We have also featured in Torchwood and the Sarah Jane Adventures.

Torchwood featured interior and exterior shots of the house and the walled gardens in the episode Something Borrowed No. 28 and No. 24 on the map.

Sarah Jane Adventures featured the house heavily, No. 28 on the map. The bird wallpaper in the Morning Room was put in for this production and can still be seen today, it is a replica of a 1890s print so fits with the time period of the house.
