A worthy holder of the number 1 B&B in Beverley. Lovely large room, all the amenities we would need, wonderful breakfast and attentive proprietor. Would definitely look to stay there again if we find ourselves in Beverley.

I had the fortune to be working in Beverley last week, and was fortunate that I could reserve a room at the Newbegin House. I have stayed here before, and it was a pleasure to return. I was given a guided tour of the garden, and was impressed by the restoration work recently completed. Breakfasts are excellent - including Whisky with porridge!.... The house is very central, just by the Saturday Market, and so comfortable.
I look forward to my next return.

If you love history, antiques and places with character this is for you. We arrived early (before 2pm) but were kindly encouraged to park in the yard so were able to drop off our cases and explore the town with its refreshingly vehicle-free spaces. Of course - this does mean the one-way system is difficult, so advance planning is essential! A word of warning - there are two buildings called Newbegin House so don't do what we did and try to gain entry to the first one you reach in the one-way system! The B & B is in the second Georgian building that fronts the road, not the huge one behind a green fence & gates! We were in the family room, the enormous 'drawing room' which contained a very comfy double bed and two singles and was furnished like a drawing- room-cum-study with contents including 2 settees, bookcases, 2 armchairs, a large desk, chests of drawers, a large wardrobe, a fireplace with mirror over at each end & 2 chandeliers! We remarked how much our boys would have loved staying there when they were small, not least because of the beautiful wooden rocking horse between the two single beds and huge TV. They would have thought the double wooden shutters at the 3 large windows fun too. We appreciated the small fridge with a jug of fresh milk for our tea/coffee plus a full- size kettle. There was plenty of hot water in the bathroom where there is a shower over the bath & glass screen and the room was perfectly warm. Our cooked breakfast was excellent, especially the juicy mushrooms and meaty sausages from Vanessa's, the nearby deli, that we felt deserved a visit. Wow! How we wished we had a deli and butcher like that back home! Newbegin House is perfectly placed for visiting the town and there is a good choice of places to eat within walking distance.

We arrived at Newbegin at around 6.30 p.m on a Saturday night which posed no problem for Walter (the proprietor). After being given a brief history of the House and tour of the walled garden (photo to be uploaded shortly), Walter most graciously offered to take our luggage to our room; the Eveson Suite. The House boasts a warm,friendly and unguarded family atmosphere. At no time did we feel neglected, unappreciated or rushed. At all times Walter showed a genuine interest in and was attentive to, us, and all of his guests. His sincerity and hosting was one of the most refreshing highlights of our visit in Beverley. We must also recognise and cheer the efforts made by Nuala in assisting Walter with the smooth running of the House and we deny anyone not to fall in love with Juno!! (If you want to find out who Juno is you'd better go and visit). We felt the tariff paid for the room was entirely reasonable given the room's facilities, the surroundings and the exceptional breakfast spread. It was a fantastic experience and we wish Walter and all his family our warmest wishes. David & JoJo

We have just come back from a one night stay at Newbegin House in the beautiful market town of Beverley after finding it on TripAdvisor. The number one status bestowed on it for B&Bs in Beverley must be absolutely justified as I cannot imagine any other in the town can match it. The building is beautiful, with period features and furniture at every turn. Our host, Walter, was as hospitable as any person could be, warm, friendly, and an incredibly interesting gentleman. After our wonderfully beautifully cooked breakfast full of local produce, he was kind enough to give us a tour of the house's gardens. Add to that the location which is perfect for exploring Beverley, I doubt that Newbegin House could ever be beat. Cherry on the cake? Juno of course. Thank you Walter for a wonderful visit. We may be back.

Room Tip: Iveson room was extremely comfortable, rear facing and really quiet.

I am blushing with delight at your glowing review, and have told Juno what you said about her....
She (and I) hope you will come again some day, and wish you many more years of married bliss.
Incidentally, I fully concur with your other reviews arising from your visit to Beverley.

Just one "Terrible" review and crikey it is so undeserved. I wonder how many of us (particularly in older houses) can boast not having the odd cobweb?! I do hope that Walter and Nuala put it behind them asap. I rarely write TA reviews, but Newbegin deserves one.

A 37 room Georgian G2 listed house in the heart of Beverley. Just how often does the opportunity arise to even see inside one of these gems, let alone sleep in the upstairs Drawing Room? Walter and Nuala have cared enough to investigate its history and previous ownership and you get to read this fascinating report. There are old photos of the house in Victorian and Edwardian times. We loved the photo of the Edwardian family posing in the garden in an informal and laughing picture - so rare for those times.

Even their books (so many) are in alphabetic order.

We ate and slept well (the former courtesy of Walter and his girls at breakfast AND the local restaurants) and wouldn't hesitate to return, when visiting our own daughter at Hull. In fact we'll look forward to it. Newbegin is a wonderful, even quirky, home lived in by lovely people. And no, we're not related!


Heck, perhaps we ought to move to Beverley!

Room Tip: Only saw the Drawing Room. You can spend and hour just browsing in it. Even fronting NB Road, it was...

The most enjoyable part of running Newbegin House, apart from getting to live here ourselves, is meeting such delightful and appreciative guests. We cannot claim the credit for researching the history of ther house and its occupants since it was built in 1746. Susan Neave, a historian at Hull University, wrote the booklet you read and managed to discover a great deal about the previous occupants of the house, Susan was ably assisted by her husband Dr. David Neave, who researched architectural changes to the house, drawing on his considerable expertise on the architecture of the town. We owe them a debt of gratitude for bringing the past to life.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to all three of you for choosing to stay with us, and making our role in looking after you such a pleasure. Incidentally, we shall be opening the house and garden to the public in September 2014, as part of the celebration of Georgian Beverley.
Kind regards,
Walter and Nuala

My husband and I stayed for the evening in February 2014. We had a wonderful stay. The house is Georgian and beautiful. The breakfast is stunning, fresh fruit, fresh bread all great local produce. The location is excellent just two minutes from the centre with ample off-road parking. Highly recommended
