Our Yorkshire Farm stars Clive and Amanda Owen are set for a major home renovations.
The famous couple have finally received planning permission to convert their derelict cottage into a two-bedroom home.
The much-loved stars of the Channel 5 show purchased High Smithy Holme – which is a remote farmhouse in the Swaledale parish of Muker- back in 2020.
The property is only a stone’s throw away from their now famous sheep farm, Ravenseat.
Clive and Amanda bought the property – which dates back to the early 18th century – after it was left empty for almost 60 years.
And after a two-year battle, the couple are now set to start the process of turning derelict cottage into a two-bed home.
It comes after they were given permission from The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority’s planning officers.
According to Daily Star, the officers recommended the application for approval – commenting that the plans ‘struck a good balance’ between conserving the building’s historic character and the requirements of modern habitation.
They also revealed that they were supportive of the farm being brought back to life.
However, some conditions are still being imposed on the property.
Clive and Amanda will still have to abide by the installation of bat boxes on a sycamore tree in the grounds.
The floor plan of the couple’s tiny new property includes a living room, a hall and stairs, a lounge in what was once a stable, and a kitchen area.
There is also a utility and a shower room, as well as two upstairs bedrooms.
Due to the fact the property only has two bedrooms, it means that it will be an unsuitable place for the Owen family of 11 to live.
The Owens also own a 17th-century cottage called The Firs, which is rented as a holiday let.
