Adam Henson, host of Countryfile, discusses how his holiday with his wife left him with a “sad heart.”
ADAM HENSON has opened out about his recent Scottish family vacation with his wife Charlotte, revealing that it left him with a “sad heart.”
Adam Henson and his partner Charlotte Henson went on a visit to the Isle of Islay in the Scottish Hebrides early this year. The English farmer and TV host fell in love with the island’s “unspoiled” beauty, which is ideal for nature enthusiasts like him.
The 55-year-old and his wife brought binoculars with them on their trip and were excited to see a golden eagle.
Adam saw hen harriers while visiting an RSPB reserve.
During his short vacation, the father-of-two stated he spent a pleasant day at the beach and went swimming in the sea.
They also hoped to see some otters, which Charlotte, or Charlie as Adam refers to her, had never seen before.
He told Herald Scotland that he wishes he could have spent more time on the Inner Hebrides, Scotland’s southernmost island off the west coast.
Following the journey, Adam was asked what he had left behind, and he replied, “A heavy heart.”
“We’ll be on Islay for five days.” I’d want to remain a little longer.” He continued by calling the island a “unspoiled beautiful hidden jewel.”
The English farmer, who owns a property in the Cotswolds, went on to claim that he had been to the Hebrides several times before, but this was his first visit to Islay.
Adam is the owner of the Cotswolds Farm Park near Cheltenham, which his father founded in 1971.
Ella and Alfie are his two children with his wife Charlotte.
Last year, his daughter, who graduated from university in 2019, appeared on Countryfile as a guest.
She’s said to work for a business that oversees the show’s live events.
Adam has been a member of the Countryfile cast for almost two decades.
He honored the event on Twitter earlier this week by sharing photos from his stint on the BBC farming programme.
In light of his 61,200 Twitter followers, he commented online, “Today marks 20 years since I joined the @BBCCountryfile crew, so here’s some photographs from the past!”
In one photo, he was seen arm-in-arm with some of his other presenters, including Matt Baker and John Craven.
Others have caught him shooting outside in all kinds of weather.
