Relax, it's Holdsworth House not Buckingham Palace

Yes, we're well known for weddings and functions - and we love all our wonderful brides and parties of course! But whilst weddings are taking place in the self-contained Stuart Room, our award-winning restaurant team can be serving you delicious meals in the peace and quiet Mullioned or Paneled rooms.

You might come to dine out for a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary and you'll always be welcome, but our lovely new menus (from 3rd March) have a great selection of starters and mains that you could fancy any night of the week.  The bar menu has tried and tested favourites like sausage and mash, fish and chips, steaks & frites, whilst our a la carte has some fabulous creative treats.  You don't have to sit in the bar to enjoy a bar meal and you don't have to eat from the bar menu if your partner fancies something a bit different. Basically eat whatever you want, wherever you want it. It's brilliantly simple.

Wedding Fair Belles

The sound of over 500 people attending our wedding fair is still ringing in our ears.  Not surprising really, our brides and grooms did not let us down, nor did the perfect weather last Sunday.  The sun was sitting perfectly on cue in the sky and the birds tweeted in all the right places, so we definitely put on our best show for our lovely bridal belles and beaus. There's another chance to look round the hotel on March 22nd at our open evening. This time we provide attendees with a lovely 3-course meal as well as a one-to-one show round, all for just £20.

Wedding Availability

We all know that booking a wedding isn't an easy decision for a bride, so now we're making it simpler by adding all our wedding availability online, so you can browse and see if your preferred date is free. See it in action here

EcoBoutique - Smelling Divine

As an environmentally conscious hotel, Holdsworth House provides top quality Eco Boutique guest amenities in all bathrooms. Using 100% recycled plastic bottles and EcoCert certified organic essential oils, (Chamomile extract, Green Tea Leaf extract, Marigold and Rosemary). An invigorating blend of Sweet Almond, Orange and Grapefruit essential oils create a refreshing gender-free citrus scent.

Pinterest Boards

The strive to be the world's most forward thinking hotel continues this week as Holdsworth House began building a profile on Pinterest. Pinterest is a website that lets you organize and share images and thoughts. A bit like a designer uses a mood board, people use pin boards to collect ideas - great for planning weddings, decorating your home, and finding new places to travel to. We have three pin boards: Informal Great Taste, Holdsworth House Weddings and Bronte Country, Yorkshire.

Please tell us romance isn't dead.

Why do some blokes leave it 'til the last minute to woo their ladies into a state of absolute bliss? Don't they know that most women simply want to be swept off their feet and not have to do the bloomin' organising for once. OK so not all men are the same. There is (somewhere) a number who might have already considered where they're whisking their partners off to this Valentine's Day, booked it, called the florist, ordered the white horse and knight's outfit...
For those who haven't got Valentine's Day sorted, there's a whole week's worth of wooing available at Holdsworth House, not just for February 14th (which is a Tuesday this time). Anything from Valentine's afternoon tea, to a fabulous dinner or a romantic overnight break. Or if you're really going to push the boat out this year, how about proposing? Proposal packages make it nice and 'easy' - well we take care of the organisation, you just need to decide which knee to get down on. Simples x

(But oh, ladies don't forget it's a leap year this time so maybe you will end up doing the organising after all!)

Face Framers - Christian Eyebrow Experience

Unless you're hiding behind a trendy chunky fringe, then the latest accessory to flaunt is your eyebrows. So if yours are more David Bellamy than Jennifer Lopez, maybe its time to trim up. Tune in...

"Christian Eyebrow is a revolutionary system that uses make-up to create perfect shaped eyebrows. Emphasize your eyebrows in an easy, affordable and professional way." Of course at Holdsworth we're always looking to bring you the latest ideas and our beautician Gina is a master at making ladies look gorgeous.  The Eyebrow Experience includes an eyebrow reshape plus the application of Christian eyebrow makeup. Or you can buy your own Christian brow kit from us which comes in a choice of 8 beautiful colours and includes 1 x water resistant powder, 3 x stencils, 1 x brush, 1 x compact mirror and a full explanation leaflet. Or you can add the application of Christian Brow to any bridal or makeup application – this will include tidying up the brow to give the full effect.
Go on, raise one to us!
