Welcome to the Hovingham Village Website

Hovingham is situated within the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Ryedale District of North Yorkshire, approximately 19 miles north of the city of York and midway between the market towns of Helmsley and Malton.

The idyllic location of the village, perfectly placed as a base for many local activities, has many outstanding features, including historic Hovingham Hall, a beautiful Victorian school, a delightful Saxon Church, Marr’s beck and a lovely playground, all in picturesque settings much appreciated by children and adults alike.

Our aim is for this site to be a useful resource for local people as well as those wanting to visit the area. So come on in, explore a little further and discover more about our fascinating village.
