Moving to the country for DC2 - what pram do I need?

So middle of London for DD and have an iCandy peach which was mainly driven by the fact that it would fit in our boot and was nice to push.

We are getting towards exchanging on a house in a village in the middle of the country prior to DC2 being born and car boot space should be fine / storage space will no longer be an issue.

The village has some pavements but lots of nice walks on the common and down woodland tracks. Also our new house is a good way down an unadopted track so a bit bumpy.

I am hoping that this DC likes to sleep in the pram so would like a decent carrycot and due in Feb so will be chilly so would like it to fit a good sleeping bag in. I would also like rear facing if possible when it converts to a pushchair. I will also need to drive DD to nursery so it will probably need car seat adapters for the maxi cosi. In an ideal world I would be able to put some kind of toddler set on it for when DD gets tired when put or a walk.

Not fussed about weight or looks or cost although it will occasionally be taken to the nearest town in the car/ train for shopping. I don't know if my dream pram exists or having never lived in the countryside before, if I have it all wrong with the main requirements for the pram.

Help please!

I would suggest a Scandinavian buggy, because they are usually made for all terrains and cold weather. Not sure they will work with your car seat though.

We have a brio buggy and I love it.

The brios looks great - do you know of any UK stockists where you can try them out?

Uppababy vista?
Large carrycot, maxi-cosi compatible and toddler seat goes both forward and rear facing.
Not sure how it goes off road as only been out with it once as baby only 5 days old.
Reviewed well on which.

A TFK Joggster Twist with Multi X carrycot / seat and the toddler seat underneath?
Or a Bugaboo Donkey?
Beyond that I am struggling to think of anything with decent off road capability which parent faces and had a toddler option. The Mountain Buggy +One is fab and would give you parent facing for the first six months.
TBH I think I would be adding a Blossom Kit to your Peach for when you need a double pushchair and then get just a single off road pushchair for the rougher terrain - maybe a Bugaboo Buffalo, an iCandy Peach Jogger, an Easywalker Mini, Britax Affinity (maybe)??
