Cornwall Tourism Awards 2018

It was a fantastic evening for Polmanter and other St Ives businesses at the Cornwall Tourism Awards on 1 November. We’re delighted to let you know that we won the Touring Camping And Caravanning Category for the second year in a row!

Our favourite Poldark locations

The BBC’s much-loved Sunday night drama, Poldark, returned to our screens last month. In Cornwall, we’re settling down on our sofas every Sunday to watch wide-eyed, as Ross… well, no spoilers here, so we’d better not tell you… But as well as being glued to the action, we’re all taking part in a favourite Cornish activity: Poldark location spotting.

Cornish creatures: summer wildlife spotting in St Ives

There was a blue shark spotted in St Ives harbour earlier this summer.

However, our Gulf-stream climate and warm seas do attract some fabulous and fascinating creatures.

Who do we usually share our waters, skies and land with?
