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.

I'd like to say a special thank you to the team. You were all absolutely amazing, and I can not thank you enough. Tracey was absolutely incredible and made me feel at ease when I was most anxious or had any worries for the day. She took care of it without hesitation, and the team went the extra

mile. Claire, our wedding manager, was incredible and extremely organised, keeping us in the loop at every stage of the process. It was the perfect wedding for us, and a day we will never forget! Definitely recommend this beautiful place, and the staff are a credit to the hotel.

What a relaxed & lovely wedding day my husband and I had at Holdsworth House. The service was excellent from start to finish. The professionalism and friendliness of the team was outstanding, together with their attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble. Planning our day with

Claire and her team was a pleasure and hassle free.
Our family and friends also enjoyed their day too. They were impressed by the beautiful setting, delicious food, relaxed atmosphere together with the accommodation. The rooms at Holdsworth House are excellent; lovely and clean, comfortable and well presented. I would also like to say the front of house team also made each and everyone welcome.

We knew as soon as we saw Holdsworth House it’s where we wanted to get married. The pain free package meant that I had no stress at all throughout all the planning as anything we added to the day to entertain was through choice rather than necessity. The food was brilliant. We loved having the

opportunity to go taste first and everyone commented on how fantastic it was and how full they were! The whole day was perfectly organised and so stress free that even though our speeches made things over run we didn’t even notice. The staff were wonderful and led us through the day so well ensuring we got to enjoy time as a couple not just hosts. My only small niggle would be to have clearer timings for when they wanted things by such as final guest lists and money. But it’s not worth losing a star for. The staff and hotel are wonderful and made our day so incredibly special!

Claire to you and your team i want to thank you for making our day amazing from start to finish. I believe Tracey was covering the day and she literally couldn't do enough to help. She was fantastic! Everyone commented on how lovely the food was and the decor and everything. The only grumble was the

price of the bar which was ridiculous. My friend ordered 2 gin and tonics and it was £28!!! It doesn't even cost you that to but a decent bottle at a shop. Luckily i steered clear of the gin. Apart from that everything was amazing. The best day ever. Thank you again!
