Love in the Countryside returns for a second series
Presenter Sara Cox grew up on her family’s pedigree beef farm in Lancashire and understands just how difficult it is to find love when you’re wedded to the land. Across this six-episode series she’s playing cupid to help seven rural romantics find the partner of their dreams.
Living in remote, rural locations and working long hours are just two of the hurdles our seven lonely hearts face in their search for a romantic partner. To give them a step up the love-ladder they each made online dating profiles, inviting people from across the UK to write them old-fashioned love letters. They choose their favourites to meet face-to-face at a speed dating event before inviting their top three back home to spend a weekend with them trying out country life. Our lonely hearts hope for everlasting love, but can they navigate the bumpy road to romance?
In the first episode, we meet 23-year-old, Grace, a dairy and sheep farmer from Wales and 44-year-old Martin, a dairy farmer from Yorkshire. Both are looking for a partner who will fall in love with not only them but also their way of life.
