Highcliffe Castle is just 3 miles from Christchurch - not only a beautiful and historical building, but the surrounding grounds are perfect for a relaxing stroll or picnic on the lawns. There is also direct access to both a wonderful sandy beach and the unspoilt nature reserve of nearby Steamer Point. You will find the The Castle Kitchen Tearooms within the grounds, which provides hot and cold drinks along with delicious snacks and homemade cakes. .
