Episode 7
 
This week Liz Bonnin is witnessing one of Britain’s greatest natural wonders as she takes a trip down the might river Severn during one of its massive tidal bores - and meets the surfers who say there is nothing else like it.
 
Ben Fogel takes his six-year-old son Ludo on a Cornish adventure - where Ludo get the chance to learn to sail and the pair enjoy some rock pooling - all on a stretch of coastline close to Ben’s heart.
 
We also return to the Yorkshire Dales and the farm of shepherdess Amanda Owen - where she, husband Clive and their nine children are preparing for the annual country show. 
 
 
 
Series overview
 
Countrywise: Guide To Britain sets out to inspire us all to explore the beautiful British countryside – with its hidden gems, natural wonders and great escapes.
 
Across the series Ben Fogle and Liz Bonnin will be our guides to the great outdoors - along with some well-known faces who'll share their love of their countryside with us.
 
The series also meets the people who call our countryside home – like mum of nine, best selling author and shepherdess Amanda Owen, as she welcomes yet another new arrival down on her Yorkshire Dales farm.
