A couple has spoken about the joy and despair they experienced during the renovation of a 19th-century estate in north Warwickshire.

Dean Poulton, 35, an architect, and Borja De Maqua, 33, a former estate agent and surveyor, bought the 2.5-acre property in Coleshill, a town near Birmingham, in 2019 and have spent the last three years working on it.
