BUDE, Tintagel, St Breward and Port Isaac have all been named in Visit Cornwall and Travelzoo’s ‘101 things to do in Cornwall’ guide.
Visit Cornwall have teamed up with travel deals company, Travelzoo, to launch a new definitive guide to Cornwall, just in time for Poldark fans to pay homage to their favourite TV programme which is currently hitting our screens on Sunday evenings.
The interactive ‘101 Things to Do’ site allows visitors to make the most of their time as they visit their favourite filming locations, including guidance such as what to do in and around Padstow, the backdrop to many a horse-drawn carriage scene; or Bodmin Moor and St Breward, which is home to Poldark’s home and the miners’ cottages.
Rosa Pedley, PR and communications manager at Visit Cornwall, said: “During the summer school holidays, Cornwall had just over 3.7 million trips, and with the return of Poldark to our screens this September, we’re looking forward to elongating the season and maximising the autumn months.
“There are so many great activities for holidaymakers to enjoy in Cornwall, and we’re hopeful that the guide we’ve created with Travelzoo will help visitors make the most of their time in this beautiful county.”
For general inspiration, browsing all 101 suggestions can help, or alternatively, readers can filter searches by categories that are most appealing to them, such as ‘eating and drinking’, ‘family friendly’ or ‘rainy-day rescues’.
The guide is free of charge, easy to use and can be accessed on any mobile device, which is handy when visitors are already out and about exploring Cornwall.
Joel Brandon-Bravo, UK managing director at Travelzoo, added: “It has been great working with Visit Cornwall on this, as we’ve found out about some real hidden gems that Cornwall has to offer — from catching your own dinner at sea, to visiting one of the UK’s rare monkey sanctuaries — there really is something for everyone.”
Within the guide, Bodmin and St Breward have been included, with the rural village of St Breward and the nearby Bodmin Moor being the perfect backdrop for many scenes in series one of Poldark, including his home, Nampara, and the miners’ cottages.
The guide advises visitors to visit St Breward, but also recommends to set off on a hike across Bodmin Moor to visit the famous Arthurian route, or for cyclists to hit the Camel Trail.
Twelfth on the list is Bude Sea Pool; number 20 is visiting the ruins of Tintagel Castle; eating at Nathan Outlaw’s restaurant in Port Isaac is at number 27; visiting the set of Doc Martin in Port Isaac is number 79 on the list; and taking a walk from Tintagel to Port Isaac hits 92 on the guide’s list.
