The leasehold on an historic West Yorkshire riverside inn has been placed on the market.
The beer garden of the White Lion hotel overlooks Hebden Water in the stone-built country town of Hebdenn Bridge in Calderdale.
The country inn serves as a central base for visitors to the region, which is crossed by the Calderdale Way, the Pennine Way and the Rochdale Canal.
The property was built in 1657 as a hostelry serving the river crossing. In the 18th and 19th centuries it became an important coaching inn on the Halifax-to-Rochdale stagecoach route.
It retains a number of period features such as exposed beams, mullion windows, and a stone fireplace with spirals carved on either side, which is an old local charm against fire.
The inn - which is renowned for its breakfasts - offers 10 en-suite bedrooms which all carry a four Star Inn rating. It can seat 62 customers across the bar and snug and another 35 in the restaurant.
The detached stone property also contains a first floor function room for 50 delegates, a three-bedroom owners' flat and a separate one-bedroom flat.
The Leeds office of Christie + Co is inviting offers of £175,000 for the lease, which runs to September 2013.
