Episode 1: Escape to the Chateau

Summary

Dick, Angel, Arthur and Dorothy share more enchanting tales from the Chateau, as they continue the renovation of their 19th-century fairytale home and grounds. With weddings and events on hold for the second year, Dick and Angel bite the bullet and make the big decision to tackle the exterior of the Chateau. The roof and outside walls are their biggest project to date and the Chateau quickly becomes a building site

Review

You may be feeling a bit smug that, with the help of Escape to the Chateau: Make Do and Mend, Dick and Angel’s practical help spin-off series, you finally managed to do some of those little DIY jobs around the house. But when you live in a massive and slightly run-down 19th-century home, the DIY is on a whole different scale. 
With events and weddings on hold for yet another year, the Strawbridges decide to tackle the exterior of the chateau and turn the upstairs of the original coach house (now home to Angel’s parents Jenny and Steve) into a luxurious bedroom suite with a steam room. So Dick’s busily installing sun tubes while Angel’s making bespoke wallpaper. I bet that puts your drain unblocking achievement into perspective. 
What never ceases to amaze is that, despite the stresses and neverending to-do list, the Strawbridges still seem able to have fun and create happy memories in their home. Winter has turned the chateau into an ice palace, so there are snowball fights, snow angel-making competitions and goose egg-collecting expeditions to enjoy.
