Cogges Manor Farm is a beautifully preserved collection of Cotswold stone farm buildings set in its own grounds - a unique heritage site that has been farmed since before the Domesday Book and parts of the manor house date back to 13th century.
Downton Abbey and other filming at Cogges
Cogges is a popular filming location and featured as Yew Tree Farm, where Lady Edith's child was looked after by the Drewes, in the ITV drama series Downton Abbey. You can see a collection of photographs of the filming and set in the manor house sitting room, and try on Downton inspired vintage outfits in the parlour. There is also a short film showing how the kitchen and grounds were transformed, including interviews with the Producer and Location Manager of the show. This can be viewed on tablets or on a screen in the manor house. The filming locations are very close together and can all be seen, including the film, in under an hour.
You can also see photos on display of another ITV period drama filmed recently, Arthur & George featuring Martin Clunes, Art Malik and Downton actor Charles Edwards.
