Locations in Kent
For Filming and Photoshoots
The farms featured below are all available to hire for filming and photoshoots in Kent, the Garden of England.
Our Kent farms are a very special collection of shoot locations; showcasing the striking variety in landscape on offer across the county. Even though these farms all sit within the same region, there’s a huge difference in terms of both settings and surroundings within reach; from the chalky hilly North Kent Downs to the flat expansive terrain experienced further South on the Romney Marsh.
Bordering Greater London, Kent is a very popular and convenient place for filming and photoshoots. The strong transport connections in place across the county, with fast train links and motorway network, makes Kent easily accessible from central London.
Otherwise known as ‘The Garden of England’, our Kent farms show you exactly why and how the county lives up to this much deserved title. Orchards brimming full of fruit, traditional hop gardens, historic Oast Houses, quintessential English farmhouses and the renowned Kent Barns, instantly spring to mind as key elements to what this county is celebrated for.

Filming on a farm in Kent opens up many doors in terms of both opportunity and discovery. The diversity in the landscape is huge, providing a variety of dramatic film settings. One of England’s most unique landscapes can be found in the South of the county, known as the Romney Marsh. The distinctive flat expansive terrain of wide open fields, endless skies, watercourses, tall reed beds and ditches can be uncovered at our farms including Marsh Farm, Whitehall Farm, Belgar Farm, Forty Acre Farm and Fairfield Farm.
The Romney Marsh is also home to the iconic Fairfield Church, which has been used as a filming location for BBCs adaption of Great Expectations and for the TV series Parade’s End. This St Thomas à Becket Church is poised on the fringes of our very own Fairfield Farm providing uninterrupted views of both the church itself and surrounding marshland.
Travelling north of the county, the North Kent Downs provide a very contrasting look with its lace-work of steep sided dry valleys and rolling hills. In full view, etched into a steep grass bank along the Downs, sits the ‘Wye Crown’ which can be hired as a shoot location at our exclusive Crown Farm.
Where the North Kent Downs meets the sea, you can find White Cliffs Farm, nestled high on the cliff tops, providing unique views across the English Channel and that of Dover Castle. The farm is full of history with its WW2 connections and is also home to a Napoleonic fort.
Kingsland Farm is a National Nature Reserve located on an island in Kent, which is also available to hire for filming. The vast wildness of meadows, wild flowers and waterways provide a remarkable setting for film, a world away from what you would initially expect Kentish landscape to offer.
Our farms in Kent have seen an array of exciting productions, including the filming of music promotion videos, TV advertising, short films, TV shows and dramas.
Parts of filming for the music promotion video of Ellie Goulding’s single ‘River’ was carried out at Manor Farm in Kent, which is located a short distance from the impressive Dungeness coastline. The production team for artist Billy Lockett choose Lodding Farm as the location to shoot the music video for his single ‘Feels so good’.
Float Farm with its traditional farmstead, farmhouse, Kent Barn and private driveway is another popular film location. The farm has recently welcomed the creators of the short film ‘Reptile’ and was also chosen to host the production for singer-songwriter ‘Heartblake’ to release his single ‘Your Eyes’.
We have also arranged the hire of farms in Kent for the filming of major TV programmes including the Sky series ‘Gangs of London’ at Chalk Farm Estate and the ITV show ‘The Masked Dancer’ where filming was carried out at three of our farms: Austin, Chapel and Chart Farms.
Jolly Farm in Kent was one of the locations used for the filming of the new ITV series The Larkins. This unspoilt ‘old fashioned’ farm and perfectly untouched 1950’s cottage kitchen with original props and furniture provided the crew with the perfect shoot location for the series.
