Huddersfield boutique hotel Manor House Lindley has been crowned National Hotel Wedding Venue of the Year at The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) 2022.

Bought in 2016 by owner Sara Presley as a run-down Georgian mansion and former children’s home, the Lindley venue underwent an extensive £5.5 million restoration project that saw it transformed into an eleven-bedroom boutique hotel, restaurant and wedding venue that opened in 2018.

Mark Ayre, general manager at Manor House, said: “After being named best hotel wedding venue in Yorkshire & the North East at the regional finals in February, we are absolutely thrilled to have now been crowned the best hotel wedding venue in the country.

“What makes the win extra special is the award was judged on the feedback and experience of the couples who have been married at Manor House, meaning this win is a huge testament to both our stunning venue and exceptionally talented team.

Mr Ayre added: “The team have worked exceptionally hard to make Manor House a wedding venue with a difference and after an extremely difficult two years for the whole wedding industry, everyone can take great pride in calling themselves national champions.

“It’s hard to believe that as recently as 2016, the building was a run-down Georgian mansion that Sara used to pass on her jogging route. Now, our main wedding space, The Coach House, is a beautifully designed venue that is light, bright and airy and features beamed ceilings, a bespoke floristry wall installation and an imposing art-deco style bar set against classic parquet flooring.

“Being recognised as the best in the country at what we do is most definitely where we want to be.” 

Established in 2011, The Wedding Industry Awards are the only client-voted regional and national awards in the wedding industry.
