The new rebranded Orchard Club.

The Newton House Hotel in Knaresborough has rebranded as Orchard Club.

The 12-bedroom hotel, which is situated in a grade II listed building on York Place, was acquired by Lamb and Flag Enterprise Ltd after former owner Denise Carter retired in 2022.

The rebrand is part of a wider plan to create meeting rooms and other facilities for guests and residents, as well as accommodation.

The Newton House Hotel in Knaresborough has rebranded as Orchard Club.

A spokesperson for Orchard Club said:

“The rebrand was prompted by a desire to see the beautiful buildings in York Place improved and utilised further. It’s part of a long-term strategy on the part of Orchard Club to provide enhanced facilities for Knaresborough.

“Over time, the hope is to create additional bedrooms, a café/bistro and spaces available for community hire.”

They added:

“The car park in the former Newton House Hotel will be turned into a beautiful orchard-themed garden dining area with a dozen fruit-bearing trees, providing a haven for wildlife and customers alike.

“Car parking will still be provided at the rear of number 9 York Place, which will itself be used to extend and enhance the hotel facilities.”

Each room in the hotel, which is based on a ‘tranquil orchard’ theme, has been renamed and redecorated with a particular fruit.

Richard Venable, director of Lamb and Flag Enterprise, said:

“Orchard Club is set to be a landmark destination for holidaymakers and business people, as well as a popular cafe and bistro for hotel guests and Knaresborough residents.”

The 300-year-old building, which is rumoured to have been built with stone from Knaresborough Castle, became a hotel in 1981.
