Hi Roger,

Having seen that you live in Kingswear, and being local to Kingswear myself, I was wondering if you’ve ever put the idea to any director about filming on location in this area? It’s got so much potential with its beauty!

Ashley,

19 films have been made around Kingswear in the last 85 years. One of them opposite his property “Curse this house” for German TV.  Scenes from French “Lieutenants Woman” and “Churchill- The Hollywood Years also here plus numorous BBC and ITV productions.

Local councils have great tax incentives for film makers plus other packages. Hammer films turned the Rotunder building (Oldway mansions, Singer sewing machines) into a studio 1939.

Lots of commercials too are made here due the stunning coastline.
