Owner’s Description (2019 Yorkshire.com Listing)
NOTE – this property is under new ownership, however visitors may find elements of this 2019 description useful.
A 300-year old, charming and historic townhouse, Newton House is the only Four Gold Star, AA guesthouse in Knaresborough and with all the amenities you would expect of a quality accommodation that includes traditional values and friendly hospitality. Owner Denise Carter provides a personal welcome and daily attention. Her experience includes many years at The English Tourist Board and operating a previous guest house in Harrogate. Denise’s love of all things natural including regular foraging trips, a pets welcome policy and fresh local ingredients in all her cooking makes a refreshing change from the ‘branded’ world of accommodation.
There are 12 roomy rooms providing everything you could need for a comfortable night’s stay. Each has its own bathroom with complimentary Arran Aromatics toiletries. In addition to the traditional hospitality tray, flat screen TV with Freeview, and mini bar there’s a DAB radio and FREE Wireless Internet access.
The award-winning breakfasts are full of goodness and healthy ingredients, most of which are sourced locally or homemade on the premises by Denise including jams, sourdough bread and other favourites such as championship-winning black pudding and locally cured bacon and free-range eggs.
Newton House is the winner of the 2019 Yorkshire Post and Deliciouslyorkshire Taste Awards for the ‘Best Yorkshire Breakfast’, has the AA Best Breakfast Award and specialises in ‘Slow’ breakfasts. Denise is passionate about serving food of the highest quality to her guests, and consistently supports a range of local producers. She is also passionate about animal welfare and non-intensive farming, as well as the importance of taste and texture, serving food that satisfies the senses.
As winner of the Channel 4’s ‘Four in a Bed’ TV show, Denise demonstrated her passion for all things natural and seeking to protect the environment. Newton House has declared itself a Palm Oil Free Zone that aims to support international initiatives to reduce the use of palm oil in everyday activities. The initiative is all part of the award-winning bed and breakfast’s overall eco-friendly policy to find better ways to deliver sustainable products as part of its service.
