A nice short break

Well…..just like all the other reviews Nicky has accumulated.
Clean, comfortable, good food, and we were well looked after. Fits the bill nicely.


Comfortable country house

We had such a lovely stay @ Harrabeer! It was exactly what we were looking for, a nice quiet and comfortable place to stay after days of exploring. Nicky is a fabulous host, with a warm welcome with a cuppa and biscuits on arrival. Brekkie is hot and fresh in the morning was a big treat also! Highly recommend a stay at this wonderful country house. 5 stars!

Wonderful Stay

We have just spent 2 nights at Harrabeer Country House and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The information provided about the area, things to see and do as well as where to eat was excellent. Nicky is a fabulous host, especially the home cooked breakfasts each morning. If you are thinking about traveling to this area I would recommend staying here. Thank you Nicky!


You can’t wish for moor

Nicky is a wonderful host, competent, welcoming and considerate.
Yelverton is underwhelming, apart from its great Chinese restaurant. As you are right on the Moor, this is no problem at all, enjoy the great landscape!

Recent stay

We had a great two night stay, with our dog. Nicky is an excellent host. Breakfast is exceptional and our self contained accommodation was perfect for two plus a dog. The parking is a real plus.

Visiting Yelverton for a wedding

We had a lovely two night stay. The bedroom was decorated beautifully and very clean.. The breakfast was cooked very well. The house is in a perfect location for exploring Dartmoor. Thank you Nicky


Like a Home from Home

Nicky made us so welcome and spent time with us to ensure we were comfortable in her home. The hospitality was second to none, the room was bright and spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were delicious. We would have no hesitation in recommending staying at the Harrabeer. Country House.

I really looked about before chosing Harrabeer Country House for our anniversary/birthday stay. We were welcomed by Nicky who showed us to our lovely ground floor apartment where there was wine and nibbles waiting. Every evening she made us a delicious cocktail and in the morning an equally delicious breakfast. We couldn’t have wanted for a more beautiful, clean and comfortable place to stay or a more lovely host. Great location as well, walking distance from Yelverton centre and right on the beautiful moors. Perfect stay, thank you

Fabulous apartment

We had four nights in the ground-floor apartment and it was just what we needed. A lovely, comfortable, warm place to come home to after a day exploring the area (great pubs nearby too), with a well-equipped kitchen, a very nice bottle of wine to welcome us when we arrived, and a really comfortable bed. Oh, and a delightful owner too in Nicky, so lots of stars from us.

Amazing Hayloft Apartment and host!

We stayed here on the 4th and 5th of November as a 40th birthday celebration and was blown away by the lovely, warm welcome we received from Nicky. Our hayloft apartment was so beautifully decorated and was immaculately clean. It was full of modern touches but still had the right balance of authentic rustic charm with a calming energy to the place.

When we woke on the Saturday morning in our queen-sized bed, we opened the window fully to look out to the beautiful green fields and listen to the rain whilst still tucked up under the sheets, Such a relaxing and peaceful place.

We went fully self-catering, but our apartment had all the necessary facilities to accommodate that.

Thank you for a lovely stay and for accepting our booking so last minute, you saved our weekend! We would highly recommend Harrabeer Country House.

Lovely, comfy b and b

Nicky is an excellent host – warm, friendly and welcoming, just like the rooms! Our rooms wasn’t large but had everything you could need and the bathroom was clean with an excellent shower. The residents’ lounge and honesty bar were a welcome addition and gave us a lovely place to relax at the end of the day. Breakfasts were great and we loved the blackboard “messages” each day!

A wonderful stay

We have just completed a 5-night stay in the Threshing Barn apartment. and there was absolutely nothing at fault. The apartment was spotlessly clean with a lovely comfortable bed and all essential items for a longer stay were there. Nicky was a delightful host and very accommodating. Without question, she allowed me to charge my plug-in hybrid car each night which was very kind. The apartment is ideally situated for trips into South Dartmoor and Tavistock, just 10 minutes up the road. The Rock Inn in Yelverton does good pub food and is just a 10 minute (uphill walk) but the bonus is it’s all downhill after having a meal and a couple of drinks! We can highly recommend a stay and hope to be back soon.


Beautiful country house hotel, with a warm welcome

The hotel was beautiful and clean. The breakfast was delicious and presented perfectly and again everything was very clean. The landlady was wonderful and we felt at home immediately. The location was great, peaceful yet close to a shop and lovely public house. We would definitely come again, but for longer next time.

Stayed here end of May

Stayed here end of May 2022. Lovely comfortable room, clean and great facilities. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful and Nicky dealt wonderfully with one of us being gluten free and the other vegan. Nothing was too much trouble and Nicky was the perfect host, friendly and chatty but not too intrusive. Would definitely stay here again.

Heather and Keith

I would be more than happy to stay here again

Liked · Very nice small establishment. Excellent breakfast. Lovely helpful hostess.
Disliked · My stay was too short to fully appreciate this lovely establishment.

Quiet convenient location with a friendly and helpful host

There was a wide choice of options for the breakfast and the portions were just right for me. The location was very convenient for getting out on to Dartmoor while still within easy reach of Plymouth

David, June 2022, Booking.com Review

The warm welcome from Nicky

The warm welcome from Nicky on arrival and the fire in the lounge was a great start to our stay. The room was clean with all facilities and a very comfortable bed to help a good night’s sleep. Breakfast was fantastic, absolutely delicious homemade fruit salad followed by a full vege English. Nothing was too much trouble and Nicky even gave us egg in bun for our early morning start on the last day. A very relaxing break and will be back. Thank you Nicky


I felt so welcome!

