Fed up with living in a busy city or town? We're looking for contributors who want to escape to the country.

BBC One and Two

Alistair Appleton, Jules Hudson, Nicki Chapman, Jonnie Irwin, Sonali Shah, Ginny Buckley and Margherita Taylor help house buyers who want to swap city living for a home in the country

In each programme we discover why they want to move, what they're looking for and which part of Britain they've set their heart on. In their chosen area, we show them three idyllic country properties that match their search criteria and their budget. The last option is the 'mystery' house, a property that challenges our buyers' perceptions about what they really want.

During their journey, our buyers also have the chance to enjoy country life. They might visit beautiful local towns, tour iconic British homes and monuments or gain hands-on experience of traditional rural crafts and pursuits. At the end of the programme, our house hunters discuss all the properties they've seen and decide which one is the best option for them.

If you live in a hectic city, long for the tranquillity of the countryside and are seriously thinking of moving, then please apply. We could help you find your perfect rural home.

Escape to the Country is produced for the BBC by Boundless Productions
