Ghosts of the Jamaica Inn
The Inn was used as a temperance house during the early 1900s but there has always been some kind of unexplained presence throughout the years. Most Haunted has been here and described the Inn as one of the spookiest places they had ever investigated! On a moonlit night, you might hear the sound of horses’ hooves and the metal rims of carriages in the courtyard outside the Inn. Any attempt at locating the sound will be left with disappointment. It has been reported on many occasions that pacing footsteps have been heard in the corridors outside the room, upon investigation no-one has been seen.
Another report is that of a man in a hat and cloak who appears from nowhere and then shoots off through solid doors. Many managers of the Jamaica Inn have reported hearing the sounds of a foreign language in several locations. Could this be the sound of the old Cornish language, who knows? There have been many years of ghostly reports originating from the Inn, which recently prompted an investigation by the Ghost Society. They found that there were several areas that threw up some kind of paranormal activity, the more prominent areas were, the stable bar, restaurant, bedroom four, and the smuggler’s bar…
Jamaica Inn, Cornwall’s legendary coaching house which was immortalised in Daphne du Maurier’s novel of the same name, has stood high on Bodmin Moor for over four centuries. Set in one of the most breathtaking locations in Cornwall, Jamaica Inn welcomes locals and travellers alike, so why not stop off on your way to the County’s attractions such as the world-famous Eden Project and Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum?
