Altarnun Things to Do: 10 reviews and 12 photos
The famous Jamaica Inn is only four miles to the west of Altarnun. This Inn used to be a coaching Inn, as it was impossible to cross the perilous Bodmin Moor during the hours of darkness.
The Inn was immortalized by the author Daphne Du Maurier, in her book of the same name. Wheter or not the Inn was a base for smugglers is still a matter for discussion, but there does seem to be a ghost here - ask member Laura Hayward!
Directions: Midway between Launceston and Bodmin, on the A30. Turn off at Bolventor.
