Owner, Denise Carter and her colleague Jackie Fennell, appeared in the filming of the latest series of this popular reality TV show, and had the task of 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.
The competition was shown on Channel 4 at 5pm from Monday, May 16 and each evening until Friday, May 20 when Newton House, which is located at 5/7 York Place, was announced as the winning B&B.
The other contestants paid full price for their stay at Newton House and a winner’s plaque presented to Denise and Jackie at the end of the final episode.
