I'm a keen cyclist and this is an excellent place for anyone like me. Not just because the breakfasts are plentiful, the bed was very comfortable, the shower is fantastic and the roads are great ... but also because Steve is a total enthusiast too so knew all the good places to go. The room was well equipped for relaxing... More

I have stayed at several B & B's in the Yelverton area and had many experiences!! Was welcomed by Steve who, after sorting the necessary paperwork, took me to room 7 on the ground floor and immediately offered a cup of tea.The room is spacious, the bed is unbelievably comfy, the room is warm and there is loads of hot...

Thank you for your review. It's good to hear you were cosy and warm in your room on what was a cold evening. It's always a surprise when we meet a guest who lives near (or in your case in the same road) a friend that lives a couple of hundred miles away! We're glad you enjoyed your brief stay... More

As soon as we arrived we felt at home. We booked a double room and the ground floor which we were shown after the relevant details were given. We asked about getting to Tavistock and were told the bus stop was about 4 mins walk opposite the village shops and it left every half hour. Our room had all the... More

Accommodation is as important as the destination. Having parked up at the Barnabas house, Angela greeted us and was so friendly and polite. We then got welcomed by Steve, who again was so friendly and polite and showed us our room which was perfect. The bed was soooooo cozy and comfy and we had a lovely view of the moors.... More

Barnabas House is a superbly appointed B&B and Angela and Steve are the perfect hosts. Our room was large and airy and the bed very comfortable. The whole place was spotlessly clean,well decorated and furnished. The breakfasts were fantastic with a wide range of options to suit all diets. The owners went out of their way to make us welcome...

Steve welcomed us into Barnabas House after a long journey, we had been jostled around in Plymouth and just needed a bit of calm after the Christmas shopping madness that is Drakes Circus. Our room (No. 7) was warm, spotless and very comfortable. Steve asked if we planned to eat out and he let us know where we could go... More

Everything you could ask for. A warm welcome from Steve as we arrived. Lovely en-suite bedroom with a very comfortable bed. Superb "Full English" breakfast. My wife had the waffle with maple syrup option one morning - wow, it was amazing. All beautifully cooked by Angela. Nothing was too much trouble. A lovely place to stay with such nice owners....

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us, it is much appreciated. We do have a lot of amenities right on our doorstep. Luckily the church doesn't have a bell tower so people aren't woken up every hour by the church bells ringing! Kind regards, Angela and Steve. More
