This was a very nice B&B, stayed week end for a wedding. The room was very clean and had a comfortable bed, all things you would need and of a very good quality. Delightful hosts and excellent breakfast, all this and they are new to this business. I expect that they will go from strength to strength and will definitely...

Thank you Ann R for your review. We hope you plan you return visit soon! Glad you enjoyed the scones and banana cake - they always seem to be a hit. You can't beat a homemade cream tea after a long journey! Best regards Angela and Steve.

After a long day travelling i was welcomed to Barnabas house with tea and homemade cake in the homely lounge. My room, on the top floor, had views across the countryside. This older house had character, yet is furnished comfortably with modern bathrooms. My room had excellent tea/coffee making facilities with fresh milk in the silent running fridge. For breakfast...

Thoroughly enjoyed warm hospitality, great vegetarian breakfast, comfortable and spacious room, great views, fast internet and ease of access to Yelverton and moors. Great base to walk to local bar (or even better to go further afield to - Whitchurch Inn and Royal Oak). Clean and fresh and most definitely comfortable.

It was lovely meeting you all and we are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and found it relaxing. In particular it's good to hear that our gluten-free options suited you.
