Sarah Beeny will lead a new Channel 4 series, New country lives, follow families as they trade the urban rat race for country life – and now you can apply to take part.
Following on from the success of The new life in the countryside of Sarah Beeny, the 20-part series will see households embark on a simpler, slower way of life. Whether it’s starting their own artisan food business or turning a dilapidated property into a restaurant, Sarah will help families negotiate country life and integrate into the local community.
According to recent polls, 50% of Britons dream of owning a smallholding, while more than half of city dwellers aged 18-34 want to move to the countryside. With more people expected to start over in rural areas than ever before, the show will give viewers insight into how they can make their dreams come true.
Talk about New lives in the countryside, Sarah says, “We are really excited to be working with Outline Productions on this new series. It’s a fantastic opportunity to share experiences and follow creative, entrepreneurial and ultimately inspiring campaign stories.

Along with the new show, Channel 4 also announced that The new life of Sarah Beeny in the countryside was returned to service for a third season, with a Christmas special also in the works.
Laura Mansfield, Managing Director of Outline Productions, added: “We are delighted that following the success of The new life of Sarah Beeny in the countryside over two seasons, Channel 4 commissioned this accompanying daytime series as well as a season renewal. The original idea really tapped into so many people’s desire to leave the urban rat race behind for a different life in the countryside, and we hope this new series will be an inspiring and entertaining take on what reality really is!
The new life of Sarah Beeny in the countryside saw Sarah, along with her husband Graham Swift and their four sons, renovate a former semi-derelict dairy farm surrounded by 220 acres of sprawling farmland to build their dream home – a modern, carbon-neutral stately home.
Highlights of the ambitious construction project included test drives of rural businesses such as cheese making, chilli farming and cider making, and the planting of 1,000 saplings to improve biodiversity. We can’t wait to see what the new season has in store for us!
