Property Description

The Golden Lion Hotel originally dates from the 19th Century as a traditional Coaching Inn in the heart of the Cambridgeshire market town of St Ives.The hotel is referred to as one a "leading hotel" in St Ives in the 1893 travel book 'The Official Guide to the Great Eastern Railway'. The Inn boasts many period features throughout including:History of the TownThe St Ives district has been inhabited since Stone Ages, where the remains of a Roman villa have been found. The first Anglo-Saxon settlers are believed to have arrived in the 5th or 6th century, where they names their settlement Slepe - meaning muddy. The original Anglo-Saxon settlement was at the west end of the modern town we know today.The present parish church of All Saints which is just a short distance from us, was rebuilt in the 15th century, which some say is on the site of an old Anglo-Saxon church.During the 17th & 18th centuries St Ives became an key waterway route. Lighters, or horse-drawn barges to you and I, were used to bring coal from the port of Kings Lynn before returning back with corn. Herbert Norris, a local historian, wrote in 1888: "St Ives was formerly the centre of a great river traffic. I have seen the river so covered with barges, that boys could walk across the river near the Quay on their tops".
