Ideal Filming Venue

With years of experience as a filming venue the Broughton Hall Estate can offer both a magnificent backdrop as well as 5 star hospitality and a dedicated team on hand to help. We have enjoyed hosting a wide range of productions including the BBC’s The Thirteenth Tale, Wuthering Heights, A Woman of Substance, Pretty Little Things, Go Outdoors and Gentleman Jack.

A Truly Authentic Country House

Dating back to 1597, our historic Broughton Hall with its authentic, characterful features, beautiful heirlooms and the splendid 18th century formal gardens provide a stunning location for films, TV, commercials and editorial photoshoots that require a spectacular period drama feel.

Impressive Backdrop

The colours and interiors of the state rooms suit as a backdrop for royal weddings, regal occasions and society parties whilst the intimacy and cosiness of the bedrooms can showcase the Hall as a private yet stately home.

Our Contemporary Venue ‘Eden’

A complete contrast to the lavish Broughton Hall is our restored 17th century barn ‘Eden’. It is simplistic, light and spacious and offers a stylish blank canvas for you to make your own mark.

Drama and Romance

Higher Scarcliffe is nestled amongst the Brontë-esque heather moorland and is mysterious, rural and remote. A perfect setting for those Jane Eyre-type remakes, crime thrillers or mystery dramas.

Wild and Varied Landscapes

Our 3000 acre landscape is a wondrous mix of rolling meadow pastures, heather moorland, ancient woodland, wild reservoirs and meandering rivers. The abundant nature, diverse wildlife and typical Yorkshire scenery provide a wonderful countryside setting.


Our portfolio of places to stay can provide accommodation for up to 100 beds.

Accommodation and Private Spaces

100 beds are available across our collection of historic houses, holiday homes and shepherds huts. The Hall itself can sleep 17 people and is perfect for VIP actors and actresses.


Our Walled Garden bistro ‘Utopia’ offers a nutritious menu full of locally sourced, natural ingredients. Delicious food can be ordered for delivery on tight filming schedules or the crew can take a short break and enjoy the beautiful surroundings Utopia has to offer.

Here to Help

As hospitality is our speciality the Broughton team are only a phone call away to be on hand to provide everything from refreshments to photocopying. Our five star service also comes in handy as everything is done with efficiency and a courteous smile – enough to help even the most stressful of filming days.
