Highcliffe Castle is an early-19th-century house, built to replace another within a park being eroded by the sea. The lawns and shrubbery walks remain but the famous botanic gardens are gone.
William Donthorne was employed by Lord Stuart de Rothesay to build a house on the estate his grandfather had previously sold off.
