A village pub is set to feature in the new series of Channel 4 reality show Four in a Bed.

Marius Pretorius and Sarah Harris who run The Stag and Huntsman, in Hambleden, near Marlow, will be contestants on the latest series of the show which sees bed and breakfast and hotel owners taking it in turns to stay in each other's premises before giving their verdicts – good and bad.

Marius and Sarah, who run the business on behalf of the Culden Faw Estate, are looking forward to showing off the inn on national television.

Marius said: “Four in a Bed had been contacting me for some time. Having discussed the proposal with the estate manager, Alex Dick, we came to the conclusion that all publicity was good publicity so decided to go for it.

“Whilst we are happy with what we do here, we never know how we will be portrayed until we see the programme for the first time.”

Filming for the show took place in July last year and the pair admitted it was a nerve-wracking ordeal visiting the three other establishments as well as welcoming guests to their own venue.

Marius added: “There is a lot of pressure to come across and remain professional, given that you know people will be dissecting your every move.

“We felt win or lose, always remain professional and put the needs of the business first.”

The first part of the show sees the pair transported to a hotel in North Yorkshire before returning to their own hotel to welcome the other contestants.

The programme sees each hotel owner paying what they think is acceptable for their stay – with the winner the establishment with the best value for money.

Sarah added: “As we all did with the other hotels, they came to our business and made comments, harsh or kind.

“We know nothing of what has been said on camera about me, Marius or The Stag and Huntsman so watching it on the day will be just as eye opening.”

Filming also included Marius and Sarah taking their guests to Marlow’s Historic Rowing Club.

The remainder of the show will see them stopping at hotels in Manchester and Gloucestershire and giving their verdicts on their stays to camera before the winner is revealed at the end of the programme, which will be broadcast on Channel 4 from March 18, with The Stag and Huntsman episode showing on March 21.
