Fans of the new 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, where the cast stayed during filming. 

Having woken up 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 the series as Tressiders Mill and is home to Cornwall’s only working beam engine.

If that’s not enough, further west is the beautiful Porthgwarra at the heart of St Aubyn Estates. This former fishing cove boasts a peaceful existence with its days surrounded by wildflowers and birdlife. The tunnel cut through the rock makes it perfect for swimming and rock pooling while the South West Coast Path offers unsurpassed views. Filming took place in the cove over a week, including one all night filming session.
