For those spending their holidays in Pembrokeshire cottages, a visit to Marloes Sands is a must. Not only because it is one of the most beautiful beaches in Wales, but because you will be treading on the same sand as some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

Snow White and the Huntsman was released last month and stars Kristen Stewart, of Twighlight fame, and Chris Hemsworth, of Avengers fame. The adaptation of the classic Brothers’ Grimm novel sees Hemsworth (the Huntsman) sent on a mission to kill Stewart (Snow White herself), only to change sides and end up protecting Snow White.

Producers shunned opportunities to film scenes for the new fairytale in Bali and Hawaii, and instead chose Pembrokeshire’s Marloes Sands. It cannot be a complete surprise though, considering Marloes was named the 2nd best coastal destination in the world by National Geographic in 2010.

With such a beautiful and highly ranked beach being within driving distance, it’s hard to come up with a reason not to visit Marloes Sands during a stay in our Pembrokeshire cottages. Who knows, you may just bump into a Hollywood superstar on your stroll along the beach!
