Winner - 2016 I Do Wedding Awards, Best Venue

Finalist - Yorkshire's Large Hotel of the Year 2016 and 2015

Set in beautiful, landscaped gardens near Halifax, West Yorkshire, the 380-year-old Jacobean house has long been one of Yorkshire most-loved venues for marriages, ceremonies and wedding celebrations. 

Holdsworth House really is totally unique and wonderfully photogenic, having featured on TV several times including in the BBC's BAFTA-winning Last Tango in Halifax. The four star hotel is packed with interesting and historic features, and is traditionally styled with wood panelled halls, beamed ceilings and furnished with antiques, paintings and tapestries.

We can host every part of your wedding - the marriage ceremony, the wedding breakfast, all your catering requirements and your evening party. We have had the pleasure of hosting many smaller weddings from 8 - 40 guests and same sex weddings; all party sizes, couples, families and friends are most welcome.

There are five rooms available for ceremonies from 2 to 120 guests, including The Gazebo - the smallest licensed venue in the country.  The Stuart Room can accommodate up to 120-seated guests for a wedding breakfast and 150 for an evening party. You can even marry outdoors in the beautiful Colonnade Courtyard with drinks and handmade canapés on the lawns or patios.

Holdsworth House has 38 ensuite bedrooms for overnight stays including a beautiful bridal suite, newly refurbished Executive Suites, Doubles, Twins and Interconnecting rooms. The restaurant has been awarded two red AA Rosettes for 17 consecutive years and the same restaurant chefs will be responsible for your wedding, giving your guests restaurant quality food.

The manor is independently owned and for over 50 years we have achieved an enviable reputation for friendly, efficient service.

By Sean M, on 02 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Feb 2017

Recently attended a family wedding here, the location is lovely, the bride and groom hired the whole venue including all the rooms for sole use on the day of the wedding so we had the run of the place. I found the staff very helpful and attentive, the food was lovely and rooms including the reception and ceremony area were lovely! Highly recommend.

Perfect Place for my Sisters Wedding
Venue Service

By Anna G, on 02 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Jan 2017

We visited for two days this summer as my sister got married here. They opted for one of the afternoon tea wedding packages as we were a small group and I honestly have nothing but praise for every aspect. The venue is stunning and at no time do you realise how close to Halifax you are. The staff were the right mix of professional and friendly and the food was superb. Even the drinks were amazing and all staff knew what they were serving and made recommendations. I cannot recommend this place highly enough and as an added bonus they are dog friendly!

Best Staff in the World
Venue Service

By Ricahrd E, on 02 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 28 Dec 2016

From the moment I walked into Holdsworth House I knew I wanted to be married there. The hotel is full of character and charm and was the most beautiful setting for our wedding. What really makes this place special however is the staff. Tracey was our host on the big day and she was amazing. She is such a warm hearted lady, superb at her job but so lovely you would want her as a guest if she wasn't the duty manager! The wedding plans leading up to the day were dealt with by Claire, assisted by the charming Sophie. Claire was exceptionally efficient throughout, always responding to queries quickly and I knew I could relax on the day itself because of her competence and professionalism. The reception team are so welcoming and friendly and I wanted to say a special thank you to Jade and Mikhaila and the adorable lady who checked us out. The staff here make you feel so special and share in your happiness which made our day perfect. We were able to have our dogs with us and this hotel really makes them feel welcome. I know our two had a wonderful time! The gardens here are so lovely and we loved that there is a field with horses in right next door. The food was excellent and the rooms here are lovely. I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a wedding or a short break. Thank you to everyone at Holdsworth House for surpassing all expectations on the happiest day of my life.

The run up to the wedding was so well organised by the very efficient Claire - the Pain Free package is exactly what it aims to be - and made my life on the run up to the wedding pretty stress-free. The menu tasting was incredible. The wine list is also pretty impressive… We were fortunate enough to have taken over the whole house so we could offer our guests an overnight stay in one of the beautiful rooms, of which a number were actually suites. The rooms were clean, bright, and really well furnished - certainly some of the nicest rooms I have seen in any country hotel in recent years…On the day Tracey was the main lady - and I cannot speak highly enough of her… The room was perfect for the ceremony, we had the large room (Stuart Room) due to the number of guests, and it looked amazing. Following the ceremony we spilled out into the beautiful grounds whilst the staff worked like an army to turn the room around in readiness for the reception. Tracey was once again at the fore of everything, checking order of speeches, ensuring we got pictures with the cake, and just generally providing the assurances that everything was going well…The serving of the food was so organised, with an army of waiters and waitresses delivering food to each table… And it was not just me that thought so - the number of guests who commented on the food and the service was incredible... This venue is the place that dreams are made, and the staff work so hard to make those dreams into a reality on your day. To sum it up in one word - Perfection.

