Dating back as far as 1270, this unique shoot location in East Sussex oozes with history and character. Grand staircases, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and stone doorways are just the beginnings of this renovated castle in Hartfield, where film and photoshoot directors are welcome to take full advantage of its inimitable grandeur. Outside, 27 acres of grounds including gardens, a vegetable patch, two large lakes, colourful cut flower garden and woodlands, offering a unique opportunity to utilise all the assets that comprise Alcázar's luxury country estate.
