Charlestown’s Poldark famous harbour sold!

Many of you staying at our Cornwall holiday parks would have visited the historic Grade II listed Charlestown harbour, particularly off the back of Poldark’s success.

Well did you know the 18th century harbour has officially been sold in the past few days?

Just weeks ago the cast of Poldark, which included Aiden Turner, were spotted filming scenes for series two in the harbour, which has now changed hands after being on the market for three years.
