Film Location

Previously owned by Cheltenham Film Studios and used as its headquarters, our Manor has already had its fair share of fame and glory starring in period dramas and film productions including Cider with Rosie and Butterflies.

As a setting the beautiful gardens enjoy three differing styles, each bathed in good natural light at different times of the day. The Neo-Gothic Manor is of an irregular design allowing film crews the advantage of showing it as two separate buildings.

Inside, the Victorian interior features a number of rooms decorated with original period furnishings and beautiful decor, much oak panelling and marble fireplaces add to the authenticity, with skylights keeping the rooms airy and bright, ideal for interior work.


Photographic / Video Studio and Suite

The Manor benefits by being located next to Cheltenham Film Studios, a cutting-edge facility featuring a two-storey photographic studio fitted with infinity coving, lighting gantries and equipment for hire at competitive rates. A number of creative companies are located in the building offering a full range of editing and production facilities including green screen. The large studio can easily accommodate vehicles and built stage sets. The whole site is located conveniently close to the M5 for ease of access.



Hedda Gabler

Hedda Gabler

Destined for the big screen, HEDDA GABLER is based on Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen’s play published in 1890 and premiered in Germany in 1891. It went on to become regarded as a classic of realism, 19th Century theatre and world drama. Some critics consider the character of Hedda one of the great dramatic roles in theatre.

Manor By The Lake was chosen for the beautiful garden and Manor House shots.
