Helen Skelton has truly transformed her home following the completion of an incredible renovation project.

Helen lives in Yorkshire with her husband, rugby player Richie Myler and their two sons Ernie and Louis.

The family share a rural cottage which they recently renovated after calling it a “little old quirky building that didn’t make sense”.

Together they transformed the tired cottage into their dream forever home, and the results of the renovation are incredible.

Interior lovers will be swooning over the before and after pictures of the property overhaul.

Snaps of the completed kitchen area have already been dubbed “kitchen porn” by fans on Instagram.

The kitchen area is finished with these gorgeous wooden stools

The room features gorgeous teal cupboards, a huge butler sink and fitted cabinets that fit perfectly in the snug space, making the most of the whole room.

There is also a white marble-topped kitchen island with two bespoke wooden stools.

The downstairs appears to be open plan after the couple knocked through the walls to create a larger, lighter space.

The children’s bedroom features a stunning light wood bunk bed and cute reading snug full of comfy cushions.

They can also have fun playing on their indoor swing or climbing wall.

The master bedroom features an altogether more grown-up Chesterfield style sleigh bed and grey bedside table.

The home also features an impressive two-acre garden which is perfectly pruned and full of homegrown fruit and vegetables.

Helen admitted that it was the garden that initially piqued their interest in the property.

“We bought it for the garden — that was the main pull,” Helen told Country Living. “We found a tiny broken house with a two-acre garden.

“My dad saw it and said ‘it’s a terrible idea’, but then he saw the garden and said ‘you can’t live here.’ She’s an old house that someone put a lot of love into, especially in the garden.”

The property boasts two acres of land

Helen, who grew up in rural Cumbria, rose to fame as a presenter on kids TV show Blue Peter.

Most recently, she appeared on SAS Who Dares Wins and can regularly be seen presenting Countryfile.

Rachel and Richie married in 2013 after meeting in 2011 and have credited the success of their marriage as “teamwork”.

“Rich is the best dad. He’s the ‘sugar police’ when it comes to their diet and insists on routine, whereas sometimes I’m anything for a quiet life, so we’re a good balance,” Helen has said previously.
