The breakfast was very high quality with a great choice. The room and... More

My partner and I stayed at Highfield Bed and Breakfast a year ago and I've been meaning to review them ever since because we had such a wonderful time.

An immaculate bed and breakfast, with all you need for a short stay. Delicous breakfast served by friendly hosts and a comfortable warm room. Very convenient for River Cottage Canteen which is just a 10 minute walk away. Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast are close by.
