We’ve already covered seven key filming locations from series one of Poldark in Cornwall. Thankfully, Ross Poldark returned to our screens for a second series of the period drama in 2016. To celebrate, we bring you ten (more) Cornish filming locations you might have spotted Aidan Turner and the BBC camera crew in earlier this year.
The historic National Trust Levant Mine and 1840s Beam Engine, sits at the top of the exposed cliffs, overlooking the waves that lap the Cornish coast. The location in Trewellard was the perfect choice for filmmakers to represent Tressiders Rolling Mill.
For shots panning across the beautiful Cornish landscape, the filming crew picked Padstow’s stunning Camel Estuary and Tregirls beach. For those who fancy a luxurious break in a scenic setting, why not stay at the Treglos Hotel or Retallack Resort like the Poldark cast did while filming in the town?
Another National Trust treasure has had its limelight in this historical series; the beach at Church Cove is a prime location in the shipwreck scenes. These scenes were filmed in the late evening with the backdrop of St Wynwallow church. Situated on the Lizard Peninsula nearby, Mullion Cove is where Aidan Turner and the rest of the cast were staying when they were filming in Gunwalloe.
Ross Poldark’s fictional cottage, Nampara, sits near Cornwall’s own Porthcothan, a gorgeous stretch of coastline surrounded by lush grassy, golden dunes nestled between Padstow and Newquay.
On the north Cornwall coast sits this beautiful stretch of headland where a few of the scenes delivered mesmerising views across the Bedruthan Steps. Ross Poldark has been seen galloping across the headland during the second series.
The stunning setting of Holywell has provided the backdrop to some scenes during the second series. The golden sands, bursting with flora, make a perfect setting to make the series come alive.
Home to Poldark’s Nampara Cove are the fine, soft sands of Porthcurno beach, nestled below the towering cliffs above. During the second episode of series two, Demelza and Ross are filmed strolling along the coast on a beautifully sunny day.
With wild flowers scattered along the cliffs, this paints the perfect setting for many of the horseback charges in Poldark’s action scenes.
Picturesque views from the Gwennap headland attracted producers to its location, where they can look over the Penwith peninsula; with crystal waters so clear they mirror your reflection.
Filmmakers fell in love with the small Cornish village of St Breward, where some of the scenes were shot. The cast spent their downtime in the nearby Hallagenna Riding Stables and Cottages.
