A Woolly Weekend at Kelly House,Lifton
Kelly House recently featured in the Channel 4 TV programme "Country House Rescue"
Kelly House is a Grade I listed building and has stood overlooking the mists of Bodmin Moor since the 1740s. But years of neglect due to lack of funds mean that behind its crumbling façade lie walls plagued by dry rot, ceilings bowed by damp and a roof that desperately needs replacing.
