Clive and Amanda Owens neighbors from Our Yorkshire Farm revealed how the family has been off camera

Our viewers at Yorkshire Farm might think they know Amanda and Clive Owen – but what are they like off-screen?

The former couple, who sadly announced their split after 22 years of marriage, tied the knot just five years after first meeting.

Their love story began in 1995 when Amanda came across Ravenseat Farm in Upper Swaledale while looking for a ram.

Clive, who was divorced from his first wife and has two children by their marriage, was running the farm alone when Amanda suddenly showed up one night and asked to borrow a male sheep.

Despite the 21-year age difference, the couple found love and went on to have nine children together – Annas, Violet, Edith, Raven, Clemmy, Nancy, Reuben, Miles and Sidney.

They then became the stars of their own Channel 5 series and fans became so fanatical about the Owen family that it became a problem for the people living around them.

Patricia and Ronald Tyler, aged 67 and 75, have lived next door to Ravenseat Farm for two decades and have watched the family grow.

The Tylers retired and moved away from the hustle and bustle of London, moving to the remote part of the Yorkshire Dales for a quieter existence.

However, they are now joined by hordes of fans as loyal Our Yorkshire Farm fans make ‘pilgrimages’ to see the Owens.

Patricia and Ronald have bought an old farmhouse right next to the Owens’ 2,000-acre property and reveal what it’s like to live next to the famous faces.

When they first moved in, Clive lived alone and ran the farm almost single-handedly, but then Amanda came along and they began to build their family.

“They are fantastic neighbors. They’re there when we need them without being intrusive,” Ms. Tyler said live in yorkshireand describes how they were welcomed into the community with open arms.

“The game warden also lives nearby and they are all very good neighbors – happy and content.”

She added: “There’s a different arrangement than in the suburbs where you live close together but don’t know anyone.

“You can be lonelier in the city than in a place that most people think is isolated.”

Ravenseat Farm, home to 1,000 sheep, 40 cows, six dogs and four ponies, is on the same winding, narrow road where the Tylers live – and where Amanda gave birth to six of their children.

When Clive and Amanda rose to fame through their reality TV show, things began to change where they live as tourists flock to see the family.

Explaining how Amanda achieved her celebrity status, Ms Tyler said: “It all started when Julia Bradbury was doing one of her programs down here and Amanda met her.

“Now that she’s written her books and done everything, people come down a lot now. It’s almost like a pilgrimage.

“She (Amanda) has a huge following. We get people coming down and when it’s closed they will travel miles to get home and come back the next day. I think people just want to see them.”

They have a huge fan base



Although Mrs. Tyler has admitted that she didn’t really get the whole fuss and can’t understand why people are so interested.

“That’s one of the sad things. It seems like people like to live their lives vicariously,” she said.

Our Yorkshire Farm fans will be delighted to know that once the cameras have stopped rolling, the Owens are exactly the same.

Though the couple have confessed they don’t sit down to enjoy the program because they know all about life on the farm.

“We’re not looking at it. It’s too real for us. We already know everything that’s going to happen,” Mrs. Tyler said.

The Tylers lived next door before the nine Owen children were born – Annas, Violet, Edith, Raven, Clemmy, Nancy, Reuben, Miles and Sidney.

It has taken them a while to adjust to the complete isolation of living miles from civilization, but the local community has helped them massively.

When they moved to the area, they had virtually no contact with the outside world, and just a few years later a new neighbor helped them get connected to the internet.

It’s a very welcoming community



A farming neighbor also advised them to always stock up on 12 weeks’ worth of food, which benefited them when the pandemic hit.

Ms Tyler said: “She said, ‘She was so right. I’ve always done that since then. It’s helped us tremendously during lockdown.”

The couple added that a “very good hub” was set up by locals during the pandemic so that “everything you needed was provided”.

They’ve also detailed some of the challenges they face, which viewers of Our Yorkshire Farm saw the Owen family struggle with.

“On the other hand you have to prepare for the winter, which we have learned now. In one year we had eight feet of snowdrifts. But as long as we can keep the electricity and water going, it’s not too difficult,” Mr Tyler said.

“You definitely get an awareness of nature out here. You can’t fight it, it’s inevitable.”

Sadly, it was announced today on Instagram that Clive and Amanda have decided to separate after 22 years of marriage.

“It hasn’t been easy, but we both believe it’s the right choice for our family’s future,” Amanda wrote in a statement signed by both of them.

“Although we are no longer a couple, we continue to work on the farm and are co-parents, with our top priority being the happiness and well-being of our children.”

Amanda and Clive thanked everyone for their support and asked for privacy during this “difficult time.”

There were rumors that the couple was having a difficult time in their marriage for most of this year, with stories suggesting the pair were on the rocks.

The future of Our Yorkshire Farm remains up in the air and it is unknown if Clive or Amanda will resume filming.

However, Channel 5 released a statement after announcing the split – and it looks like they are making every effort to keep the series going.

It read: “We respect the privacy of Amanda and Clive Owen at this time.

“They are an integral part of the Channel 5 family and we will continue to work with them in the future.”
