Channel 4/Netflix Clerkenwell Films - April 2019
During April 2019 some scenes from The End Of The F***king World Season 2 were filmed on site at Trallwm Forest Cottages. The scenes focused around Heron cottage and the surrounding forest.
Adapted from Charles Forsman’s comic books and written by Charlie Covell the series focuses on two teenagers, played by Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden, on wild, unusual and often violent journey. After critical acclaim, with a huge fan following, a second series was commissioned by Channel 4 and Netflix. The show was created by Clerkenwell Films/Dominic Buchanan Productions for Channel 4 and Netflix. Series 2 was directed by Lucy Forbes and Destiny Ekaragha.
Over the course of 3 weeks the cottage was transformed into ‘Leigh’s House’ the forest cabin home of the main character’s Alyssa’s Aunt Leigh, played by Alexandra Riley. The construction teams and art department decorated the interiors, built a false fitted kitchen, changed lighting and even removed the fencing. Once this transformation was complete the filming could then begin. Around 50 crew members including actors, camera crew and caterers descended on the forest. Some staying in our cottages on site and some staying locally.
The entire crew were very professional and highly skilled in each particular aspect of the production.
The End Of The F****ing World Season 1 is available to watch on Channel4 and Netflix and Season 2 is available of Channel 4 now and will be on Netflix in 2020.

Over the 4 weeks the art departments transformed the interiors of Trawsgyrch cottage – boarding up windows, decorating. Siskin cottage also had a full exterior overhaul including adding a porch. The Welsh weather brought heavy snow which made travelling around our large site difficult. The crew were entirely professional and fantastic to work with
