Animal Farm, WD6

Animal Farm really does live up to its name; it’s home to a fantastic array of shoot-friendly farm animals including donkeys, miniature ponies, chicken, ducks, sheep, goats, pigs, guinea pigs and rabbits. Used to hosting school groups, the animals are really friendly and enjoy attention.

On the fringes of Elstree, the farm location is inside the M25 and just 10 minutes drive from Elstree Studios. With just over 20 acres of grass fields, the farm is easy to access and get around once there, with some of the farm buildings converted into well-equipped crew facilities and loos.
