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

Minster Chimes—an Excellent Choice
This is our second stay at this home! It is in a great location to walk into town and next to Tesco! Car parking is literally at the front door! All on one floor which is perfect for us!! Julia is wonderful and very responsive! Arrived with fresh milk in the fridge for tea, lovely flowers and a pack of cookies! Two bedrooms, shower and tub! Everything you need including wash machine! Full size fridge and well appointed kitchen with toaster, teapot and microwave oven. Very clean. Comfortable beds. Quiet! Every time we come to this area, we will try to book Minster Chimes!
Lovely roomy bungalow - fairly well equipped - the picture is actually of the sun trap of a back garden. Tesco opposite .
Really nice bungalow in an ideal location
We really enjoyed staying at Minster Chimes. The location was perfect and we only even used the car once. Right next to Tesco and only 5 mins walk from the really nice turn centre it was perfect.
The bungalow had everything we needed including a well looked after back garden with patio where we ate on a couple of occasions. Well stocked with some books and DVDs and board games I believe I saw although we didn't use any.
Care had gone into making a lovely place to stay and we would definable like to stay again if we come back to Beverley.
The town is picturesque with a blend of period architecture and more modern but tasteful buildings and a range of shopping opportunities (my wife had a considerable time exploring the charity shops, for which I was grateful for the various benches throughout the town where I cold wait for her).
Thanks to the owner for letting us stay in her lovely home, we had a really good 4 nights. Recommended.
