Am I insane?

I was watching “Britain’s best parent” and there was a family on there who had sold their house, left their jobs and bought acres of land to live on.
I was watching it thinking it looked amazing (although wondered what they slept in etc!). Has anyone done this? Is it as amazing as it looks?!

Sounds like a nightmare to me.

So they don’t have a house? Surely they’re not just shitting in a field??

Sounds sublime! I’d do it in a hurt beat but DP is the king of Tech and won’t even come camping ‘cos WiFi’ hmm

My brothers done this though! And yes he is shitting in a field but I suppose at least he is now shitting in his own field, for now.
It’s just him and his latest lady love though.
I would like house/toilets etc personally

The novelty of this lifestyle would wear thin verrrry quickly.

Ugh sounds horrible, I like having a roof (and a toilet, bed, etc.).

I just think it would be a huge pain in the arse in a lot of ways. And in winter? Horrific!

Oh my It is the stuff of nightmares to me.

I couldn’t even do more than two nights in a tent with my ex several years ago when we were madly in love, half cut no kids and at it like rabbits.

With our three children and no amenities I would have been clubbing myself over the head with a heavy blunt object by bedtime
