Newton House introduces Beat Obesity Breaks

Newton House, a four-AA-gold-star hotel in Knaresborough, Yorkshire has launched an initiative to help guests achieve a healthier lifestyle.

Guests visiting the 12-bedroom hotel will be offered a weigh-in on arrival and departure; healthier dishes and smaller portions; the opportunity to ‘work out' with the housekeeping staff; dietician consultations and a morning walk or jog around Knaresborough.

They will also be allocated a second floor room, encouraging them to walk up 40 stairs.

Newton House was recently named as North Yorkshire County Council Trading Standards' Healthier Choices Gold Award Winner.

Owner Denise Carter said: "In North Yorkshire, 67.9% of the adult population is categorised as overweight or obese where the national average is 63.8%. When I heard these statistics it seemed right to partner with North Yorkshire's campaign to help to combat obesity and its effects on people's wellbeing, as well as the strain it puts on health budgets. Beat Obesity Breaks are available to both leisure and business visitors to the area. We hope that guests will leave Newton House in a healthier frame of mind and body"

The Beat Obesity Breaks cost from £36.50 per person per night based on two people sharing a double room, including breakfast.
