The Porlock Manor EstateThe Porlock Manor Estate is a stunning tract of country in west Somerset where Exmoor tumbles to the sea. The gem of the Estate is the ancient port of Porlock Weir where historic buildings cluster round the unspoilt harbour, offering many ideal locations for filming and photography.
The self-contained nature of the village and lack of modern development mean that it is easy to eliminate traffic and re-create period scenes; the whole area can be stage-managed very easily and there are excellent facilities for film crews and support services. The harbour itself has operational lock gates which are used for sluicing the harbour entrance, and period cottages occupy a spit of land between the sea and the harbour.
