Rich with history, and set among 1,000 hectares of land including farmland, parkland and an airfield, Prestwold Hall is a popular film location.
The neoclassical venue lends itself both inside and outside to a range of filming opportunities including movies, television programmes, historic documentaries, advertising campaigns and photoshoots.
Prestwold Hall provides exceptional interiors for film, with each room boasting its own individual character and history.
The Hall has six key reception spaces located on the ground floor, with an additional ten bedrooms and a dressing room across the second and third floors.
The interior of the House is noted for its exceptional marbled plaster work in the Italian style, remarkable for both the scale and the quality of the work. Within the house, there is a notable collection of 20th century portraiture and 18th century English and European furniture.
Gardens & parkland
During the 1842 restyling of the house, William Burn added the porte cochère and entrance to the west and created the garden that now lies to the south, with its well-planted beds reflecting the classical symmetry of the house.
Surrounding the gardens are views across gently rising parkland, guaranteeing seclusion and privacy for all filming. There are a number of other outdoor spaces on offer at the Prestwold Estate, including a private drive, airfield, farmland and woodland.
Rising above the shrubbery to the west of the house stands the tower of the medieval parish church of St Andrew, Prestwold.
The 13th century church is located just over 100 yards from the house and is accessible via a picturesque walk through the gardens. Steeped in history, the church is able to accommodate 160 people.
The Hall Barns
Originally built in 1889, The Hall Barns are tucked away in their own secluded spot on the Prestwold Estate.
The multi-use venue offers a rustic alternative to the grandeur of Prestwold Hall, with large wooden beams, exposed brickwork and a relaxed garden design.
As part of its accommodation offering, there is a large campsite to the east. Located just over 100 yards from the barns is a small, thatched cottage dating back to the Saxon period.
Airfield & motor circuit
Wymeswold Airfield has one of the longest runways in the county, second only to East Midlands International Airport. Today the airfield’s primary use is for motor sports on the purpose-built motor circuit that snakes around the airfield.
The airfield has large expanses of grass and tarmac, as well as being home to one of the largest solar farms in Europe, with 130,000 panels connected to the National Grid.
