- A GRANDFATHERS CLOCK -
The antique grandfather clock is an heirloom from Lindsey’s side of the family, and used to be owned by her Uncle from North Cave, who was a fanatical clock restorer and had filled the rooms of his house with beautiful casement clocks.
- THE SUNNY BAROMETER -
Andy chose the barometer as a sentimental keepsake when his grandfather Ted died. “He was a great inspiration but I liked this so much because it’s always stuck on sunny, and that is a great thing to remember” he said.
- A SAINTLY STAINED GLASS-
The stained glass window is probably the oldest feature of the house and defines its character. It was designed by Temple Moor, a local church architect, and depicts the four saints of England, Scotland, England and Wales – an unusual and prestigious feature to see in a secular home.
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.
A ROOM OF HEIRLOOMS
The Reception Hall also features the original, solid oak, medieval-style door, which we have painstakingly stripped and restored.
And there is a painting of South Cave by Reginald Charles Bell, Lindsey’s great uncle, one of a number of his original artworks dotted around the house that depict the landscapes of East Yorkshire which surrounded his former home in North Cave.
These paintings were previously featured in Hull’s Ferens Art Gallery.
The seat covers and curtains in here and throughout the house were all made by Andy’s mum Phyllis and Lindsey.