Outstanding Venue and Service Second to None

By Jellyfish1967, on 02 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2016

We held our Wedding at Holdsworth on Monday 29th August. Myself and my husband have stayed at many hotels for both business and pleasure over three decades but Holdsworth House in our opinion stands head and shoulders above the rest! The staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble; their professionalism combined with their warm and relaxed nature ensured that our wedding was totally stress free. The Wedding breakfast was outstanding and unlike many venues the portions were extremely generous but also cooked to the higest standard. Breakfast with all our guests next morning was also a pure delight ...plenty of choice and food of the highest quality. The management should be very proud of such an exceptional and stunning venue with staff to match

A Brilliant Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By IanMac1960, on 02 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Aug 2016

e stayed at this hotel because it was the venue for our God-daughter's wedding. It was a splendid venue offering brilliant photo opportunities and an excellent wedding package. But what was it like as a hotel? Well I can report it is a very good hotel. We had a deluxe room which was described so because it was bigger than a standard room which our son occupied. The standard double was small and a bit cramped so go deluxe. The Manor House dates from 1673 and is a magnificent building oozing charm and character. The Manor House contains the restaurant. Breakfast was very hearty and the deal breaker for me was the pot of Marmite. The food served for the wedding was excellent indicating that the restaurant will serve great food. All in all a hidden gem which is worth visiting.

A Place that will Stay in Our Hearts Forever

By MattCorfield, on 02 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2016

Myself and my wife had our wedding reception at this Hotel, 4 years to the day tomorrow. We have just returned from our anniversary meal and the sentiment has not changed. We love it as much now as we did then. And to top it off, a little thank you from them to us for coming back year on year to celebrate our joyous day with them! What's not to love. A beautiful setting, sumptuous food, friendly staff and a truly welcoming atmosphere. Anybody visiting Halifax needs to visit this little slice of Heaven set in the heart of Calderdale. As for me and my wife, we will be frequenting again on our anniversary for many, many years to come. Thank you Holdsworth House.

We had our wedding and reception at Holdsworth House and it was absolutely fantastic. We had a small ceremony and afternoon tea for 23 people and everything was perfect. We cannot recommend the venue, food and helpful staff enough. We also stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms instead of the bridal suite and it was gorgeous. I would definitely recommend Holdsworth House whether you have a large or small wedding.

Our wedding was utter perfection
Venue Service

By Tank D, on 02 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 19 Feb 2016

On February 19th 2016 Holdsworth House played host to my wedding and the day absolutely exceeded expectations! My wife and I were made to feel like nothing was too much trouble; the wedding day coordinator was on hand to help with anything that arose and she made sure the day ran so smoothly, it was a blissful whirlwind! The staff are excellent and the you can't fault the service; everyone is friendly and accommodating and the food is to die for... The rooms themselves are spacious and comfortable and the honeymoon suite is utterly luxurious. We were actually departing very early the morning after for our honeymoon but the staff arranged to have a 5:30am breakfast delivered to our room so we didn't go without, which we felt really did go above and beyond the call of duty. Claire Nicholl was our liaison and coordinator for booking our day and she was always prompt to reply to any questions or queries we had. We booked our whole day and evening reception at Holdsworth House and have absolutely no criticism to offer! The grounds and venue themselves are beautiful and have made for some very special photos. We had a guest list of 70 and the main room was neither cramped not overly spacious. We hired a band for the evening celebrations and Holdworth House were equally as accommodating to them. Within our wedding package, we also had a DJ and would highly recommend him; all our requests were taken a few weeks in advance and we were able to completely customise our playlist. All in all my wife and I would 100% recommend Holdsworth House, whether as a wedding venue, as a very luxurious few days stay or just a nice meal out, you won't be disappointed!
