If going to Dartmoor National Park book in here! Perfectly located b&b with great breakfast and lovely rooms. Made us feel very welcome and would stay again if in the area. We stayed 2 nights and were able to get about the national park with no trouble with this as our base.

I work for a television production company and was looking for a place for my colleagues to stay whilst they were filming across Dartmoor. I had 7 colleagues to find a bed for and Barnabas House were extremely accommodating and found space for all of my team. Due to their schedule, the team were not going to be around for... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights last week. It was a last minute booking as we had been supposed to be under canvas but the weather, being typically British, persuaded us to book in here. We could not have been happier with our choice. The location is an excellent gateway to Dartmoor and all that has to... More

We stayed at Barnabas House to break up our journey further down to Cornwall. We stayed in the family room which was excellent as our son had his very own self contained room in our spacious bedroom. The beds were excellent and we all had a really good night sleep. Our hosts were very accomodating, and the breakfasts were excellent... More

Steve and Angela had only been running this place for 8 weeks when we stayed there but you would never tell! Our room was nicely decorated (not at all chintzy), with good lighting and a view over the gardens. The breakfast was one of the most delicious I've ever had at a B&B. .. We had granola, fruit and fresh... More

Thank you so much for writing a review for us. It was lovely to meet you, and we are glad you enjoyed our breakfast.

Stayed for a long weekend at Barnabas House and were really pleased. Great location, with good access to Dartmoor and Plymouth and local pubs/restaurants in the village as well. Steve and Angela could not have been more helpful, without being in anyway intrusive. Great place for cyclists as well, they let us store our bikes and had tips about local... More

We usually choose hotels over B&Bs as we have previously been disappointed with B&Bs. However, Barnabas House is absolutely wonderful - we had 2 nights there which were highly restorative. The rooms are large, well appointed and beautifully decorated (and the bed in our room was enormous!). Another differentiation from other B&Bs we have stayed in is that Barnabas offers... More

So glad we found Angela and Steve at Barnabas House, they did a great job of making us feel very welcome. Our room was a good size, very comfortable, as was the bed and everything was spotlessly clean every where with lots of extras in the room and bathroom. Angela showed me around all of their rooms, all of which... More
