The Worsley Arms Hotel is a 19th-century property in the North Yorkshire village of Hovingham, set in the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Grade I-listed Hovingham Hall has been home to the Worsley family since 1563 and the village has a shop, a café, a pub, a bakery and a monthly market.

National Trust property Nunnington Hall is a 5-minute drive from the hotel and the market town of Thirsk is 30 minutes away. Thirsk is famed for being the home of James Herriot, author of All Creatures Great and Small; you can learn about him at the World of James Herriot Visitor Attraction. Castle Howard, described by Lonely Planet as "one of the world's most beautiful buildings", is five miles away.

The area is a walker's paradise: you can explore the Hovingham estate or follow trails within the Howardian Hills and the North York Moors National Park. Whitby, Staithes and the fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay are just over an hour's drive from the hotel.

The main restaurant holds two AA Rosettes, while the Cricketers Bar serves lighter meals. Produce is locally sourced, including game and venison from the Hovingham estate and lamb from the village of Coulton, and the hotel has an extensive wine cellar.

From the press:

  • "The hotel has some very attractive gardens, and the village is a delightfully tranquil location" -- The AA Hotel Guide 2018

  • "This proprietor-run hotel offers a truly gastronomic experience. Food and wine are taken seriously here, and there is a strong commitment to local provenance" --  The AA Restaurant Guide 2018

The room was quite small, especially as we had a dog with us. The bathroom would definitely benefit from some TLC - and better cleaning.
