Share this:

Romantic comedy About Time took cinemas by storm when it was released in 2013.Shot on the south cast of Cornwall during the summer of 2012, the film tells the tale of a time travelling quest for love, shot by Richard Curtis of Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill fame. 

It fits the same mould as his previous hits, but with an extra message – to learn to stop and savour key moments in our life. Now out on DVD, it's one to watch.

If you're inspired by the film, why not take a trip to the south west coast? The stunning views of Cornwall provides the perfect backdrop for this feel-good film.

Owner Martin Petherick looked on two summers ago as an art team came and transformed his house, before the film crew arrived to shoot scenes for three weeks.
