A boutique Bed & Breakfast in Newark-on-Trent, UK

The Lions is a small boutique bed and breakfast establishment in Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, that offers comfort and a place to relax – truly a home from home.  A beautiful, Grade II listed, detached townhouse it is one of the finest late Georgian buildings in Newark. 

The house has an attractive and welcoming facade and a front garden area with parking facilities.  The rear garden offers a well-kept space comprising a large lawn, flower beds, shrubs and trees, offering guests the possibility of enjoying breakfast, lunch or, perhaps, in the summer, supper, outdoors on the patio, in a beautiful and peaceful setting.

The Lions is centrally located, an easy 10-minute walk from the town’s market square and varied shopping facilities and a 15-minute walk or a short taxi-ride from both Newark North Gate and Newark Castle railway stations. 

Run by Pablo Petit-Breuilh and John Taylor, the business draws upon Pablo’s experience in international travel and tourism and John’s local background and knowledge of the region.  Both John and Pablo work tirelessly to ensure every guest’s stay is an excellent one.

Christene Rogers

Many thanks to John and Pablo for a wonderful stay. They were most helpful in arranging the booking at very short notice and made us most welcome. The Lions is a beautifully appointed House and very tastefully decorated. The whole place was very clean and tidy and the room very comfortable. Breakfast was prepared to perfection and served in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere. Throughout our stay John and Pablo were most helpful and we will certainly be staying again when visiting Newark. We feel we have made two new friends. Many thanks, Martin and Wendy.
