Blandings, starring Timothy Spall as Lord Emsworth and Jennifer Saunders as his sister Connie, is set in 1929 in the fictional Blandings Castle, home to a chaotic family struggling to keep itself in order.
The comedy series is currently being filmed on location at the magnificent Crom Castle, County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland.
Crom Castle stands on elevated parkland amidst an archipelago of wooded islands and peninsulas in the famous Fermanagh lakelands and is the perfect setting as the ‘home’ of the much loved Wodehouse character Lord Emsworth.
Wodehouse is widely regarded as the greatest comic author of the 20th century and his series of stories involving Emsworth, his castle and its environs are known as the ‘Blandings books’ to his legions of fans.
Built in the 1830s Crom has been the home to the Crichton family, Earls of Erne, for centuries.
Although still the private residence for Lord and Lady Erne, the castle’s west wing is available for rent, offering visitors the opportunity to live like a lord for the duration of their stay.
Regarded as one of the best castle rentals in Ireland, the sumptuous west wing accommodation caters for up to 12 people.
It includes seven luxurious bedrooms, a drawing room opening onto a terrace with access to the lake beyond and a dining room with a spectacular barrel-vaulted ceiling.
The castle is set in the magnificent surroundings of a 1,900-acre parkland estate over which visitors can roam freely to visit the ruins of the 17th-century Crom Old Castle, the magical Culliagh Wood, the Old Saw Mill and the Crom Tea House.
Visitors staying in the west wing also have access to a hard tennis court and a rowing boat with outboard motor for exploring the lakes.
Noel Johnston, Manager, Crom Castle said: “We are delighted to welcome the Blandings cast and crew to Crom Castle and County Fermanagh”
“We already know what a spectacular location Crom Castle is and now it will be shared with millions of BBC viewers.”
Blandings will be aired on BBC One in the autumn.
