Following the first episode of the new series of Poldark, it wasn’t Aidan Turner, Eleanor Tomlinson or the shocking ending that was the main talking point (though we still can’t quite get over what happened!), but the introduction of Horace the pug. Used to disguise Gabriella Wilde’s pregnancy – Horace has become an instant sensation.

With that in mind, we thought we’d share some of our favourite Poldark inspired dog walks – perfect for walking your pug (or any dog!).
