Our recent one-night stay had the unexpected bonus of warm, sunny weather. Dartmoor at its best, perfect for exploring! Breakfast was delightful with the additional bonus of banana bread with walnuts! There are several eating places nearby & the location is ideal for a much longer stay.

We stayed for three nights at Barnabas House. The room was perfect and in all respects we found this to be an excellent B&B. There are other B&Bs we have stayed in where the experience is also excellent, but it's the additional touches here which go the extra mile. A small quiet fridge in the room, restocked with fresh milk... More

We stayed here for 5 nights from the 25th October in the Garden Room. The room was lovely, maybe smaller than we had expected however we did have our own garden terrace which would have been nice if it wasn't for the week of the first bad winds and storm of the Autumn/winter. Carolyn made us feel welcome from the... More

Thanks so much for your review, we're glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and discovered how much Dartmoor and Devon has to offer. The other premier rooms are all bigger than the garden room, but of course it's nice to be on the ground floor and have the outside space to enjoy as well - weather permitting ! We... More

My husband stayed here while working in Plymouth and I joined him for a few nights. I couldn't recommend it more. Barnabas House is warm and welcoming. The breakfasts are wonderful and I was made to feel very welcome. The attention to detail that Ian and Carolyn give to 'a good nights stay' is unbelievable. The parking is good and... More

I stayed at the Barnabas House on a Saturday night. I was made welcome by the owner, Carolyn, and she recommended a good pub within walking distance. My room was a single room in the new wing of the house. Very comfortable, but the wifi didn't reach. Barnabus house has a dining room, but no real place for guests to... More

Our stay was quite short, but Barnabas house was a good base for our explorations in Devon and Cornwall. Being so close to Dartmoor National Park was big draw card for us. Tavistock is an adorable village just down the road (in Australian terms that is). The room was comfortable and fairly spacious.

Thanks so much for your review. We are indeed lucky to live in the National Park, and still only 5 miles from the little market town of Tavistock and 8 from the city of Plymouth. We're glad you had a good time, and were even able to get in a little surfing at Newquay during your stay. More
