Aidan Turner stole THIS from the Poldark set for his home

The actor couldn’t resist taking a memento or two for his new London home

With Poldark soon back on our screens for a fifth series, it seems we aren’t the only ones lamenting the fact this will also be the final chapter for the Cornish drama.

For four series we’ve watched Captain Ross Poldark risk his life and loves to protect his beloved Cornwall, but now the period drama must come to a close and we aren’t looking forward to saying goodbye to him and Demelza.

Aidan Turner, who plays the brooding heartthrob, is also feeling sentimental about leaving the drama behind and felt the need to take a memento from the set home to remember his years as Poldark.

The 36-year-old actor made away with the table and benches from his character’s home, Nampara House, which now sits proudly in the kitchen on his new London pad.

When asked by The Sun newspaper whether the furniture from the period drama – which is set in the 18th century – is perhaps a little out of place in his home, he replied, ‘No, they’re perfect.’

Viewers will remember the table and benches taking centre stage in many episodes, as the backdrop to many intense conversations with his wife Demelza, played by Eleanor Tomlinson. 

It was surely inevitable that cast and crew would take a few keepsakes home, although others chose slightly smaller tokens.

Ellise Chappel, who plays Morwenna Chynoweth, made off with an antique book and a seashell bracelet, while Jack Farthing who plays evil George Warleggan settled on a suit. Dr Dwight Enys actors, Luke Norris, selected a box, which he later auctioned off for charity.

Looking at the fine wooden table we can't say we blame him. Whether it's made from oak, pine, ash or beech, the classic shape and rustic patina will work in any style of kitchen.

If you're looking to recreate Nampara House in your own home, you couldn't do much better than this antique dairy table. Made from warm pine wood, it's got two useful drawers and will look fabulous for years to come.

Poldark’s fifth series, based on the books by Winston Graham, will air Sunday nights and continues on BBC One from 14 July.
