Introducing Holdsworth House Hotel and Restaurant wedding venue in Halifax...
This secluded four-star Jacobean manor is hidden behind walled gardens and three acres of picturesque grounds, featuring a neatly cut lawn, parterre garden and majestic trees.
Dating back to 1633, history oozes from every inch of Holdsworth House. The hotel has two dominating gables on the south-facing façade, stone mullioned windows and a heavy studded front door leading to the front terrace.
Inside, the venue provides a traditional setting that's full of character, from oak-panelled halls, beamed ceilings and open fireplaces, there's plenty to intrigue visitors. Many areas of the hotel have been renovated to offer a welcoming balance of classic style with modern facilities.
Ceremonies can be held for up to 120 guests in any room of the house, from the grand Stuart Room and the ground-floor Abraham Brigg Room to the De Aldworth Room, where John Lennon and George Harrison stayed in 1964.
For those dreaming of the great outdoors, there's the new Garden Gazebo. Vows are taken with the congregation seated on New England-style chairs on the front lawn. There's also the pretty Colonnade Courtyard, which has raised flowerbeds, an outdoor fireplace and plenty of birdsong.
Receptions are held in the Stuart Room, the main function room of the hotel, which has a dancefloor, large bar and lounge.
We love… that the restaurant has held two AA rosettes for nearly 20 consecutive years.
