Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Worsley Arms Hotel is a 19th-century property in the village of Hovingham, set in the Howardian Hills in the Ryedale District of North Yorkshire. Grade I-listed Hovingham Hall has been home to the Worsley family since 1563, and is open for guided tours every day from 1-28 June, 2017. 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 Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and 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.

An à la carte menu is available in the main restaurant -- which holds two AA Rosettes -- and the Cricketers Bar, which serves lighter meals. Produce is locally sourced, including game and venison from the Hovingham Estate and lamb from the local 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, close to many of North Yorkshire's tourist offerings" -- The AA Hotel Guide 2017

  • "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 2017
