Welcome to Worsley Arms Hotel

'Picturesque' doesn't quite do the ancient village of Hovingham justice. Golden sandstone houses, beautiful Saxon church, immaculate village green, impressive Beck and the glorious Hovingham Hall as its centrepiece.

Hovingham is located in the aptly named Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just a short drive to the North York Moors National Park and Historic City of York.

The Worsley Arms Hotel stands proud in the village, glowing in the setting sun, overlooking the green at the cross-roads. It is an unstuffy affair, of late-Georgian splendour, owned and managed by Tony and Sally Finn for over 20 years. Their genuine focus is on ensuring guests are relaxed and comfortable. It is like a second home to many, a place to meet friends or make them and a place to return to.

There are 20 bedrooms, an elegant restaurant and informal dining bar. Comfortable lounges open onto a welcoming garden with marquee and grassed area.

This is a place to relax; a place to drink, to eat, to meet, to celebrate.

Aubrey Smith) and Michael O'Brien (Charles Winninger) are rich but lonely, so they invite a pair of strangers, schoolteacher Jean Lawrence (Jean Parker) and Texan ranch hand James Houston (Richard Carlson) to their house for dinner on Christmas Eve.
