A tour of great variety that celebrates the Poldark series in style
This diverse tour visits both the rugged North and gentler South coasts of Cornwall, as well as taking in some of the moors. I will take you to a spot on Bodmin Moor where, on a clear day, you can see both the North and South coasts of Cornwall.
We'll also visit some beautiful and enchanting scenery, with granite boulders and crystal clear streams.
We will visit many well known filming locations as well as one or two of the more secret ones!
From the charm of Charlestown harbour to wild Bodmin Moor we will follow the footsteps of Ross Poldark. Imagine Ross and Demelza on the rugged clifftops of North Cornwall as we visit the most magnificent locations where the series was filmed.
I can offer a unique insight to one location in particular as the Poldark film crew set up in the back yard of our farmhouse during the filming of the first series. They used this location for some of the most spectacular cliff side scenes. I know this area well as I grew up here and still live here now!
I will collect you after your breakfast. We'll head straight to Charlestown, on Cornwall's south coast, a world heritage site which posed as Poldark's Truro.
Onward to Bodmin Moor where outdoor shots of Nampara were filmed as well as many horseback scenes.
We'll stop for lunch in a highly regarded old Cornish Inn, then we'll make our way to a secret location on the North Cornish coast, near Padstow.
From here we'll follow the coast road down through Porthcothan, Mawgan Porth and Watergate Bay.
Moving onto Perranporth which was the home of Winston Graham, the author of the Poldark novels, we'll then visit Wheal Coates, St Agnes Head and Chapel Porth. Many of Poldark's gallops along the rugged Cornish clifftops were filmed on the cliffs of Chapel Porth. From here, you get magnificent panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.
If time allows we'll stop for a cream tea before returning to your accommodation at about 5. 00pm.
