So being Canadian, we thought a "national park" would be considerably bigger... but this is a relatively small park like one you'd find in a quiet city suburb. Not to take anything away from this place - it's beautiful. The old plantation home was interesting,...More

Beautiful grounds with the ruins of an old plantation home nestled in a beautiful grove of mahogany trees. A wonderful and peaceful place to visit.

With so many glowing reviews we expected much more. I guess the unique feature is the mansion from a bygone era, now in ruins, overgrown with plants and suffering cracks....all behind a security fence. It’s history is much more interesting than the site, however. Originally,...More

Hear me out! This is my third stint here on Barbados (as well as having done a couple of other islands). I just felt that this was just so-real Barbados. Not the slightly-pretentious west-coast beach-scene but real original Barbados. The park costs a very reasonable...More

This is a peaceful place with a very expansive view from the top of the hill. The grounds are nicely kept with grass shaded by casuarinas and picnic tables scattered throughout. There are public restrooms also.

We decided to visit for the history (as a house, film location and national park) and for the views. Had a good chat to two women on the front gate (entrance fee 6$ per car). They had family in the UK near where we live....More

Having so many stars I was expecting more from this place. There is a park where you can sit and relax, but that's all. Ruins are behind the face, so you can't explore or get nice photo. There is the view, but you can get...More

This place is nice for a picnic or just to explore. It's sooooo breezy, I was tempted to just let the breeze blow me over and take a nap. The old plantation house takes you back in history and the views are breathtaking.
