Poldark is back! We can’t wait to see Poldark return for the fourth series – we’ll be glued to our screens at 9pm on Sunday 10th June. We were lucky enough to have the the cast and crew stay with us during filming so Poldark has a special place in our hearts here at Landal Gwel an Mor. Here are our top 5 filming locations, all just a short hop from us…
If you’ve admired the scenery (not just the actors!) while the cast gallop across windswept cliffs then this is the perfect place for you to explore. Take a walk on the wild side and you’ll discover these quiet headlands are home to sea birds, wildflowers and sweeping coastal views.
One of the most picture perfect places in Cornwall, and that’s saying something! A tiny fishing cove with a rock tunnel (where Ross Poldark kept his boat), crystal clear waters (from THAT swimming scene!), beautiful boats and seals to spot!
Wheal Coates & St Agnes Head
These cliff top mine buildings and headlands are instantly recognisable from many scenes in Poldark, including the opening titles and the cliff-hanger at the end of series one. Stand on the spot where Demelza gazes out to sea or explore ‘Nampara Valley’ or stroll around the old mine works.
This beautiful harbour is the star of many TV shows and films including Poldark where it stands in for both Truro and Falmouth. With its square rigger ships moored up alongside the quay and the quaint cottages leading down to the sea it’s a great spot for an ice cream and a wander on a sunny afternoon.
Take a guided tour to explore the underground passages of this mine and get a feel for mining life. The narrow passages and caves of this mine were the perfect filming location for the underground scenes.
