Everyday hundreds of new cases are discovered and there’s no known cure.
Yep… Cornwall is in the grip of Poldark Fever alright, and the only thing to do is to submit to the symptoms.
Early signs of the infection involve a fascination with windswept curls and corsets but as soon as you feel the urge to call your next born daughter Demelza and you begin considering the style merits of a three-cornered hat we’re afraid to say you are already in too deep and there’s no turning back.
The timeless beauty of Cornwall has made it the perfect set for filming the best tele we’ve seen in a long time. The fact much of our beautiful county is as it was in the 18th Century means that our favourite Poldark scenes had a high level of authenticity which has added to the appeal; along with the lead character’s rugged good looks of course.
To help support those suffering from Poldark Fever, Admaps have kindly put together a guide of the Poldark filming locations used by the BBC and you can download maps and information sheets about each location from their site www.poldarkguide.co.uk
The Bowgie Inn, Crantock is nestled comfortably between Bodmin Moor and St Breward and St Agnes Head – two prime Poldark filming locations – making us the perfect rest point when you’re immersing yourself in the 18th century.
SO get out there and get exploring the world of Poldark. Now although the Bowgie Inn wasn’t around in the 1700’s, we have it on good authority that if we were around, Poldark would have definitely enjoyed our Saturday Steak night and Sunday Roast.
