The Jamaica Inn

Well what can I say .... This place has fascinated me for many years. It's not my first visit and won't be my last. I am drawn to this part of the world for some strange reason.
The Jamaica Inn stands high on the moors, Bodmin Moor. The area is steeped with history of smuggling and murder.
Jamaica Inn has recently been made even more famous with the recent TV drama about Daphne du Maurier's book Jamaica Inn.
It's a great place to take a rest, with its cobbled court yard, it's beamed ceilings, lovely log fire, the inn's very own ales and yummy food.  A very welcoming pub with so much to see and explore inside. On site there is also a museum which tells of the history of the inn, the many myths and legends attached to the inn. The tales of the Cornish Smugglers. You can also see in the museum a room dedicated to Daphne du Maurier this includes her Sherston writing desk . She was said to enjoy cigarettes and glacier mints when she was writing these can be seen on the desk in her special room.
Jamaica Inn is well worth a look especially if your into the world of spooks as many can be found here. Maybe next time we visit we may even find one.
