Hovingham Lodge is the farthest house on Pasture Lane, connected to the heart of the village and its amenities via a short footpath. Hovingham itself is the Estate village of the Worsley family and retains all the charm associated with their beneficent control. Nothing spoils the original layout and architecture, and the parkland and cricket ground provide a singular backdrop. There is a primary school, thriving village shop, bakery, two pubs including the Worsley Arms hotel, village hall that doubles up as an arts venue, tennis club, bowling green and an award-winning monthly market. The village sits in glorious AONB countryside between two market towns, Helmsley on the edge of the North York Moors and Malton with its railway station connecting to mainline York. There are fine walks on the doorstep and close by are excellent pubs and gourmet establishments including Michelin-starred The Star Inn. Independent schooling can be found at Terrington and Ampleforth with excellent schooling in York some half an hour’s drive away.
