About Holdsworth House Hotel & Restaurant

Holdsworth Road, Holmfield, Halifax
West Yorkshire, HX2 9TG

Special offers for 2018 and 2019

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.

Holdsworth House has 38 en suite bedrooms for overnight stays including a beautiful bridal suite, first class Executive Suites, Doubles, Twins and Inter-connecting rooms. The restaurant has been awarded two red AA Rosettes for 18 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.

• Historic 4 star hotel - one of Yorkshire's top venues • Beautiful landscaped gardens for outdoor weddings • Only one wedding each day, small or large • Award-winning restaurant • Stunning Jacobean architecture, full of character • Only one wedding per day

Amazing Wedding Venue!
Venue Service

By AlbertaBob, on 17 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Nov 2018

So, after travelling 7107 KM - via car, plane, train and taxi, myself and my family arrived at Holdsworth House to attend the wedding of my brother’s daughter. As can be expected, this is an older building – but one which has soooo much charm and character. Staff are professional, considerate and helpful. Accommodations were comfortable. This was an amazing venue for the wedding, with both food and drink being outstanding. The civil ceremony was warm and professional, and the dancing afterwards even got the old folks (like me!) joining in! Enjoyed the fireplaces and lounges, which provided many opportunities to mingle with other wedding guests. It was totally worth the effort to attend and lots of great memories were made!

Excellent wedding organisation
Venue Service

By Malcolm D, on 17 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Nov 2018

We stayed here for 1 night as part of a wedding celebration. Everything was very well organised from the ceremony itself, followed by a meal and then the evening disco. The meal and breakfast were excellent and we found the staff very helpful and efficient. Room also was lovely with a nice comfortable bed. Would recommend.

Superb venue for a wedding

We were at this hotel last weekend for our daughter's wedding. All the staff could not have done any more for ourselves and the guests. We would like to mention, in particular, Tracey who organised the day for the happy couple and guests. Her arrangements seemed to go smoothly with no apparent problems. The hotel is in a lovely setting, with gardens that have been lovingly cared for. The ambience of the public rooms wraps around you as soon as step into them perfect if anyone wished for some quiet time, especially in the evening. We were in a very comfortable room, with everything we needed. We spent some time examining the old hotel invoices hung on the walls which gave an insight into businesses in the Halifax area. There was plenty of choice at breakfast. If you preferred something else not on the menu, they would do their best to meet your request. Everyone seemed to enjoy the wedding meal which was well cooked with four options for each course. The team of young waiting staff served everyone very proficiently. We thoroughly recommend this hotel as a wedding venue.

Invited to a wedding at this venue. It was stunning, beautiful old house with lots of rooms. The couple were married in the hotel, followed by a wedding breakfast, four courses went down a treat - really yummy. Photographs outside in lovely gardens - confetti - sparklers - disco - evening buffet. Staff were helpful and very friendly. Could not fault this place - recommend to anyone. Did not stay in hotel but friends did and said it was good.

Wow A wedding day to remember

We chose Holdsworth House as the venue for my daughter's recent wedding reception and it was amazing from start to finish. Planning was so easy with the help from the incredible staff here. The day exceeded our expectations by far with many fantastic comments from wedding party & guests. The venue is stunning, full of character & the gardens are breathtaking. Rooms are beautiful, food is amazing & the staff just can't do enough for you. Special thanks to Claire, Tracy & Liam & the brilliant team of staff that were all professional & so friendly too. Would definitely recommend :)

Lovely place
Venue Service

By Warren B, on 17 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2018

Me and my partner went to a wedding here on the 17th August. We traveled from Wigan. And it didn’t disappoint. It was a lovely place. Very clean. Great rooms. Friendly staff. And great food. It’s a lovely rustic building with a great outdoor area. I think me and my partner will definitely come back on our own in the future.

What a wonderful small hotel - don’t let the approach put you off - once off the main road you are in a wonderful enclave of peace, quiet and quite spectacular grounds. We had a standard double room - nothing standard about it - the bathroom was a little small but was beautifully appointed - the shower was tremendous Breakfast was good We had an evening meal here and the food was delicious

We stayed at Holdsworth House on 23 June 2018 for a friends wedding. What a beautiful place in a lovely setting. Unfortunately I had to attend A and E at Halifax Hospital and the staff were exceptionally helpful as we didn't know where we were going and had too much to drink to drive. One member of staff in particular Kimberley Somerset went out of her way after she had finished her shift to drive us first to a medical centre and then on to Halifax hospital. Nothing was too much trouble for her.

Daughters Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Joanne S, on 17 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 09 Jun 2018

My daughters wedding was held here on 4th June 2018 and what a truly amazing day it was. I cannot thank the manager Chris, Tracey and the rest of the team enough for making the whole stay and especially the wedding day, an experience we will all never forget. I would especially like to thank the chef's. The food was incredible and despite having to deal with, vegetarians, vegans, coeliacs and lactose intolerances, each course came out impeccably presented and tasted phenomenal. And if all this wasn't enough, our furry family (2 dogs) were made to feel so welcome and were able to be part of the whole day.... they even had sausages for breakfast and as many doggie biscuits a they wanted....thank you all x

There are no negatives to write of in this review. The whole place was fantastic, from the food to the rooms, every little detail seems to have been thought of. My daughter and her new husband were lucky enough to have had their wedding here (4th of June). We had a family meal from the a-la carte menu the evening before and the food was cooked to perfection, our thanks to the chefs for this and for the wedding food also, it was first rate. At this point I would like to single out a few of the hotel's splendid front of house crew for praise... Alesha, Tracy and of course Ryan (who worked the late shift) are all a credit to the hotel as is the Manager Chris. I cannot thank you all enough and all my apologies to the guys I haven't mentioned but you all had a hand in making our stay and particularly the wedding day, a truly memorable one... A thousand thanks.
