MEADOW VIEW GUIDED HIKES
FOWEY | CORNWALL
New for 2021: a collection of Poldark Cornish location walking tours!
See outline and picture gallery below
Early bird discounts available now
Bookable as individual dates or as a three day trip, with optional accommodation.
Each day will cover part of Cornwall and visit filming locations used in the BBCTV 2015-19 production, which your guide worked on as a Supporting Artist. Itineraries will involve visits to locations which either require or are enhanced by short walks over rugged ground. Guests will need a reasonable level of fitness for walking 30-60 minutes at any one time.
Transport is included in a chartered vehicle with professional driver, from and returning to the start point in Fowey, unlike other driver/guide tours. This means that you have constant access to your host, uninterrupted by the demands of driving and with no parking delays. Pick-ups from your accommodation on or near the route will be provided where possible.
Group size is limited to 14 guests maximum
We will see a video compilation of scenes from the production filmed at the locations we visit.
- Transport from start point, between locations and return to start point
- Guided visits and walks to all locations on the itinerary, with commentary and Q&As

Due to COVID overseas travel restrictions, accommodation is unlikely to be available at short notice, if at all, in 2021. My apologies for this situation which is out of my control.
