Porthgwarra Picture 1

Once a thriving fishing cove, the beautiful Porthgwarra sits at the heart of St Aubyn Estates and boasts a peaceful existence with its days surrounded by wildflowers and birdlife. This is the location Ross takes his morning swim as his maid Demelza spies on him. Later in the series Ross helps someone avoid arrest from Porthgwarra, and organises their escape from here. This is also where crew filmed the landing of a pilchard catch, once vital to the local economy and Cornish diet. There’s a small café very near the cove; open in the summer, it’s a cute little spot to soak in the atmosphere.
