“Best place I know to banish the winter blues”

This is the third year I have been back and I have booked again. Who could not want to wake up in either of the two double bed rooms then go and make a cup of tea and catch the first warm rays of sun on your own spacious veranda as it rises over the golf course you look out upon. Shift your gaze and watch the ships arrive. Plan your day over your breakfast of the fresh melon and coffee that you bought at the local supermarket in Holetown - just three minutes drive away. Carol can provide the car hire and the island is yours. Alternatively lounge around in the six acres of well kept garden and enjoy the pool. There are plenty of places to go and eat within five miles, even one five minutes walk away but I like putting a fat steak on the gas BBQ and eating under the stars. There are three other guest houses in the grounds who share the pool but every one has their private space and can choose to socialise or not. It is quiet, peaceful and very relaxing and you can be assured that Carol, Dick and Lottie will look after your every need. Enjoy.

“Perfect relaxing holiday retreat”
Reviewed 12 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Gingerbread cottage, at Westerlee, is a lovely 'away from it all' Caribbean retreat. Completely relaxing, and quiet, holiday hide-away. A fabulous 'out-of-town' location, with stunning views out to sea and across the 'greens' of Royal Westmorland, but with really easy access to all the amenities of Holetown.
Will definitely be back.

The location is beautiful. its family-friendly and the owners are so friendly and warm. I was here the day my girls and I got dressed for my wedding, the owner daughter came over helped us lock up since it rained and the girls had to lift my dress up so it wouldn't get dirty. My next visit Gingerbread is my first choice for stay.

“Sweet stay in the Gingerbread cootage”
Reviewed 6 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

You can travel all over the world before you'll find owners that make you anymore welcome than Carol, Dick and Lottie....
The cottage is lovely with views over the Westmoreland golf course and to the right .. The carribbean ocean.
You have everything you need in the cottage, it's beautifully clean and if you've forgotten anything .. Just ask Dick
There is a barbecue on you balcony and a wonderful pool 30 steps away. The breeze moves up the hill refreshing the air and making the temperature is fabulous... The rains comes in seconds and disappears the same way.

For peace and quiet... But with access to everywhere by vehicle... Use the in house service to hire... They make it just so easy.

This was my second visit .... It won't be my last

Beautiful gardens.... Fabulous views

“Quiet, sunny, warm, relaxing - wonderful winter break”
Reviewed 29 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A very pleasant experience. The owners do everything to make your stay a pleasant one. The location is quiet with good views over the golf course and the distant sea. Holetown supermarket, shops, restaurants and beach are just three minutes away by car. Up on a hill you catch the breeze, Great pool - what else could you want.

“Home from home”

just returned from a lovely 4 week break in Barbados. We really enjoyed our time in Gingerbread. Carol, Dick and Lottie were perfect hosts always there if you needed them but willing to let you get on with it if that's what you preferred. The cottage itself was lovely to nice bedrooms and a big living area with a well stocked kitchen and cable TV. However the highlight was the veranda where you can sit and what the green monkeys play and look out over Westmoreland gold course to the the sea.
The pool is a good size and never felt crowded even on the odd occasions when all the guests were using it. We meet some lovely people in our time here.You will need a hire car but Carol can arrange that for you which makes it much easy.
Definitely the place to stay if you want independent living in Barbados
