"Unusual and delightful accommodation in the centre of this charming town."
Situated only yards away from the stunning Beverley Minster and within a couple of minutes walk of the pedestrianised town centre, 36 Highgate is an apartment furnished in a cottage like style, fully in sympathy with its surroundings. The sitting room is dual aspect and affords stunning views of the Minster, which is illuminated at night. I was there in March and found the apartment to be warm and comfortable as well as offering all the basic facilities for self-catering. For those wishing to eat out, there is an excellent choice of restaurants and pavement cafés in the two market squares and the pedestrianised streets that link them. A wide variety of shops are within immediate reach. There is a pub just across the road set in a building dating from the early medieval period and another pub (the White Horse, known to the locals as 'Nellies') that has barely changed from late Victorian times, has a labyrinth of small rooms with open fires and is still gas lit. The Minster itself is a truly exceptional church of Cathedral proportions, one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in England and a focal point for a variety of musical performances and cultural activities. There is also another fine medieval parish church, St. Mary's, at the opposite end of the town centre, about ten minutes walk away. The owner is exceptionally welcoming and takes great care to cater for the individual needs of her guests. A real gem, and somewhere that I have pencilled in for many repeat visits.
"Excellent communication with property owner, Fantastic location, everything you need in the property to enjoy your stay."
"Had a great time, would recommend staying here very clean and tidy."
Anna was very kind and helpful.
"Wonderful apartment central for all that historic Beverley has to offer."
This apartment was larger than expected and very comfortable for a self-contained week-long break during these challenging times. Well equipped in a lovely quiet location where despite the parking restrictions in Beverley we found parking easy (make sure that you book a permit from the host in advance). Anna, the host was very friendly and keen to make sure that we had a great break.
"A very comfortable apartment in a great location."
We really enjoyed our short break. Although the listing mentioned a fridge/freezer there was no freezer compartment. This would have been an inconvenience had we arrived with frozen food or been staying longer. In spite of the resident's permit finding a parking space nearby wasn't always easy.
"Really nice apartment in old building less than 100 metres from the Minster and very close to shops and restaurants."
Getting access to a resident's parking permit is a huge asset although sometimes it could be hard finding a space. There's a dishwasher but no washing machine and I wonder it that is the right way round. Access is via a spiral iron stair-case outside which felt OK but could be an issue for someone with reduced mobility.
"Anna was very responsive in addressing any issues and keeping me informed."

36 Highgate is a duplex apartment, with a cottage feel, situated in the heart of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Ideal for a small family or couple, this retreat offers a welcoming accommodation with the amenities of Beverley town centre just a short walk away.
Accessed via a metal spiral staircase, you enter the apartment onto the first floor with the bedrooms on the second floor.
Wander into the lovely sitting room where you can spend your down time on the sofa with the TV on for a cosy night in.
Step through into the kitchen/diner, a neutrally decorated room with all the necessary appliances and an appealing dining area where you can enjoy each mealtime together.
Head upstairs to find the bedrooms, including a double with en-suite bathroom and a twin which is ideal for children.
Outside there is a terrace overlooking rooftops where you can enjoy your morning coffee while contemplating how to spend the day.
Additional to this, the Minster Garden is open to all and access can be gained via the small iron gate next to the Minster Vicarage and offices (see sign on the gate).
Stroll the cobbled streets of Beverley to find a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants to indulge in, or brush up local history while exploring the 13th century Minister, widely regarded as one of Europe’s finest Gothic churches and frequently used as a double of Westminster Abbey in films and dramas.
If all of that seems a little too energetic, escape the wildflower meadows of The Westwood and the Yorkshire Wolds.
The seaside resort of Hornsea can be reached in less than half an hours drive and is an excellent day out with its award-winning, Blue Flag beach.
This self-catering apartment can be enjoyed by families and couples, all-year-round.
