Sight for sore eyes!
Thanks to our friends at Destination Beverley for these photographs, which show the dramatic scene to the rear of the Beverley Arms Hotel where the demolition of the 1960s rear extension block, dubbed an eyesore by many people, has finally been completed. It’s due to be replaced by a new 38-bedroom extension, more in keeping with the character of the historic building.
Work by new owners Daniel Thwaites Ltd is following a timetable which should see the refurbished hotel open by next April. Rick Bailey, chief executive officer at Thwaites, said: “We are very excited about our plans for The Beverley Arms and have worked hard to put them together. We know the building is well loved by the community from the feedback we have had since purchasing the site, and we wanted to make sure what we planned was just right for the area and sensitive to its Grade II Listed status. We’re really pleased with how it’s coming together.”
The Beverley Arms will be part of the Inns of Character portfolio, a group of historic coaching inns that Daniel Thwaites has been steadily building into a collection of high quality, well-invested properties in some of Britain’s most beautiful towns and villages. The company’s acquisition of The Beverley Arms follows the successful re-launch of The Judge’s Lodging in York, which reopened as one of the group’s Inns of Character following a £2.5m refurbishment.
