Very attractive house and courtyard containing artefacts revealing information of plantation life, includes some interesting unrelated displays of cameras and optometrist equipment, more interesting than it sounds. Stayed for the buffet lunch, very tasty selection of local cuisine. Worth a visit.

We went as part of a Farewell to Barbados tour from a cruise. The house is quite interesting and is part of the National Trust of Barbados. The tour was sold as including a light lunch but we were served a very average afternoon tea

Hi Howiebuoy, As previously stated the house was well below par. I did not know what to expect but I for sure know when there is a 'white elephant' in the room. The house is not shown to a good or great standard. It is All... More
