Lunsford Farm, TN35

A farm looking out to sea. Lunsford Farm is an awe-inspiring farm location on the top of a hill and extending down to the East Sussex coastline. Extending across 200 acres of rolling pasture where sheep and cattle roam, Lunsford Farm’s crown jewel is its coastal backdrop with sea views extending for miles from the adjacent Pett Level beach and continuing along the coastline beyond Folkestone in Kent. Watercourses (including the military canal), ponds, steep “cliff banks” and preservation areas with war-time look outs are also under the farmer’s guardianship.

Filming Location for Channel 5’s Celebs on the Farm

NEW for 2018, TV show Celebs on the Farm based its filming at Lunsford Farm.

The 10 one-hour-long episodes of the reality Tv show were all filmed across just 10 days in early Summer. Lunsford Farm played host to the celebrity’s accommodation (in a field) and 10s of farming challenges (from tractor driving, to sheep herding, to feeding lambs and mucking out). The full mix of barns were used for various activities, as well catering and the “dairy room”. And what’s more, the farmer Andrew and his shepherd, Jamie, could not hide. Andrew is featured heavily across the show! As for the locals from Pett village, they were very involved too: from the pubs, to the caterer, to helpers in the crew.

Lunsford Farm has proved itself as a very film-friendly shoot location, providing the platform for brilliant TV entertainment.
