With the heady 3rd series of Poldark scheduled to hit BBC One on Sunday night (11 June), the dramatic and turbulent lives of Ross and Demelza (Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson) will once again be perfectly complemented by an equally enthralling backdrop to ruggedly wild coastline and lush Cornish countryside. Whilst galloping along the clifftops like Ross might not be an option, why not immerse yourself in your own windswept drama by taking to some of the many breath-taking trails on a Ramblers Walking Holidays St Ives and Cornish Coast break. Taking in long sandy beaches, secret coves, old stone villages and abandoned mining settlements, as featured throughout the series, stunning walks from the most westerly points at Lands End to the farthest south at Lizard Peninsula offer a rewarding personal ’take’ on the series.
