Location filming news continues for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. While the London filming is still underway, following now is more on the location filming for the Shell Cottage scenes due to take place in Wales next month. The BBC reports the actual dates of filming on the coastline of Wales will take place May 11th through the 15th on Freshwater West beach of the Pembrokeshire National Park. (You can learn more about the beach here). The BBC article notes:

Pembrokeshire council cabinet member Rob Lewis said they would only
take place when needed by the film crews – and would not effect
pedestrians, emergency vehicles or residents.He said the benefits of filming would outweigh any temporary disruption.

“The decision to film parts of Harry Potter and Robin Hood in our
county this summer is a fantastic development, which will bring
benefits to our economy and the tourist industry,” he said.”Such high profile films with big stars bring with them huge film crews which can considerably boost an area’s economy.”It will particularly help many small businesses, which need all the help they can get in these difficult times.

Warner Bros indicated they would be taking extra steps to ensure any disruption to the beautiful beach area would be minor. “Responding to concerns on the Facebook site, Warner Brothers – the
company behind the Harry Potter franchise – said it would have a
maximum crew of 200. It said there would be a letter drop in the local community to
outline its plans and pledged the beach and dunes would be litter
picked every day they were on site.”

Hope they show us some pictures while they are filming there. I'm waiting to see one of Bill. It seems so strange to be getting all this info on DH when we haven't seen HBP movie yet.Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: very coolAvatar Imagedragonsmaidan says: The beach is so Beautiful I can't wait to see it on filmAvatar Imagesunshine123 says: cool. i wonder if we will get to see what the cottage will look like. i also wonder who will be there. i mean obviously the rio but maybe Bill or Fleur even. loving all the dh news. long live HP!!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: It goes without saying that the set they have selected is fantastic and will complement the story well! I cannot wait to see pictures of the cottage soon!Avatar Imageravenclaw1028 says: So exciting! I really really hope that they have Fleur cast for this, though.Avatar Imagelilhpchick20 says: YaY more updates.Avatar ImageMatea says: it looks nice,but I'm more interested in the house and the cliffs.Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: Perfect beach, in my mind!Avatar ImageRita_Dumbledore94 says: great!Avatar ImageStefanM94 says: this is the third part of great britain to be shot as part of the deathly hallows movie(s). Unlucky, Northern Ireland :) even tho i say that, i havent been to see any real-life footage yet so i cant talk :S i cant believe there has been so much info on DH shooting and HBP isnt even out yet :( we don't eve nhave a casting list for DH! Avatar Imagelinnie95 says: This is a beautiful spot. Can't wait to see this.Avatar Imageslwarren says: It would be disappointing to have no Phlegm at Shell Cottage. But, we haven't heard any casting news on this confirmation of Clemence Posey returning or a new actor cast for the part. It will be interesting to see what they do with this scene if Fleur isn't cast.Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: Yeah I hope they get the scene where Ron is carrying Hermione. That would make my day even more! I wish Fleur was in the film.Avatar Imagebella vita says: Wow it feels weird that they are filming "Shell Cottage" this soon when we haven't even heard rumors let alone facts regarding the casting of Fleur. It makes me quite anxious because I really really want Fleur in the last films and I adore Clemence Poesy so I will be extremely disappointed if there is no Fleur or Clemence in DH. I suppose I could live if they had to cast someone else to play Fleur, but for the love of god just cast someone already! I'll take anyone at this point! Just give us some "Phlegm"! lolAvatar Imagequoddy says: That beach is pretty epic. But I wonder how shelly they'll make shell cottage? :\Avatar Imagebudgie says: Beautiful beach area! I hope they have Fleur too. The beach cottage and wedding both make more sense with her than without.Avatar Imagesavingharry says: I do think it is interesting that they are, true to word, filming parts of both films at the same time. This is, in the end, a convenient way to film, and means that hopes are good for them being able to really do the fall-then-summer, back-to-back releases of parts I and II. Avatar ImageMiss_Mimz says: Oh man I love love love getting DH news! Its so exciting I cant wait to see it ♥Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: This is wonderful news. Avatar Imagesiriuslysirius11 says: That's cool! I wonder if they'll be casting Fleur any time soon?Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: That's cool. I hope someone who lives by there can send in pics or something.Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: cool.its defenly going to be preety.Avatar ImageKatetheKeeper says: There's so much DH news!

That'll be interesting to see. More exciting news!Avatar ImageMr. Ollivander says: so excited can't waitAvatar Imagemuzic823 says: This looks like a beautiful site! Very fitting for Shell Cottage.Avatar Imagesplinch says: They should leave dobbys grave as a tourist attraction i think, sounds kinda greusome but really, you would totally go see it and leave a sock or hat or something, could be a charity thing for clothes for homeless children. here lies dobby, free elf.Avatar ImageBonnie Radcliffe says: I just got to know that Rupert Grint's Cherrybomb will be screened at Cannes Film Festival.
