About Highfield Farm
Highfield Farm dates back to the early 1920’s and was originally a sheep and cattle farm. In 1923, Highfield Farm was purchased by John Ben Snow, an American millionaire and Director of Woolworths, he was one of a handful of managers to come to the UK to spearhead the ‘Woolies’ invasion of Britain. During his time here (between the two wars) It appears he put Highfield Farm on the map. Whilst here he discovered he had a passion for horses and developed a polo and racing stable (the Polo viewing tower still remains) Highfield Farm became a weekend social centre, where he entertained company executives, hosting lavish parties with American ex-pats and the cream of high society.
He sold the estate at the beginning of World War Two when he moved back to the States. During the war, Highfield Farm was used for Army training and then sold as a private dwelling to a local man. In 2002 Highfield Farm was sold to developers to convert into the charming homes we see today.
