Jamaica Inn has stood proud on Bodmin Moor over four centuries and was immortalised by Daphne du Maurier in her famous novel, which the BBC recently turned into a drama series. Cornwall’s most famous smuggling inn is shrouded in history and its museum has the largest collection of Cornish smuggling artefacts – a visit includes a short ﬁlm about smuggling and the part the Jamaica Inn played in this. The Daphne du Maurier Room has lots of her memorabilia, family photos and even the Sheraton writing desk she wrote her novels on.
Wholesome tasty meals are served all day using the freshest and ﬁnest local ingredients, starting at 7.30am with hearty Cornish breakfasts, followed by delicious lunches, mouth-watering cream teas and ﬁne dinners until 9pm, as well as traditional roast dinners every Sunday. The Inn’s friendly staff can advise on local real ales and ﬁne wines to drink in front of the crackling ﬁre in winter, and in the Inn’s gardens overlooking Bodmin Moor in summer. The newly opened farm shop, which features primarily Cornish produce, and the large gift shop are well worth visiting. The odd ghost or two is said to occupy Jamaica Inn, so why not become a ghost hunter on one of their popular ghost hunting nights?
Jamaica Inn is also a hotel with 20 en-suite bedrooms and 16 new rooms opening in the summer of 2017 – some are romantic four-poster bedrooms and all rooms have free Wi-Fi, Sky Sports and Sky Movies. Situated on beautiful Bodmin Moor and adjacent to the A30, the Inn is an ideal base from which to spend the day exploring Cornwall or Devon.
