On the Poldark Trail in Cornwall
Much of the action in the new BBC adaptation of Poldark takes place against the backdrop of Cornwall’s gorgeous rugged coastline, meaning guests at our Fowey Hall hotel are well sited to follow in the footsteps of Ross Poldark, the dashing Army officer who returns to England after the American War of Independence to discover that his fiancée Elizabeth is about to marry his cousin.
Poldark is based on the acclaimed novels of Winston Graham, set in the 18th century and inspired by the town of Truro, 22 miles from Fowey Hall. The shipwreck scenes were shot on the Lizard Peninsula, and Poldark Mine just outside Helston, is the only complete underground mine open to the public in Cornwall and Devon.
