Sarah Beeny A new show following property expert Sarah Beeny and her family as they move from city to country is in production for Channel 4

Outline Productions is making Sarah Beeny’s New Life In The Country – an 8 x 60 – which will chart Beeny, her husband and four sons as they move from London to a semi-derelict former dairy farm in Somerset, with 220 acres of land on which they plan to build a carbon-neutral home as well as rewilding sections of the farm. 

Beeny said: “I think I’ve always quite enjoyed the buzz from change and mountainous challenges and moving our whole family lock stock and barrel from city to country and re-inventing our whole life has certainly been that. I am so aware of how lucky we are to be able to do something like this, but it’s been a life changing experience. 

"But ultimately I do believe you only live once and if you can make a dream real you should try and journey down that path if you can.”

Kate Thomas, commissioning editor for Channel 4, added: ‘This sunny, escapist and hugely feel-good series taps directly into the daydreams that are, now more than ever, keeping us all going. A longing for a simpler, slower way of life. Closer contact with family, and a more meaningful relationship with nature.”

The executive producers are Laura Mansfield and Helen Veale; the series producer/director is Guy Gilbert and the director Jonathan Profaska.
