Harry Potter fans gathered to see the magic unfold at Freshwater West beach over the weekend, as set construction began on the 'Shell Cottage'.

With filming for the new Harry Potter movie, named Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, due to take place at between May 11th and May 15th, excitement and curiosity has seen locals and visitors head west for a sneak preview.

The set for the Shell Cottage scene, which features in Chapter 25 of the novel, will see J K Rowling's much loved characters come to life at one of Pembrokeshire's popular coastal destinations.

It is thought that filming for the world famous Harry Potter movies and the new Robin Hood epic will provide a significant boost for tourism in Pembrokeshire this year.
