The location of Barnabas House is excellent with easy access to the moors and also for local amenities including meals and supplies. The property was excellent for cleanliness and the owners friendly and helpful. The bed was extremely comfortable with good en-suite facilities and breakfasts were excellent

All was perfect: location, room, fantastic breakfast and friendly host. Highly recommended for exploring Dartmoor national park but also for a break in a fantastic place to stay. Try banana's cake from breakfast buffet. Simply the best.

Steve and Angela are the perfect hosts, the rooms are comfortable, the food is great and the location is quiet yet has good for access to the Moors and Plymouth. As a result whenever we are in South Devon we try and stay at Barnabas House.

Our room (5) was of the highest quality and included the luxurious addition of a chaise longue and an extra bedroom. The hosts were welcoming (cream tea in the courtyard on arrival) and helpful, and Steve, being a keen cyclist himself, adjusted our bikes for us and offered great advice on where to cycle. The bed was very comfortable and...

I have been staying at Barnabas House for many years and have never been disappointed. The recent change of ownership to Steve and Angela has shown a significant improvement in the small things that make a big difference. They are so welcoming as nothing is too much trouble. Excellent Hospitality all round.
