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 grounds for outdoor weddings • Only one wedding each day, small or large • 2 AA Rosette-winning restaurant • Stunning Jacobean architecture, full of character - a photographer's dream • TripAdvisor winners for outstanding customer service

For a friends wedding
Venue Service

By RJH1992, on 17 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Aug 2018

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.

Simply Charming
Venue Service

By CTontour, on 05 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018

Just returned from a 2 night stay for a wedding. The photo's of the hotel are accurate. It is as lovely as it looks - inside and out. A maze of rooms, entrances and exits to the garden - which is beautifully kept if not as large as you might think from the photos, but beautifully kept up. If this style of hotel and location are 'your thing' then you will not be disappointed. Not far from the city center (8mins by taxi), but mostly surrounded by 'green'! Rooms are very clean, not large, but beds very comfortable with nice quality linen. Relaxed atmosphere with good friendly and helpful service. Lovely romantic wedding venue. They also take care to ensure other guests in the hotel have their privacy from the weddings taking place there. Breakfast was to order and good. The evening meal is well cooked and the food tasted very fresh and home made. Delightful.

Snowy Wedding
Venue Service

By tigerman2020, on 05 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 19 Mar 2018

It was a very snowy night, in fact blizzard conditions in Halifax for a wedding party, at least 8 guests feared being snowed in at the hotel, Jake the manager arranged alternate accommodation - and actually went beyond the call of duty to run some guests to either their hotel, or alternate accommodation in his own car, as all taxis had ceased running and even UBER drivers!! I have to commend Jake for his altruism on this night, he was fantastic. We had a fabulous time here for the wedding, the whole team ensured a smooth running of the wedding, and cleared the car-park to allow guests out on the Sunday morning.

Winter wedding
Venue Service

By Katharine A, on 05 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Feb 2018

We had a wonderful time. All the staff at Holdsworth House were so professional and friendly - it was the perfect venue for our winter wedding! We planned the wedding from Australia without any stress thanks to the team co-ordinated by Claire Nicholl who was swift at replying to emails and always happy to guide us. The food was a highlight; from canapés to our main meal and breakfast the following day standards were high. Thank you - we'll be sure to visit in future.

Step daughters wedding
Venue Service

By grahamphillips692, on 05 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Feb 2018

We stayed as 2 family's either 1 night or 2 nights on the hotel wedding package, we ate in a private room the night before the wedding food was fabulous service was great. The wedding its self went extremely well with our own planner could not have been more helpful, all meals, dinner and breakfast were of a very high standard as was the service. the rooms we stayed in had recently been re-furbished and had been done to a very high standard. LL the staff could not have been more helpful, thanks everybody

We booked a Winter Ball with drinks reception & 3 course meal for 65 to celebrate our daughters overseas wedding. The venue is fantastic the food was superb & staff polite & helpful. We booked out most of the rooms for family & friends & all enjoyed a great nights sleep in luxurious rooms followed by a freshly cooked breakfast the following morning.I can highly recommend Holdsworth House.

The venue is amazing. It has character and charm. The food is excellent and fully deserves its rating. The wedding day was amazing. Ran beautifully and all staff involved made it a truly special day. Especial thanks to Tracy who was a calm, organised and approachable and made the day. We would thoroughly recommend this for a wedding venue.

fantastic Getaway
Venue Service

By Mel P, on 20 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 18 Nov 2017

We attended a wedding for our niece last weekend and this was our first visit to this venue. What a fantastic place. Rooms were brilliant, food outstanding and staff so friendly they couldn't do enough for you. The location of the hotel is brilliant and the history within its walls is outstanding along with beautiful grounds.
