people who have stayed here have reported strange incidents in the
night. Popular TV
programme Most Haunted featured Jamaica Inn in what they said was one of
the spookiest programmes they had ever recorded.
Previous managers of Jamaica Inn have heard conversations uttered in a foreign tongue. Could this be the Cornish language?
years there have been many stories of hauntings at Jamaica Inn and the Ghost Society have made in-depth investigations and compiled
a report based on their findings. The areas of substantial interest to
the investigation were, The Smuggler's Bar, The Stable Bar (now the museum), upstairs in the old bedrooms, and the old generator room which is now the hotel reception.
Murder at the Inn:
Many years ago, a stranger stood at the bar enjoying a tankard of ale. Upon being summoned outside, he left the half finished ale and stepped out into the night. That was the last time he was seen alive. The next morning his corpse was found on the bleak moor, but the manner of his death and the identity of his assailant still remain a mystery.
Previous landlords, upon hearing footsteps tramping along the passage to the bar, believe it is the dead man's spirit returning to finish his drink.
Who is the stranger sitting motionless on the wall outside? In 1911 there was much interest and correspondence in the press concerning a strange man who had been seen by many people, sitting on the wall outside the Inn. He neither spoke nor moved nor acknowledged a greeting but his appearance was uncannily like the murdered stranger. Could this be the dead man's ghost? And what strange compulsion drove it to return to the same spot so often?
With such an extensive history, including several centuries of smuggling, Daphne du Maurier's Jamaica Inn is probably closer to the truth than we care to believe. It would explain the clatter of horses hooves on cobbled ground heard in the depths of night...
During the early 1900s the Inn was used as a temperance house but there have always been spirits of a different kind at Jamaica Inn.
On a moonlit night, when all is still, how can any earthly person explain the sound of horses' hooves and the metal rims of wheels turning on the rough cobbles of the courtyard? Yet there is nothing to be seen! Who can explain the uneasy footsteps heard pacing the corridors in the dead of night? Who is the strange man in a tricorne hat and cloak who appears and then walks through solid doors?
