THERE IS A STORY BEHIND EVERY DETAIL AT HIGHFIELD
Every feature and ornament has been thoughtfully selected to represent either the venue’s rich heritage or our only family’s past, present and future, which we welcome guests to enjoy with us.
This is the center piece of it all, the beautiful, almost ecclesiastical, space where our lovely couples tie the knot
Its vaulted ceiling, specially-crafted cast iron Yorkshire rose chandeliers and grand stone fireplace create a chapel-style magical backdrop for this most special of occasions in everyone’s life. This room can be adorned with flowers or candles to add an unforgettable ambiance.
- THE SECRET CORBELS -
Mother Earth and the Green man feature heavily in the house's iconography.
The most secret examples are concealed in the roof rafters.
From below it is tough to see, but each of the rafters is carved in it's own unique way...
from dragons & lions to kings & queens we are not sure exactly which story they follow but the talent involved in such a hidden feature is remarkable.
-THE MINSTRELS GALLERY -
A beautiful concealed gallery looks out over the Great Hall. Once thought to be a secret spot to listen in on the whispering below, we love the framed intimacy it gives to the overall space.
Completely encapsulated in William Morris wallpaper, we love to see this used by string quartets, Feature DJ's and Choirs... a truly magical surprise.
- THE YORKSHIRE ROSE -
All around the house; in the ceilings, stairs, panelling and carved façades, are moulded symbols of Yorkshire’s pride.
The most abstract are the three modern chandeliers.
These bespoke designs have been hand made by a fabulous blacksmith and each have over 40 bulbs,
