This place is well worth a visit despite the Bd$46pp entry fee. The highlights were the wonderful 1930's restored film of life on the plantation and seeing the sugar cane go through the press. Nice coffee and cookies too! Only two rooms of the house...More

The Entrance fee is too high for what you get! We expected to be able to get access to the whole old house but only two rooms on the first floor were open for public. Beautiful small garden though!

We visited St. Nicholas Abbey during our recent trip to Barbados because we love rum and wanted to learn more about the St. Nicholas Abbey rums. It was a pretty drive out to the historic plantation (we saw wild monkeys on the way there!), and...More

St. Nicholas Abbey is a beautiful 1660 former plantation house. There are some very unique antiques in the abbey. The rum distillery is quite interesting as well. The view from Cherry Tree Hill is a must see.
