The present manor house, built by Abraham Brigg in 1633, retains many period features including splendid mullioned windows, oak panelling, wig cupboards and, above the central gable, the stone Maltese cross of the chivalric Order of St John of Jerusalem. Over the years, there have been a variety of celebrities visiting the hotel but the most famous of them all must surely be The Beatles who stayed here at the height of their fame in 1964 on John Lennon’s 24th birthday. The 2 AA Rosette restaurant at Holdsworth House offers modern home-cooked food. The three adjoining, beautifully furnished rooms overlook the gardens – The Stone Room, The Panelled Room and the Mullioned Room.
