It’s finally here – The Great British Bake Off showdown is upon us – with an all-boy trio ready to bake for that coveted trophy and title.

If you’ve ever wondered where this popular show is filmed, it’s actually been shot at a number of locations.

The current series was shot entirely at Harptree Court, a stunning country house close to Bristol, over a ten-week period between June and August 2012.

Built in 1797, Harptree Court is set in the Chew Valley and has been a luxury family-run bed and breakfast since 2003.

Guests can enjoy walks in superb surroundings and the lucky ones even got to meet Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood when the Bake Off marquee was in full swing during the summer.
