The area also boasts some the best climactic conditions in the UK. Highcliffe Castle was built between 1831 and 1835 and is a Grade I listed building built by Lord Stuart de Rothesay. The Castle was built on the site previously occupied by a Georgian mansion High Cliff, with grounds laid out by Capability Brown.
