In July 2020 an International Film Actress, playing the Lead in a new Pinewood Studios production, quarantined at St. Swithins Cottage.

The Production Team had to comply with strict Health & Safety legislation as laid down by their insurers and so an in-depth Risk Assessment had to be performed on the accommodation.

The actress wanted an "Escape to the Countryside" experience rather than being , effectively, imprisoned  in a London hotel so privacy, safety and seclusion were essential.

St. Swithins Cottage was the answer.
