De Vere House Features in Harry Potter

More recently the House appeared as parts of Godric’s Hollow in the Harry Potter film Deathly Hallows Part One (and in the PSP, Gameboy and Xbox games of the film) also being used in two of the official Christmas Cards produced by Warner Bros. In the filming of Harry Potter, different parts of De Vere House were cut and paste to make up the whole of Godric’s Hollow. Filmed during the summer, the special effects team added winter snow (even pasting a Christmas tree into our front bay window together with the sound of Christmas carols in the background)

The house is often referred to as “The Harry Potter House” by locals, in the media and a huge picture of our front door can be seen at the Warner Bros’ Exhibition on the making of Harry Potter

This shot from the film combines De Vere House, Molet House and the Bank House in Lavenham (the small box trees and door gables are ours for example, whilst the door is based on that of our house back in the 1880s)
