Escape to the Country

North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire

Review by:
Jane Rackham

There are those viewers who cannot see the appeal of watching people travelling around an area viewing endless properties in the quest for a perfect new home, but most of us do enjoy taking a peek inside country houses, even if the chances of our upping sticks for a similar rural idyll are as low as moving to Mars.

In this edition, Nicki Chapman undertakes a house hunt in North Yorkshire for a pair of keen walkers who have a budget of £400,000 to spend on their dream home. She also learns more about England’s oldest horse race, the Kiplingcotes Derby, a four-mile race over farm lanes and tracks.
