Sex Education is known for heartfelt moments, hilarious sex scenes and frustrating cliffhangers (aka voicemail-gate), but even with all that, we can't stop thinking about the house. You know the one, Jean and Otis's huge red chalet perched on the edge of a lush green valley. If you're as obsessed with it as we are, we've got good news for you. Not only is house available to rent, but we've also gathered together all the key filming locations from the series for your perusal. See you at the chalet, pals.

Jean Milburn's Chalet

Obviously, we're going to start with the most important one. The giant red house where Otis (Asa Butterfield) and his mum Jean (Gillian Anderson) live really and truly exists, and it's only up the road in the Wye Valley, right on the border between England and Wales.

The Chalet at Symonds Yat, the exterior of the house is what's shown in all those incredible shots of Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) picking up Otis for school. The 10-person chalet has its own Instagram, filled with snaps of the rural area and ridiculous views, plus the interior decor is just a little bit dreamy, with multiple decks, a pizza oven, garden and woodland. And if all that weren't enough it's available to rent as a holiday home. Quick trip, anyone?

Moordale High

The school that Otis, Maeve (Emma Mackey) and the gang all go to is the fictional Moordale High, the exterior of which is filmed at Caerleon Campus in North Wales.

The 32-acre plot was once part of the University of Wales but has stood vacant since its closure in 2016. The US-inspired clock tower features heavily in the series.

Maeve's Caravan Park

Lots of drama takes place at the caravan park where Maeve lives, from all the stuff with her mum, to the Isaac deleting the voicemail Otis left Maeve telling her he loved her, it's a pretty key location in the series.

All the caravan park scenes are filmed at Sterrett's Caravan Park and Campsite also in the Wye Valley at Symonds Yat West.

The Village Shop

Ola (Patricia Allison), Adam and Rahim (Sami Outalbali) all work at the local village shop at some time or another, and a lot goes down in here. The exterior of the shop doesn't change a huge amount for the show, not even the name of it.

Brown's Village Stores, named after the couple who own it, Roger and Ruth Brown, is located in a town on the Welsh coast named Llandogo. Plus, the shop was opened all the way back in 1928, which is shown on the sign hanging outside it in one of the scenes from the series.

Aimee's House

Back in one of the earlier series Aimee Gibbs (played by Aimee Lou Wood) has a house party which ends up being super dramatic (don't they always?), but it's also one of the moments we get a glimpse of her incredible mansion.

Bigsweir House, a Grade II-listed property overlooking the River Wye was used as the location for Aimee's mega-mansion, and while we'd love to do a full Sex-Ed tour from Otis's house to Aimee's, this one is privately owned.
