Country House Rescue Revisits

LIVING CHANNEL – Saturdays from 16 January, 8.30pm

Ruth Watson revisits the country house estates one year on, to see how they have progressed. The house owners needed to diversify or face the prospect of losing their homes, but not all of them wanted to listen. The houses ranged from a £25 million stately home to a 30 room Tudor mansion and some had never been seen or open to the public before. This series gives a glimpse into some truly rare and historical houses, as well as human drama and conflict when Ruth’s very straight talking advice conflicts with the family’s often romantic views of their home. Have the owners taken Ruth’s advice and prevented the houses from financial ruin?
