On the edge of Halifax, Holdsworth House is a pretty 17thcentury Jacobean manor set in three acres of grounds. Dating back to 1633, the family-owned 38 bedroom 4* hotel has open fires, beamed ceilings, oak paneled halls, and mullioned windows. The bedrooms are all individually decorated with some dog-friendly.
The hotel and gardens have been used in a variety of television programmes, notably for the wedding of Celia and Alan in Last Tango in Halifax, and still commemorates the Beatles stay in 1964.
The two AA Rosette restaurant is separated into two areas creating a cosy, intimate atmosphere with an open log fire in winter.
The period gardens at the front of the house were restored some time ago, and within the grounds there are hidden courtyards, ancient trees and a gazebo. A local junior school has put together a time capsule, which is buried beneath the sundial.
