Holdsworth House is an historic property and a building of local importance and significance. Dating from 1633, the manor is Grade II* Listed and so must follow specific rules and guidance in terms of its operating and maintenance.

The hotel is independently owned by the Pearson family. The Pearsons understand the importance of preserving, protecting and maintaining the manor for future generations of owners, guests and the local communities that it serves. The family is also very mindful of the impact the business has on both the local and global environments. We encourage guests, staff and workforces to consider the environmental impact their actions have whilst at the hotel.

Our team takes environmental and sustainability considerations into account in its day-to-day and long-term decisions/activities. For the list of considerations, please download the PDF
