Meet Moggy, Holdsworth House, Halifax, West Yorkshire, UK


There's someone at Holdsworth House in Halifax, the UK who wants to move in! We don’t usually feature non full time resident cats that we don’t know the name of at Hotels With Cats, but we think that this little guy is a hotel cat in training, and well on his way to full time employment at Holdsworth House. He features in so many photos of Holdsworth House on the Internet, he is really dedicated to the cause. So we decided to feature him anyway.

If you have not figured it out, this adorable moggy doesn’t actually belong to the hotel. He lives locally the staff assume; he wears no collar. The free spirited boy visits most days and enjoys the comfort of the cushioned antique mahogany bench in the entrance porch.  He causes quite a stir amongst feline-friendly visitors who grant him a tickle on arrival or leaving, and hangs out for the fresh fish and seafood on the menu. He’s taken it upon himself to occasionally meander the gardens too on patrol duties and helps out with Holdsworth House events. He recently tried to upstage a bride by strolling casually into a wedding shot! We think this Moggy is doing a great job and should be promoted to full time resident cat as soon as pawsible!



Holdsworth House is a beautiful manor house located in Halifax, West Yorkshire, dating back to 1633, although there is evidence of a building on the site as far back as 1272. To this day Holdsworth House retains many period features. You'll discover stone mullioned windows, beamed ceilings and impressive fireplaces that all add a sense of calm, comfort and tradition. The 38 rooms on site range from standard doubles to suites and offer room service, free parking and a welcome glass of wine if you arrive between Sunday and Thursday. The property is also a popular wedding venue.
