Jack Boult, a former rally driver, and his second wife Harriet, who used to be a nurse, move from the bustle of London to start a new life in a cottage in the Somerset countryside, together with Jack's children Freddy and Tom. With the help of Lady Patricia Broughall, a local landowner, and Hilly, a girl who lives in a railway carriage in the woods, they become involved in tackling various environmental issues such as badger-baiting and horse-stealing.

The twelve episodes of Series 2 were filmed in two separate blocks 2.1 to 2.6 and 2.7 to 2.12 with different crews and different copyright dates (1991 for the first block and 1992 for the second block). It was originally intended to broadcast episodes 2.1 to 2.6 as a separate series in 1991 but it was delayed by coverage of the Gulf War. Instead, all twelve episodes were broadcast as a single series on consecutive weeks in 1992. See more »

Truly great series and lovely concept! Alderton and Collins were surely the greatest on screen actual man and wife pairing since Burton and Taylor. To that end,they convey so well in this,an escape to the rural idyll that so many of us urbanites desperately seek. A genuine life worth living. Beyond the mundane Rat Race and grind in which most of us today just survive in. This, along with certain other great series which also aired through the 80s and 90's, such as 'The Darling buds of May' and 'Lovejoy', certainly helped form what was a Golden age of family TV! All of these series superbly cast and equally well written. Overflowing with buckets of charm and sentimental nostalgia. Nowadays,certainly in my opinion at least, all totally deserving of a revamp and resurrection into Britains telly wasteland! Great stuff!!
