Owned previously by Cheltenham Film Studios and used as its headquarters, our Manor has already had its fair share of TV and film glory.

Starring in period dramas and film productions including Cider with Rosie and Butterflies the Manor continues to be a venue of choice for production companies. 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 paneling 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 from 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.

Feature Films

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. Manor By The Lake was chosen for the beautiful garden and Manor House shots of this film which premiered in 2016.

In 2016 Manor By The Lake was used as the main location for a feature-length chiller, psychiatrists practice in a TV movie, a Bentley advertisement and a promotional video for a luxury travel organisation.

Music Videos

Manor By The Lake has always been very popular as a backdrop for music videos. Zack Knight has hit the mainstream music scene since being the support act for Jessie J. His track ‘Dheere’, which features extensive footage of Manor By The Lake, has had over 13 million views.
