A grade II listed Lakeland inn has been put on the market for the first time in 126 years.

The King's Head Hotel in Ravenstonedale is on the market for £675,000 and has been owned by the Metcalfe-Gibson family since 1892.

Its latest owner, Christopher Metcalfe-Gibson, said: "The King’s Head is a much loved family business and I am sad to be selling but the time is right to now move on and enjoy my retirement.

"I very much hope to find the right buyer who can continue to build on the solid foundations of this traditional Cumbrian pub."

The traditional, two-storey detached riverside inn, overlooking Stone Gill, has recently been refurbished.

It has six en suite bedrooms and the ground floor has a 32-cover lounge and bar with a feature stone fireplace and a 50-cover restaurant with a beamed ceiling, which overlooks the river.

There is a private beer garden and guest car parking.

The property also includes a two bedroom apartment suitable for use as accommodation for a manager or owner-operator.

It is on the market with Christie & Co.
