This opulent old ruin leaves you hungry for more info on the history of what is one of the most elite remains of the ancient plantation system in Barbados. Perhaps some history from the perspective of the plantation slaves would make this an even greater...More

one of our stops on the island bus tour and it was a spectacular view of the Atlantic ocean crashing to shore. There are vendors up there selling their wares and cold drinks, to keep everyone cooled off. A must see view!

Visited this site as part of a wider tour and would not have been my choice for a visit. The grounds are small however the ancient trees were impressive. Well located with good views of the sea and surrounding countryside. Building ruins could not be...More

So being Canadian, we thought a "national park" would be considerably bigger... but this is a relatively small park like one you'd find in a quiet city suburb. Not to take anything away from this place - it's beautiful. The old plantation home was interesting,...More

Beautiful grounds with the ruins of an old plantation home nestled in a beautiful grove of mahogany trees. A wonderful and peaceful place to visit.

With so many glowing reviews we expected much more. I guess the unique feature is the mansion from a bygone era, now in ruins, overgrown with plants and suffering cracks....all behind a security fence. It’s history is much more interesting than the site, however. Originally,...More

Hear me out! This is my third stint here on Barbados (as well as having done a couple of other islands). I just felt that this was just so-real Barbados. Not the slightly-pretentious west-coast beach-scene but real original Barbados. The park costs a very reasonable...More

This is a peaceful place with a very expansive view from the top of the hill. The grounds are nicely kept with grass shaded by casuarinas and picnic tables scattered throughout. There are public restrooms also.

We decided to visit for the history (as a house, film location and national park) and for the views. Had a good chat to two women on the front gate (entrance fee 6$ per car). They had family in the UK near where we live....More
