Jamaica Inn is well known as the setting for Daphne du Maurierís novel of the same name, published in 1936.  Young Daphne was inspired to write her novel after she, and her friend Foye Quiller-Couch, became lost in the fog while our riding on the moor.  They were led back to the safety of the Inn by their horses.  Afterwards, the local rector is said to have entertained her with ghost stories and tales of smuggling.
