Embrace the magic of Pembrokeshire with a visit to Freshwater West, where Harry Potter himself has explored the sand dunes and strolled the sandy shores. Watch the later films and pause the movie when Dobby's Shell House makes an appearance - this temporary building was built purposefully for the production on location at Freshwater West but unfortunately, cannot be seen now as it was taken down when filming ceased. You can however, discover a significant gravestone along the beach (no character's name as we promise not to give out spoilers!). Stay nearby at The Rocket Carthouse, situated on the outskirts of Angle and just a couple of minutes’ drive from the popular beach at Freshwater West. This property is a Grade II listed building, once a Coastguard watchtower, meaning it boasts incredible panoramic sea views. Steeped in history, The Rocket Carthouse has played a significant role in Angle’s past – rockets were once stored where the living room is now whilst the property was acting as a base for the coastguard cliff rescue team.

Min Yr Afon is located in Lower Solva, just a stone’s throw from the idyllic harbour and nestled in the centre of the village where Welsh icons Rhys Ifans and Charlotte Church acted out the words of Dylan Thomas’ Under Milkwood, 2015. This quaint harbour-side village was taken over during production of this famous play of voices. Made up of a Cottage and an Annexe, Min Yr Afon can be booked as one or you can book choose to book them separately to suit smaller parties. The Cottage is traditional stone cottage sleeping 4 whilst the cosy annexe sleeps 2. Both are within walking distance of the local pubs, shops and galleries peppered along the high street.

Imitate Hollywood legends Gregory Peck (Moby Dick, 1956) and Richard Burton (Under Milk Wood, 1971) with a visit to Fishguard. Stay at Harbour Heights and take pleasure in stunning views from its position atop the cliffs at Fishguard Bay. Relax with a glass of wine on the decked balcony or cosy up in front of the wood burning stove. During your stay, why not do a little bit of shopping at the Farmers Market or take a wander along the harbour?

St Catherine’s Island is a clearly identifiable landmark for those familiar with the local landscape, but you will also have spotted it in series 4 of BBC's Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman; it is the destination used as the high security prison Sherrinford. The pair of famous actors were helicoptered onto South Beach during filming. Tenby’s South Beach makes for a perfect viewing point of the island, so why not stay just a short walk from South Beach where you can walk the sands imagining yourself to be the next Sherlock Holmes? Longmoor is just the property for you, a mid-Victorian terraced house sleeping 5 in three bedrooms and even accepts 1 pet. Longmoor retains its original character with stylish furnishings and even boasts an enclosed raised paved patio which acts as a sheltered sun trap!
