The fourth series opens with Viscount and Viscountess Brookeborough of Colebrooke Park, Northern Ireland. Having rescued it from ruin, the couple have lived in the neo-classical mansion in County Fermanagh for thirty years, sustaining their home by hosting shooting parties. Can Simon turn the fortunes of the house around and persuade Lord and Lady Brookeborough to open up their home?

    Thank goodness they have changed the presenter – the previous woman was awful. Her advice was distinctly suspect (from a professional point of view) and her consulting/bedside manner was not always appropriate to the circumstances. Hope Mr Davis does a better job.

    At least one place that I know of that she “rescued” has since gone bust! QED…….

    Suggest people call in the real experts rather than bumble around on telly with amateurs.
