Detached Bungalow central Beverley great location for Hull City of Culture 2017



Updated: 21-Oct-2016
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 the Owner

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.

extremely clean and homely

  • 4 of 5

This property had a very homely feel to it and was very clean and well stocked. Added bonus was fresh flowers, a nice touch and tea/biscuits on arrival. Excellent location and parking space for 2 cars outside off street. Customer service from point of contact to end of stay was first class. As this was a family occasion the house suited us down to the ground as within easy walking distance, making the most of our weekend in Beverley. The house is aptly named as we could hear could hear the Minster Chimes, an added bonus

Comfortable and well-positioned stay in Beverley

  • 4 of 5

The bungalow was comfy,clean, well-equipped with everything we needed,including a welcome tray with goodies from Julia and Graham,which made us feel welcome.

The rooms were all good sized,and the kids loved the bathtub :-)

There was plenty of room in the garden,we used the terrace,which was just right in the afternoons, when the sun did break through.

The only minuses we found were,that the garden was a little overgrown with weeds,(not a great problem,it just seemed unkept compared to everything else) and that the toilet was "underpowered" and had difficulty flushing.

Otherwise, a lovely house very close to shopping facilities (a large,well assorted supermarket 2 minutes walk away),with own parking space,(which is welcome in Beverley),and still quite quiet and private,despite being very close to the towncentre.

We enjoyed our stay,and would gladly stay here again,and can recommend a stay at Minster Chimes :-)

Owner's Response: We are pleased you enjoyed your stay in Minster Chimes and agree it is a perfect location. Sorry about the overgrown garden, the gardener was away on holiday! ...on our return we were amazed to find how much the plants and also the weeds had grown because, as visitors have commented, it is a real suntrap. At least it is a sunny and secluded place to sit and relax, a rarity for some holiday rentals!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and had the opportunity to enjoy the garden which as you pointed out, is a real sun trap. Some of our visitors have commented that it is like being in the countryside rather than the town centre! We look forward to welcoming you in the future.

Spacious,clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

On arriving and parking in the bungalow's own private space,we entered into a lovely clean well presented house,with a welcome note flowers on the table ,milk in the fridge and biscuits .As there was three of us staying and two double bedrooms,I myself slept on the Sofa bed at the back of the house,looking over the garden.It was probably the best sofa bed I have come across yet,very comfortable(and it is always me that goes for the quieter end of any house we stay in ,with generally the sofa bed!)

The bathroom had lots of space and a very good shower,and the kitchen again very spacious and well equipped.There is a lovely garden to relax in and you can see the minster from the back of the house.With Tesco's just over the road and the centre of town 5 minutes away it is ideally located.

Hopefully I will be able to book it for next year.
