Dick and Angel Strawbridge continue their adventures in France for a third three part series of Escape to the Chateau. It’s two and a half years since the couple swapped their flat in Southend for a 19th century Chateau in France – which cost them only £280,000.
The intrepid couple have spent the time converting the Chateau De La Motte Husson from a derelict sleeping beauty into the fairy tale castle of their dreams. But with only half of the 45 rooms completed, there is still a huge amount of work to be done – including growing their fledgling events business, converting the outbuildings, and bringing the walled garden back to life.
With more than 20 rooms still in a state of serious disrepair, Angel wants to create a special retreat for the whole family – with plans for a stripes and safari theme. But do they have a serious roof problem? Is Angel’s purchase of a clapped-out Citroen van a good idea? And what have the local tree surgeons done to the lime trees at the front of the building?
