    Hours of Filming

    Due to our public opening hours the Manor will only normally be available for filming from 7am-10am and 5pm-10pm Tuesday-Sunday.

    However, special arrangements for sole access for filming in the Manor can be made. We can also arrange to open for filming on Mondays when we are closed to the public. We are prepared to close to the site to the public for filming but this option incurs additional negotiated costs if the Visitor Centre has to be closed as well.

    Friday and Saturday evenings between October and the end of March are not normally available unless arrangements are made with at least three months notice due to programmed events during the winter.

    Should a block of filming be required, as much notice as possible enables us to reserve dates for you and arrange group bookings around filming commitments.

    Please Note:

    1. All charges are subject to VAT at the standard rate current at the time of booking
    2. Extra charges may be incurred for the moving of furniture as some pieces require special care as they are 16th/17th century pieces.
    3. Additional facilities for hire may be available: green rooms, prop storage, wardrobe and make up in our education centre.
    4. These fees are valid for the calendar year.
    5. Contracts and proof of insurance will be required to protect the grade 1 listed building and its contents.
    6. The General Manager of Llancaiach Fawr, on behalf of Caerphilly County Borough Council, reserves the right to refuse filming access to any applicant where the content of the filming is considered to be incompatible with the purpose of the site
