Holdsworth House is a beautiful Jacobean manor built in 1633, which has been owned and run by the Pearson family for 50 years. It's a four star hotel and historic manor standing in stunning, secluded gardens and is just three miles north of Halifax. It feels a world apart from the bustle of everyday life and is a perfect choice for accommodation, weddings and conferences. In this beautiful old house you'll find open fires, cosy lounges, fine antiques and tapestries that create a sense of history and comfort. The 38 charming bedrooms are all ensuite and have all been individually furnished. Dinner is served by candlelight in the 17th Century, oak-paneled 2 AA Rosette-winning restaurant whilst the Long Bar has a simpler brasserie style menu.

This was, I think, our 4th or 5th stay with Holdsworth Hall which speaks for itself. And I use the term ‘with’ as the pleasant, welcoming, efficient and helpful staff are as much part of the experience as is the hotel and its cuisine. We will return. I suspect there’s been a change of Chef or at least a progression from a good typical British/Yorkshire menu to one whilst retaining its obvious roots has gained a hint of creativity which entices. As ever it is all excellent in both flavour and presentation. If you get the chance do sit out and enjoy a drink in the pretty garden.

Arrived early afternoon to a welcoming glass of Prosecco, nice quiet room which was a nice bonus because we had our little dog with us , he was made very welcome, bowl , blanket & a very special doggie biscuit in the room for him. Evening meal was set up for us in the bar , to accommodate Alfie 🐶 We all enjoyed a hearty meal followed by a tasty cheese board to share. The grounds lite up were a pure joy. After a very comfortable nights sleep the breakfast tables were set up in the bar for us , the breakfast was delicious, sausage for Alfie 🐾 Highly recommended wether it be business or pleasure. Staff were helpful and very friendly,even managed a little chat with the friendly gardener who was tending the immaculate gardens
