About Jamaica Inn

Made famous by Daphne du Maurier's novel of the same name, Jamaica Inn is a 1750's coaching inn, high on the wild and beautiful Bodmin Moor. It offers the same warm welcome today as it has done to travellers for centuries. Food in the Pedlars restaurant is mostly sourced from local Cornish suppliers and in the bars, there is an impressive range of Cornish ales, ciders, wines and spirits - including its own Jamaica Inn rum. The Inn is now a 36- bedroom hotel with suites, original bedrooms with four-poster beds and modern bedrooms built in 2017, some of which are dog friendly. Who knows, you might even be visited by one of the resident ghosts!

The Smuggling museum is the largest in Cornwall and houses one the finest collections of smuggling artefacts in the country.  The Daphne du Maurier Room has many of her fascinating personal possessions including her famous Sheraton writing desk she wrote some of her novels on, family photos and much more. There is also a short film reliving Cornish smuggling and the part played by Jamaica Inn plus a quiz for children to do on the way around.  

Our Farm Shop is stacked full of Cornish produce including bread baked every day, eggs, milk, meat, fruit, unusual jams and chutneys plus daily newspapers and lots more. The Gift Shop has over 5000 souvenirs including such things as glassware, books, gifts, toys, trinkets and a Poldark corner.

How to finds us:

Jamaica Inn is halfway between Bodmin and Launceston just off the A30 at Bolventor - look for the brown tourist signs. The Inn is midway between the north and south coasts and is the perfect base for visiting anywhere in Devon and Cornwall and still be back in time for dinner.
