We stumbled on this place after visiting Dozmary Pool, located nearby. Still a functioning inn with restaurants and a pretty busy gift shop filled with Jamaica Inn merchandise. There is nothing particularly special about the location, but a must stop and see attraction for die-hard fans of the novel.

I had no need to worry it was lovely. A warm welcoming "smugglers" inn. Our room had all we would wish for, comfy bed, tea, coffee... More

Love the work of Daphne Du Maurier so had to visit. Interesting little museum within the Inn, and enchanting building from the outside, very atmospheric. Would call in again for a drink.
