According to Jules' website, the show's host is also a "keen countryman and craftsman". It reads: "Jules spends his spare time renovating his period home and garden in Herefordshire and rescuing old furniture."

He previously opened up about his love of the countryside, saying: "I like the pace of life, the space and the shared fellowship. What’s revolutionised country living is next day delivery. It doesn’t matter if there are no shops nearby now as long as you have the internet."
