This beautiful Victorian house was originally built in a conservation area as a family home and is not a purpose built B&B or hotel. The house is accessed by a steep, narrow lane from the main town of Lynton, which also has many steep slopes. There are no downstair bedrooms nor is there a lift to the upper floors. The entrance is accessed with handrails via three stone steps, a turning slab, three more shallow steps and finally two more steps through the front door. The ground floor is all on one level with the guest lounge and breakfast room. There is a staricase to the first floor with 19 steps to access four bedrooms and another staircase with 17 steps to the three top floor bedrooms. All our bedrooms are generous in proportion five have bathrooms and two have shower rooms. Please read our full Access Statement on our website. https://www.highcliffehouse.co.uk/access-statement/
