Poldark is back and we’re just a tiny bit excited! The design studios have been a buzz with anticipation for the return of the rugged
Aiden Turner Cornish scenery to our screens. The hit BBC drama is filmed all around Cornwall, and in many of the same locations we’ve used to shoot our collections. We spend a lot of time exploring our beloved county and although we haven’t bumped into the Poldark stars just yet we have visited a lot of the film locations, here are a few of our favourites…
Botallack to Levant
The ruined mines along the coast from Botallack to Levant provide the home for both Wheal Leisure, (Poldark’s mines), and Tressiders Rolling Mill. Some clever CGI has rebuilt them to appear just as they would once have been.
This beautiful sandy cove is steeped in smuggling history and is well known for its shipwrecks. Gunwalloe was taken over by the Poldark cast crew to film a night-time shipwrecking scene.
Bodmin’s rugged scenery makes the perfect backdrop for Poldark’s Cornwall. Many of the horseback scenes were filmed up on the moor, and it’s also home to the exterior shots of Ross Poldark’s Nampara.
The mining landscape of St Agnes makes it the perfect location to film Poldark. Despite being around a 30 mile drive to Botallack, the engine houses around the St Agnes coastline add to the Poldark Estate.
Poldark’s beloved Nampara Cove is actually partly filmed down on the Lizard at Kynance Cove, one of our favourite swimming spots.
In support of the Fishermen’s Mission, the lovely Eleanor Tomlinson, otherwise known as Demelza, has designed an exclusive Poldark themed jute bag, just for us. You can pick up your Poldark inspired Charity Jute bag here.
We love Poldark, and we can’t wait to tune in on Sunday night and spot some more of our favourite Cornish locations.
