Features include secluded Highcliffe Beach which has panoramic views over Christchurch Bay to the Isle of Wight and Hengistbury Head. It’s a favourite with locals for walking, paddleboarding and surfing and can be reached via a pathway zig-zagging down through the gardens of Highcliffe Castle, once home to Mr Selfridge and now the venue for varied concerts, exhibitions and fairs.
Further outstanding amenities include Highcliffe Castle Golf Club and Steamer Point Nature Reserve. In addition Highcliffe has foodie appeal thanks to the annual Highcliffe Food & Arts Festival, and a good selection of independents and eateries, such as family-owned butcher’s, beachfront cafes, Raymond Blanc’s brasserie-style gastropub The Oaks and, just up the road on the edge of the New Forest, luxurious Chewton Glen Country House Hotel.
