Line of Duty’s idyllic countryside cottage location revealed by holiday cottage experts

May 3, 2021

Twitter was abuzz with reactions to the series finale of Line of Duty on Sunday night -including many people querying how to get themselves into witness protection, given Jo Davidson’s new beautiful countryside cottage.

The online response to the series six finale of the BBC’s undercover crime thriller Line of Duty has been mixed, but one thing viewers agreed on was that DCI Jo Davidson’s witness protection situation looked remarkably better than Gill Bigelow’s.

A short scene showed Davidson leaving a stunning stone cottage in an undisclosed location with a new partner and a bounding golden retriever - a far cry from the life her character was born into. Google Trends data shows the spike in public interest in the cottage from Line of Duty on the night the show aired, continuing into bank holiday Monday.

Sleuths at holiday cottage site Last Minute Cottages believe that they have found the location of the cottage - and can reveal that it is in the picturesque Vale of Glamorgan, in South Wales.

The red-doored cottage in the programme has been likened by many on Twitter to the home in 2006’s romantic comedy ‘The Holiday’.

With hundreds of cottages available onsite, a search shows that there are many cottages available to book from now and through the summer.

This search link, ranked by property popularity, highlights some luxurious stays around the region, perfect for Line of Duty fans hoping for a picture-perfect UK holiday, without needing to be put on witness protection.

Properties include The Bake House in Garw Valley, The Old Stable in Llanelly, and a similarly stone-bricked four bed house in Crickhowell.

Matt Fox, CEO and co-founder of Last Minute Cottages said,

“Our CHIS really came through to help us discover Jo’s location, and while we’re confident in our investigation findings, we will only say that we believe that the cottage is in the Vale of Glamorgan.

“The region is home to many incredible holiday cottages still available for this summer, many of which are, like Jo and her partner’s house, dog-friendly.”
