I am addicted to this show. It’s a UK version of House Hunters. They do segments on the local area and showcase the history and local flavor. It’s so calming during this time.
Any other fans out there?

As I’m in the UK, we do watch it, although perversely, we like a lot of the US home shows.

I have not heard of this show but thank you @Piper70 for your recommendation and I am going to search for it and watch it. I love house shows.

I've binged the show so much that I've found myself using a few common phrases such as "bang on". And, due to the other thread about tea and kettles, I always look for the kettle in the kitchens. And because I'm a PSer, I examine all the jewelry. I'm surprised that I've seen so many larger stones (at least by what we've been told is the tendency for smaller stones) in the rings of quite a few of the house hunters. By larger I mean in excess of 1 carat in both colored stones and diamonds.

One of the show's hosts, Nicki Chapman, has a lovely wide 3-stone band but she never keeps her hands still enough to get a really good look at it. How rude :bigsmile:

I cannot believe I’ve been watching this show and never thought to check out the jewelry! Aaagh!! Especially since most of the buyers have healthy budgets.
And I am also fascinated by the vernacular and the difference in pronunciation.

My husband and I love this show, it’s really lovely to watch. Alistair is our favorite host as he doesn’t push as do some of the others.

How do I watch this? Is it on Netflix or Amazon Prime, or Apple TV? I don't have cable anymore.

Speaking of UK home shows, Grand Designs is amazing. It's about people building a dream home that's really unique and ambitious in some way, and usually architecturally significant.

Grand Designs is my favourite!

I have to admit that Escape to the Country doesn't hold my interest. I can't really figure out what the stakes are because the people just go and look at the properties and the show never reveals if they actually bid on any of them, successfully or otherwise.
