Just the shell of a 19th century house surrounded by ugly security fencing in some grounds with a kids playground and a shabby picnic spot. It may be worth stopping for 5 mins to see the view over the east coast, but that's about it.

This national park is high up on a hill with stunning views. There is a small entrance fee which it is worth the price. It is a peaceful place covered in tall trees. The views of the east coast is commanding. It is a bit cooler up there than it is at the beach. There is an interesting old plantation... More

Only 3.50 Barbados dollars to enter, approx £1.10. Old derelict plantation house with spectacular views of the island from the bandstand. There are toilet and restaurant facilities at the park along with a large playground. It does need some funding for re-modernisation BUT if you're looking for a low key place where local people go for picnics and lunch, then... More

3.50 BDS to park the car well worth it to view the Stunning views of Island of Barbados in the St Andrews Parish looking down the East Coast towards Bathsheba, Dramatic and beautiful coastline.

Farley hill is one of the highest points of Barbados and offers commanding views of the east coast including chalkey mount. It is breezy, shady with benches dotted around so you can sit and enjoy the view. There is a carpark and play area away from the trees. There are toilets but the cafe was closed when we visited.

I knew nothing about this place until a Bajan friend told me about it and gave me a brief history so my husband and I decided to visit. When we arrived I was surprised to find that there was no entrance fee just a parking fee of $3.50 BDS. At around £1.20 this level of value is practically unheard of... More

Beautiful place. Wonderful views of the island. Pity that the old ruined house doesn't have a board explaining the history and a picture of the original building. Toilets were shut.
