The Pact filming locations

Where is the house in The Pact?

The Rees family home is situated on the coast at Llantwit Major.

Creator Pete McTighe said the location scouts found the perfect location which was exactly what he had imagined.

He said: "On the page and in my head, it was this isolated house on the coast, which sounds easy to write and easy to find but of course it turned out not to be.

"Our locations people did an incredible job tracking that down. That house is like a private refuge, this atmospheric, mysterious, slightly claustrophobic sanctuary.

“It’s almost like something from a ghost story, which is appropriate because the family is kind of haunted in a way by what has happened to one of their own. They pulled a rabbit out of the hat when they found that house. It’s exactly what was in my head."
