Townhouse in Beverley, East Yorkshire, England - 10 Minutes Walk From Historic Town Center Of Beverley
About Steve Peak
We bought this house in Beverley as a base for visiting family and friends in the area. When we first viewed it, we fell in love with it. The previous owner was an architect who had sympathetically modernised it with care and attention to detail. The day room at the rear of the house is what really sold it to us as it is a light and airy room even in winter. The roof is higher than the normal rooms with two large skylights and the far wall is all glass. This makes the room almost part of the garden and even on mild winter days we often sit with the door wide open. We love Beverley which is a beautiful market town and is handy for some lovely villages in the Yorkshire Wolds where we like to walk.
Steve Peak purchased this House in 2006

56 Norwood Grove, Beverley
This is a very comfortable house, situated within easy walking distance of the centre of Beverley, but far enough out for the street to be agreeably quiet. The owners have had a well-designed extension added that has skylights and french doors that make it very light and a great place to sit and watch the garden or TV.
There are 2 bathrooms, one separate with bath and one ensuite with a shower. Would happily return.

Hi Mel and Nick, thank you for your review. I think the day room is one of the rooms that attracted us to the house when we bought it.
Very pleased you enjoyed your stay.

Superb location and very well equipped
This terraced property is perfect for a stay in the lovely town of Beverley. Ideal location for walking to the town, bus or railway station. No guaranteed parking but a space was usually available somewhere in the street. Spent most of our time in rear sitting room overlooking the garden. One of the best equipped self catering places we have stayed in.
Thank you for taking time to write a review..pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Parking is usually not a problem and it is outside the charged parking zone.
Best wishes, Steve and Roy

Beverley is close the coastal resorts of East Yorkshire, including the nature reserves of Spurn Point and Flamborough Head. These are wonderful for bird watching.
Leeds Bradford airport is an hour away and there are good road and rail links to the rest of Britain. London is about two hours away by train. A car is not essential but would be an enjoyable addition to your stay.
The historic city of York is 30 miles away. Also you may not have considered visiting the nearby town of Hull but the old town has some interesting landmarks and excellent museums plus a spectacular aquarium. The journey takes only 15 minutes by train.
Castle Howard of 'BridesHead Revisited' fame is an hour's drive and there are many picturesque villages around the area. The Yorkshire Wolds are on the doorstep with excellent easy walking.
Beverley is a historic market town with a twice weekly market and a host of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. You will also find the better known supermarkets close by.
There is an award winning fish and chip shop and an excellent deli 5 minutes walk from the house.
The town dates back to the 8th Century and was originally known as Inderawuda and was founded by Saint John of Beverley during the time of Angle kingdom Northumbria.
After a period of Viking control, it was passed into the hands of Saxons where it became more prominent in terms of religious importance in Great Britain. It continued to grow especially under the Normans when its trading industry was first established. A place of pilgrimage through the Middle Ages due to its founder, Beverley eventually became known as a noted wool-trading town.
Beverley was once the 10th largest town in England and amongst the richest, thanks in part to its connection to founding saint of the town John of Beverley, however the English Reformation saw the town drop in stature.
