The Highfield House is one of Yorkshire’s finest Grade II listed buildings. The striking Elizabethan styled Arts and crafts home has a rich and varied history which dates to the early 1800’s. It has served under many guises from a grand house to a lavish merchant’s home, an Army base to a memorable country club.
It has housed philanthropists, visionaries, villains and Aristocrats.
Whilst central to Driffield, The Highfield House stands in a totally private oasis.
A terraced landscape that spans seven acres of mature lawns, woodlands, waterfalls and weirs, this picturesque setting fully encloses the grand house with a prize winning and protected arboretum of specimen trees soaring high and over 250 years old.

It has served under many guises from a windmill to a lavish country home, an Army base to a memorable country club. It has housed philanthropists, visionaries, villains and Aristocrats.
It has grown and shrunk, been re-imagined, remodelled and reformed.

LAWNS, WATERFALLS & WEIRS
