Filming and Photography in our gardens

With a wide range of breath-taking sites on offer and a rich heritage, Kilver Court is a wonderful location for film and photo shoots. Three and a half acres of beautifully landscaped gardens are flanked by the majestic 15m high Victorian Viaduct and surrounded by the rolling hills and patchwork fields of rural Somerset.

Created at the beginning of the 1900’s, Kilver Court gardens were originally home to a lace making mill. There are many secluded spots to be found, from the dovecote overlooking the millpond to the cascading waterfalls and neatly trimmed box hedges of the parterre. There are also a range of indoor filming sites available, many with original features and bespoke details: the Ballroom, Directors Rooms and the Mulberry Room.

We are able to offer ample parking and catering facilities if required. Please not that there are special conditions regarding the safe and appropriate use of our gardens.

Fees start at £125 for a half day £200 for a full day*
(*There is a 50% reduction for pre-booked wedding parties)

National Trust Garden Expert Ian Wright says... 
 "The new border is looking really great with lots of colour and many interesting plants. So much has been achieved in the last few years and Kilver Court is a garden that has become a little horticultural gem."
