What Makes Us Unique
In a nutshell
Holdsworth House is a stunning 400-year-old manor in three acres of gardens. It is a leading wedding venue in West Yorkshire, has over 60 years of experience, 32 bedrooms and award-winning food.The hotel is beautiful and independently owned. It offers historic architecture and delightful gardens, but it is our highly experienced team that really stands out; we have literally hundreds of reviews from very happy couples. We've hosted weddings for over 60 years and our wedding team has worked here an average of 15 years each, so you get the personal touch from people that really care and you can trust us fully to turn your wedding into the most incredible day. Set the heart of West Yorkshire, the dog-friendly hotel is equidistant between Leeds and Manchester and hidden from the (quiet) road. It is perfect for exclusive weddings that require privacy, professionalism and luxury. A unique, historic wedding venue, Holdsworth House has so many truly stunning backdrops. Many photographers and influencers use the hotel for their shoots because of its wonderful stone mullion windows, traditional decor and features. There's simply nowhere else like it. The hotel is fully licensed for wedding ceremonies indoors or out. There are two bars licensed for the sale of alcohol. All wedding food is prepped and cooked onsite, fresh by chefs who also cook for our award-winning restaurant. If you want a big wedding for 120 guests (150 evening) or a small wedding for 10 you can choose an all-inclusive package or a bespoke option. There are no hidden costs or price rises once you book. Our one-wedding promise means yours will be the only wedding on the day.
Holdsworth House has an award-winning restaurant. It will be the same restaurant chefs cooking your canapes, wedding breakfast, evening buffet or banquet. If you book Holdsworth House for your wedding, you will be invited to a complimentary menu tasting so you can see, as well as taste, your chosen dishes so you know exactly what to expect on the day. We understand that food is a critical part of your day, and so we only operate a fresh banqueting service for the ultimate flavour and quality (we do not cook and reheat wedding dishes). In addition, we have an extensive wine list curated by a Master of Wine, with a brilliant selection of New and Old World wines and vintages. Our bar stocks over 100 gins – many of them local to Yorkshire. We work closely with a local artisan IPA brewer to supply our superb pale ale.
Exclusive use venue hire available. Regardless of the size of your wedding, we only host one per day. You can add Exclusive Use, which provides you with complete private access to the restaurant and 32 bedrooms (B&B basis) from £6000.
Holdsworth House can accommodate your guests in 32 double or twin rooms. Whether they are travelling from overseas, from a long car journey or from round the corner; Holdsworth House is easy to find and has parking onsite for 60 cars.
