Film & Photographic locations at Shimpling Park Barn

We have a very varied range of locations all close by the farm. From traditional Victorian redbrick farm buildings to modern arrays of barns and derelict buildings. We have a former WWII air base – parts derelict , parts restored. We have views across open fields and others within ancient or modern woodland. We farm organically so many of our fields do not have obvious “tramlines” therefore resembling historical farming views. We have infinite horizons, ponds and streams – almost anything – and all close together.

On the practical front we have plentiful parking across the farm. We have concrete hardstandings of up to 1 acre. We are easily accessible from London and Cambridge. We also have the opportunity to book our events barn complex and other buildings as production / rehearsal / dressing / building space. These all have full facilities and superfast broadband.

Whether you are interested in a small stills shoot or a full feature film, in the first instance drop us an email with a few details about your project and we will be able to tell you what we have that might suit.

We have filming arrangements with Screen Suffolk who are the central point of contact for anyone looking to film in Suffolk. They are highly experienced at all aspects of filming licences, permits etc. If you need help with permits and a wider service, they can help make things really simple. or you can email them.


All our location fees are bespoke to the project as no two productions are the same however for an idea Screen Suffolk have published the following guide:
