Escape to The Country

About the Show

About the Show

Surrounded by concrete and noisy traffic, most city people are tempted to quit the rat race for the peace of the countryside. In this series, experts Jules Hudson, Alistair Appleton, Aled Jones and Denise Nurse help people to achieve that dream, finding property with potential and guiding prospective buyers through every aspect of buying, selling and moving. Each episode follows one big move, and with everything from snug, chocolate-box cottages to medieval grandeur, it’s clear that everyone has their own idea about the perfect country escape. The movers featured include a mother and daughter unit with clashing opinions, and a couple leaving suburbia behind in pursuit of the perfect high-end holiday let business.

I love this show. Sometimes I get a bit annoyed when couples who don't have any kids are looking at what seem quite spacious houses and say that there isn't enough room. I also hate it when the couple have clearly stated that they want to move to the country for privacy and the mystery house they are shown is communal living. This happens repeatedly. I mean, why????

Love this show, but I agree with John61, we would like to know at the end if they buy or not. And we would love for example a show revisited a couple of years down the track to know if they found what they wanted, still leave in the country...

I love this program, but Lifestyle channel needs to lift their game! Now we just have a generic blurb for the description of the show. From reading the detail, I don't know what county it is in, so I don't know if I have seen it or not, or if it is a particular episode I really would like to watch again. Come on LIfestyle, we pay more than enough for the few Foxtel channels we watch. Do a better job of description please.

We love this shown BUT, cannot stand Jonnie Irwin. He is rude to the guests, puts them down constantly, thinks he is funny but is condescending and how dare they not love absolutely everything about every property he shows them! Compare his style to Aled Jones who is a delight to watch. In fact all the others are entertaining and informative and well worth watching!

Love this show! We just made our own escape from Sydney to the Adelaide Hills, and now love living in our old stone Mill. Inspiration totally.

Love the show but when are we going to get newer episodes or follow ups of some of the people who have purchased properties

Watch it as often as I can find it. Love the show especially with Alistair and Jules. Such fun with those two!

Have watched it since the days of Catherine Gee. Currently watching new HD episodes in Sydney. As enjoyable as ever.
