“Short break in Yelverton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2011

We stayed at Barnabas House for a few days and we had a great time. Our room was large, pleasant and clean with comfortable beds and a large comfy sofa, (such a blessing for tired feet at the end of a busy day) our modern bathroom was spotlessly clean and well equiped.

Breakfast was great, expertly cooked by Ian and served with care and friendly attention by Caroline.
There is also a pub just across the road that does good food in the evening.

Also there is plenty to do and see in the area.

All in all a great place to stay, thanks Ian and Caroline

We arrived at Yelverton after a wet and windy ride over the moors to be greeted by the owner. It was such a relief to find somewhere and to top it off the place was wonderful. Friendly, professional service, rooms very clean. We had a top floor double room which was very comfortable. The local pub is just over the road and a great place to sit and relax over a pint of real ale and very good food. Breakfast at the B&B the following morning was excellent. The owners have a good sized secure bike shed. The cycle down to Plymouth from Yelverton is beautiful so this place is a great place to start or finish the Coast to Coast cycle route (No. 27).

Room Tip: If you want a room with a bath ask when booking - they are available

Thanks very much for taking the trouble to write such a nice review - it certainly was a nasty old day when you called but we're glad we could offer you a warmer welcome than the weather did. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and had a good journey back to Oz.

Very well maintained accommodation in good location. Ideal for walking/cycling the moors and also within 15 mins of Plymouth & Tavistock. Good pub just 5 mins walk away, and other options within a few minutes drive. Friendly hosts and plenty of info available regarding local amenties etc. Our room was very comfortable and quality of furnishings was very good. The reason that we did not give a 5* rating was purely due to the fact that we both felt that our cooked breakfast(s) fell short of our expectations. Still good but did not meet the quality of many of our previous 20+ B & B's that we have stayed in over the past 3 months. However, I would return and would recommend accomodation to others.

Thanks very much for your review, we're glad that you liked your room and overall you enjoyed your stay, but sorry that your breakfast was not as good as you had hoped. Our breakfast quality is obviously very important to us and our guests - we use good quality local ingredients and all breakfasts are cooked to order. However, we are always aiming to improve and would have been very happy to have heard your comments on the day. Thanks again for your review, we hope to see you again in the future.

We recently stayed at this very pleasent bed and breakfast. We stayed in the triple room at the top of the house. The room was extremely clean and nicely furnished, the bathroom was excellent. Breakfast was very good, there was a good choice on offer. The owners were very helpful and attentive. The B&B is well situated in the heart of Yelverton, we found a great pub and chinese nearby to eat in. Tavistock is only a few miles away and offered shopping and resturants. The B&B is close to good walks and was ideally situated to gain access to Dartmoor. We would definately return.

We had a great stay in Yelverton. The family room was big and airy enough for the four of us and the big, brand new private bathroom on the same floor was clomplete with all the toliletteries needed. Everything was spotless clean and the cotton bed linen , together with a really good bedding made the difference when we laid to sleep after long days of country-crossing. A small fridge, (fresh milk in it) and a water boiler with a selection of teas and instant cofee were very handy and mostly appeciated by the whole family.
Barnabas house is a very quiet and you'll be woken up by the birds singing in the garden - or just shut the window if you don't like it.
The owners - Carolyn and Ian - were very attentive, the breakfast they serve deserves a 5 stars rating, the scrambled eggs simply superb.
Yelverton is only a ten minutes drive from Plymouth, so, if you hate seagulls and love the contryside think about this option.
