Love in the Countryside
Love in the Countryside is a six part series for BBC Two, following a group of men and women who are struggling to find a partner with whom to share their rural lives. A reliance on the land for their livelihoods, and being based within small rural communities, has limited their chance of finding someone to love.
From farmers to rural vets, the singletons, isolated from the urban dating pool, are ready to not only see if they can meet their match but also to introduce a potential partner to the true realities of life in the countryside.
With many city dwellers longing to escape the rat race, and an unprecedented number migrating from town to country every year in the hope of a different way of life, it is an achievable dream. But what is the reality of adapting to a new ideal away from all the trappings of a town or city, AND potentially finding your perfect match?
Presenter Sara Cox will join the couples along their way as they negotiate getting to know each other, whilst the urban love seekers are grappling with wellies, the wild outdoors and woeful Wi-Fi.
