Film & TV Location at Manor House

The Manor House is an excellent location in the centre of the beautiful small town of Sedgefield which has a traditional English village green with The Manor House located on the edge.


The Manor House has many features that make it an excellent film location. The traditional Georgian style front door is at the top of stone steps from the front garden and the hand-made brick façade includes traditional style sash windows. The front door opens into a magnificent early Georgian Reception Hall from which the early Venetian style grand staircase leads to the first floor gallery.  The Old Georgian Reception Hall and The Old Court Room are excellent spaces for filming social events and gatherings.


As a TV location The Manor House is perfect for many different programming options including dramas and documentaries. The early Georgian period façade and features of the building make for a great period drama location while The Old Court Room and the first floor Freville Room are excellent meeting facilities with The Old Court Room being particularly suited to an audience.


The Manor House provides a discreet and private location for film and programme making and our staff will make certain we meet your needs while at the location.


Sedgefield has a range of pubs and restaurants, in particular the Dun Cow where Prime Minister Tony Blair entertained President George W. Bush in 2003. The renowned Hardwick Hall Country House Hotel is less than a mile from The Manor House and provides four-star accommodation and facilities in an excellent and relaxing setting.


Sedgefield is well located only 30 minutes from Newcastle upon Tyne and a short distance from Durham and Teesside. The A1 is less than five minutes away as are Darlington and Durham mainline stations.  Durham Tees Valley and Newcastle International Airports are close by.

"We had a brilliant time at the book launch of The Magic Mobile in September. Couldn’t have wished for a better venue. Everybody was very impressed with the Manor House and we were very grateful for the help and support we received from your staff. The catering equipment provided was just right – glasses, cups, cloths etc – and the large tables at either end of the Court Room were perfect for the buffet and the book display. Washing up is a bit difficult, as both the sink and dishwasher downstairs are small; carrying dishes up all those stairs is not easy either!
Access via the lovely garden and inviting entrance area certainly add to the experience, while the rear door entrance and car parking proved very useful to visitors from beyond Sedgefield. I will certainly recommend the Manor House to other people and would love to be able to use your excellent facilities again. Good luck with future events."
