Discover the Castle

From the outside looking in the Castle looks like a fully restored building that has not suffered any damage but its story is only just beginning

The History

Highcliffe Castle has been described as arguably the most important surviving house of the Romantic and Picturesque style of architecture, which flourished at the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century.

Castle Grounds

The castle sits in 14 acres of land from the manicured Parterre by the Wintergarden to woodland connecting up to Steamer Point Nature Reserve. Woodland walks, outstanding view points and excellent picnic sites make the grounds very popular.
