JA­MAICA INN, BOLVENTOR

Cornwall Life - - CAPTURING CORNWALL -

This coach­ing inn’s iso­lated lo­ca­tion made it the per­fect spot for hid­ing and smug­gling con­tra­band into Eng­land too. Smug­glers aside, the pub also pro­vided the set­ting and in­spi­ra­tion for Daphne du Mau­rier’s novel, Ja­maica Inn which was pub­lished in 1936. The story was based on the inn circa 1820.
