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

Barnabas House B and B is fantastic and really clean (spotless in fact)! Our room was beautiful and the bed was super comfy, slept really well and bedding clean and comfy. Just what we needed after walking all over Dartmoor. I loved the fact they provided eco-friendly shampoo and conditioner etc... this was a lovely touch as we don't like... More

Spent three nights in Barnabas House and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Great facilities and wonderful breakfast. Great location for hiking on the west side of the moor. Owners were incredibly welcoming. Would highly recommend.

We spent 3 nights at this super B&B, we stayed in a ground floor room with its own garden, table and chairs. Loved the room that had everything we needed and the breakfast was super. The fridge in the room really was "silent", so nice to have fresh milk for our tea etc. Steve and Angela are so friendly, we... More

A fantastic B&B. Great location in Yelverton which is perfect to reach Dartmoor and some good national trust houses. The rooms are really lovely - modern, stylish and luxury. Breakfast was great and Steve and Angela were welcoming and helpful. Tavistock is just a short drive away with some great restaurants.

We spent two nights in this lovely B&B run by an amazing couple who welcomed us and met all of our needs and wants! The room was very spacious and beautifully decorated. Altought the bathroom was not on suite, it's just across the hall and bath robes are provided so it didn't present any issues at all. The bathroom was... More

It has really gladdened our hearts that we were able to make your first B and B stay a memorable and pleasant experience. It was truly a pleasure to meet you both. Room 5 as you say is not currently en-suite, but the private bathroom more than makes up for this with its huge bath and separate shower! We hope... More
