Executive producer Tim Kelly Describes the moment they found Looe:
"We travelled around lots of different places and were on the hunt to find somewhere that felt like a real town over a seaside resort. When we went to Looe, which is actually in Cornwall, it was a beautiful tourist town, but also a thriving community with fishing businesses, so we felt we had found our home."
Fictitious town of Shipton Abbott is portrayed as a town in Devon but is primarily filmed in Looe, our local fishing town only a short distance from Treworgey Cottages. There are many shots showing the Quay, Harbour and Pier.
