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 famous as 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.

Very relaxed hotel but standards were very good, very clean rooms and comfy beds. We had dinner on both nights and the food was excellent along with the wine. Staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We will return for another stay as we enjoyed very much.

The historic old building 1854 is in need of some TLC and investment in its interior fabric to bring it up to date. But a sensitive restoration must not lose its historic qualities.
