Haunted Cornwall


8) Jamaica Inn, Bolventor, Launceston, Cornwall PL15 7TS.  Tel: 01566 86250


You can stay here. Supposed to be the most haunted inn in England, never mind Cornwall. It sits by the main A30 road, but in the heart of the desolate Bodmin Moor.  The Hound of The Baskervilles may have been set on Dartmoor, but Bodmin Moor would have served just as well for atmosphere.  The Inn featured in the TV series Most Haunted as did many of the places, I’ve just listed.  People hear disembodied spirits muttering in a foreign language, which is probably Cornish (Bodmin means Stone House in Cornish).  You can hear stagecoaches clattering on the long gone cobbles outside, feel unnatural waves of cold and see figures in Tricorn hats – just like pirates.
