Second series of Keeping Faith returns on 23 July, filmed in Carmarthenshire

23 July sees the second series of Keeping Faith – a hugely successful thriller series filmed in Carmarthenshire – hitting the screens on BBC1 at 9pm.

This gripping drama stars Eve Myles as Faith Howells, a lawyer and mother who is drawn deeper and deeper into a web of conspiracy and lies after the sudden disappearance of her husband (played by her real-life other half Bradley Freegard).

Much of the filming took place in the pretty village of Laugharne, the former home and final resting place of Dylan Thomas.  The poet lived in The Boathouse overlooking the picturesque River Taff and, in the drama, Faith’s house – which actually belongs to a local couple – also overlooks the same stretch of water.

For those who fancy following in Faith’s footsteps, Coastal Cottages of Pembrokeshire is highlighting a selection of properties in and around Laugharne.  These include 2 Strand Cottage, a pretty fisherman’s cottage set on the banks of the River Taff and overlooking Dylan Thomas’ Boathouse and the ruins of the castle.
The property, with stunning views of the estuary, sleeps four in two bedrooms, and costs £799 for a week’s holiday in August or from £457 in September.

Or Chandler’s Cottage is a superb property – carefully restored and beautifully furnished – sleeping eight in four bedrooms.  In its terraced gardens there is a hot tub and a short stroll leads to shops, cafes and restaurants.  A week’s holiday in late August is priced at £1180 or from £1010 in September.

Extended and beautifully renovated, it offers light-filled open-plan living and four bedrooms for maximum flexibility. Seven nights arriving 20 July is now £2335 for up to eight people, saving a massive £584.
