Newest Review: ... I could almost see it playing out at the Inn and I could imagine the bleak Moor which made the book a lot more enjoyable and realistic. I definitely recommend reading the book to get an idea of how life possibly could have been at the Inn. I have never stayed overnight at Jamaica Inn, mainly because I daren't. I imagine that I would get no sleep whatsoever staying in one of its allegedly ... more

Jamaica Inn, Cornwall The Jamaica Inn is situated in the middle of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall. It can be spotted and accessed from the A30 which is the main road passing through the county. The usually bleak Moor sets the perfect scene for the famous Inn, which is bursting with history and atmosphere. The Inn is well known for being one of the most haunted buildings in the UK with its many tales of ghosts and smugglers from years gone by. Jamaica Inn was built in 1750 as an Inn for travellers. Due to the isolated location of the Inn, in the middle of the Moor, it was an attractive stopping point for travellers and was a great place for smugglers to hide ... Read the complete review

I've been to Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall a few times and just love it. The book by Daphne du Maurier is my most favourite novel. The first thing you hear is the creaking, eerie pub sign! The shop is excellent, it's quite large and you can buy all sorts of souveniers, Daphne du Maurier's books, refreshments, toys, etc. I also visited the Daphne du Maurier Museum there, you can see the Sheriton writing desk where she penned her many fantastic novels and biographies. Also, something that has now disappeared, Potter's Museum of Curiosities - a fasinating museum of taxidermy. The sort of place that has three-eyed dogs, lambs with six legs and such like. ...

'Twas a dark windswept eve, there is a howling moan and the rain is drumming incessantly on my windscreen. Then cresting the brow of the ridge I see the warm inviting glow of lights atop of a lonely hill. As my car slowly made its way up the steep incline I could eventually make out the sign, drenched and almost unreadable in the car's lights as they reflect off the sign in the torrential downpour. Jamaica Inn stands in its forbidding majesty. I wander beneath the porch; a welcoming fire greeted me the inviting atmosphere of the Smugglers Bar called out. Okay so I let my imagination run a little, but 'who doesn't' in Cornwall? ... Read the complete review

We arrived into Cornwall on our annual holiday, there was a place called Jamaica Inn, which really caught my eye. In the second week my Mum and Dad came to stay with us in our farmhouse, which we had hired for 2 weeks. My Dad mentioned the fact that he was interested in going to the Jamaica Inn he had seen it too. We decided to go for a meal there the day my Mum and Dad were leaving to go home. We walked in, expecting to find a smugglers inn; instead we were greeted with a canteen style self-service food bar. Don’t get me wrong, the food was lovely, and they did kids versions of the adult menu, they also did the normal ... Read the complete review
