Jamaica Inn

The World Famous

Jamaica Inn

Cornwall's most famous smugglers inn

Welcome to Jamaica Inn, high up on wild and beautiful Bodmin Moor and made world-famous by Daphne du Maurier's tale of smugglers, rogues and pirates.  A new BBC drama of Jamaica Inn was broadcast at Easter 2014.

This historic coaching house has welcomed weary travellers crossing Bodmin Moor for nearly 300 years. Full of legend, mystery, romance and even, according to folklore, the odd friendly spirit, the Inn continues to welcome guests to its 20 en suite bedrooms, award-winning restaurant, ‘olde worlde’ bars with great local ales and wines, its souvenir shop and the fascinating Smugglers’ Museum where tales of wreckers, murderers and villains are brought wonderfully to life!

The Inn is easily reached being just beside the A30 midway between Launceston and Bodmin. It is the perfect base for exploring the moor and being close to the Cornwall and Devon border it is also a great base for visiting almost anywhere in either county and still be back in time for dinner.
