Submit Review

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 are truly passionate about Barnabas House and look forward to welcoming you as a guest soon.

Steve and Angela were the perfect hosts, providing excellent B&B accommodation in Yelverton. Steve welcomed us on arrival and helped us in with luggage and offered bike storage in his shed during our stay. The room and en-suite bathroom were spotlessly clean, the bed very comfy and the B&B's location peaceful and quiet in the evening. Our hosts provided a wholesome and tasty breakfast, both Angela and Steve were there to say 'farewell' on our departure! Lovely hosts, excellent B&B in a great Dartmoor location.

We had a wonderful welcome, and Steve even helped us with our bags. The room was huge, beautiful and so comfortable! The bed was greatlike sleeping in a cloud! And breakfast the next morning was perfect- delicious, locally sourced and generous. We stayed two nights, and wish we could have stayed long! We will be back!

A great discovery. The room was lovely with views over Dartmoor. Nice touches such as fresh milk and water in a silent fridge. The breakfast was delicious, very well cooked and presented and with lots of local produce. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and even took me to another address in the village on a pouring wet morning when I had no transport. I ate dinner at the Rock Inn across the road from Barnabas House on two evenings. The food was excellent, as was the service, in this family-run pub. A very good location for exploring...

We booked this B&B as it was central to a number of walks that we were planning. Great location and a welcome place to end up after hours on Dartmoor. Good roomy parking space. Stayed in the Hound Tor King Size room in a large private bathroom and it was fab. This place is so clean ! Steve and Angela were very welcoming and excellent hosts. Breakfast was superb. Would definitely stay again !

A friendly and welcoming B&B, we were greeted with offers of tea and cake on arrival. Barnabas House has been lovingly restored and maintained, with characterful comfortable rooms and some wonderful pictures by local artists. Breakfast was a treat with locally sourced, tasty bacon and sausages. Ideal for activities on Dartmoor, either heading out from the door or a short drive away. Plymouth is an easy bus ride away, ride the top deck for viewing the moors on the way.

We stayed in the Barnabas House in the area of Dartmoor National Park for 2 nights from 31 August until 2 September in the Burrator and Sharpitor rooms. The stay was simply perfect. Steve and Angela were really hospitable and show the greatest care! They run the B&B with the professional care most hotels can take an example of. Furthermore they do so with a very warm feeling. We definitely recommend this B&B. It is greatly located and if you are into walking, cycling or hiking, the surroundings of Dartmoor National Park have plenty good opti...

We had a lovely stay at this beautiful guest house. The couple are very welcoming, the facilities are so clean (and I'm very picky), the bed was comfy and the breakfast to die for! We would definitely recommend a stay with friends & family. Our family stayed at a popular expensive hotel nearby but we were very pleased to have been stopping at our guesthouse as it was much better

Steve and Angela are very personable & welcoming people who made us feel completely at home throughout our stay. The bedroom we stayed in was a relaxing place with a very comfortable bed and the silent fridge is a bonus. Delicious breakfast and a sign of an excellent B&B when you share with guests the source of your produce. The honesty bar is a lovely idea too.
