Having stayed on south west coast for a week we looked forward to 4 nights inland, for a bit of quieter down time, though we had enjoyed ourselves. It was fantastic and within minutes we both thought "we should have come sooner!"
You must visit their website it is reliable and factual- photo's are bob on!
Peter and Caecile are great hosts, and having spent many years working in UK and travelling have returned to Barbados where Caecile was born. So plenty of tips/info available.
Caecile is a very good cook, breakfasts are included - basically anything you want, and dinner at extra charge, just give her some notice. She will try and meet any preferences you have and produce 2 lovely (large portions) courses Peter is also a great host, and both seem to be up and doing very early, without intruding, or unsettling you - now thats a gift! You may see the grandchildren in passing, and they were so well behaved!
The house and gardens are beautiful, really, every morning I rose early to just sit out and watch the wildlife whilst sipping tea until Mr Sleepyhead got up. The gardens are smallish but look over a forested valley, no noise but what is natural.
The plunge pool was lovely, early morning dip (me) or after a day out and about.
Everywhere is so accessible from here, preferably with your own car, and Peter has one to hire. Or will help you out re transport. We went off in every direction and Holetown and Speightstown, North Point and East coast so easy. We loved having a car, little traffic and if lost direction (often) just stop and ask. Easy access to supermarket for shopping for picnics/gifts etc. It is very handy for Holders where we enjoyed a musical night ,
and of course they know all the local back roads.
Our room was not ensuite, but large with plenty of storage, but we had sole use of a closeby bathroom across the hall - no problem as no one else around, think there may be a small single room available too, often given over to children/singles? If any complaint a new bath/shower would be good, but all worked ok.
All kept VERY clean and comfortable - lots of towels,robes etc. The whole house is so inviting and great terrace outdoor space.
There is a beautiful ensuite room, we were happy with our room, but when - notice WHEN we go again, I would book this one.
Both of your hosts have a lot of experience of their own, of grand hotels around the world,
but seem to know what a real holiday break experience is about , without too "many knobs on"
It is not 5* grandeur with plasma screens and telephones in every room and butlers - It concentrates on being good value in, and for every sense, which means you put a little in too, thats what makes it so special!
Do give it a try.
I would highly recommend High Holdings
It is lovely,comfortable, fantastic location, good quality and thoughtful hosts, just a great place to unwind, and still close to the sea, sights, shopping etc.
