Since its launch in March 2015, viewers of the popular BBC drama based on Winston Graham’s period novels, ‘Poldark’, have flocked to the West Country to follow in the footsteps of Ross and Demelza. Stay in luxury Poldark holiday cottages near all the filming action, walk the dramatic, rugged clifftops, soak up the breathtaking seascapes and explore our Cornish Heritage.
Confident salty sea dogs bound along the shoreline, smaller spirited dogs tease the incoming waves, whilst tired old timers just watch the world go by. It’s just another day in the life of our four-legged coastal companions. When the weekend comes around, our very own Gems dogs are always part of the plans as Cornwall presents all the right ingredients for a jolly good dog’s day out. Read on to explore our favourite paw-friendly Cornish walks and find your dog friendly cottage.
St Ives has always had a special place in our hearts, it’s where it all started for us after all. So we asked our MD Julianne, to set her ‘out of office’ and enjoy a luxury staycation (or near-cation should we say) and share her love of this most beautiful Cornish harbour town.
With a finger on the pulse of serious style, we speak to property owner Gary Thomas and follow his renovation journey from once forgotten flat to oh so cool coastal luxury accommodation. Open the door to Fistral Loft, Pentire, Newquay.
It’s no secret that Cornwall is firmly on the foodie map, and we’re rather glad about that here at Gems HQ. When it comes to Cornish cuisine, oh boy are we spoiled! But it’s not just the delicious food that takes centre stage as gin distilleries, wineries and breweries add a little holiday spirit too helping to rubber stamp our fine Cornish reputation for all things artisan.
