First Look! Shell Cottage Under Construction in Wales

Several weeks ago we reported filming for the Shell Cottage scenes would take place in Wales, with crews due to arrive for work before the main filming next month. Today, TLC is delighted to bring you the first photos of the house under construction on the coastline in the Pembrokeshire area of Wales. Notably, as seen here, we can see the details of the stone house being built, on a beautiful coastline, all which will be the site of the emotional scenes with the Trio and dear Dobby.  You can see the rest of these photos here in our image galleries.

The main filming for the Shell cottage scenes are due to take place on location next month, May 11 to May 15th, in Wales.

Thanks ever so much J & M!

The cottage itself is beautiful….but the location is not remotely how I pictured it. I think I did a sketch of it once where it is on this sort of cliff top overlooking the ocean. This still works well I think, it’s just not what I was expecting.

I want to live there!

Sets like this are why I don’t complain about WB being after the money – the fact that the films take in so much money (due partlt to reschedulings) is why the films have such terrific budgets and can creat such fantastic sets in such wonderful; settings!

Looks great. I’m still not sure how you can bury Dobby in the sand though, but I guess that’s what magic is for.

I think it’ll look even more awesome in May!! I imagined the scenes in a different way, though.
