A TV company is searching for a farm with numerous houses in which a group of 30 townies could live for 6 months next summer, ideally around a yard. Where should we start looking? Any ideas?

You’ll be looking for an estate stable block converted into holiday accommodation.
Might not be easy to find, but there’s bound to be a few to choose from.

30 townies that havent got a clue how country life works ,never seen a dead animal ,well only on a plate ,,farm life starting as soon as the sparrows start coughing ,how long before they pack their bags and clear of back to police sirens and traffic ques
I think the production company will look after them, and the glory of being on the telly can persuade people to do the most unlikely things! Have you watched I'm a Celebrity? ;)

I know of a farm with holiday lets.
Couple houses, several glamping pods(really luxurious). Don't think it'd get to 30 beds though.

I'd be surprised if there's any estates even with housing for 30 sitting empty.

Wiltshire, we moved a few cows there and they did some filming on my farm that was never broadcast.

As an aside there’s lots of filming on the Salisbury Plain training area. Much of the film 1917 was made just down the road and also part of the new Bond if it ever comes out.

Do they still spend silly money on locations.

One of our properties was on 'Where the heart is' the production people put the couple up in a hotel for a fortnight full board, transformed a bedroom into a bathroom and decorated two other rooms, story was a lady stuck in the bath, after the filming everything was removed and returned to as it was,apart from the decorating which with consent was retained.

This was around the year 2000, they paid the couple approx a months wages for the inconvenience, paid the business £1,000, when it was finally shown on the TV it lasted less than a minute.

A friend from school let out his home for Pam Ferris's family home, they used the house for the first series and put his family in an hotel as above, for the subsequent series they built a set in the studio mimicking the house inside, still using the outside for some shots, the money paid for the first series was a lot more than he was earning as an electrician, it was then halved for the rest of the run.
