Last month we spent 3 midweek nights at Holdsworth House, and really enjoyed our visit. Despite being surrounded by large schools, factories and residential properties, the hotel is very quiet and peaceful. You feel like you are way out in the middle of the countryside, which you probably would have been until some years ago. Halifax has considerably expanded outwards... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Halifax's only four-star hotel is now listed in the 2013 Michelin Guide along with the country's elite hotels & restaurants. Holdsworth House is a beautiful Jacobean manor built in 1633, which has been owned and run by the Pearson family for 50 years. The manor stands 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 39 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. ... more   less
