Holywell's Sea Cave: This bizarre natural formation of stalagmites and stalactites creating a natural well is a must see for visitors to the location. Featured in a famous scene between Demelza's younger brother Drake Carne and his love interest Morwenna; the ancient rock formation can only be found at low tide, at the far eastern end of Holywell beach (Great care should be taken when looking for the well).
Beach Bond: As well as Poldark, a number of other films and production companies have utilised the beautiful scenery of this part of the Cornish coast. Bond films 'Tomorrow Never Dies', and 'Die Another Day' have both seen 007 striding on the sand of Holywell Bay.
Shipwreck : At low tide beachgoers should look to the horizon and amongst the waves they'll spot the mast of a sunken ship jutting out of the swell. The SS. Francia, an old Argentinian ship, was carrying a cargo of coal when it was wrecked in 1917 during stormy conditions. This remnant of maritime industry lends itself well to the dramatic atmosphere of the location.
Visitors keen to immerse themselves full in Poldark country have a range of accommodation options overlooking the popular filming location at Trevornick Holiday Park. Just a short walk through the sand dunes to the filming location.
Guests can choose from camping under canvas and heading straight to the beach with the effortless and fully-equipped Eurotents, experience the saltwater lifestyle in a static caravan, enjoy the coastal comfort of a Cornish cottage and, new for 2019 delight in a little bit of luxury, in the five-star lodges.
Other on site amenities include an outdoor heated pool, a golf course overlooking the Bay and the Wild Tribe kids club to entertain younger visitors.
