Now that filming for Poldark’s last season has come to an end, we’re taking a look at all the locations in and around Cornwall made famous by the hit BBC show! Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson, who played the lead roles, posed for final pictures as the show wrapped for the final time. Season 5 of Poldark is due to air this June and we can’t wait.
Holywell Bay –
Here at Trevornick, we are lucky enough to be a short 15-minute walk from Holywell Bay – one of the popular locations to spot the Poldark actors. The never-ending golden sands of Holywell Bay and the famous view of Gull rocks in the distance featured multiple times throughout all 4 series. We’ve been fortunate enough to see the filming up close, however now filming is over you will have to recreate the scenes for yourself in front of this show-stopping background!
Park Head –
The rough seas and sloping cliffs sum up Poldark in one photo. Scenes of horses galloping along this headland will be on our screens for the final time very soon!
Porthcurno’s natural beauty of a sheltered soft white beach and bright blue seas, there was no better place to film Poldark’s Nampara Cove.
Kynance Cove –
This idyllic beach also doubles up as Nampara Cove just like Porthcurno. Kynance Cove is known for its glistening blue water and we definitely recommend visiting here whilst on holiday with us in Cornwall.
With a strong smuggling history, Gunwalloe went back in time when the cast visited to film scenes there, tapping into its heritage. This is a wonderful place to visit if you want to see Cornwall’s true essence.
Botallack to Levant –
With Cornwall’s strong mining history the main feature in Poldark, this stretch of cliffs between Botallack along to Levant is the ideal place to play the role of Ross’ Wheel Leisure. Take a walk along this coastal path to see the mines with stunning sea backdrops.
St Agnes Head –
Just like the view from Botallack to Levant, St. Agnes head fitted in with the Cornish mining theme in the story. You can walk straight from the Trevornick site, along the coast path to St.Anges, visiting other Cornish beaches including Perranporth.
Bodmin Moor –
Bodmin Moor was used a lot throughout filming, with vast rugged land, it is the perfect backdrop for the horseback riding scenes. Scenes outside Ross Poldark’s cottage are also filmed here!
