Photography and filming

Highwic has been used as a location for feature film, and TV drama productions which have screened around the world. Large wood panelled rooms offer opportunities for a period or character setting, or can be dressed for a more contemporary look. The two hectares of grounds have both open spaces, areas of mature trees, garden beds and lawn with plenty of room to move.

Highwic is also available for private photography for weddings or other special occasions.
