Escape to the Country

Escape to the Country is a long running rural property programme, which helps prospective buyers find a dream home in the country

In each episode we discover why they want to move, what they’re looking for and which part of Britain they’ve set their heart on. In their chosen area, prospective buyers are shown a selection of classic country properties that match their aspirations and budget. The last property to be shown is an option that challenges their perceptions of what they think they want.

During the property viewing journey, the buyers also have the chance to experience country life; visiting local towns and monuments while often gaining hands-on experiences of traditional rural crafts and pursuits in the hope that these encounters will help in their decision whether to escape to the country. Escape to the Country first aired on BBC One in 2002 and is now in production for its 19th series.
