Where was Rebecca filmed?

Fans of the story Rebecca are getting ready for the tale to be retold in a new Netflix adaptation.

The film follows the whirlwind romance of handsome widower Maxim de Winter (Armie Hammer) and his young new wife (Lily James) who go to live at his huge country manor, Manderley.

Of course, the estate holds many secrets about his late wife, Rebecca.

The series centres around the Manderley estate and we have all the details of which English manor was used to replicate it.

Cranborne Manor

Filming began in June 2019 at Cranborne Manor in Dorset.

The estate is used for Maxim de Winter' Manderley gothic mansion.

The manor dates back to around 1207/8, and was originally a hunting lodge.

It was remodelled for Robert Cecil, 1st Earl of Salisbury, in the early 17th century.

The grounds of the manor are only open on Wednesday afternoons to the general public.

However, the house is still occupied so there is no entry inside the mansion.

Hartland Quay

Filming also took place at Hartland Quay in Devon at the end of July 2019.

The dramatic coastline was chosen as it fits in perfectly with the stroyline and where the book is based.

Hartland Quay is located on the Atlantic coast of Devon, south of Hartland point and north of Bude, Cornwall.

It experiences some of the roughest seas in winter and is a former harbour.

The area has featured in a number of films, including Treasure Island (1950), The War Zone (1995), Element of Doubt (1996) and Solomon Kane (2009).

When is Rebecca released on Netflix and is there a trailer?

Fans have been patiently waiting for Rebecca to arrive on Netflix.

Rebecca will be dropping THIS WEDNESDAY (October 21, 2020).

It will be on the site from 8am that day.

The trailer has now been released, and you can watch at the top of this article.
