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 meetings and events.

Holdsworth House really 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.

Holdsworth House is well known for running successful events and for its award-winning food.

There are five rooms available for events up to 120 guests, including The Gazebo.  The Stuart Room can accommodate up to 120-seated guests and 150 for an evening party. You can even run events outdoors in the beautiful Colonnade Courtyard or on the lawns or patios.

Holdsworth House has 33 ensuite bedrooms for overnight stays.

The manor is independently owned and for over 50 years and is flexible to most guests' needs.

A first-floor meeting and private dining room. Historic features including stone mullioned windows overlooking the gardens, open fireplace and crystal chandelier.

    Been here occasionally in the past, just for a meal, always great food. This time we treat ourselves to an overnight 'Festive Break', which gave us Dinner from the Festive menu, Bed and Breakfast with mulled wine on arrival. Room 7 was very clean, if a little 'tired' but the facilities were excellent, with an extrememly comfortable large bed. The stand out here though is the level of service, from attentive, enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. They care and that makes all the difference. My request before arriving for extra pillows was heard and acted upon. The restaurant, for both dinner and breakfast was beautiful and the food excellent. A really good point here is that diners are not shoe-horned in, as in many other places. No, there was lots of space between and around tables, which made for a relaxed and quieter experience. Excellent Hotel and Restaurant, well recommended.

    Beautiful, historic, 400 years old, a wealth of charm and atmosphere you rarely get in older hotels. Everything about Holdsworth House Hotel was wonderful. They hold weddings and events, but because of the location it would be hard to beat, from what i was told, they have weddings practically every week. Doggy friendly too, there is even the resident hotel cat, Eric, who is gorgeous. The food was lovely, we had sandwiches for a lunch, they were so big , i had the other half of them later which the waiters put in their fridge. Nothing was any trouble and it gives the ambience of a stress free stay. All of the staff are a credit to the hotel and i think they all enjoy working there as the happy atmosphere echoes throughout the whole hotel. All i can say is, 1963, 60 years, from when you opened your doors to accept guests to another 60 years and beyond, thank you very much.
