcliffe House. From its front facing window you can see uninterrupted views of Lynton and the North Devon, Exmoor coast. On the clearest days you can see the shores of South Wales.
Kipscombe was always a lovely room, but rather tired. As a romantic coastal getaway, Highcliffe House caters towards couples who are looking to escape, walk and explore. Kipscombe needed to look romantic and seductive allowing it to stand proudly alongside the rest of Highcliffe’s rooms.
Gorgeous wall coverings
We lavishly decorated the walls with Zophany’s Brocatello wallpaper. Originally inspired by a 19th century brocade woven with metallic yarns and embellished with embroidery. Printed with light reflective inks and subtle textures gives the paper an extra dimension.
What can we say? It’s probably the most dramatic bed ever seen in our B&B. It’s a stunning reproduction, super king size Versailles bed with carved birds and scrolls. They carved the bed from solid mahogany and covered it in real gold leaf making it a really special bed.
The bed has luxurious gold and truffle cushions and throw by Laura Ashley. We dressed the windows with pure silk curtains and blackout blinds. Soft bedside lighting is from the Ralph Lauren Home collection.
