Venue Overview

Holdsworth House, Holdsworth Road, Halifax
Every wedding is special and unique to us. At Holdsworth House we know how to turn a good wedding into a great one: we've been hosting the best weddings and parties since 1963. Yours will be the only wedding on the day and it will run like clockwork, so that you have the time of your life.



An historic Jacobean manor, Holdsworth House is hidden from view by three acres of beautiful walled gardens. You'll find it close to Halifax town centre in West Yorkshire and packed full of character with so many historic architectural features and period quirks.

The house dates from 1633 and architecturally it's a photographer’s dream whichever season you get married in. Inside there are 36 bedrooms for guests to stay over and an award-winning kitchen team ready to cook your wedding breakfast fresh, for maximum flavour and quality.

For small weddings you can hire The Ayrton Room or De Aldworth Room - originally both first floor bedrooms; The Beatles slept here in 1964. These rooms are great for up to 20 guests and you might get married in one and dine in the other. Alternatively the Hall, the Mullion Room (restaurant) or the Panel Room are beautiful for marriage ceremonies up to 20 guests.

The Stone Gazebo, beside the sunken Parterre garden, is a totally unique space for weddings in warmer months, for up to ten guests.

Up to 80 guests: The Abraham Brigg Room is a ground floor room that can host your wedding ceremony. You can get married in here and have your wedding breakfast in the Stuart Room.

Up to 120 guests: The Stuart Room is the largest suite. It has a private bar, cloakroom facilities, dance floor and adjoining Colonnade Courtyard. This is perfect for weddings up to 120 guests for a ceremony and reception meal, and up to 150 for your evening party.

Outdoor weddings are also possible for up to 120 guests May to September on the house lawns, or up to 60 guests in the quaint Colonnade Courtyard at Holdsworth House.

Well what can we say to start with due to personal reasons we had to postpone our wedding after speaking with holdsworth house they agreed to move it back a year, on the day before regarding decorations we were made to feel totally at ease with everything being put out etc and it didn’t disappoint

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 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!

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.
