Overview

About the property

Bungalow in Beverley, Yorkshire, England - Sunny Enclosed Garden With Off-road Parking

Unlike other properties, our bungalow "Minster Chimes" is genuinely located close to the centre of the historic market town of Beverley. It is only 5 minutes’ walk to numerous shops, restaurants and public houses. There are good rail and bus links to Hull (City of Culture 2017), York and the Yorkshire coast. No car required!

Sleeps 4 in two double bedrooms with plenty of storage space. The sunny and spacious kitchen diner faces south with an enclosed pleasant garden area and patio with garden furniture. There is a cosy lounge with a gas fire and a spacious bathroom with bath and walk-in shower. Facilities include flat screen TV and DVD, free WiFi, microwave oven, washing machine. A sofa bed in the dining area allows more flexibility in sleeping arrangements.

Free off road parking is available at the front of the property.

Recently Minster Chimes was the temporary home to visitors working on the new Flemingate shopping centre and we received this feedback:

"Hi Julia,

If I could say that Morton Lane accommodation in Beverley was really comfortable and it was a pleasure after a long days work knowing that I was going back to something that was home from home and could unwind very easy. The facilities within the home was second to none and all I had to supply was the food. Everything from clean linen, books to read and TV to watch were all at hand. Lastly the location of the bungalow was very handy as we didn't have our own transport so it was 15minutes walking to and from our workplace, 10minutes walking to the train station and a large Tesco was right across the street. Beverley town centre was also only approximately about minutes away.

I would like to thank Graham and yourself for the comfort of your own home, best of wishes and would look forward to returning one day if we ever get another project in the lovely town of Beverley. Adrian"

About Julia Smith

My husband and I have lived in historic Beverley for over 20 years and we have loved every moment of it. From the rear of the bungalow you will be able to spot the roof of Beverley Minster and it is possible to enjoy the unusual melodic chimes every 15 minutes. I really enjoy wandering around the markets and popping into the small specialist shops. There are numerous superb eating and drinking venues within easy walking distance of Minster Chimes and it is an excellent base to visit the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds. We hope you will come and visit and discover Beverley’s hidden gems and share our enjoyment.

A delightful bungalow in a delightful market town

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at Minster Chimes, the bungalow was so much bigger than it looked from the outside and we spent lots of time watching the birds in the garden, luckily the weather was kind to us. Julia had thought of everything that could be needed to make it an enjoyable stay and very kindly left some lovely flowers and a welcome tray. The location couldn't be better, only a five minute walk from the bus station and town and ten minutes from Flemingate and the train station. Thanks again Julia we can't wait to return!

Only problem was....

  • 4 of 5

.......when the council dug up our pavement depriving us of access to the car parking area. The house itself was welcoming, clean, comfortable and within easy walking distance of the town centre. Beverley is a great place to base yourself for this area and minster chimes somewhere we would return to if coming again.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you enjoyed your stay in Minster Chimes, and sure that you understand that the unexpected roadworks were completely beyond our control. At least our lovely neighbours helped out by moving their car so that you had continued access. Do hope you will be back!

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

10 out of 10. A very comfortable cottage. A home from home. The garden is so pretty, though it was a bit cold to sit outside.

Minster Chimes, Beverley

Amazing. Really comfortable and well equipped. So very central to Beverley which is a lovely market town. Beats a chain hotel every time. Thank you to Julia Smith.

Great bungalow with everything you might need supplied. Also Beverley as a location is excellent

  • 5 of 5

The stay we had at 'Minster Chimes' was perfect. The accommodation was just as described and was beautifully clean and well equipped. The town of Beverley is a great location in itself with many 'one off' shops, cafes, and much more. It is also within easy reach of large cities, such as Hull and York. Yorkshire is a lovely welcoming part of the country and well worth a return visit.

Very clean and terrific location. All the amenities were as if you were in your own home. I would certainly stay there again if I was to revisit East Yorkshire.

Location

Coast/Beach:

Beverley is just 25 minutes from the East Yorkshire coast with its extensive golden sands. Bridlington is 35 minutes drive and offers two stunning beaches, with a picturesque, bustling harbour in the middle. The harbour is a hive of activity with fishing boats bringing in the day's catch, pleasure cruises along the heritage coast, speedboat rides across the bay and North Sea fishing expeditions on offer.

Travel:

Humberside is the closest commercial airport, 25 miles away.

From the west, the M62 brings you to the Humber Bridge, from the south the A15 brings you to the Humber Bridge (toll bridge). From there it is a 20 minute road journey to Beverley.

From the north the A1 links to the M62.

The North Sea Ferries port in Hull provides links with Rotterdam and Zeebrugge.

A car is not essential as the bungalow is within a 10 minute walk of bus and rail stations.

Distances:

Beverley to Hull 12 miles

Beverley to York 31 miles

Beverley to the coast (Hornsea) 25 minutes

Beverley to Scarborough 34 miles

Beverley to North York Moors National Park 37 miles. Pickering and the North York Moors steam railway provide a super day out. Flamingo Land theme park is just an hour away.

The Michelin star restaurant “The Pipe and Glass” is just 20 minutes drive away. There are several small coffee houses and tea rooms.
