Deepdale Farm is an arable farm of 1000 acres, with marshes, woodland, undulating hills & fields on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast. This diversified farm offers a wide range of film location types, for both film & photography shoots, including three types of farming land, various crops, amazing views, woodland, backpackers hostel, campsite, visitor information centre, farm workshops, old style cottages, retail site with shops & cafe, and much more. These can all be used for filming by arrangement. This location is between Hunstanton & Wells-next-the-Sea on the A149 coast road, approximately 120 miles from Central London.
The biggest movie to be filmed here was ‘Die Another Day‘ the James Bond 007 film, where the farm was made to look like rice paddies in South Korea.
Deepdale Farm has been used for many other filming and photographic shoots. These include Dangerfield and All the King’s Men, both BBC productions, various wildlife films and advertising stills.
