More Room Types

Set in the rugged South Pennines, this "delightful" (The AA) ivy-clad Jacobean manor maintains many of its original features -- including open fireplaces and stone mullioned windows. On the edge of the area known as Brontë country -- for its association with the famous literary sisters -- the 17th-century Holdsworth House Hotel & Restaurant is no stranger to celebrity guests, having previously hosted Jamie Oliver and The Beatles. The hotel also recently featured in the BBC's "Last Tango in Halifax".

The hotel's candlelit restaurant has been awarded two AA Rosettes. Open for lunch and dinner, it uses local produce.

The hotel is on the outskirts of Halifax, just over 10 minutes' drive from Eureka! The National Children's Museum and less than 25 minutes' drive from the National Media Museum.

Although displaying the hotel's period oak panelling and low bearing beams, the rooms also benefit from modern comforts such as free Wi-Fi access and 24-hour room service.

Keep an eye out for the stone Maltese cross above the central gable. This cross denotes that at one time the estate was in the hands of the ancient Order of the Knights of St John of Jerusalem.

We have also negotiated a Gin & Tonic Afternoon tea for 2 for £31.50.
