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.

We visited here on a local tour two years ago. This time we went on our own and saw so much more. Glad to say the smelly toilets no longer smell. Just like the last visit we were guided to the hill side. We parked our car in the road and got out and looked around. Exploring the outside of... More

This is a great place to stop for a picnic and to let the cobwebs blow away - which is what we did today. The old house and grounds remind you of the history of this island as a colony and you won't find it hard to imagine the surrounding land full of sugar cane and workers as you look... More

Just opposite from the Animal Reserve, this is an excellent place to stop, have a picnic and enjoy all Barbados nature has to offer, great for families and older people alike, again the staff are friendly and inform,, well worth a visit

Farley Hill National Park offers a panoramic view of a broad section of the Barbadian East Coast. During our visit, platforms and stages were being set up on the grounds for an upcoming Reggae Festival. This location is a great treasure for Barbados. However, its potential is not being maximized. What remains of the Great House that stands at the... More

This place is free to enter and is opposite the wildlife reserve and Grenade Hall. I would say that this is a good excursion to combine with the above or simply as a picnic point when crossing from one coast to the other but it would not merit a visit in its own right. The (derelict) Farley Hall has been... More

We hired a Mini Moke for three days and explored the island. We headed for Farley Hill as we had been told that the views were great and we were not disappointed! The East Coast is far more spectacular than the West but seems to have an increasing problem of Sargassum seaweed which has 'washed over' from West Africa.

Good views from this point across to the coast gave a good impression of the interior of Barbados. The gardens are largely pine trees and the derelict house gives an impression of the grand days of yesteryear and the location for the film "Island in the sun" starring Harry Belafonte

We enjoyed a picnic lunch in the shade of huge, old deciduous trees and looked out at the great views from atop this high lookout. Some friendly cats were a nice bonus, but looked to need some feeding.
