Alistair Appleton, Jules Hudson, Nicki Chapman and Jonnie Irwin are on hand to help prospective buyers find their dream home in the countryside.
Jules Hudson helps an active couple return to their roots in Shropshire, looking for a property to meet their £350,000 budget, and heads into the Shropshire Hills.
Margherita Taylor heads to rural Lincolnshire with a decisive mother and son-in-law to help them find a comfortable country property for £650,000 to house three generations of their family, as well as providing a home for their much-loved horses. While the search gathers pace, Margherita takes in the splendour of Grimsthorpe Castle, the last stately home built by the famous early 18th-century country house architect Sir John Vanbrugh.
Jules Hudson takes the reins of a rural property search in Gloucestershire with a horse-loving husband and wife who have a £1.2 million budget and a desire to upscale their country lifestyle. Along the way, Jules visits the Cotswold herb garden of Davina Wynne-Jones, daughter of late renowned garden designer Rosemary Verey, from whom the Prince of Wales sought advice for his gardens at Highgrove.
Nicki Chapman is helping a couple with a £400,000 budget fulfil their dream of escaping to the Norfolk countryside and find a home where top priorities are a large kitchen and space for them to keep rescue animals. While in the county, Nicki visits the National Collection of Lavender at Caley Mill, home to over a hundred different lavender varieties, where she takes in the spectacular sight of the fields in full bloom.
Margherita Taylor is helping an outgoing couple who hope their £400,000 budget will fund their escape to the wide, open space of south Wales - and also house their huge collection of superhero memorabilia. While in the region, Margherita heads to the Gower Peninsula and walks the marshland around the Burry Estuary with a sheep farmer whose family looks after their enormous flock in this challenging tidal landscape, producing lamb with a very unique provenance in the process.
Jules Hudson is country property shopping in Hampshire with a buyer who has an £875,000 budget and a firm wish to return to her family roots, which is why she has brought her cousin along for support. Away from their garden-focused house hunt, Jules visits Mottisfont Abbey and is treated to a tour of the historic rose garden, home to a collection of over 700 different varieties, some of which are rare and centuries old.
Nicki Chapman is on a house-hunting mission in rural Worcestershire with a couple who want their £475,000 pounds to buy them a characterful family home that delivers 'wow factor' and the potential to work from home. Nicki has picked a perfect time to be in the county, as she gets to see how harvesting fields of delphiniums to make flower confetti is both a blooming business and a riot of colour on one historic family farm.
