Address Holmfield

Category Country/Manor House
Down a tree-lined drive in Halifax, West Yorkshire sits the impressive Jacobean manor Holdsworth House – one of Yorkshire’s top wedding venues.

Decorated with climbing clematis and steeped in history, the site dates back on records as far as 1272. The stone house was erected around 1633 and years thereafter it even became a hotel worthy of bedding The Beatles. In 2013 Holdsworth House was featured in the BBC’s BAFTA-winning Last Tango in Halifax as the setting for romantic weekend escapes as well as Alan and Celia’s wedding.

Two weeping ash trees, planted in 1821, frame and complete the pretty and quintessentially English picture set in 2.5 acres of groomed lands, complete with a sunken Parterre garden and stone gazebo, rumoured to have once been a chapel. Inside the award-winning manor you will find many original features, wood panelling, warm open fires, antique furniture and mullioned windows.

Holdsworth House remains privately owned and has retained its character and charm; it is one of only a few Yorkshire venues licensed for indoor and outdoor ceremonies and marriages. Imagine a candlelit courtyard with an outdoor fireplace for toasting marshmallows or serving up barbeque suppers Holdsworth House offers weddings all year round iand makes a stuning backdrop to wedding photographs all year round.

The food and service match the perfect wedding setting. The kitchen brigade have won two AA Rosettes for 14 consecutive years for the exceptional fresh food and the service has won annual Tripadvisor Certificates of Excellence. What’s more the hotel is recommended by Jamie Oliver on his Best of British Food app.

Marriages and wedding receptions from 8 to 120 guests can be held here in a number of beautiful rooms. Exclusive use is available too. There are 39 bedrooms and wedding guests benefit from a special overnight rate.

Just three miles to the North of Halifax, the house is suitably located to reach many of West Yorkshire’s finest destinations.
