Poldark holiday cottages

There are some great places to stay in Cornwall where you can see the best of Poldark’s county. Some of these holiday cottages were even used in the filming for both the original (1975) TV series, and the recent BBC version. Take a look and see if any inspire your next holiday. Plus, all income from holiday cottages goes directly to the National Trust’s conservation work, helping to keep Cornwall beautiful.

Doyden Castle, Port Quin

Doyden Castle 

Many people dream of living in a castle, high up on the cliffs, regally surveying the ocean or stepping out through Gothic archways onto the springy turf and looking down from their citadel onto the valley below. The holiday home sleeps 2 and was even used in the original (1975) TV series as Dr Eny’s house.

Count House Cottage, near Botallack, Cornwall

Count House Cottage 

A cosy cottage for two close to the dramatic cliffs of West Cornwall with amazing views over the turbulent Atlantic Ocean. The cottage was once a workshop and is close to the Botallack Mine Count House, a key location of the Mining World Heritage Site. It is surrounded by reminders of its mining past with remains of old mine engines. These engine houses feature extensively in the 2015 Poldark series.

Holiday cottage view from the beach in Cornwall

Carolina Cellar, Port Quin 

Originally a pilchard cellar where the huge hauls of fish landed on the beach would be brought for salting and pressing, the first floor of this stone building - once used for storing nets - is now a holiday apartment that commands breathtaking views over the inlet towards the open sea.

Lacombe Cottage, Port Quin  

Used as Capitan Blamey’s house in the most recent TV series of Poldark, Lacombe is a perfect example of traditional Cornish cottage: low ceilings, original open beams and a solid-fuel stove all add to the charm and character of this exceptionally pretty former fisherman's cottage.

Quin Cottage in Cornwall

Quin Cottage 

One of two former fishermen’s cottages, Quin Cottage is metres away from the beach. You couldn't get much closer to the sea than this: With an elevated and enclosed garden just a few steps along the lane, the cottage offers a traditional Cornish seaside holiday. The South West Coast Path is on your doorstep, with stunning views in either direction.

Holiday Cottage at Trerice

The West Wing

A rare chance to stay in a beautiful historic house, whilst enjoying the benefit of some more modern luxuries. This first-floor apartment in Trerice's west wing is in the very heart of a busy and much-loved house and estate, yet it makes a very private and peaceful place to retreat to, and was once used in the filming of the original series of Poldark.
