Inspiration for Daphne du Maurier's novel, Jamaica Inn stands high upon Bodmin Moor, with its beamed ceilings, roaring log fires and real ale. Delicious hot and cold Cornish Fayre is available from the Pedlars Bar, or for a more leisurely meal, dine in the du Maurier restaurant. Visit Mr Potter's Museum of Curiosity, a Victorian exhibit, featuring taxidermist Walter Potter, and Daphne du Maurier's Smugglers at Jamaica Inn, a presentation of the novel in tableaux and a captivating collection of smuggling artefacts.
