Special offers for 2020

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 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.

By Alison Wild, on 13 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 09 Oct 2019

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!

We stopped in this hotel for a friends wedding reception. I have to say this is an exceptional hotel full of character. All the staff that we encountered were very professional in their approach to service. The breakfast in the morning was not the biggest but I have to say the quality was second to none. For an old building the cleanliness is very good. All in all we had a very enjoyable stay.

A special day

By Gareth Duffield, on 13 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 22 Sep 2019

To all staff at Holdsworth House Sunday the 22nd September 2019 was such a special day for us. From the day we booked the wedding at your fabulous venue to the taster wedding breakfast and all arrangements in the weeks leading up to the day itself all staff we interacted with were outstanding in making sure our wedding was special not only for us but for all our guests. Special thanks go to Claire, Chris and to Liam for looking after us so we'll throughout the day itself. We would have no hesitation in recommending your team and venue to anyone and look forward to returning for our 1st anniversary meal. With grateful thanks Gareth and Hilary Duffield

Overnight stay for a wedding
Venue Service

By KazG999, on 09 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Sep 2019

An absolutely beautiful venue for my son’s wedding - characterful building with gorgeous grounds. We were blessed with fabulous weather so the ceremony was moved to the lawned area - perfect! Everything ran smoothly and the staff were friendly and attentive. Our overnight room was quaint with a sloping roof and velux window, the bed was comfortable. The bathroom more than adequate with a modern shower cubicle, the shower having good pressure. Overall this was a delightful wedding and overnight stay. Only a couple of minor niggles that didn’t detract from our visit - the cooked breakfast wasn’t as good as we were expecting (the scrambled eggs in particular looked very undercooked and sloppy) and one or two areas in the hotel could do with a little TLC and refurbishment. A morning stroll in the gardens was lovely, and in company with the resident cat, Eric.

amazing and memorable
Venue Service

By Grace EscosiaJasiewicz, on 13 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 19 Sep 2019

We had an amazing and memorable wedding celebration at Holdsworth House. Honestly, we have only high praises for the Holdsworth House Team for making sure that everything was perfect on our wedding day. They were responsive to all our queries made by emails and (some) phone calls, and they made sure that our requests were accommodated. They were incredibly efficient! I am especially grateful to Chris for making sure everything was perfect during the wedding ceremony and reception. I did not feel stressed out at all because I knew that Chris was handling everything for us and everything was under control. I fell in love with the venue the first time I visited it with my husband back in March 2019. Even though we only had less than 6 months to prepare for the wedding, I am grateful that all the wedding preparations went smoothly. Holdsworth House is a very beautiful hotel (17th century manor house!) and has excellent service! The food was superb. I actually had a hard time choosing the dishes for our 3-course menu during the food tasting because everything was really good! The wedding suite was also a delightful surprise to us - we had champagne, chocolates, flower petals (basically, the works!) and a lovely breakfast delivered to our room the next day. Thank you so much to everyone at Holdsworth House who made our wedding celebration unforgettable! Our family and friends were raving about it for weeks after!

Fabulous wedding day
Venue Service

By Elizt8, on 09 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 04 Sep 2019

I am a little late in writing this review. We got married here in March 2019, and it was just the most fab day. From waking up and having our breakfast of choice in the quaint dining area, to leaving the next day the staff could not do enough to make our whole day special. We were blessed with the most beautiful weather, the sun shone all day long, which enabled our guests to have after ceremony drinks outside whilst mingling. The food we chose was perfect and we where able to choose this prior to the event, we have vegan and vegetarian guests and all were catered for as well as a couple of younger children. We were allowed to decorate the venue to our taste and the room looked beautiful

Amazing venue
Venue Service

By Sarah Potter, on 13 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 09 Aug 2019

This venue is amazing whether you have your ceremony inside or out. We were lucky enough to have great weather and we had a small intimate ceremony on the front lawn under the gazebo. I cannot fault the staff from the moment we looked round, right up to the day we felt looked after and nothing was too much trouble. The team there are fantastic. I would definitely recommend this lovely venue to anyone, they cater for weddings big or small! It's just a shame the day goes so quickly, I wish I could do it all again it was perfect.

Wonderful hotel & Wedding venue
Venue Service

By 295malcolmb, on 09 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2019

We were looking for a venue for our Wedding that was comfortable looking after a small party of only 10 people. Holdsworth House delivered in every way possible right from our first meeting with them. The staff at the Hotel truly understand about hospitality and customer care. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Everything was asked for was always possible and doable. Such a refreshing change in attitude. The fact we were only a small party made no difference to the team. We held our ceremony in the Hotel's 'Stone Gazebo' located in the corner of their fantastic garden. Don't make the mistake of thinking of a garden gazebo! The Hotel is set in its own grounds and the gardens to the rear are lovely particularly on a sunny day. There is so much history around the Hotel you can while away your time just reading some of the back history of the place! It is well worth paying the extra to have one of the suites as they offer much more space for a small extra cost per day. The food on our Wedding day and at breakfast each morning was superb and freshly prepared. Compliments to the catering team. If you have been watching Gentleman Jack on BBC then there is the added bonus of Shibden Hall, the home of Anne Lister, being only five miles down the road. Well worth a visit as well. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our Wedding and stay at Holdsworth House and would highly recommend the Hotel and staff to anyone. PS: Don't forget to say hello to Eric the Hotel cat!

This is a lovely place to get married. We came for a friend’s wedding and it was faultless, the service ran smoothly and the food was lovely. We didn’t stay over as we live local however we had a peak in a courtyard room and it looked lovely.

We got married here in march, i can honestly say we had the most perfect day & we would not have changed anything! In the run up to the wedding the staff could not have been more helpful, in particular Claire & Joseph. On the day the food was amazing & so many of our guests have commented on how nice it was! Tracey the master of ceremonies i thought was extremely nice & helpful. We had exclusive use & anybody looking to get married here i would definitely recommend paying the extra for this if you have it in your budget as this i think really made our day. We had the whole hotel to ourselves, most of our guests stayed overnight & we all had breakfast together in the morning which was another highlight! Thank you to all the staff who worked that day & made our day perfect!
