Where is the start of Treasure Island set?

Robert Louis Stevenson's famous novel *Treasure Island* opens somewhere in Britain, at and around the Admiral Benbow inn. **Where exactly is this meant to be?**It seems to be relatively near to Bristol, so I'd guess somewhere in the West Country of England. I've also heard it said that it's meant to be in Cornwall, but I'm not sure what the textual or extratextual evidence is for this. I've even been to a *real* Admiral Benbow inn in Penzance, but that's presumably named after the fictional one rather than the other way round.
