Goodnestone Park as a Film Set

from commercials to feature films

Goodnestone Park is available for hire as a film set for anything from commercials to feature films. Used as a filming location by a range of productions, our staff at Goodnestone Park are experienced in coordinating with film crew.

Just a few hours from London, Goodnestone Park is the ideal location for a production crew. The stunning countryside setting provides plenty of scope for beautiful filming locations.

The gardens

The gardens are one of the standout filming locations on the estate, with a stunning walled garden, a woodland garden and a parterre area, among other features. The Walled Garden comprises a succession of brick-walled enclosures filled with rose garden areas and many other floral treasures. Considered one of the best views in an English garden, the view through these looks onto the village church.

Inspired by an early 18th-century view of the garden, the parterre area on the east side of the house also provides a wonderful view. Designed by Charlotte Molesworth to mark the millennium, the intricate labyrinthine box hedge parterre is a magnificent homage to the rich history of Goodnestone Park.

The Manor House

The Queen Anne style house is also available for use as a filming location. First built in 1704, many of its original features are still in place. For instance, the hallway is home to one of the house’s oldest architectural centrepieces, with the grand oak staircase. It is characteristic of the Palladian mansion-style pioneered by British architect Sir Roger Pratt in the 1650s.

Following renovations in 2016, other parts of the house have a more modern feel while still retaining their original grandeur. Majestic areas such as the Library, which boasts original 19th-century books in its collection, are also ideal for filming.

Other information

There is plenty of parking space on-site, and wifi is available throughout the property. Many rooms in the house are suitable for use as dressing rooms or other purposes. Goodnestone Park can also organise catering for the film crew on site.
