  • I've been to Highcliffe Castle before so I knew there was a cafe by the castle. When I was in the area again in November with my family we decided to stop for afternoon tea and it didn't disappoint. I...  more »

  • Lots of history for such a small place. Not much to see. Only has 3 rooms to view but for a few £ one can't complain. Staff were very friendly and tried to make it worth ones while. Overall it was worth a visit. The beach is worth going down to as it is a lot more peaceful than other places along that stretch of coast.
  • Nice grounds but don't bother paying to go inside. We had a friendly fellow talk to us about the place for 10 minutes but i couldn't hear half of what he said. When we escaped him we found one half preserved room to look at and a wedding room. Petty poor value. Best look at the grounds for free. One other word of advice. Bring change for the parking. £2.30 for 2 hours cost is £3.
  • Lovely old building and garden. A perfect place for a picnic and to listen to a band. There are bands playing on most Sunday afternoons in the summer. Saturdays are used for weddings and private functions. There is a cafe that does tea, cake and ice cream. It's on top of the cliff, so perfect as the focus of an afternoon stroll. The car park is small and expensive but you can find alternatives if you're prepared for a walk.
  • Lovely grounds in and around castle. Great walk down cliff stairs to the beach, also there is a tree lined walk which joins to steamer point
  • Excellent place to visit when it rains as there are crafts for children. Excellent tea rooms. Well worth a visit