It was a great stay. I felt so welcome! Nicky has just taken over the running of the Harrabeer (I was only her third guest!) and is obviously keen to maintain its reputation. She was very welcoming and the breakfasts were excellent. I especially liked the way the guests were introduced to each other. During my stay it was like one happy family! Highly recommended!

We will be back.

Nice stay with very warm hosts

Last week we stayed in your accommodation with our French friends. You made us feel very welcome and although we could only stay one night we did have a very nice time.
Thanks. Andy, Eileen, Eric et Guillaine


Great place

We stayed here for two nights. Nicky was so welcoming and the place was very clean. Beautiful house and peaceful garden. Ours was a last minute booking and our room was quite cosy, but sufficient. Great breakfast and great hospitality all round. Would definitely stay here again as Nicky clearly takes great pride and joy in welcoming guests. Nothing is too much trouble.

Would recommend 10/10

Devon Delight. We loved everything about the property and the location. Mine hosts were wonderful and couldn’t do enough for our stay. The bedroom was perfect with a huge en suite also the breakfast room was well spaced out and breakfast selection was very good and cooked to order … Great location to visit local towns and not too far for Paignton, or other English Riviera and Plymouth. Would recommend 10/10

William, October 2021, Booking.com

The new owner was incredibly welcoming and professional

The property is in a lovely quiet secluded spot while enjoying easy access via a lane from the adjacent main road. The new owner was incredibly welcoming and professional … the accommodation was very comfortable and well presented during our visit. The breakfast menu is perfect with probably the best full English I have personally experienced.

A Glorious Country House

A Glorious Country House. A beautiful property in a wonderful part of West Devon. Our second visit this year and again did not disappoint. A plentiful breakfast to set you up for the day, served by your host Nicky. Looking forward to visiting again at Easter 2022.

Jane, September 2021, Booking.com

Very friendly and helpful staff

Very friendly and helpful staff. Brilliant breakfast. Lots of choice and well cooked hot breakfast options, really delicious

Lynne, September 2021, Booking.com

Breakfasts were really exceptional

The Harrabeer Country House Hotel is in an absolutely wonderful location and the hotel itself can only be described as a credit to the lovely new owner Nicky and the obvious effort she’s putting into her new venture. There was absolutely nothing too much trouble for her – and her breakfasts were really exceptional- I’m not the easiest person to cook for being almost vegetarian but she wasn’t fazed at all and my food was fantastic. Nicky was a little apologetic about the room (she said it’s going to be updated soon) but she needn’t have worried – it was fine! The en-suite was massive!
It’s going to be great returning to the hotel in the future and keeping up the friendship (she’s really that nice) with Nicky and seeing her plans come to fruition.
Next time we intend staying closer to the hotel and taking advantage of the local attractions- And there are plenty!
Thanks For making our short stay a superb one.

Nicki is so friendly and welcoming

Nicki is so friendly and welcoming. I immediately felt at home when I arrived. My double room was extremely clean and very comfortable. Plenty of clean towels, toiletries provided, and tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms. The breakfasts are delicious, a good menu offering variety and catering for all tastes …

The perfect Dartmoor getaway

The perfect Dartmoor getaway. Harrabeer Country House is perfectly located for a walking holiday, most of our walks were within a 20min drive. It’s located just down the road from a lovely high street where you can get petrol, coffee, baked goods and of course a wonderful pub meal. The bedroom itself was cosy and comfortable with a kettle and an ensuite with toiletries provided … The breakfast included was fantastic every single day … great conversations and even newspaper to help dry our soaking walking shoes.

Gemma, August 2021, Booking.com

Her thoughtfulness was evident

We have just had our first stay under the new management of the lovely Nicky. She was bubbly, thoughtful and did everything she could to make our stay comfortable. Her thoughtfulness was evident in multiple areas – the special on the breakfast menu, her offer of tea and biscuits on arrival and her service at breakfast. We have booked for a few weeks from now and are looking forward to our next stay!

Very welcoming and great place to stay

My husband and I stayed in room 4 for 2 nights. The room was very clean and exactly what we needed. Nicky and her daughter were lovely and very welcoming. The breakfasts were delicious. All dietary requirements catered for. Would definitely recommend.

Nicky, July 2021, Tripadvisor Review


We have a lovely 2 night stay in July 2021, despite poor weather. Nicky is the new owner, and it’s clear she takes a joy in making her guests welcome – she’s the perfect host. Breakfast was fantastic, and she was more than happy to cater for our difficult diet.

Pete C. July 2021 Tripadvisor Review

In a perfect location

A quiet, idyllic property in the countryside of Dartmoor but in a perfect location for the local amenities nearby, shop, cafe, public house, post office, takeaways in Yelverton. The rooms are lovely, spotlessly clean and the bed was comfortable for a good night’s sleep after a long journey. The breakfast menu is varied and well presented with daily specials available. Nicky the new owner was very welcoming and hospitable.

Philip, July 2021, Booking.com

I can strongly recommend

I can strongly recommend the Harrabeer Country House for the excellent location, the comfort of the rooms, and the excellent breakfast alone. However, the main reason I would strongly recommend the property is the owner Nicky. She provided an excellent service and really could not do enough for us. She is very friendly and cooks a wonderful breakfast.

Kevin, June 2021, Booking.com

Breakfast was superb

This was our wedding anniversary stay … roses in room … then invited to a glass of bubbles – bless. Breakfast was superb cooked to order and fresh as a daisy … perfect fruit salad … and cooked breakfast with full choice and daily specials …. individual breakfast menu filled in the day before … so in the morning after Nicky greets you let the feast begin … cooked to perfection !!!
