One for your diaries ! The Yorkshire Shepherdess is coming folks to Heswall, Well Thornton Hough!  Amanda Owen!

‘Amanda’s life is one of old-fashioned values, hard graft and plenty of love. She, like her life, is extraordinary’ Ben Fogle

Three bestselling books, two hit TV series, 1000 sheep, nine ‘free range’ children, one husband and an assortment of farmyard animals - life for Amanda Owen, the Yorkshire Shepherdess, is anything but dull!
A Sunday Times bestselling author, Amanda’s warm and entertaining accounts of the ups and downs of daily life at Ravenseat, a remote hill farm high in the Yorkshire Dales, have charmed readers everywhere. The hit TV series, Our Yorkshire Farm, featuring the family has captivated more than 2 million viewers each week enthralled by their tough but inspiring way of life.
In Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess, the latest instalment from Ravenseat, Amanda brings readers up-to-date with life on the farm. From tackling the long, brutal winter of 2018, to sharing a love of wild swimming with the children, life at Ravenseat is truly in tune with nature.
Finally the Owen family put down permanent roots in their beloved Swaledale. Ravenseat has been a tenant farm for generations, so when Amanda spots a nearby farmhouse up for sale it’s the perfect opportunity for the family to plan for the future. A full and eventful renovation project ensues, introducing colourful new characters and more than a few hilarious hiccups along the way. With Amanda’s trademark Yorkshire grit and good humour, this is a charming glimpse into a rural way of life unchanged for generations in this Dales community.
