  • The hotel is located in Hovingham, a handsome Yorkshire village set in glorious Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you're planning to come by car, you've picked the touring base from heaven! Within a short drive, you've got historic York (20 miles), the castle towns of Helmsley (7 miles) and Pickering (19 miles), the market towns of Malton (8 miles) and Thirsk (18 miles) and the coastal joys of Whitby (39 miles) and Scarborough (31 miles). We're also right next to the North York Moors National Park and only 30 minutes drive to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Historic attractions such as Castle Howard and Nunnington Hall are right on our doorstep and walking or cycling opportunities abound.




    Being built in 1841 in a late Georgian style, specifically to welcome guests to the area, we're often referred to as one of the prettiest hotels near York, surrounded by lovely villages like Ampleforth, Brandsby, Easingwold, Harome and Malton. We're a traditional North Yorkshire Hotel with 20 bedrooms, but offer all the modern conveniences you'd expect and 2 rosettes for food.

  • Weddings at the Worsley Arms Hotel

    The Worsley Arms is a privately operated twenty bedroom hotel in the centre of Hovingham, considered to be one of North Yorkshires most beautiful villages. We have been awarded 2 rosettes for our food by the AA.

    Hovingham is located just twenty five minutes from the centre of York and just a short drive from Castle Howard.

    The hotel offers a variety of options for wedding ceremonies and receptions. Depending on the size of your party the hotel can be booked on an exclusive use basis.

    At the Worsley Arms we are proud of the personal service that we offer to our wedding guests and we endeavour to provide a service that is both flexible and professional, never forgetting that it is your special day. Civil ceremonies start from just £275.00!

    Though spring and summer are the most popular months associated with weddings winter should not be discounted. The Worsley Arms with its log fires glowing and curtains drawn against the elements makes a cosy intimate location for romantic winter weddings. But please don't just take our word for it, please see the comments from recent couples.
