Saddle up for Hallagenna’s horse riding trail across Bodmin Moor, taking in some of the stunning filming locations behind the BBC’s Poldark remake.
Fans of the newly finished series can join Hallagenna Riding School on the Poldark Trail across Bodmin Moor, the TV location where many of Poldark’s riding scenes were filmed.
During the two or four hour-long trek, you’ll walk, canter and trot across the moor’s rugged wilds, passing in the shadow of granite tors and through leafy woodland. You’ll also see Brown Willy (Cornwall’s highest point) and numerous ancient settlements.
Then it’s time to relax and submerge yourself in the bubbling warmth of your own private hot tub at the Retallack Resort and Spa, near Padstow - this was a popular spot for the Poldark cast during filming.
Having woken up fully rested in your lakeside lodge, head to Cornwall’s western tip where, nestled in the cliffs overlooking the sea, you’ll find Levant Mine. Part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, it stars in Poldark as Tressiders Rolling Mill and is currently home to Cornwall’s only working beam engine.
If that’s not enough, further west is the beautiful Porthgwarra Beach at the heart of St Aubyn Estates. This former fishing cove boasts a peaceful existence, thanks to its secluded location; the path cut through the rock makes it perfect for swimming and rock pooling. Filming took place in the cove for over a week, with scenes at Porthgwarra scattered throughout the first two seasons.
