Made famous by Daphne du Maurier’s novel of the same name, Jamaica Inn, set high amongst the wild yet beautiful landscape of Bodmin Moor in mid Cornwall, offers the same warm welcome today as it has done for many years to families, coach parties and other visitors. Sample the fine ales, enjoy a good selection of food or stay in one of their comfortable four-poster rooms. Who knows, you may even be visited by one of the residential ghosts!


Whilst you’re there, why not visit the Daphne du Maurier room. It's full of memorabilia including her famous Sheraton writing desk. Then you can experience the fascinating Daphne du Maurier’s Smugglers at Jamaica Inn – a spectacular theatrical presentation of her most famous novel, Jamaica Inn, told in tableaux, sound and light.


Then it’s off to see one of the UK’s finest collections of smuggling artefacts dating from the present day back to the days of the old coaching inn when the guests weren’t quite as salubrious as they are today!


The Jamaica Inn is located halfway between Bodmin and Launceston just off of the A30 at Bolventor. Look for the brown signs to Jamaica Inn and Museums. It is within easy travelling distance of Plymouth, North Devon and the Cornish coastal resorts.
