Jeremy Clarkson's latest TV show, Clarkson's Farm, has helped to spark a "surge" in searches for homes in the Cotswolds.

The show, which has been described as a "hit" with viewers, has spurred searches of properties in the village of Chadlington to rise by 511%.

The rise in searches was recorded by Rightmove. It said the area saw the biggest surge in interest than anywhere else in Britain in June 2021, when compared to the previous year.

This news comes as Amazon officially confirmed that a second season of the show would be coming to viewers' screens, though it's not yet known when that will be.

It's believed the show may be driving interest from home movers looking to relocate to country towns and villages.

Chipping Norton also saw a rise in searches, which Rightmove suggested could be due to how viewers have been captivated by the local countryside where the show is filmed.

Rightmove's director of property data Tim Bannister said:

"With the number of places to discover, and areas of natural beauty to explore in the Cotswolds, it's easy to see why the show has sparked so much interest in nearby areas."
