Sarah Beeny’s New Life In The Country

Sarah Beeny's New Life In The Country

Britain’s favourite property expert, Sarah Beeny, her husband Graham Swift and their four boys have all quit their lives in London to start anew in the country. They’ve bought a semi-derelict former dairy farm in Somerset where, with 220 acres of land available, they’re immersing themselves in everything rural life has to offer. They’re halfway through building the house of their dreams – a modern, energy-efficient English stately home. With the shell of the building already complete, in this second series they tackle the interior, one room at a time. In the final episode of the series, Sarah and Graham transform the kitchen from bare shell to the heart of their family home. But from the outset, they have differing views on what will make the perfect kitchen – will they be able to reach agreement and come up with something they’ll both enjoy spending time in? For Graham, an important part of the family’s move to Somerset has been sharing his life-long love of fishing with his sons. He heads 20 miles west of their farm to a smokery, where he learns how to smoke his home-caught fish. Graham and Sarah’s four boys are in a family band, called The Entitled Sons. With the help of music teacher Sydney, they’ve been practising for their first-ever live performance at a local pub. The group began with the four brothers, but Graham – a musician in his youth – seems keen to rekindle his boyhood dreams of becoming a rock god. Their gig is fast approaching, and the pressure is on to get their songs in shape. Meanwhile, Sarah and Graham invite a team of metal detectorists to the farm to check out the variety of treasures they’ve unearthed. While their new home doesn’t have much history, the land it is built on does, and Sarah has a plan to harness that history, giving some of their most prized finds pride of place in the new kitchen, transforming the trinkets into art to hang on the walls. The kitchen may be complete, but the family’s grand plans aren’t just yet, as Sarah and Graham reveal what more they hope to achieve in their new life in the country.
