About The Lions
Thanks! You'll receive an email as soon as the property answers your question.
Pablo and John
The Lions was built in 1823 and is a Georgian townhouse. For the first 20 years of its existence the house was used as a school - it still has the bell tower and working bell! It is now a lovely B & B with tasteful décor where you can relax.
Originally from Chile, I have lived in the UK for nearly 30 years. I now run a beautiful B & B in Newark. After living in London for the bulk of this time I moved to Newark 2013. We opened on 01.04.15. I am married to my long term partner John.
Newark is an undiscovered gem. It is steeped in history and was the epicentre of the English Civil War - The National Civil War Centre opened on 01.05.15. It has beautiful architecture, a fine market square and always has something going on.
