Castle Farm has been playing host to film crews, photographers and production companies for over 6 years, now establishing ourselves as a key farm film locations in the South East. 

Only 17 miles from the centre of London, we are able to offer a vast variety of backgrounds and buildings, along with crew facilities and undercover production space. 

You never know what request is going to come in next.... from setting fire to a piano in the middle of a wheat field, crashing cars at the bottom of our driveway, turning our huge barn into a scene for a scary movie, or using a grass field for a faux festival with 100 extras... we've had a lot of weird and wonderful scenes over the years! 

A few highlights from 2021 alone..
