Fancy living the farmhouse dream like Mrs Hinch?

Can you imagine waking up to sprawling grounds and fresh country air in your very own farmhouse retreat? Influencer Mrs Hinch has turned that dream into a reality by moving to a rambling home in the countryside that she has proudly called Hinch Farm.

The home cleaning phenomenon, whose full name is Sophie Hinchliffe, has been sharing glimpses of her new five-bedroom retreat with her 4.5 million Instagram followers. Her grand renovation plans include a balcony extension, couples’ dressing rooms for her and husband Jamie, and a playroom for sons Ronnie and Lennie. Not forgetting a bedroom for the family’s beloved dog Henry.

Mrs Hinch isn’t the first famous face to have recently fallen for the charms of a countryside retreat. Her close friend and regular Loose Women panellist Stacey Solomon, who was one of the first housewarming guests, purchased a countryside cottage last year, which sits on 2.5 acres of land with a pool and hot tub in the grounds.

The Beckhams have long been advocates of the country lifestyle with their barn conversion in the Cotswolds, setting the standard for glamorous farmhouse makeovers. The Beckhams’ property has a wine cellar, football court, swimming pool, four-foot deep lake and sauna.
