topic icon 3 Putsborough holiday cottage films completed

Over the last year we have been busy filming in and around three holiday cottages in the beautiful hamlet of Putsborough, North Devon.

Rob, owner of the award winning Putsborough Beach, asked us to create promotional videos for his properties in Putsborough called The Anchorage & The Thatch Cottage and Manor Farm Cottage. We also worked on a number of properties in Croyde at the same time whilst capturing general scenic views on nice weather days.

Due to the properties being occupied by visitors through a good part of the year, and the weather horrendous when they were empty, it's taken a while to get the filming completed. But we were all prepared for this and had factored plenty of time in to our schedule to work around this.

We filmed inside and outside of both properties, and also used an octocopter & gimbal drone to film 4k Ultra HD scenic views that included the properties. We organised permissions and permits for flying the drone with several land owners including the National Trust, Croyde Bay Ruda and Crown Lands.

Once the drone filming was complete we were able to finish off the edits, polish off the grade and release them in time for the Spring booking season. More videos are coming soon to play in the beach Cafe at Putsborough beach.

Rob is very happy with the end result and now has them featured on his self-catering accommodation websites - http://www.putsborough.com/self-catering-cottages.asp
