Why we Love Poldark!

We’ll admit it… We’re big fans of Poldark here at Merchant House. So much so, we’ve just launched a new Poldark break at our hotel for our guests to enjoy! Take a look, here.

This month we wanted to tell you all the reasons why we love the hit TV series!

1) Ross Poldark

We’ll admit it, seeing the tall (yes really, he’s 6ft, he wasn’t actually a Dwarf in The Hobbit) burly hunk on our screen helps to keep things interesting. He reminds us of a man on horseback from a classic tale with hints of Mr Darcy, and Aidan Turner agrees, as he’s once been quoted saying: ‘He’s literally a hero: strong and rebellious.’

2) The Cornish Landscape

We know we live here, but seeing our stunning county on the big screen is just magical (especially if Ross is in the frame too!). There are some fabulous shots of the coastline and cliff tops awash in blossom pink thrift which makes us proud to call this county home.

3) The Costumes

We’re always up for a good costume drama, and the outfits worn by the cast of Poldark are just fantastic. The ladies look incredible in stunning dresses, while the gentlemen are rather breath-taking in Georgian fashion themselves!

4) It’s a Fantastic Return

The 1970’s series may look dated now, but we’re so glad that such a classic storyline was revamped and given a new lease on life.
