My Instagram followers over on @all_things_austen and @mypoldark will know very well that I am headed to England and Italy next month and that one of the things I'm most excited about it visiting Cornwall, the setting of my favourite book and television series, Poldark!

My family and I were invited to a friends wedding in Italy and so we decided to make a trip out of it as we have some friends in Dorset who we'd like to catch up with while we're over on that side of the world! So of course I've convinced my family that places like Bath and Cornwall are must sees.

They're must sees people.

We are staying in St Ives while in Cornwall and I'm hoping to be able to visit Botallack, Holywell Bay, Charlestown, Truro, St Agnes Head and all those wonderful Poldark sights! I'm also super keen to visit Tintagel, where the legend of King Arthur was born!

Another thing that I find only slightly exciting is the fact that Poldark season 4 actually starts filming in September, no biggy, but yeah, I'll say hi to Aidan Turner from you all!
