Welcome to Beechwood Downs: Falling Inn Love Filming Locations Guide

Posted by

Falling Inn Love was filmed entirely in New Zealand's North Island. The filming location of the fictional village of Beechwood Downs is a small and picturesque town called Thames.

After losing her job and breaking up with her boyfriend, Gabriela Diaz (played by Christina Milian), leaves San Francisco to claim an inn won in a strange Internet contest.

The house turns out to be a sort of money pit, but she meets the hot local guy Jake (Adam Demos), who can help to transform the house into an environmentally friendly home.

New Zealand is one of our favorite places, so we can't miss the chance to explore the country a little bit more, this time following the story of Netflix's romantic comedy Falling Inn Love.

The house doubling as the Bellbird Valley Farm is located quite far away from Thames.
