Built in the late 18th century, Jamaica Inn was a coaching Inn a bit like our modern day service station. Weary travellers using the turnpike between Launceston and Bodmin would stay at the Inn having crossed the wild and treacherous moor. Some of the travellers were a little less respectable than most and used the Inn to hide away the contraband that had been smuggled ashore.
You can relive the smugglers experience at Jamaica Inn. The Inn has one of the finest and extensive collections of smuggling artifacts in the UK.
Jamaica Inn is only a short drive from The Old Malt House. For those wishing to indulge in Cornish legend, a visit to the historic Inn that inspired Daphne Du Maurie’s novel of the same name, may well be one of those must places to visit.
