Knaresborough's Newton House B&B is the winner of the latest Channel 4 TV Show Four in a Bed.

Owner, Denise Carter and her colleague Jackie Fennell, appeared in the reality programme and were tasked with visiting and judging the other properties as part of the format for the show.

Denise said: "We had a super time during filming of the show, getting to know our fellow contestants and seeing their establishments was interesting and good fun. It was great to get such high scores and then to become the winner is fabulous.  I have never won anything ever not even a raffle.”

The programme’s format invites four sets of B&B owners to throw open their doors and take turns to stay with one another – and pay what they consider fair for their stay. The winner of the competition is the B&B that is judged to be the best value for money.

Denise added: “We were sworn to secrecy until the show was aired but now we can announce the result. Everyone said that they really enjoyed their stay at Newton House and would like to come back. It has put Newton House on the map and especially highlighted our food, our quality and my team of Newton House Ladies.,

The competition was shown last week from Monday until Friday when the 300-year-old townhouse was announced as the winning B&B. The other contestants paid full price for their stay and a winner’s plaque presented to Denise and Jackie at the end of the final episode.
