Welcome to the Legendary Jamaica Inn in Cornwall
Jamaica Inn, Cornwall's legendary coaching house, immortalised in Daphne du Maurier's novel of the same name, has stood high on Bodmin Moor for over four centuries. We're still referred to by historians as Cornwall's most famous smuggling inn. These days we do welcome the more salubrious guest ... and the odd ghost!
Jamaica Inn is set on Bodmin Moor, one of the most breathtaking locations in Cornwall and we welcome locals and travellers alike. Bodmin Moor is one of Cornwall's Designated Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty and it has many noteworthy historical sites dating back to the Bronze age.
Bodmin Moor is a haven for birds and wildlife and is a favourite place for ramblers and walkers and there are many paths and trails on the moor.
We are an ideal stop off point on the way to Cornwall's many attractions such as the world famous Eden Project and Falmouth's National Maritime Museum. Who knows, you might even see a ghost in the bar - or your room!
Enter into the evil yet romantic era of smuggling in Cornwall and see what is probably the finest collection of smuggling artefacts in the country, followed by our cinema room where you can learn more about Cornish smuggling.
Smuggling evolved when customs dues were first introduced in the thirteenth century, but there was no form of law and order until the fifteenth century and even then it was negligible. Goods such as silks, tea, tobacco and brandy were more frequently smuggled into Cornwall than anywhere else in England.
