“Great stay!!”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

A most sincere welcome from Carolyn and Ian on arrival which made us feel at home. Wonderful room complete with fresh milk and tea/coffee facility. The breakfasts were really outstanding in a warm, friendly atmosphere. We stayed for a week and could have stayed forever!!!!!!
The recommendations for eating, sightseeing and walking were also most welcome.
Thank you both so much for making our vacation so unforgettable.

This was a last minute booking for me, but I'm so pleased I found this place. Lovely, large, clean rooms, extremely warm welcome, more of a home-from-home than a B&B. Breakfast was lovely, a large choice to suit every taste. I will definitely come back here, whether for business or pleasure

Room Tip: I stayed in room 3 at the top of the house, lovely views across the open countryside and the sun set...

Warm welcome .... So much so Carolyn greeted me from under an umbrella in the car park in pouring rain!! And I was upgraded to garden room - I'm truly grateful - made a real difference being able to look out onto a 'view' albeit a wet one!! And thank you for being so friendly and accommodating - getting up especially early to do breakfast for me ..... It's the little touches like that which make all the difference ..... Thank you.

We stayed here for 1 night. The room and bathroom were huge for a B&B and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. We will be staying here again for more than 1 night when our summer arrives to go on great walks. There is also a great pub for food just a few minuets across the green which was recommended by the B&B hosts.

We stayed for three nights in two of the rooms. Extremely enjoyable visit, with hosts being more than welcoming. The only downside was that the beds were a little too springy, which isn't good for those suffering from back problems.

Thanks very much for your kind review, we really enjoyed meeting you all and are glad you had an good stay, despite the somewhat freezy weather. Sorry that you found the bed in room 7 unsuitable for your back, but the good news is that we are just about to replace it with a new kingsize bed. We are always very happy to try and advise a choice of room if we know your needs at time of booking. We would love to see you again if you decide to see more of Dartmoor in the future, thanks again, Carolyn & Ian

A very comfortable and pleasant stay. Lovely room, good breakfast. So much nicer than soulless hotel we stayed in on the way down to Devon. Very relaxing break. Owners were very pleasant and helpful. The silent running fridge was a bonus. Would stay again.

Our most recent visit for five nights after Christmas was the third time we've stayed at the Barnabas House. This time was different as we booked the whole house for friends and relatives attending a wedding. Carolyn deals with the admin with great efficiency; booking details were confirmed by email and room allocations adjusted to suit so that elderly friends could have a comfortable stay without coping with stairs. The welcome is always friendly with Ian on hand to carry the luggage. All our friends and relatives commented on how comfortable and well equipped their rooms were. The breakfast choice is outstanding with a wide choice of fresh and dried fruit, cereals, juices and an excellent 'full English' cooked by Ian and served professionally by Carolyn. We will certainly stay again when visiting the area and can recommend the Barnabas House without reservation.

Room Tip: Look at the helpful photos on the web site.
