Country House Rescue follows the hotelier and country house expert Ruth Watson as he visits a struggling country house and tries to turn its fortunes by giving advice and suggestions to the owner.
When Ruth Jones first visited Hill Place near Swanmore in Hampshire, owners Will and Rebecca Dobson were struggling to deal with expensive and urgent repairs at the house, as well as criticism of their plans from Will's mother and her siblings. Now Ruth wants to see if schemes to turn Hill Place into an up-market wedding venue have been a success, and to see if the peace deal that she brokered with the family has held.
Alastair and Mary-Anne Robb, owners of Cothay Manor in Somerset, want Ruth's help. They need to plan for the future, but are worried that even sitting down as a family to have a constructive meeting is a bit beyond them. Mary-Ann has been a devoted and highly skilled gardener of the grounds for many years, but is there a way that the family can get more people through the gates to enjoy it - and to spend some money.
