The most perfect wedding day

We couldn't have asked for more. Attentive from the day we enquired. Nothing was any trouble. Catered for everything including very last minute changes. Calm, chilled and extremely organised. It didn't matter which wedding planner you spoke to, everyone knew your individual needs and accommodated every request. The wedding planner on the day ensured everything went exactly to plan and on time. Each and every staff member was friendly and professional. The food was exquisite. Unlike many wedding venues, the attention to everyone's food was as if you were having a meal for two, which is a huge task when catering for 63 people all at the same time. It was the same for the evening food, which was a hot buffet catering for around 100 people. The whole day was just perfect. Beautiful location, beautiful people. (Final bill included 4 extra rooms we paid for on top of the complimentary 2 parents rooms & choice of 2 bridal suites, ribbons/sashes for dining chairs, extra work of setting up outside for our wedding ceremony etc ). We had 63 for our wedding and wedding breakfast & around 100-110 for our evening reception.

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!

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鈥檚 a beautiful venue with a function room and separate function room, so you鈥檙e 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!

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鈥檛 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鈥檛 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!
