Shell Cottage Nears Completion
May 02, 2009, 02:53 PM
Construction is nearing completion on Shell Cottage, currently being built along the coastline of Wales for use in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Thanks to TLC reader Victoria, we have some nice new photos of the cottage, with the front door now in place, and an attic room or copula and twin chimneys now added to the structure. You can also see more of the beautiful location of this cottage (gorgeous in the sunlight, even with the scaffolding) as well as these photos of the platform now holding new mounds of dirt, which will serve as the site where Dobby is laid to rest. As reported many times previously, location filming with many of the primary cast members will take place starting Monday May 11th at Freshwater Beach, in Pembrokeshire area of Wales.
Thanks ever so much Victoria!
My gosh, gorgeous landscape really!! Although I always thought Shell Cottage was on a high place.
It is a stunning location and yes the house has Shells all over it, stunning, really amazing and clever. it is a very big house and in a beautiful place. I can’t wait to see it in the film, Its so sad that after 2 months this house will no longer excist because the Robin Hood film is also on location here so the house is being taken down. I am so lucky to live here. I will do my very best to take more pics while their filming….Im going down there next week with every intention to get some more amazing pictures. WISH ME LUCK xxxx Victoria
It looks very nice. Not exactly as I had pictured it but I like it anyway.
Victoria_price, the photos are beautiful.
Quick question, what is that on the opposite hill in the back ground, when your viewing the cottage from the back? I’m seeing a strange structure that looks strangely like a silhouette of Stonehenge. I’m weird I know. Just curious.
I keep hearing that old Sunday School ditty “the foolish man built his house upon the sand…” every time I look at these photos!
I don’t know what that is, but the location is right by an army barreks, with a shooting rang near by, or it could be a look out post because scomer island is right next door, and its kind of a nature reserve, if you know what I mean because that is the end of our welsh coast lookng out to sea, Il take a better look next week xx
Awesome, im so excited for both HBP and DH!!! Im counting down :D
Awesome! I wish I could see it in person!
I do agree that it looks maybe a bit big. I pictured it as just a small little place on the beach, but of course this is MUCH nicer! I love the shells, it really adds a nice touch.
Hey Sis, awesome pic’s of the cottage. Can’t wait to go and see it with you next week. Will defo bring my telephoto lens and hopefully will be able to get some really good close up pic’s of the place too. Until then love ya….WooHoo xxxx
Looks great! Can’t wait!
I cannot wait to see the finished product.
Awesome! Looks beautiful!
i love this teams design squad.
they could have more easily and cheaply tacked a bunch of ceramic cloth onto the back of the house and digitally composed seashells onto it, but they actually have built the whole thing.
too bad they’ll just take it down; it would be such a cool little monument.
its great to see this much work being requested from the film makers.
the funny thing is that the actual house won’t be used to do interior scenes, that’ll be another set i suppose.
walking outside of this castle will be amazing though.
keep blowing us away, wb.
shell cottage looks SO cool!!!! cant wait to see it in the movie!!!!!
