Welcome to Highcliffe Manor

About Highcliffe Manor

The Barnes family warmly welcome you to Highcliffe Manor, our family home since 1997. The heart of Highcliffe Manor, Cliffe House, was constructed in the Late Victorian era in 1895 replacing a more humble farm property upon land once owned by the Duke of Norfolk.

The construction and architectural merit of the property was sufficiently important for it to appear in the 1894 Architect’s Gazette. Legends about the original purpose of the grand new property abound.

In the 1930s Cliffe House was at the centre of an agricultural estate and by the 1960s the property was in use as a hotel, a function it performed until its closure in the mid-1990s.

Since 1997 it has been the family home of the Barnes family when it was rescued from dereliction by Arthur and Christine. Over the last 20 years it has witnessed many happy family occasions and hosted many family events. It is our pleasure to now share our home with you and enable you to experience the comfort and pleasure of a visit to Highcliffe.

Highcliffe Manor is located at South Landing, Flamborough, and the footpath along the Heritage Coast, a place of great natural beauty with sweeping views across the North Sea and recognised as a notable spot for bird watching and sighting rare sea birds, runs alongside the boundaries of the property and is accessible through a five-bar gate just outside the main entrance gate of Highcliffe Manor.

Local wildlife are frequent visitors to the grounds. A family of deer regularly can be seen on the front lawn and surroundings. You may also see hare, foxes, pheasant and our resident barn owl. Please exercise care when driving around the property as this is the habitat of many friendly animals!

We hope that it is a place which you find warm and welcoming in which you may create fabulous memories of your own.
