Further Information
Houghton Lodge has been used as the location for some wonderful television dramas and films, particularly popular with film makers because there are no power lines or any other 21st century features in view from the house.

Houghton was used as Betsey Trotwood’s house in the BBC’s adaptation of David Copperfield with Dame Maggie Smith, Trevor Eve, Zoe Wanamaker, and Daniel Radcliffe, and the film ‘Wilde’ with Stephen Fry as Oscar Wilde and and Jude Law as Lord Alfred Douglas. More recently we have had two Rosamund Pilcher TV productions for German viewers.

It has also been used as the Vicarage in Agatha Christie’s ‘Murder at the Vicarage’ with Paul Eddington and the lovely late Joan Hickson (pictured left) as the inquisitive Miss Marple.
