General Info

This former hotel is in the village of Burton Agnes, set between Bridlington and Driffield and offers lovely accommodation for larger parties. The Blue Bell strikes all the right notes and is a perfect venue for that special day as the central room with its feature glass atrium roof seats up to 100 guests. The bedrooms are split across three areas with twelve in the main house, four set around a courtyard and two duplex apartments. All the bedrooms are en-suite with the majority offering super king-size beds which can be changed to create twin rooms. The master suite is a spacious indulgence with two bathrooms, whilst there is a family duplex room which can sleep up to fourteen. There is a large kitchen, perfect for a chef to create mouth-watering meals and there is a pub on-site which really provides all your needs under one stunning roof and the hot tub adds the icing on the cake. The Blue Bell is a wonderful choice for family gatherings as the central room doubles up as a games room and dining room with standard seating for 40 guests. There are two sitting rooms, one of which is known as the snug as it has an open fire where you can sit, raise your glasses and toast the occasion. In the village, Burton Agnes Hall is a magnificent Elizabethan mansion and well worthy of a visit to both the house and gardens. Walkers and cyclists, history and culture buffs, beach and seascape seekers are all catered for here. The stunning Yorkshire Coast is a mere 6 miles away offering sandy beaches and towering majestic cliffs full of seabirds and the Yorkshire Wolds is a rolling landscape dotted with pretty villages. The lovely market town of Beverley is under 20 miles away and offers a wealth of things to do, there are independent boutiques and shops within charming courtyards and cobbled streets. The Georgian Quarter is architecturally fascinating with many listed buildings including the 15th century North Bar and at the heart of the town is the Gothic cathedral of Beverley Minster. Beverley Racecourse is set in the stunning surroundings of The Westwood which has beautiful common grounds with good walks and views of the town. The accommodation is all there ready for you and all you have to do is provide the occasion! Read More

Appalling would not recommend

Booked this large spacious venue for a family get together . Dirty , debris all over the bar area needed to be cleaned thoroughly before use . Rubbish dust hair and grime in every room Some beds had not been changed

Fab but filthy

The accommodation and location were perfect for our large family get together. Unfortunately the stay was blighted with the general cleanliness of the place, especially the bedrooms, en suites, kitchen and outdoor areas, very disappointing especially in these times of covid, Would not and could not recommend unless the owners and or management team take responsibility for the many issues raised and were to act accordingly.

Filthy

We stayed at The Bluebell in a self catering capacity over the August 2021 bank holiday weekend. The premises was not ready at the specified hire time on Friday, it was still being 'cleaned'. Once in we found it generally dirty, we had to wash all the kitchen and bar equipment before use, the windows were dirty and mouldy, litter and dust was found behind all the bedside cabinets and at the edges of the beds. The bathrooms had hair around the white suites and in the plugholes. The large industrial bins outside were full and smelly, we saw rats around them. The field at the back was covered in litter and a dead pigeon was waiting to greet us on the patio! The House keeper apologised a lot during handover saying she had told the owner she could not turn the premises around in one day. (she had 2 adult cleaners including herself and just 5 hours for an 18 bedroomed property!) She raised her hands in despair over the fact that the groundsman had not been that day. Despite raising general issues around cleanliness on the evening of arrival by telephone the owner simply laughed at my suggestion that it needed a good steam clean. The housekeeper could not return that evening when we found that towels had not been left out as she had a young family so she gave us the linen room door codes instead - she said she shouldn't but didn't know what else to do. I felt quite sorry for her. The owner has disputed my complaint since consistently and seems unable to comprehend that it should not have been provided in this state. I have raised this with Visit England who have previously given it a good to go status (it is NOT). They are now investigating. Having paid nearly £6000 to hire the whole premises for a family weekend we were very disappointed. We also had no hot water for most of Sunday - it was resolved but was due to low pressure in the boilers so they clearly had not been serviced regularly. I have many many pictures of the unsanitary conditions - this premises was not clean to the standard of a paying guest pre pandemic let alone post pandemic. The whole experience has been made so much worse by the owners apparent lack of concern regarding the cleanliness of the property. It is quite simply a covid pit. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g504016-d3636179-r812353590-The_Blue_Bell_Inn-Weaverthorpe_North_Yorkshire_England.html#
