About Holdsworth House Hotel & Restaurant

HOLDSWORTH HOUSE - SOMETHING SPECIAL, SOMEWHERE UNIQUE

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.

I stayed at the Holdsworth House Hotel after my Niece had her wedding here. Wow! It's a Beautiful venue, it offers great service, gorgeous food and lovely rooms. There is nothing negative that I can say about this place. Thank you for making the weekend so special, not just for the bride & groom, but for every wedding guest who attended.

Really Enjoyed My Stay
Venue Service

By Colleen F, on 02 Mar 2016

We were at Holdsworth House for my sons wedding and we had a really lovely time. The food was excellent and the staff really nice and very helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel as the room was lovely and clean as well and was well worth the wedding rate price.

200 Percent Fantastic
Venue Service

By calliann, on 02 Mar 2016

What a wonderful place this is. The staff are welcoming and very helpful and go out of their way to make your stay perfect. We arrived day before wedding and our room was clean and very comfortable.We could not fault it one bit. I was able to access the function room as well to set up the wedding cake I had made and again the staff extremely helpful. We attended the restaurant that evening and the food and service were superb. The surroundings there are magic. warm and welcoming. The wedding the next day was perfect from beginning to end. Its the perfect venue for a wedding or party. I cannot recommend it enough. Exceptional is the only word I can think is good enough to describe Holdsworth House Hotel

Excellent Venue, Staff and Service
Venue Service

By Darryl M, on 02 Mar 2016

Attended a wedding at this place, and until I received the invite I had never heard of it. The hotel is set off of a main road, but once your onsite you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Beautiful old style decor, and the staff here are so friendly and work damn hard. Nothing was too much for them. Food was amazing, service excellent, and all attending the wedding were commenting on what a brilliant place this is. I had a single room which was adequate for me, nice big comfortable bed, and immaculately clean. Breakfast service was quick, food delicious, and really couldn't fault. Can't recommend this place enough.

An Amazing Place
Venue Service

By Natalie H, on 02 Mar 2016

My husband and I got married here 15th August 2015. Right from our first visit to look around Holdsworth House we knew we had made the right decision. The house itself is beautiful and the gardens are outstanding. From the very start the staff have been fantastic. Claire and Zoe were always readily available throughout the whole planning process to answer any questions we had. We booked the Pain Free Package and it really was. We were able to have a tasting evening with my parents a few months before which was really helpful. The staff were incredibly helpful in assisting our friends and family in booking rooms for the night of the wedding, including family from Canada and South America. On the day itself everything went perfectly, the staff were amazing especially Tracey who is a real asset to Holdsworth, and she took charge of arranging all the decorations, checking the bridal and groom parties were all ok getting ready. She was even on hand to tidy up the groomsmen and put their buttonholes on correctly! Throughout the day it seemed as though everything just flowed, and the staff were always a step ahead of us, so we could just relax and enjoy the day. We were lucky to have glorious sunshine on the day and have some amazing photos with the gardens in full bloom. The wedding breakfast was very tasty and very generous portions. The rooms are lovely, they are not very large but this is in keeping with the hotel and are all individually designed and characterful. The bridal suite is beautiful and the rose petal turndown, champagne, chocolate dipped strawberries and box of chocolates in a lovely touch.

Our 35th anniversary vow renewal day was magical
Venue Service

By jacqui b, on 02 Mar 2016

My husband and I renewed our wedding vows at Holdsworth House Hotel. Our day was absolutely perfect and magical. The planning of our event was meticulously undertaken by Claire - Senior Wedding Coordinator. The level of professionalism we experienced through the planning process was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble. Although this was not our actual wedding we were made to feel so special. The day itself was truly amazing, we were looked after by Tracey, who was fantastic and so friendly and kind.The Abraham Brigg room and Stewart Room were both decorated beautifully and the outside areas; courtyard and gardens were perfect for taking photographs as we were also blessed with a gloriously sunny day.The menu was delicious and beautifully presented and very much enjoyed by all of our guests. We had numerous dietary requirements within our party, including a severe dairy allergy and all were adhered to perfectly. Each member of staff on duty was friendly, professional and attentive and once again our guests commented on this. It was quite a long day, going from 2pm through to beyond midnight and the day to evening celebrations were seamlessly handled by the staff. Jonny, the DJ, (whose services were included in our wedding package) was fabulous! His set was awesome and everyone had a rip roaring fun filled time dancing the night away! The Bridal Suite was beautiful with romantic rose petals on our bed and all of the guests who stayed over commented on how lovely their rooms were too. We are fairly regular visitors to Holdsworth House and we are so happy that we chose to have our special day celebrations there, it was perfect in every way and we would highly recommend that anyone planning such an event should do the same.

Truely Perfect Wedding
Venue Service

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
Venue Service

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!

SUPERB WEDDING BREAK
Venue Service

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
Venue Service

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!
