We are, of course, proudly anchored in Cornwall but we are only about 5 miles from the Devon border so we are perfectly located as a base to explore north Devon too. Hartland Quay, just 14 miles up the coast has just been used as a location for a new feature film of the Du Maurier classic ‘Rebecca’.
Filming took place at the Quay last week and it had been transformed into an 1940s time-warp! They had also built a little cottage, ‘Mandalay’, on the slip, only to burn it down on the last day of filming!
We highly recommend a visit to Hartland Quay even when there’s no filming! There’s an excellent pub, ‘The Wreckers Retreat‘ a museum, shop and a small beach at the bottom of the slip. It’s a lovely spot for a bit of lunch or an al-fresco dinner in the summer evening sunshine.
Here are a few photos of the scenes.
