Wedding venues in Yorkshire don’t come better than Holdsworth House. The historic Jacobean manor close to Halifax is an award-winning four star hotel set in beautiful landscaped gardens.  If you’re looking for an historic wedding venue Holdsworth House dates back to 1633 and has been an independent, family-owned hotel for over 50 years. It has long been considered the best place to get married in the area. With a selection of ready-made packages or the flexibility to build your own, as well as some late deals, you might be surprised by competitive rates on offer.


Our motto is “Something Special, Somewhere Unique” because we aim to go above and beyond your expectations, putting customer service and enjoyment of your special day at the heart of everything we do. There are so many interesting, historic features that Holdsworth House really does make an idyllic backdrop for a wedding, civil marriage or partnership ceremony. Quite simply there is no where else like it.
