Local manor house is backdrop to Daniel Day-Lewis' last film

A Cotswold manor house has announced its involvement in the filming of Oscar nominated film, Phantom Thread.


A Gloucestershire manor house has been featured as the backdrop to Daniel Day-Lewis’ last ever film.

Owlpen Manor, near Uley, was used as the principal filming location outside of London for Oscar nominated movie, Phantom Thread. A 150-person film crew spent three weeks filming at the Tudor manor house last year. The manor was used as the country house of Reynolds Woodcock, the film’s main character; played by Daniel Day-Lewis.

Owners of Owlpen Manor, Nicholas and Karin Mander said the crew ‘made themselves at home’ during filming. The couple even had morning coffee with Daniel Day-Lewis each day, before shooting began, and hosted his stay in one of their holiday cottages, near to the manor.

Senior location manager for the film, Jason Wheeler, explained that Owlpen had been picked because it was so ‘homely, lived in and spectacularly beautiful.’
