Discover Poldark’s Cornwall secrets
27 July 2015
This summer there’s no better time to discover the glorious Cornish locations that play a leading role in the recent hit BBC drama – Poldark.
Secret beaches, sheltered coves, dramatic coastlines are all used in the filming of the BBC’s popular show – here are three of our favourite Poldark locations!Porthgwarra Cove
Now we’re a little bit reluctant to share this first spot but it’s such a find with its crystal-clear turquoise water that you can see why Ross Poldark had a dip here. You won’t be able to resist the Cove’s charms either so make sure you pack your swimsuits. To get back to the top of the Cove, follow the tunnels and you’ll soon be sitting back at the café having a cream tea.Charlestown
The picturesque village of Charlestown in St Austell played the part of Truro in Poldark and it’s easy to see why. Famed for its collection of ships and traditional appearance it has long been a favourite for film settings, stretching back to 1929 in a silent movie. Today, not only has the BBC used it, but it’s also been used by Disney for Alice in Wonderland and Pirates of the Caribbean, plus a host of other TV shows and films. Charlestown is only 30 minutes away from Stonerush Lakes
and Southern Halt
Our newest site, Southern Halt
, has glorious, panoramic views across Bodmin Moor and if you have a little imagination you can see why Poldark spent a considerable amount of time galloping through the open moorland. So why not follow in his foot-steps and explore the spectacular scenery on horseback. You can also learn about the Moor’s stories and superstitions – if you’re brave enough!
Cornwall is packed with Poldark film locations and you can spend weeks and weeks exploring hundreds of other top locations. We could write pages here, but what would be better is for you this summer to share your favourite Poldark Cornish locations with us by visiting our Facebook
