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

Historic Holdsworth House is totally unique and wonderfully photogenic, having featured on TV numerous times. 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, May to September, in the stunning gardens or in beautiful Colonnade Courtyard, with drinks and handmade canapés on the lawns or patios.

You can choose from our small wedding packages, from 15 guests up to 120 guests. Or we can help you create your own special day to your precise bespoke needs.

Holdsworth House has 36 en suite bedrooms for overnight stays including a beautiful bridal suite, first class Executive Suites, Doubles, Twins and Inter-connecting rooms. The team of award-winning 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.

  • Beautiful landscaped gardens for outdoor weddings
  • Only one wedding each day, small or large

    We had a fantastic weekend at Holdsworth House. Claire (The Wedding Planner) was extremely helpful and the whole team ensured our experience was exactly as we wished. The rooms were lovely and the food fantastic. I would certainly recommend Holdsworth as a superb place for an intimate ceremony.

    A Fantastic Day

    Dear Claire, just a quick note from me to say a huge thank you to you and all the staff at Holdsworth House who gave us a fantastic day on 2nd January! Both Lesley and I loved the day, I had high expectations, and they were amazingly surpassed!

    Until that day, Holdsworth House had hosted the best wedding I had ever been to in the UK, and had only been beaten by one held in Segovia. I may be biased, but I think ours beat it.

    We have been inundated with messages about how good the day was. Staff, food and venue. Tracy and all the others in attendance throughout the day were outstanding!

    Thank you all very much! All our best wishes for 2020 and beyond!
    Roger & Lesley xx

    Excellent wedding venue

    Our daughter got married here recently and what a fantastic day it was. From start to finish everything ran like clockwork and was made stress free by all the staff, especially the Mistress of ceremonies who was always in control of everything. The food was superb also as was the customer service. Just excellent in every way.

    We came here last Saturday for a wedding. It’s a beautiful venue with a function room and separate function room, so you’re away from the other dining guests. Several nice seating areas with comfy armchairs and roaring fires. Good selection of drinks, especially gin! The drinks were quite expensive. Food was delicious!

    Wow...

    What a relaxed & lovely wedding day my husband and I had at Holdsworth House. The service was excellent from start to finish. The professionalism and friendliness of the team was outstanding, together with their attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble. Planning our day with Claire and her team was a pleasure and hassle free.
    Our family and friends also enjoyed their day too. They were impressed by the beautiful setting, delicious food, relaxed atmosphere together with the accommodation. The rooms at Holdsworth House are excellent; lovely and clean, comfortable and well presented. I would also like to say the front of house team also made each and everyone welcome.

    Holdsworth House Wedding

    Holdsworth House made for a perfect venue for our recent wedding, which provided for beautiful photographs both inside and out. It was an atmospheric setting for our intimate and romantic wedding day. The wedding team and the staff provided exceptional service throughout, and the vintage afternoon tea was delightful. Many thanks to all concerned, and we hope to visit again soon. Julie & Roy

    Beuatiful hotel

    We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights when attending a wedding. We stayed in a suite - room 16. The room was gorgeous, with a staircase leading to a comfortable bed. Very clean. Breakfast was tasty in the morning, with plenty of vegetarian choices.

    So happy we chose Holdsworth House for our wedding it truly was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Everyone was so accommodating and the service couldn’t have been better! From our initial viewing to the meal taster and the wedding itself, everyone went out of their way to reassure us and make us feel looked after.
    The food was fantastic and our guests were really impressed with it and the setting itself. We couldn’t fault anything, wish we could do it all over again! Thanks to Claire, Joseph, Chris, Ben and Tracey and all the other people who made our day so special!

    We knew as soon as we saw Holdsworth House it’s where we wanted to get married. The pain free package meant that I had no stress at all throughout all the planning as anything we added to the day to entertain was through choice rather than necessity. The food was brilliant. We loved having the opportunity to go taste first and everyone commented on how fantastic it was and how full they were! The whole day was perfectly organised and so stress free that even though our speeches made things over run we didn’t even notice. The staff were wonderful and led us through the day so well ensuring we got to enjoy time as a couple not just hosts. The staff and hotel are wonderful and made our day so incredibly special!

    Claire to you and your team i want to thank you for making our day amazing from start to finish. I believe Tracey was covering the day and she literally couldn't do enough to help. She was fantastic! Everyone commented on how lovely the food was and the decor and everything.

    Well what can we say to start with due to personal reasons we had to postpone our wedding after speaking with holdsworth house they agreed to move it back a year, on the day before regarding decorations we were made to feel totally at ease with everything being put out etc and it didn’t disappoint the room looked beautiful and the service during the wedding breakfast from Tracey and her team was exceptional they couldn’t do enough for us along with the gorgeous gardens and the house itself I would recommend getting married here to anyone looking for a venue that has it all
    Thank you

    We recently got married at this beautiful venue & had the best wedding day we could have wished for. We cannot sing this venues praises high enough.

    We fell in love with Holdsworth House as soon as we saw it. The whole hotel has so much character & the grounds are stunning!! From our first meeting with them to book our wedding we knew we’d booked the perfect venue. All the staff are lovely & professional & nothing is too much trouble to make sure the most important day of our lives went without a hitch!

    They worked tirelessly on the day to make our wedding day so special. It was absolutely perfect from start to finish & even the weather was kind & the sun shone all day so we were able to get married in the beautiful courtyard & make the most of the beautiful grounds.

    All our guests thoroughly enjoyed it too & absolutely loved the hotel.

    The food for our wedding breakfast was delicious. too & the waiters/waitresses did a brilliant job too.

    If you want the perfect wedding look no further than Holdsworth House!
