Holdsworth House is a beautiful Jacobean manor built in 1633, which has been owned and run by the Pearson family for 50 years. It's a four star hotel and historic manor standing in stunning, secluded gardens and is just three miles north of Halifax. It feels a world apart from the bustle of everyday life and is a perfect choice for accommodation, weddings and conferences. In this beautiful old house you'll find open fires, cosy lounges, fine antiques and tapestries that create a sense of history and comfort. The 38 charming bedrooms are all ensuite and have all been individually furnished. Dinner is served by candlelight in the 17th Century, oak-paneled 2 AA Rosette-winning restaurant whilst the Long Bar has a simpler brasserie style menu.

We called in to book 6 rooms for my wedding next year. Two nights stay for 6 rooms would result in a lot of money for the hotel we chose so we wanted to stay somewhere nice. We enquired at the desk only to be told because they do weddings they do not take other brides. No

Dear raychdee164, we're really sorry we couldn't accommodate you on this occasion. We have a contractual obligation to any couples who will be getting married here that they will be the only bride/groom on the premises. Sadly that does, very occasionally, mean declining some business. We really hope you manage to find somewhere for your party and that you have the most wonderful of wedding days.

We were a party of 8 and paid £97.50 per head. The first time we have been out for Christmas lunch and the staff made us feel very welcome throughout our time there. The food was good. Not huge portions if that’s what you’re into but that’s not what they’re selling themselves on
