Coming soon to a TV near you: the new version of 'Jamaica Inn'.

Part one of the adaptation of Fowey author Daphne du Maurier's book aired on Easter Monday.

Scenes featuring Downton star Jessica Brown-Findlay were shot on Bodmin Moor and at Holywell Bay.

Owner Allen Jackson is hoping the mini-series will pull in the tourists: "We're right up here in the middle of Bodmin Moor which is an exotic spot, true rugged moorland and it's of course a very historic inn, it was here nearly four hundred years ago.

"So the story goes, Jamaica Inn was used as a storage depot almost for smuggling in tobacco and rum, and then Daphne Du Maurier got lost on the moor and came to the inn for three days and she decided to write the book Jamaica Inn.

The new series has already sparked enquiries at a Cornish holiday park, even before it has been shown on TV.

Trevornick overlooks the stretch of coastline where filming took place.

Spokesman Clare Reynolds is hoping they will get more bookings after it starts: "It's just a lovely sandy beach, great for surfing, it's peaceful, it's lovely over there. Just coastline, sea, the rocks, it's brilliant.

"People can see just how beautiful Cornwall is and it puts them there that they want to come and experience what we're showing them. I think it's great that we can promote Cornwall in this way, especially Holywell, it's such a lovely beach."
