Poldark – with a little “finesse”

So who can’t wait to see series 3 of the amazing Mammoth BBC production of “Poldark”. Since it first hit the screens, we have been captivated by the stories as they unfold. Or for some of us the draw to Poldark has been the wonderful Aidan Turner. I know many women that now have a new appreciation for the art of sything. 

Having had the opportunity to not only meet but chauffeur the main cast, we can attest to the fact that they are all wonderful down to earth people. 

As we know the wonderful Barley aka Garrick played an important role, as Demelza’s dog. We also had the pleasure of meeting other dogs on set. Something we loved as we provide dog friendly travel.

We can give you a truly unique Poldark Tour. At £250 (for up to 6 people) a great price and an experience not to be missed.

Trust your gut instinct

Now we all know there are times when our judgement in both our personal and business lives are put to the test. After all, we have all had those phone calls from people who are not what they seem to be. Or those asking us to log onto our computers to rectify a problem. We all want to trust others and no blame is held on those who fall foul of those wishing to cause financial and emotional distress. Also we do not want to close off to great alliances and friendships that come from trusting people.

However sometimes you get that nagging feeling that things aren’t right. My message is do some research, ask about. Basically get feedback on whether someone’s intentions are good. We have all, I’m sure, had people who win us over with a smile, stories and promises. 

Your business, just like your personal life, is precious. Built up with hard work. Don’t let someone fool you. 

Remember:  If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Of course, many companies wouldn’t have made it off the starting block without some gambles and risk taking. Just remember though,


The Doc is back in town

Doc Martin

Our clients today were blessed during their visit to Port Isaac (Port Wenn) to get an appointment, well a walk by from the wonderful Martin Clunes (aka “Doc Martin”). Great to see him, when not on camera, with his wonderful smile, unlike his character and counterpart. Especially as Martin Clunes is open for a photo opportunity and a chat between filming.

We have been blessed in the wonderful weather that Cornwall has had over the last couple of days. So who knows, when the episodes air, maybe the Doc will have something to smile about too.

Despite everything you can’t help but think the Doc is a nice guy who, when he does show his soft side then everyone is a winner.

Doc Martin is just one of many wonderful TV programmes, Dramas and Films that are made in Cornwall every year. So why not take the opportunity to come on holiday here. Come on a tour with us and you never know who we might meet next?! ……………
