Skyfall | Photoshoot and Film Location | West Sussex

Photoshoots at Skyfall

Steyning, Billingshurst, West Sussex, UK

A home that wouldn’t look out of place on the set of a Bond film, Skyfall has oodles of inspiring spaces for photoshoot and filmmakers to work their magic on. Inside, bright open-plan living complemented by giant houseplants lend this luxury West Sussex house a Mediterranean-style atmosphere, while five and a half acres of grounds encompass two allotments, a wishing well, pool and al fresco kitchen. Oh, and did we mention the aircraft hangar?


On the outskirts of the South Downs National Park near Brighton and within two hours of central London, this unique shoot location near Billingshurst will appeal to a wide range of project briefs, from television filming to luxury product launches. Vaulted ceilings, exposed oak framework and floor-to-ceiling windows allow light to flow freely throughout while an open iron staircase forms the twisting spine of the house. Across the grounds, film interviews between homegrown vegetables, drive vintage cars along the pebbled drive or capture models as they swan dive into the heated outdoor swimming pool on frosty winter mornings.


Whatever project needs bringing to life, there’s sure to be a brightly-lit balcony, plush sofa or ceiling-height inglenook fireplace that fits the bill at Skyfall. A speakeasy influenced bar (made entirely out of recycled aeroplane parts) hides within the private aircraft hangar just 15 minutes away, which perfectly lends itself to drinks adverts or television series scenes, while the gym, sauna and outdoor heated swimming pool will ignite imagery of wellness and self-care for health and beauty brands. A large open-plan living area encompassing a lounge, dining room and modern kitchen are the heart of this meticulously appointed West Sussex country home.
