General Manager, Joseph
Football fanatic, family man and one cool cucumber. Hospitality and restaurant management runs in the blood.
Wedding & Events Manager, Claire
A super-dedicated, fount of all knowledge on weddings. Dog-loving, grand design expert with an unbelieveable memory!
Head Chef, Simon
Second generation trained butcher, coffee and tea connoisseur. Our fitness and health guru is affectionately known in-house as Muscles.
Front Office Manager, Kay
Our official sports mum of the year. When not cheering on the family she's keeping our team in order. Rules the roost with a heart of gold and a wonderful telephone voice.
Breakfast Supervisor, Audrey
Scottish-born beacon of smiles with a giggle that brightens guests' mornings. Loves her family time and Hebden Bridge but hates being photographed - gotcha Audrey! (Winner- Employee of the Year 2017)
HR & Accounts Manager, Rachel
Number-crunching, travel-loving fan of fine cheeses. Not much gets past Rachel, especially unauthorised invoices!
Deputy General Manager, Chris
Our Mr. Detail is always around to lend a hand, Chris has an impressive knowledge of wine and gin — go on, quiz him!
Head Housekeeper, Julie
Bright and breezy, just like her freshly laundered linen. Watch out Chef, Julie's also an ace in the kitchen!
Food & Beverage Manager, Jake
A real social butterfly. When he's not walking Puddles - his staffy - you'll find Jake down the Holdsworth House wine cellar or playing the ukulele.
Weddings Master of Ceremonies, Tracey
From housekeeping and kitchen to weddings and events, Tracey has loyally served Holdsworth House for almost thirty years.
When he's not on the golf course, John is tending to the beds. Housekeeper Julie told him to take his muddy boots off first...
Maintenance Man, Charles
He loves his three Rs - renovating, rejuvenating and repairing of the historic halls. A keen astronomer, he's on the hunt for UFOs!
Senior Chef, Tom
As newcomer of the year 2017 Tom plays a central part in maintaining 2 AA Rosette standards (even though he does like pineapple on his pizzas).
Kitchen Porter, Rose
For over forty years Rose has whipped the hotel kitchen into shape. She hasn't lost her lovely Irish lilt in all that time!
Marketing Manager, Liz
Website, social media and newsletters. Leaflets, brochures and events — there's plenty to keep Liz out of trouble.
