Jules Hudson was tasked with finding the perfect property for Kent couple Rebekah and Paul who were looking to move to the Cambridgeshire countryside in the BBC show. However, the Escape to the Country presenter confused the couple by offering up a mystery property that included two houses set in a location they hadn’t considered. 

Rebekah and Paul were looking for a detached three-bedroom property with a budget of £570,000.

The couple was impressed with the second house they visited but Jules wanted to push them out of their comfort zone for the mystery house. 

Jules explained: “For the mystery house, we’re taking our couple out of Cambridgeshire and just over the southwest border to north Bedfordshire.

“Our destination is Yielden, the most rural of the property location we’ve seen so far.”

“Also know as Yelden there is much debate over the pronunciation of the village name with spelling variations on the location signposts depending on the direction you’re travelling,” he continued.

“A pretty and quiet place this location is still within the required distance of a direct train line to London.

“The streets are lined with thatched homes full of history and intrigue and our mystery house is no exception – or should I say mystery houses?”

Jules began the search by bringing the couple to the first coach house before moving on to the main building.

“So look it’s a really interesting little complex,” Jules introduced and Rebekah commented: “Wow.” 

“You’ve got this lovely oak framed coach house with a studio above it, potential gym space underneath it and then we’ve got the house itself,” the presenter added.

“Wow, very nice,” Paul said. “It looks like a beautiful location.”

“It was listed then it was mysteriously delisted and at the moment it’s unfurnished so you can certainly see what you can do with it.”

After taking a look around the main property, Jules took them inside the detached two-storey coach house.

“I’m sure this is not what you were expecting to see,” Jules remarked. 

“Wow, very nice,” Rebekah commented as they walked out onto a terrace overlooking stunning views of the countryside. 

“What a brilliant spot,” Paul said and Jules quipped: “You look a bit bamboozled. Well, we’ll give you time to make sense of it. 

“Let’s go over to have a further look at the garden and finish up with the price.”

The mystery house was on the market for £575,000 and the couple later revealed it was the second property that stole their hearts. 

Discussing the final property, Rebekah said: “The mystery house was fantastic, the location in terms of rural-ness, some fantastic period features but it was just a little too far from family for us.”

Escape to the Country airs on weekdays on BBC One at 3pm.
