Finding the ideal location

Whether you are filming an advertisement, reality show, film/movie or TV series, the location can make a huge difference.

A film location sets the scene and choosing the right location can be a daunting process.

Whether it's our quiet, our extensive Parking, the 60 amp electrical power or the beauty of our exteriors and interiors, Great Tangley Manor is a great location.

Great Tangley Manor is available for Film/TV/Stills shoots and has been used by, for example, the BBC & Granada.

The Estate offers a number of photogenic interior/exterior features and is easily accessible from London.

Unique historic features, ample parking, three phase power and low ambient noise make the Manor a great location.

Great Tangley Manor is a beautiful Grade 1 Listed moated manor house in an idyllic location just outside Guildford. It is easily accessible from London but is remarkably quiet. It offers good parking facilities and has numerous local restaurants and hotels. The house is in private occupation and maintained to a high standard.


The first mention of the Manor is in 1086. William I gave it to the Bishop of Bayeaux. It is recorded in the Domesday Book as a royal hunting lodge and was (reputedly) used by King John.
