• Sugar Beat, Swainsthorpe

The Sugar Beat Eating House in Swainsthorpe, formerly the Dun Cow, emerged victorious from Four in a Bed in 2015, after fending off three competing establishments, including the Fritton Arms in Fritton. Stevie King and Dave Lovett represented the establishment on the show and said: 'We received really positive feedback from people after the show, some negative too but you can't please everyone.'

• Chimneys bed and breakfast, North Walsham

Jenny Harmer and her B&B in North Walsham featured on Four in a Bed from June 25-29 2012. The couple decided to have a royal theme for the show and re-named their larger B&B rooms The Buckingham Room and The Sandringham Room, styling the smaller twin room The Clarence Room, after the late Queen Mother's home, Clarence House. They also dotted patriotic paraphernalia around their home, sparking the row with a non-native B&B-owning guest.
