Rooms & Rates
Set in West Yorkshire's rugged South Pennines, this "delightful" (The AA) ivy-clad Jacobean manor retains 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. It also featured in the BBC's "Last Tango in Halifax".
The hotel is on the outskirts of Halifax, in the Yorkshire countryside. It is around 45 minutes' drive from the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Peak District National Park.
When at the hotel, 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.
The hotel's "elegent" candlelit and oak-panelled 2-AA-Rosette restaurant uses local produce -- The AA says "dinner provides the highlight of any stay". Long Bar offers non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks, including local ales on tap and cocktails.
Rooms have Wi-Fi access and 24-hour room service.
