"I was walking down by the gift shop and through into the restaurant one night and a top half of a torso lunged at me and disappeared"
Jayne Mortimer, North Cornwall Paranormal
"My wife and I have stayed there on a few occasions in the old part of the building and at night the room would go very cold. That's all I'm going to say - it's totally unexplainable"
Mr John Watts, previous owner of Jamaica Inn for 41 years
"As a birthday treat my wife Lesley arranged a 2 night stay at this famous old coaching inn. I Thought wow but in hindsight perhaps I shouldn’t have been so hasty
Room 5 is supposed to be the haunted room but let me tell you room 6 is no pushover 🙄
As we opened the door to room 6 I felt a sharp intake of breath was needed as you could cut the atmosphere with a knife. The large 4 poster bed looked inviting but was warm on one side & freezing on the other (no where near a window by the way). We went down to dinner for a nice cooked meal. We were given tissues to hold the plates with as they where so hot. We sat at a table inside and Lesley went to eat her meal & it was cold along with the plate. Mine you still could not hand hold but why, that incident remains a mystery.
Nothing really happened until about 9.30 pm when filming in the room I recorded a large bright orb come straight out from the wooden headboard & hover over a trigger object placed on the bed before disappearing very quickly.
It was about 12.30am we decided to go to bed & just laying came 3 massive bangs from the ensuite bathroom but I didn’t get up to investigate until the morning. At one point I saw a golden orb zip across the room with my naked eye & as it headed towards a lit bedside lamp which dimmed right down to nothing before brightening back up as the orb moved off & disappear
About 3.am I heard buckled boots walking down the corridor & then the worst,the gun metal door latch being rattled. I was petrified (wife fast asleep ) when the footsteps
moved off into the distance. I jumped up opened the door & there was nothing there anywhere & we were the only guests on that top floor that night
Eventually daylight started to appear over Bodmin moor & I felt safe so I settled down to sleep finally .
That was a mistake as soon I felt someone watching me so I took a peep just to see but it was ok so I lay back down & started to feel icy cold and cobwebbbing going down my back which unnerved me but not as much as the bed covers lifting off my shoulder and sliding down to my ankles (Lesley still fast asleep on other side of the bed & I couldn’t even reach her so I know it wasn’t her). That was it I was up & into the bathroom where I found lumps of plaster on the floor. What a night I experienced in the not so famous room 6. I have stayed in room 5 and never experienced anything like that."
