Peace and quiet and Atlantic views

The park has lovely views to the Atlantic coast, a ruined mansion, large mahogany trees and a chance to see green monkeys (if you are lucky and quiet). This is an ideal place to... read 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.

The park is very simple, the ruins of the great house and the formal garden in front of it is lovely. Not much else there. Great place for a short walk, some pics and a picnic.

The park has lovely views to the Atlantic coast, a ruined mansion, large mahogany trees and a chance to see green monkeys (if you are lucky and quiet). This is an ideal place to take a rest from the sun and relax with a picnic. The guides are informative. Remember to take care not to touch, or sit under the... More

It's a nice place, entry fee is not too high, you can easily reach it by bus and the staff is really addicted to its job, the animals and nature. Also, they answer any question you might have. Important: be quiet - this will increase your chance to meet monkeys outside the maintained area. If you just walk by and... More

Farley Hill is a very nice place to visit for the breathtaking views! The other reviewers are right, there isn't much to do besides admiring the view and the beautiful ruins of what used a mansion. I am fascinated by architecture, including ruins, so I found the visit very enjoyable. There are a lot of tourist attractions in that area,... More

A nice place to wander, popular with the locals at weekends for a picnic. Visit the nearby forest and you are likely to see green monkeys, be careful it is not well signposted in there.

Good views from the hill top but there is rather a melancholy, unloved feel about the place. Maybe that was just because it was deserted when we went. The ruins are quite attractive but there is zero information and nothing to do here beyond enjoying the view.
