The Castle Grounds

Woodland walks, outstanding viewpoints and manicured lawns.

Please note that the beach steps are currently closed for refurbishment. Please use the Zig Zag path to gain access to the beach and the grounds of Highcliffe Castle.

There’s so much to explore! 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. First inspired by the work of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, the grounds and estate at Highcliffe Castle have seen many changes through the centuries but still retain some of Capability Brown’s original alterations.
