Nothing will bring more focus and attention to an area than a blockbuster movie being filmed in its locality. With the latest version of Robin Hood, starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, being filmed in Pembrokeshire, the whole world is set to get a real eyeful of the stunning Pembrokeshire coastline in south west Wales. A month before Robin Hood, Harry Potter was also being filmed there, so it would seem that the media focus on the area is set to continue.
The locality has a wealth of castles and beaches, plus any number of quality hotels and cafes for both tourists and film crews alike coming to the area. One café, near Bosherston, has already won the heart of Russell Crowe with their freshly brewed loose tea, iced sponges and scones.
New boutique hotels such as The Grove are also attracting famous visitors such as Ridley Scott and Cate Blanchett. The hotel was originally an 18th century mansion which has been restored to its former glory. The chef who used to work with Raymond Blanc serves locally caught and sourced ingredients in the panelled dining room, and the bedrooms all have ample bathrooms and are furnished with antique furniture.
Although Robin Hood supposedly came from Nottingham, not Wales, Pembrokeshire is a beautiful example of Britain (or Wales) at its best and is bound to benefit from all this media coverage.
Boutique hotels and antique furniture all form part of the holiday experience when coming to areas like these. When buying antique dining chairs in Cumbria, Lancashire, south west Wales and other British beauty spots, local antiques dealers are there to complement your holiday experience.
