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

Thanks so much for your review, it was a pleasure to meet you both, and we're glad that despite the dodgy start to the weather, your day out walking was nice and dry.

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.

Barnabas House is a delight. Lovely room, great breakfast and really friendly hosts. The room was well equipped and bathroom of a high standard. Barnabas House is great value. It's situated in a nice village with two local pubs which both serve food. I won't hesitate to return to this quality bed and breakfast.

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.
