Where should you visit this May and June?
Hengar Manor is on the doorstep of some rather famous scenery. Many scenes from the BBC’s adaptation of Poldark were filmed close to our North Cornwall holiday park, with the rugged landscape of Bodmin Moor the backdrop to many of the popular drama’s shots. And it’s not just Poldark that has highlighted the appeal of Cornwall. ITV’s Doc Martin, which stars Martin Clunes, is filmed at Port Isaac – a picturesque fishing village just seven miles away.
