Poldark influence still strong

By Cornish Times in Business

As another series of TV hit Poldark nears its close, self-catering holiday company cottages.com says the show’s influence on holiday-makers remains as strong as ever. 

The firm says areas that feature in the Cornwall-set BBC drama have seen bookings rise 13% year-on-year since the third series aired. 

Camelford has had an increase of 56% in booked weeks since Poldark returned. 

Padstow bookings have risen 32% since the series started in June. 

And bookings to coastal properties within the area where the show is set have also increased by 18% year-on-year. 

Spokesman Simon Norton said: ‘Poldark is an incredibly popular programme that showcases Cornwall’s beauty in every episode, and for this reason, it’s no surprise we have seen a rise in bookings to its filming locations since the beginning of season three. 

‘We’re also happy to report that the show’s legacy looks set to continue into 2018, with bookings to Poldark hotspots such as St Austell already up 28% against last year’s statistics.’
