New indoor / outdoor shoot space at Walnuts Farm


We’ve just added a green oak framed porch on Sussex sandstone pad stones, and will be adding an oak boarded deck beneath it in Spring. The oak frame by English Heritage Buildings is the first major structural addition to Walnuts Farm for about two hundred years.

It’s perfect for keeping the wood (and your models) dry.



Walnuts Farm – the campsite


Here’s our wild campsite featuring our heavy duty canvas bell tent as used by Kew, and camp fire with tripod and suspended cast iron dutch oven. Just add your own bunting, or hang our white canvas hammock between a couple of handy trees.

Specially chosen for their beauty, they’re willing to pose in exchange for a slap and a tickle.

If we are providing your catering you can now enjoy the above as sausages, bacon and ham.
