The Site

The Site

Langleybury Estate sits on land to the east of Langleybury Lane in Kings Langley. The estate is owned by Ralph Trustees Limited (RTL), a family-owned hospitality business best known for owning and developing The Grove Hotel, a five-star development set in 300 acres of Hertfordshire countryside. RTL acquired the Langleybury Estate (more recently adding the stable block, cottages and Home Farm) in 2007.


The Grade II* listed Langleybury Mansion, which sits at the heart of the Langleybury Estate, has been in use as a film location for the past 10 years, during which time it has become one of the most prolific sites for filming in the UK. As one of the few vacant, period manor houses available for film use, Langleybury Mansion has hosted well in excess of 100 different productions during this time.

Amened Scheme

Main Amendments

The Masterplan has been amended to reflect feedback received on the scheme from a variety of parties including TRDC Officers, statutory consultees, Parish and TRDC Councillors and local resident groups/residents.


The key changes made are as follows:

  • The total quantum of Development (gross external area) has been substantially reduced by circa 28.5% from 54,996 sq.m. down to 39,314 sq. m.


  • The removal of 2 sound stages from the main southern block and the relocation of the 2 sound stages at the southernmost part of the site, to the edge of Langleybury Lane, reducing the impact on views across the parkland.


  • The new education/commercial building has been reduced in both area and height and positioned further back from the brow of the hill to ensure the prominence of the Mansion House is retained.

  • The green break/valley between the craft zone and the south site has been significantly increased the building to building distance has increased from 108m to 263m as part of this resubmission.


  • All buildings adjacent to Langleybury Lane are now built into the ground to minimise perceived height from the lane.


  • Creation of a new green courtyard in front of the E-Shaped Barn, enabling a visual and physical link to the historic core.

A full list of all the changes is contained within the Resubmission Cover Letter  which can be found below.
