The White Lion also offers 10 recently refurbished and spacious en-suite hotel rooms within its’ walls. The luxurious boutique bedrooms, with Victorian Roll-Top baths, Sleigh beds, and deep luxurious colours; are complemented by our cosy courtyard cottages - with the riverside literally at your front door.

For location, the White Lion could not be better placed for a perfect relationship between ease of transport and stunning surroundings. Centrally located in the pretty town of Hebden Bridge, which itself is nestled in a deep ravined valley of Calderdale; the area offers breathtaking countryside within walking distance from the hotel, whilst also allowing easy access to the bohemian atmosphere and boutique shops of the town. Despite it’s countryside setting; The White Lion does benefit from easy access to the M62, and is only a short 5 minute walk from Hebden Bridge train station on the Trans-Pennine Leeds to Manchester line. As such, the vibrant cities of Leeds and Manchester are only a short distance away; making the White Lion a superb base for business or leisure.
