Goathland train station near Scarborough has seen its fair share of cameras and film crews over the years. The TV series Heartbeat was filmed in Goathland and the station was used for certain scenes. But it was when it was used as the fictional station at Hogsmeade in the first Harry Potter film – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, that it truly attained its place in the locations hall of fame.
Barnet House is a four-bedroom home set opposite the station and enjoys the view down onto one of the most famous platforms in the UK. The house even comes complete with its own slice of train track, though luckily the only trains that chug along it and under the bridge are steam ones on a tourist line.
If a fan of the boy wizard were to buy this property they would be able to look out their window every day and see where all those wizards and witches boarded the Hogwarts Express. And should there be any more filming they’ll have ringside seats watching all the action.
Unfortunately the house itself didn’t appear in the Harry Potter film. Although the cameras were pointing in the correct direction, some mean wizards in the cutting room performed some magic and airbrushed out the house. Must be relatives of Voldemort!
