Barnabas House


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?

Angela and Steve are passionate about making their guests' stay at Barnabas House the best it can possibly be. Guests are offered tea and homemade cake on arrival - Angela's banana cake is always a hit! They have won awards for their customer service (the ROSE award - Recognition of Service Excellence), and a Breakfast award for using quality local produce and making their own jams and marmalade.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at Barnabas House?

Barnabas House has 6 bedrooms which vary in size - 2 super kings (one of which can be a twin), 3 king-size and 1 family room (king size bed and single bedroom). 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. Each room is named after a local Dartmoor Tor and has great beds, Smart TV, LED demister bathroom mirror, St Kitts luxury toiletries, tea making facilities and a silent-running fridge stocked with fresh milk and water, white cotton linen, bathrobes, and big fluffy towels complete the experience.

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 run this sensational guest house that keeps me coming back. This year was another fine example.

Excellent B&B. Extremely clean. Very welcoming on arrival. Fantastic breakfast. Good sized room, was a little dubious about the silent fridge, but it really was silent! Loved the fresh milk so much better than those awful plastic sealed pots, if only other b&b's could do this. Loved that the...
