A favourite beach of mine, and many others, is Kynance Cove. There's stacks of stones and silky sand, with a hidden beach revealed at low tide -  and a tasty cafe all making this a must visit.

Poldark Second Series has Started Filming

Like the first series the second is to be filmed across our beautiful Cornwall, and rumour has it filming started a couple of days ago.



For the first series we saw beautifully lit locations like the rugged Bodmin Moor with Poldark's house being located near St Breward, shots of the historic Charlestown harbour with its tall ships and the coastline of Botallack to Levant dotted with tin mines. Our beautiful beaches like Church Cove and Porthgwarra served as stunning backdrops to dramatic scenes of love and loss.



Keep your eyes peeled and you might just catch a glimpse of Aiden Turner hard at work!
