Inside Emmerdale star Michelle Hardwick’s country pad with wood burner and two living rooms


MICHELLE Hardwick lives in a stunning country pad, which wouldn’t look out of place in Emmerdale thanks to its gorgeous wood burner and chic decor.

The 42-year-old, who plays Vanessa Woodfield on the soap, shares the stunning home with wife Kate Brooks and their dog Fred, after moving in July 2018.

The stunning bolthole features not just one but two living rooms where the couple love to entertain their friends and family.

The centre piece of the room is the roaring wood fire, which Michelle loves to put on as they spend cosy nights in.

The room features a brocade wallpaper and chandelier light fixtures, which create an elegant feel and add to the country chic appearance.

There are large brown sofas, covered in cushions and a neutral rug to warm the wood flooring.

The home features two large living rooms

She loves nothing more than putting on the fire

By the fireplace there is large candle and a small poster, which reads: “We’re most definitely pretending to be adults right now.”

The second living room features a carpet and another fire place, as well as huge bay windows, which  is the perfect spot to put a Christmas tree.

Michelle, 42,  revealed she popped the question to Emmerdale producer Kate in December 2018, after “months of planning”, and was delighted she said yes.

She wrote on Twitter: “So after months of planning, I popped the question!!! She said yes!!! #loveislove #noordinaryproposal @katebrooks (sic)”

The pair’s announcement came just two months after Michelle confirmed her romance with Kate on National Coming Out Day, which occurs annually on October 11, by sharing two black and white images.

She added the caption: “It will all work out in the end #behappy #nationalcomingoutday #loveislove @thekatebrooks (sic)”

Michelle confirmed in April she was in a new relationship, after getting divorced from her long-term partner Rosie Nicholl last year – less than 12 months after their wedding.
