Barnabas House is an Edwardian Villa set on a quiet lane on the western edge of Dartmoor yet within a few minutes walk of the village. This award-winning B&B is perfectly located for exploring Dartmoor, the Tamar Valley, Devon, and Cornwall. Excellent walking and cycling with Drake's Trail on the doorstep.
What makes a stay at Barnabas House unique?

All bedrooms have showers, and 2 also have baths. They all have something unique to offer - for example, the ground floor bedroom has its own private garden.

Guests have full use of the guest lounge which has an honesty bar, log burner, plenty of books/games to browse/play, and a Nespresso coffee machine with a selection of complimentary pods.
What can guests enjoy when staying in the Yelverton area?
Yelverton is a lovely village offering local amenities, yet it is just 5 miles to Tavistock and 10 miles to Plymouth. Road, rail and bus links are superb. The village has a good food pub just a 4-minute walk away, 2 cafes, butcher, a delicatessen selling local produce, bicycle rental, hairdressers/beauty salon, a post office/petrol station, and a mini-market. Princetown - the highest point of Dartmoor - is just 6 miles away which has a lot on offer including the visitor's centre, brewery, and museum. Guests can walk the West Devon Way which comes through Yelverton, or cycle Drake's Trail which is part of Route 27, and there are many National Trust properties close by.
Where can guests enjoy food and drink?
A fabulous breakfast is served each morning. Meat comes from the village butcher, eggs and bread are delivered by local villages and jams and marmalade are homemade. The local pub serves food, and there are many independent pubs/restaurants within a couple of miles. Tavistock and Plymouth also provide Michelin starred restaurants. A list of local pubs/restaurants will be sent to you with your booking confirmation as it is always best to book a table during busy periods.
Angela and Steve are truly passionate about Barnabas House and look forward to welcoming you as a guest soon.
