A great destination to arrive at after packing up our home in London in order to move to Devon. Carolyn was extremely helpful and friendly, the room was great and the full Engilsh breakfast was just the thing to set us up to unpack the house at this end. Would recommend highly.

Just had two very comfortable nights at this B & B. We were in a premier room no 1 which was very tastefully furnished and decorated and quiet. Beautifully clean and comfortable with a huge bed that you could just relax and sink into! Wonderful breakfast with local produce and freshly prepared fruit available too. We had an amazing Christmas... More

Really enjoyed our stay at this lovely B and B, bed was super comfy and room was spotlessly clean. We stayed in room 7 that had its own terrace. Location could not have been more perfect for exploring the moors. Would defiantly recommend and hope to visit again soon.

This is a very good husband and wife ran B&B located on the edge of Dartmoor nation park. We were luckie to get a ground floor double room with its own patio / garden the room had all the normal mode cons and a shower / bathroom.

Thank you both very much for taking the trouble to write such a pleasant review. Our guests usually find the garden room with its kingsize bed very comfortable.

This was a really, wonderful experience made more enjoyable by the kind and friendly owners. Suggestions on places to eat and recommendations for where to explore were gratefully welcomed. The room was excellently stocked, clean, tidy and comfortable and the breakfast capped off the stay brilliantly. Would definitely return in the future with so much of Dartmoor still to see.

This was one of the most hospitable B&B my wife and I have stayed at, Nothing was too much trouble, requests for variation at breakfast were accepted with a smile and good grace. Our room was 'attended to' every time we left so amenities like coffee, tea milk etc were always topped up, bins were emptied daily and we felt... More

It is a lovely Guest House in a great location. Breakfast was great and the bedroom was large and very comfortable. The location is great for people wanting to explore Dartmoor but is also close to Plymouth for those who want the facilities of a city. There is a great deal of literature about Dartmoor and the region in general... More

Thanks so much for your lovely review. We're glad you enjoyed your special break with us, and had super weather to see all the Dartmoor ponies and beautiful scenery.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights from the 8th September. We received a great welcome and were very impressed with our Garden Room. Everything is very comfortable and there's plenty of space.

Thanks for taking the trouble to write such a nice review. Our quiet location, is always a big draw, as we are away from the main roads but still handy for everything in the village.

Our stay at Barnabas House was lovely. A delightfully bright and comfortable room with everything we needed. Breakfast, skilfully cooked, prepared us for a day exploring this beautiful region.
