During Tuesday’s Escape to the Country, property expert Jules Hudson was on a mission to find dog-groomer Sam a two-bedroom cottage in Suffolk with a budget of £320,000. The mum-of-two wanted to relocate her business to Suffolk to be closer to her daughter, Georgina, who accompanied her on the house hunt. Jules seemed to impress the pair with the first two house viewings, although, when it came to the mystery house, it was a different story.
Sam explained to Jules that she was looking for a cottage with two bedrooms.
She also wanted a property that had outbuildings for her business, as well as parking for her customers.
The first property Jules took Sam and Georgina to was a quirky property and at a first-glance, Sam said: “I like it.”
The mother and daughter appeared to love the first property and Georgina told Jules that she could see her mum living there.
It was also priced under budget at £260,000.
It seems that the duo was easy to impress as they also loved the second property.
Commenting on the lounge, Georgina said: “It’s so cosy.”
“It’s lovely, a good size double,” Sam noticed about the bedroom.
The cottage was priced at £285,000, much to their surprise.
“Happy?” property expert Jules asked. To which Sam replied: “Definitely.”
However, when it came to the mystery house, it was clear to see that Sam was left less than impressed.
Before they had even stepped foot inside the house, Georgina commented: “Looks interesting.”
Jules went on to quiz: “Your mum’s looking a bit quiet.”
“It’s not a house I would pick,” Sam responded as she looked at the outside of the property.
“That surprises me,” Jules added. “I thought this might be your thing.”

“The location and where it is, is perfect, I’ll be interested to see what it looks inside,” Sam continued.
Jules went on to explain that the mystery house does have its challenges as “it is a bit of a project”.
As they began the viewing, Sam and Georgina appeared to like the living room as she critiqued: “It is nice.”
Jules tried to show Sam the potential the property could have and what she could do with it, although, she didn’t seem convinced.
Weighing up the positives and the negatives, Sam concluded: “I really like the location of this property, for business purposes it works really well.
“I think it probably would be too big a project for me, if I wanted to get the business up and running quickly I wouldn’t have time to do it sadly.
“Also, for me, this move is a new chapter and I did say I wanted to slow down a little bit, so I think that answers my question for me.”
In the end, when it came to the crunch, Sam seemed keen on the second cottage that she viewed and told Jules that she was even thinking of putting an offer in.
Escape to the Country airs weekdays at 3pm on BBC One.
