Viewers wondered if the Owens, the TV family on Our Yorkshire Farm, actually own the huge 2,500-acre Yorkshire estate.
Every week, TV shepherdess Amanda Owen and husband Clive welcome the public into their lives at the farm where they live with their nine children.
Amanda and Clive have been at the farm for more than 20 years now and continue to proudly farm in the same way as it would have been done hundreds of years prior.
According to Amanda's website Yorkshire Shepherdess, there is an option to either stay at Shepherd Hut which is for a maximum of two people or The Firs which is the six-bedroom farmhouse.
A stay at Shepherds Hut will set visitors back £60 for single occupancy and £175 per night at The Firs.
But Amanda is not currently accepting bookings thanks to the coronavirus pandemic and is expected to resume at a later date.
Ravenseat is a 2,000-acre working farm located in North Yorkshire in Upper Swaledale.
