A Harrogate guesthouse owner and her award-winning Kings Road bed and breakfast are to appear in this week's episode of Channel 4's Four in A Bed.Marie Lock, who owns Scotia House, will be seen in an episode of the long-running series on Tuesday, May 10.The Harrogate hotelier will be shown competing with bed and breakfast owners from across the north in this popular show.Marie, who was actually filmed for the programme over a two-week period last autumn, said: “I got good feedback from the other contestants on Scotia House, especially the cleanliness and my excellent breakfasts, and they loved Harrogate.” But Marie was surprised at how much work was involved in filming just one episode of the show. She said: “I was asked by the production company to take part,after a preliminary screen test, but it was actually quite a gruelling ordeal.
“It took us two full weeks to film and that was working from very early in the morning until late at night. Obviously it also involved a lot of travelling as the other contestants’ bed and breakfasts which were spread out across the north - Alston, Blackpool and Edinburgh.”
Now that the programme has been screened, Marie has decided to put the five-bedroom Victorian house, which she renovated herself and has run as a bed and breakfast for five years, on the market.
As for whether Marie and Scotia House won their episode of Four in a Bed, readers will just have to watch the show!
