OUR Yorkshire Farm's Amanda Owen has confirmed her family are leaving their iconic farmhouse.
The shepherdess, husband Clive, 66, and their nine children currently live at Ravenseat, which features in the hit Channel 5 show.
However, the family only rents the farmhouse and have been planning to get a place of their own for a while.
The couple have been looking at a derelict farmhouse just a mile away from their current abode, Anty Johns, in Upper Swaledale.
Speaking about her living situation and renting a property with so much history, Amanda told The Home Page: "You feel very temporary like we're just part of the bigger story before it's passed on to someone else.
"Each of the buildings on the farm are named after people who are long gone, but whose memory lives on and it's important to keep the heritage of the place going."
She added: "A house is a house, but living somewhere wild, like here, really shapes your character.
"You are facing a battle against the elements here which makes you more independent, and it gives you the freedom to be yourself.”
Amanda and Clive's plans to move have already featured on Our Yorkshire Farm, and she previously said: "When the opportunity came up and I saw that ‘for sale’ sign go up, it was like a no brainer.
"The opportunity to get that doesn’t come up that often. I needed to buy it because it’s security, for us and for the children."
However, last month Amanda gave fans an update and revealed they've already hit a stumbling block.
Unfortunately, their plans to renovate the building have been put on hold as they await planning permission from the local council.
Our Yorkshire Farm airs on Channel 5.
