Crew Accommodation and Film Locations in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley
The Forest of Dean and Wye Valley is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK and it’s no surprise that it has been declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As such, many locations here attract the attention of TV and Film productions such as Star Wars, Harry Potter, Merlin and Doctor Who.
With popular locations in Puzzlewood, The Forest of Dean and along the River Wye being used more and more as stunning backdrops to many productions, there is a need to ensure the comfort of those making these fantastic shows and movies.

Film Crew Accommodation
If you are a production company looking for somewhere to house your film crew, our houses can sleep 10-26 people each dependent on whether rooms are shared. Each house offers plenty of bathrooms, great kitchen facilities and areas for your crew to relax after a hard day’s filming. Let us know if you prefer catered or self-catered options when staying.
If you need to park your big trucks or vans nearby, don’t worry! Most of our houses have on-site parking which can accommodate any large vehicles easily.
Perhaps you’re putting on an event in the area, either a one-off or a tour and you want somewhere which offers great amenities and and plenty of space for your team. If so we can accommodate your needs. Our local knowledge and contacts will help your stay be as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
If you’re looking for houses that offer privacy and quiet why not check out Highcloud Farm, River Wye Lodge or Hollytree House? These offer secluded locations where you won’t have to worry about neighbours, especially Highcloud Farm which is set in 30 acres of land at the top of a hill.
Film Location Availability
Our large houses are also available to be used as filming locations themselves. Set in idyllic locations with fantastic vistas and lots of timeless character they are suitable for use in many types of TV show or drama. Whether you’re looking for a classic country pub (Anchor House), an 18th Century Coaching Inn (River Wye Lodge), a remote hilltop farmhouse (High Cloud Farm) or a picturesque Edwardian villa (Holly Tree House).
One of our houses has a unique connection to one of the classic films of cinema too. Fairlea Grange was built by the father of Ethel Lina White, who wrote the original novel on which Alfred Hitchcock based one of his most celebrated movies, The Lady Vanishes. This Gothic Townhouse was the childhood inspiration for many scenes in the author’s books which at the time rivalled Agatha Christie. This house still retains much of the character that would suit a period piece requiring such a location.
If you’re interested in using any of these houses as a location please get in touch and we’ll be happy to arrange a visit.
