Bed & Breakfast in Lynton & Lynmouth
Highcliffe House stands in its elevated position overlooking the twin towns of Lynton & Lynmouth. It was named Little Switzerland by the Victorians in the 1880s. Originally a small port the town grew to its current proportions during the late Victorian era. It became a desirable tourist resort and the place to have a summer residence to escape from London. Our Lynton B&B has a prominent position in the town and gained status as very desirable accommodation with its commanding panoramic sea views across the Bristol Channel.
During the 1930’s the house became a sanctuary for Christian families until purchased by a local family in the 1960s who turned it into a hotel, then a B&B. The Highcliffe House you see today still has an element of sanctuary. It offers many people an escape from the pressures of city life. Where better to escape to than the glorious scenery of Exmoor?
