Highden is one of the few places I've found where the pictures don't do the place any form of justice. The grounds and building are a breathtaking retreat, and the people are simply wonderful. Avril, Andrew and the staff are very accommodating, friendly and helpful at every turn. It's hard to find a place with a bad view. Like the other reviews say, great drinks, great food. So glad i chose this place for my getaway.
