Movie Set: Porthpean House from the movie ‘About Time’ (2013)

Well, we got another production setting of a movie that was starred by Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson back in 2013 — that was at the Porthpean House in Cornwall. Remember ‘About Time‘?

About Time is a 2013 British romantic comedy-drama film about a young man with the special ability to time travel and so tries to change his past in order to improve his future — and in the process, Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) decided to use his gift to get a girlfriend (Rachel McAdams) he’d marry. Sure sounds nice. So, let’s get to see where the movie was filmed..

Okay, that is what you’d see upon entering the house. Notice, those are two angles actually. Simple and homey, huh?!

Yes, that’s how it looked like — blue woodwork — on the movie. And yup, you can actually rent the Porthpean House for specials events and holidays; which is what ‘About Time’ did back then.

While the dining room in the listing is bright; in the movie, it was kinda ‘subdued’ and was used as the library.

And the staircase? Typical? Hmm… white just makes it look good.

How about the bedrooms? Neat, eh?! The house is said to have 12 bedrooms in fact and 8 bathrooms. Ah cool, we could all fit in! Hah!

In case you were wondering how the ‘actual’ side of the house looked like — there you go, see the above. In the film, it was where Tim and his family watched movies even when it was raining..!

In all, the location is just great as the house is planted on 10 acres of natural beauty. And as the listing says, it’s located between the maritime villages of Charlestown and Pentewan and hidden below the china clay town of St. Austell; making Porthpean Beach a perfect place for holidays with rock pools, calm waters and warm shallows for swimming..

Oh well, better start saving for it.
