We have taken a bit of buffeting with the wind and the rain over the mild winter and with some of the cottages having had winter lettings we are now busy with the decorators in and ready to receive our quota of new sofas, mattresses and curtains to keep the accommodations in good order for the season. Advance bookings for the high season are good but we are always happy to see guests new and old particularly in May,June and September. With the new Poldark series about to air You may have noticed the deliberate mistake with the (19th century) Trevose light house on some of the cliff shots. Even Charlestown where the ship and harbour scenes are filmed on the South coast is only 20 miles away.
For Doc Martin fans the majority of the filming takes place in Port Isaac which is 25 miles from Polmark. The series currently being filmed in April 2015 has involved film crews in Padstow and extras are still being taken on now on a daily basis……..though you will have to get up early to queue!
