As she says “It all started here in Cornwall, on the beaches, sitting on the rocks and making up little stories in my head, a long time ago..." Rosamunde Pilcher was born in Lelant in 1924 and she became one of Cornwall’s literary greats. Her childhood in Cornwall inspired many of her novels which have since been adapted for German TV and there are now more than 100 episodes. Set amongst a stunning Cornish backdrop, the series features the Duchy's iconic beaches, breath-taking coastline and impressive architecture. Check out the film locations for yourself.
