Estate farmhouse stars in new comedy series
The six-part series, called Robin's Test, has been written and directed by Bafta award winner Julia Davis and follows three couples on a camping trip to Dorset - although much of the filming actually took place in and around Budleigh Salterton.
Production company Baby Cow contacted Clinton Devon Estates last year asking for a picturesque farmhouse with some land in East Devon to use as a location for filming and also as a base for all of their kit, props, make-up and green room.
Estate Surveyor Clare James said: "We had a farmhouse near Otterton that was vacant at the time so we were really pleased to be able to accomodate their request. The cast and crew - about 50 in total - were there for eight weeks last summer, filming at the farmhouse and the field alongside.
"Their visit extended right through to the end of September and provide to be a real boost to the local economy. Not only did they stay in local accomodation and use local shops and restaurants, and they even hired boats and some local chickens!"
A spokesperson for thr production company Baby Cow said: "The local business owners and residents were lovely to deal with, plus, we had the most stunning weather throughout. It was lovely, sunny and warm, and East Devon looked absolutely beautiful."
Robin's Test will air on Sky Atlantic in early 2016.
