Twelve families compete to win a house in a beautiful village in the Yorkshire Dales.
Each week, two of them move into the community and set about doing things that they believe will benefit the village and impress the residents. At the end of the week, the village holds a ballot to decide who should come back at the end of the series. In the final two episodes, the village decides who should win the house and the rural life they all desire.
This format launched on Channel 4 in 2011.
