Visit an infamous smugglers’ den
Mystery, legend, romance, ghosts, smugglers and fantastic food. High up on Bodmin Moor, Jamaica Inn is waiting for your visit.
Made famous by Daphne du Maurier’s novel and numerous screen adaptations, this historic coaching house has provided weary travellers with a warm welcome for over 300 years. Within easy reach of the A30, it’s still a great place for a short stop off… or a longer stay whilst in Cornwall.
Pop in for a meal and find a selection of hearty dishes, light bites and afternoon teas and treats in the award-winning restaurant. From a full English breakfast to homemade lasagne, or the catch of the day to a Sunday roast, everything is made from fresh, local ingredients. Or discover tales of rogues, pirates and wreckers — and the finest collection of smuggling artefects in the country — in the Jamaica Inn Smugglers’ museum.
For a longer stay, the Inn is an excellent base for exploring Cornwall and Devon. Nearby attractions include the bustling towns of Launceston and Bodmin as well as scenic walks across the moors and up Cornwall’s highest peak, Brown Willy.

Little touches that go long way. Like the choice of firm or soft pillows in all rooms.
Buy a pre-packed picnic and enjoy it on the shores of beautiful Dozmary Pool, which local legend says is the final resting place of King Arthur’s sword, Excalibur.
