Holdsworth House is an historic, award-winning manor set in beautiful gardens near Halifax. The 380 years old Jacobean house has long been one of Yorkshire's top venues for marriages, civil partnership ceremonies and wedding party celebrations.

Holdsworth House really is totally unique. With many interesting and historic features, it makes the perfect backdrop to your wedding that your guests will remember for many years.

We can host every part of your wedding - the marriage or civil partnership ceremony, the wedding breakfast, all your catering requirements and your evening party.

There are five rooms available for ceremonies from 2 to 120 guests. This includes the Gazebo, which is the smallest licensed venue in the country and the Stuart Room that can accommodate up to 120 seated guests, more for evening buffets. You can even marry outdoors in the beautiful Colonnade Courtyard. We have also had the pleasure of hosting many smaller weddings from 8 - 40 guests and we welcome couples wishing to host their civil partnership here. 

Holdsworth House has 39 ensuite bedrooms including a beautiful bridal suite, and many feature rooms perfect for your party guests. The manor is independently owned and for over 50 years we have achieved an enviable reputation for friendly, efficient service.

Truely Perfect Wedding

By Flo012, on 03 Aug 2015

An absolutely faultless wedding. I stayed here the night before our wedding in one of the suits with my maid of honour and we all got ready there the next morning. All the staff were extremely helpful and we had a lovely breakfast platter. We had a perfect wedding the service and management was faultless. Tracy was very efficient at managing everyone and everything during the day within a rather tight schedule. The food was superb throughout the day. We has Sonnet looking after us in the evening and what a great job he did too very polite and efficient. We were lucky enough to stay in the bridal suite for 2 nights which was lovely we were greeted by champagne and strawberries in chocolate. A throughly enjoyable day! Unbeatable! We will be back!

Brothers Wedding

By Redheidijo, on 03 Aug 2015

I've stayed here twice, once for my brothers wedding and also for my Dad's a few years ago. It goes to show how lovely this place is. Fabulous countryside location, intimate, historical venue and extremely comfortable rooms. And food (a big thing for me, love my food) was delicious even when catering for a crowd. Perfect!


By JWRHudds, on 03 Aug 2015

My wife and I were very fortunate to attend a close family wedding at this beautiful hotel. The service we received from all hotel staff was exceptional, the suite we stayed in was very comfortable, the food we ate was delicious and the hotel grounds are lovingly looked after and offer a beautiful back drop to the historic main hotel building. Everyone said they can't wait to find an excuse to go back to Holdsworth House. Thank you to everyone at this hotel, you are all doing an amazing job!!

Amazing Staff

By BarneyNearSheffield, on 30 Dec 2014

My son has just got married at Holdsworth House Hotel, in Halifax and it was an absolute amazing experience! We were a little apprehensive before, thinking that the venue was a little 'old fashioned' initially. Our fears were not realised at all. The ceremony and reception were fantastic, from the intimate room where my son and his future wife were married to the luxurious reception room, the venue was just perfect! I would like to think Tracey for her expert organisational skills; she made the event run extremely smoothly. Thank you Tracey! The food was outstanding, from the ham hock and Turkey pate to the hot chocolate fondue and ice cream, everything was just right! I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding. Well done Holdsworth House Hotel staff! The photographs in the garden were really lovely, even with the cold climate and the slight rain shower. This was made much better with the warming 'real fires' in the rooms and courtyard! A really big thank you! Joy and Steve, the groom's parents!

Daughters Christmas Wedding

By Poppy4, on 30 Dec 2014

Our daughter was married here on Sat 20th Dec. From start to finish the staff were wonderful and everything was spot on. Even when the guitarist let us down at the last minute they sorted the music out & no one was any the wiser. The food was wonderful & accommodation lovely. Really can't praise everyone enough, they work so hard and deserve all the wonderful comments on trip advisor. Well done to all of you.

Wonderful Hotel

By TWEmmers, on 03 Feb 2014

We recently held my daughter's wedding at this wonderful hotel. The date was booked well in advance, a winter wedding package during the week of new year. The Christmas decorations were still up and were tasteful and classy adding to our winter wonderland theme. Claire, the wedding and events manager was always on hand throughout the build up helping with the planning and answering any queries, so a huge thank you to her. We could not fault the actual wedding day, the room for the service was decorated beautifully and the Stuart room for the wedding breakfast and evening reception was just the right size for the top table and 7 large round tables for the guests, the staff were attentive throughout the day, friendly and cheerful, the food lovely, Matthew our designated master of ceremonies did a fantastic job ensuring everything went to plan and guided us all through the day in a professional manner, what a gem along with the team.

Wonderful venue and people

By Alex A, on 16 Dec 2013

We have just had our wedding at Holdsworth House and boy they throw a good party! Wonderful staff, can't do enough for you, stunning food impeccably served, and a lovely setting. We were a party of 110 and they managed this wonderfully. Tracey was brilliant. We choose this place for our wedding over a year ago and have visited many times in that year. Every time they have been warm and the food great. Everyone of our guests were so happy.

Our Perfect Wedding

By vaso99, on 16 Dec 2013

After months of planning, we celebrated our wedding on Thursday 8th August 2013. From on arrival on the Wednesday afternoon to check out on the Friday morning, the whole experience was faultless. All the staff could not do enough to help us. The day itself started with a hearty breakfast which was delicious. Tracey our wedding coordinator for the day was amazing and got everything done for us. The hall for the ceremony looked fantastic as did the Mullion room where we were dining afterwards. The ceremony went without a hitch and perfectly orchestrated by Tracey who made us feel relaxed and even getting us water at the last minute to calm any nerves that may have been there. The drinks reception was in the garden and was perfect, canapés, champagne and brilliant weather. Our wedding breakfast was faultless with all our guests saying how good the food was. The whole day was completely wonderful with all our friends and family commenting on how beautiful everything was and how fantastic the staff were. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the reception staff who helped us out of a few tricky situations with the help of superglue and blutack!!!!! Simon and his amazing team in the kitchen, the food was delicious. Kat and the restaurant and bar staff, faultless service throughout. All the housekeeping and grounds staff, everywhere was so clean and well kept. Thanks to Claire for her help in planning and organising the whole event. Finally Tracey.............. What can we say?? A very BIG thank you, you were amazing and thanks to you our wedding day was perfect. We would have no hesitation in recommending Holdsworth House for their wedding.

Perfect Day

By GI29, on 16 Dec 2013

We had our wedding here on 16th August and the day was just perfect! From our arrival the day before the wedding, right through to breakfast the morning after. We have to say a big thank you to all of the staff who were so kind and helped keep us on track throughout the day! Everything ran so smoothly because of them. The food was superb and this was commented on by many of the guests. I cannot recommend Holdsworth House highly enough! Thank you again for such a wonderful day!
