By Angela Green, Content Executive, H&C News: Knaresborough B&B adding Brazilian flair.
Newton House in Knaresborough, a 12-bedroom B&B is now being run by a new management team following the retirement of Denise Carter, owner of the business for the past twelve years. Raphael and Cici Carreira are the new managers following its acquisition by Lamb and Flag Enterprises.
The Brazilian-born couple bring a new approach to the B&B, whilst retaining the high-quality service and locally sourced food for its English breakfasts, synonymous with Newton House.
Already, there’s new Latin excitement on the breakfast menu with the addition of Brazilian gluten-free tapioca crepes and Portuguese omelette options, alongside the traditional breakfast. More ideas will emerge as the pair begin to bring their own personal ideas and expertise into play.
Lamb and Flag Enterprises have retained the excellent existing Newton House team and will continue to operate the business as is, whilst plans for refurbishment in 2023 are prepared to expand the services offered within the property.
Richard Venable, Lamb and Flag Enterprises director said: “It is business as usual at the moment until we line up our plans for the longer term. We are confident that our guests will continue to enjoy the same warm welcome they have become accustomed to at Newton House, with Raphael, Cici and their friendly and efficient team.”
Newton House is open all year round and is very near to the centre of Knaresborough with its variety of attractions including Knaresborough Castle, Mother Shipton’s Cave, great independent cafes and restaurants, and the famous railway viaduct over the River Nidd.
