The Highfield House in Driffield is one of Yorkshire’s finest Grade II listed buildings. Bought by the Lampard family in 2015, the building dates back to the 1700s. Since then it has served several uses from a grand house and lavish merchant’s home, to an Army base and a country club. But it is its present incarnation as an exclusive wedding and event venue that places it at the top of our list as this month’s Yorkshire wedding venue of the month.

Interior designers by trade, owners Andy and Lindsey Lampard worked tirelessly to re-open the house as an exclusive venue for luxurious weddings. With stunning interiors and bespoke furnishings (including hand painted wallpaper on the central staircase) they have created a clever mix of both the historic and modern, making The Highfield House unlike any other wedding venue in Yorkshire.
Obviously, a house this grand deserves only the best people and suppliers to collaborate with and taking on the role of house manager for the venue is wedding and event planner Ellen Davies from LND Events. In her expert hands couples are guaranteed to get the very best from their wedding day. The Highfield House also works exclusively with caterers The Hog and Apple, whose delicious menus range from 3 to 7 courses, depending on the couple’s needs.
The Highfield House is now available for a limited number of exclusive hire opportunities each year with every room in the house being licensed to hold weddings of varying party sizes, and an additional 7 acres of grounds to use as desired.
In addition to the public rooms, the house comes complete with a two-double bedroomed, self-contained apartment, offered to either the bride or groom and their bridal party on the eve of the wedding as a place to relax and unwind ahead of the big day. The room is then changed around and becomes a private oasis for the couple on their wedding night with a late checkout of 1pm the next day.
Whilst central to Driffield, The Highfield House stands in a totally private oasis. A terraced landscape that spans 7 acres of mature lawns, woodlands, waterfalls and weirs, this picturesque setting fully encloses the grand house. Should you desire to take full advantage of this then there is an option to hire an additional marquee for your event.
