Access Statement

Introduction

Highfield Farm is situated in the picturesque settlement of Southburn six miles from Driffield. It is surrounded by the panoramic views of the beautiful Wolds countryside, and is the perfect place to relax. Adjoining the guest accommodation is The Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School should you wish to combine your overnight stay with a cookery class or demonstration.

The farmstead, previously owned by the Hall family, was purchased in 1980 by the Rymer family (owners of JSR Farms) who used it to house livestock and grain.

Today the farmstead has been carefully renovated to provide a new home for the Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School and Highfield Farm Guest Accommodation. We are proud of the farmstead's wonderful history and the opportunity to be a part of its colourful future.

We offer nine bedroom bed and breakfast rooms.
