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.


WINNER: Best Town and City Venue Yorkshire 2023 in the North of England Wedding Awards.


An historic Jacobean manor, Holdsworth House is hidden from view by three acres of beautiful walled gardens and mature trees. 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 in 2023 we mark its 60th anniversary as an independent hotel.

Holdsworth House is a photographer’s dream whichever season you get married in. Inside there are 33 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.

I got married at Holdsworth House on 30th June and it was honestly the best day of my life! Getting married is not something you do on a regular basis so the morning of the wedding I was worried about how things were going to go. I didn’t need to be worried, we had a dedicated person in charge of

the day and how it was all going to go was laid out to us clearly in the morning and they ran through everything so smoothly. I didn’t have to think about a thing other than remembering to have fun and enjoy my day. A few times throughout the day me and my husband were stolen away to just have a moment together and I’m so glad they did that as on the day you’re often separate going round and making sure you’ve spoken to and thanked all the guests for coming. Every single staff member was friendly, approachable and would stop at nothing to do anything you asked. I stayed there the night before the wedding too and the staff service isn’t just on wedding days, every person I’ve met there has been lovely, friendly, helpful and just made it a pleasure to be there! I will definitely go back for meals and afternoon tea because the food is amazing!! I had such a special day and I definitely chose the correct venue, I would recommend to anyone!!!

Thank you Holdsworth for the best day ever!! Xxx

Absolutely amazing day. The organisation was faultless and all the staff both before, during and after the day, were so helpful. Would definitely recommend Holdsworth House for any wedding.

What an absolutely fantastic day. From the Friday when myself and the bridesmaids got there, the reception team were brilliant. On the wedding day, Tracy, Frank and Cameron couldn't do enough for us along with the rest of the team working. We were not rushed and we were provided with time to breathe

when needed.
Our day was absolutely beautiful and the food was delicious. We have had nothing but compliments from all of our guests, so I would like to say a massive thank you to the whole Holdsworth House Team.
We will be back to enjoy an overnight stay soon!
