Hovingham Hall is a country house built in the Palladian style in the village of Hovingham, North Yorkshire, England. It has been the seat of the Worsley family and the childhood home of the Duchess of Kent. It was built in the 18th century on a site the Worsleys have occupied since the 16th century.

It is built of limestone ashlar with Westmoreland slate roofs to an L-shaped floor plan. An attached stable wing forms the main entrance. The hall is Grade I listed on the National Heritage List for England. A Tuscan temple and the ornamental bridge over a waterfall in the grounds of the hall are both listed Grade II. The wall to the north and the east of the hall and a pigeoncote to the north are both also Grade II listed.

  • This property is in a lovely part of North Yorkshire being the focal point of the village of Hovingham in North Yorkshire The house itself is only open in June as it is still lived in by the family (the most famous recent member of which is the Duchess of Kent). The house is in the Palladian style and has several fantastic rooms. The grounds are also lovely featuring a cricket pitch reputed to be one of the oldest in England. Parking is easy being in the village or the overspill onto the front drive of the house.
  • Beautiful setting for a cricket match. Good local team too.
