Owner description: Wallblake House, built in 1787, is the oldest and only surviving plantation house on Anguilla. It is one of the few plantation houses in the Caribbean where the entire complex of buildings including the kitchen, stable and workers quarters have survived virtually intact. The Wallblake House Trust is maintaining the complex so that it may thrive as a center for cultural, social and educational events for the entire island community.

A nice place to view a house and churches with great historical significance and get those unique photos to capture your Anguilla memories.

“lonesome building in the valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

After visiting the salt pond, I passed b this building, i guess a piece of Anguilla's history, there was no one on site for a tour and the building was closed, seems to be kept up in appearance, not too far from this building is a lovely flower shop and garden, a must see.

“Best historic site on Anguilla”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

I should have liked to give this more stars, as it's a fascinating building, but on the day we visited staff were setting up an exhibition - we're grateful we were allowed to see round, but we didn't get the guided tour which is really needed as there is no on-site interpretation.

“well preserved plantation house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2008

Trip advisers commentary sums up the place perfectly, but felt i should mention it can be found on the edge of The Valley, which is Anguilla's capital, blink and you will miss it but is just by the small roundabout which has a facility to tell the time and temperature (when working) there is adequate space for parking, and anytime is good to go there if you have not seen a plantion house before and wanted to see what life was like at the time as never any queue's which is one reason why i love Anguilla so much, no Cruise ships dumping thousands of people off each day, so take in at your leisure, and definitly well maintained!
