Well, we had to didn’t we…
Now that Poldark is back on our screens, Cornwall has another on screen outing that shows off just how rugged, windswept, romantic, passionate, beautiful, dramatic and full of mines it really is.
So .. where have they been filming this time round? Not all the locations are actually in Cornwall, but here are the ones that are ..

Nampara and all that riding across rugged terrain
Nampara is Ross Poldark’s cottage and the location of the cottage they used for the exterior shots (actually, it’s rather larger than it looks on screen), is near St Breward. Good luck with searching it out! Other shots of miners’ cottages and the tracks around Nampara were also shot on Bodmin Moor.

Nampara Cove was filmed around Padstow, Porthcothan Bay to be precise. All that sand – hard to miss!

Shipwrecks and dramatic cliffs
There would be no point at all in going anywhere but Cornwall for these sort of shots. North Cornwall boasts some of the most dramatic and breathtaking views you can imagine. The night time shipwreck (one of so many around Cornwall) was filmed at Church Cove, Gunwalloe. The church there is well worth a visit and given the location, you’d be forgiven for wondering how it’s survived!
