It's been a year since renowned businesswoman and trouble-shooter Ruth Watson advised the owners of stately British homes how to diversify and raise revenue to secure the future of their unique properties for generations to come. Who knows, you might even pick up some handy hints regarding what to do with any large country manors you might have lying idle... Now she's back, checking up on some familiar faces to see if they took her advice or carried on regardless. Last year Ruth met Mary-Anne and Alastair Robb, owners of Cothay, a medieval manor house in Somerset. Built in 1485, Cothay Manor is a superb example of medieval architecture. Fifteen years ago, Alastair and Mary-Anne Robb bought Cothay Manor and worked tirelessly to restore the house to its former glory. To try to raise revenue they opened their beautiful gardens to the public, but despite their best efforts, the Robbs have never made a profit. In addition, they have yet to decide which of their four children will inherit the house, which could leave a million-pound tax bill legacy and cause a family row. The pair clashed over plans for tearooms and toilets but, one year on, did they work together to transform Cothay into a sculpture park, in time for a special garden party? What what!
