The Poldark Pleasure Gardens House Party with Costume Garden Party and Dinner at Burncoose House.
Friday 14 June – Monday 17 June 2019
The Poldark Pleasure Gardens House Party is here!
To truly immerse yourself in the history and heritage of Poldark’s Cornwall, come and join us for three nights of Georgian splendour at Burncoose House culminating with a night of wonder and frivolity at our own Poldark Pleasure Gardens House Party.
Imagine waking up in your own stately home to sumptuous breakfasts and 38 acres of your own private garden. Touring some of the most iconic Poldark locations during the day on Saturday and Sunday and dining in style at the table of one of the most famous and powerful of mining families in Cornwall’s history.
In Poldark Season 4 we often saw the Poldark’s and Enys’s taking the air in London’s fashionable Pleasure Gardens. During the late Georgian and early Regency period, revellers would head to Vauxhall on the South bank of the Thames, by boat, to eat, drink and be merry.
Performers, secret woodland candlelit walks, music and games are the order of the evening on Sunday 16th June. Come and join us for this one-off experience.
Bedrooms are spacious and the ensuite bathrooms are something to behold. Spaces to stay in the house are limited to 12 guests only. After these rooms are gone, then we will secure alternative 4* accommodation nearby.
There will be things to thrill and places to hide! Guests are invited to embrace the costume of the late 18th century, with ladies of fashion embracing the new empire line style. Come and help create our POLDARK PLEASURE GARDEN EXPERIENCE.
You may wear costume all the time if your wish, but for practicality we suggest restricting it to evenings! For the full photo experience however, we know that many will want to have costumes available with us during the day and that’s fine too! Transport will be strictly horse power and not horse drawn though, otherwise we’d never get anywhere!
The Poldark Pleasure Gardens Weekend House Party
Friday 14th June:
Staying in stately luxury, the weekend commences with your arrival at Burncoose House from 3.00pm. Settling into your exquisite room and perhaps taking a stroll through the splendour of the gardens in early summer bloom or a soak in the hot-tub before welcome drinks at 6.30pm and dinner in the banqueting dining room. After supper we will have a talk on the family that helped shape the fortunes of Cornish mining and then the table will be set with board games and Poldark series will be shown in the comfortable drawing room.
Saturday 15th June:
After a delicious breakfast you will be toured to “Nampara”, the home of Ross and Demelza Poldark and Charlestown historic port before driving to Truro to take the Enterprise Boat down the River Fal, past Tregothnan and Trelissick, two of the great estates mentioned in Poldark, before alighting at Falmouth for some shopping and sightseeing followed by a short drive to the wonderful Pandora Inn at Restronguet Creek for dinner and return to Burncoose House for a night cap.
Sunday 16th June:
After another wonderful breakfast we will travel west to see the Poldark locations at Penberth Cove, Porthgwarra Beach, Gwennap Head and the mines at Botallack. Grabbing a pasty lunch on the way we pass St Michael’s Mount and if the visibility is clear we may even see the archipelago of the Isles of Scilly in the distance.
We want you to have plenty of time to rest and dress before the garden party of the evening, so we aim to return you to Burncoose by 3.30 at the latest.
