Lovely place to stay, very clean, lots of little extras, small fridge in room with fresh milk in. Nothing too much trouble. Very good breakfast, one of the best bed and breakfasts I've been to. Also has a car park.

We have recently stayed in a 5 star hotel abroad, when comparing this to Barnabas house the bedrooms are very much the same which is quite amazing and not what we expected. We stayed in room 5, it was immaculate, great tea and coffee, small fridge with fresh milk - makes such a difference to UHT! The bathroom for our... More

As we came in from the car park we were greeted at the door in a friendly manner and taken straight to our room. The proprietor helpfully took time to explain all the relevant features and to point us in the direction of suitable restaurants for later. It was nice to have free wifi. There was good tea and coffee... More

Thanks very much for your lovely review, we're glad you enjoyed your stay in the garden room, and maybe can come back one day when the weather is better. It's good to be assured that the shower is effective, despite our deliberate avoidance of power showers. We were delighted to see that our green policies are appreciated. Thanks once again,... More

We picked up this accomodation from the internet and was highly delighted, when we arrived, to find we'd made a good choice. The owners of Barnabas House, Ian and Carolyn, are very warm and welcoming. On arrival we were greeted by Ian who carried our cases up to our room and who gave us all the information regarding breakfast etc.... More

Attending an event in Yelverton, Barnabas House was the perfect base for our four day visit. So glad I chose to stay here. All aspects of the accommodation and service offered by Carolyn and Ian are spot on. I loved our room with its own patio garden and the house location meant we were able to walk easily to our...

On arrival in the pouring rain we received a warm welcome from the owners, and Ian kindly carried my case up to the room whilst explaining the facilities, breakfast times and where to find everything. He told us not to hesitate to ask if we needed anything and said they would leave their contact numbers whenever they were out. The... More

As with any holiday, the last thing you need is the let down of an accommodation and walking and exploring Dartmoor and then having a not so good accommodation would ruin it. However, the Barnabas House was absolutely perfect. The minute I booked the accommodation for two nights, I got a nice email from the owners. They notices I was... More

Stayed here as a group, lovely place in very good condition. Well looked after. Quiet, location but only a short walk to a pub etc. used as a base for a biking weekend. We had a spacious room at the top of the house, complete with fridge etc. Good wifi too, thanks

A very brief but pleasant stay at Barnabus House. Very clean and modern, despite it being an old building. The landlady was very attentive and helpful. We would definitely stay again if we were in the area.
