Tour was interesting and the view fantastic. Learned some history of this plantation that I'd not heard of before.

This is a nice little park with great views of the rugged eastern coastline of Barbados, its just too bad that the building is now fenced off. I understand that the old building isn't very safe anymore, however it would have been fun to really explore the structure and get some great photos.

That said, it's still a nice site and a good place for a walk. With the tree-lined road, the entrance is impressive, and there's a massive sandbox tree on the grounds. On a nice day, you can sit on the bench and really take-in the views of the island!

Ruins of a mansion from 1800 with a beautiful park around it. There is a fence around the building, so you can't get near it. Seems like it needs some TLC. Looks like there was once a gift shop, but that seems long gone. There is a small fee to drive in. Must have been something back in its day. Grounds could use some TLC as well. Lots of picnic tables and shade. There is a nice view out toward the coastline up by the gazebo.

Ok let's say it straight away, this is not a lively place with lots to do. But if like us you want somewhere a bit cooler for a picnic this is ideal. Perched on the top of a hill it has a constant cool breeze and lots of shade from the massive trees. The history is interesting and the attendant lent us a little book on it. Not sure what would have happened if someone else had arrived as I think they only had one. There is a children's play area but after your picnic you can pop across the road and visit the Wildlife park and Gunners Hill signal tower. Make sure you're there by 2 o'clock as that's feeding time.

There is a fee to get in ($6 BDD for a car) the park. Minimal. Beautiful mahogany trees and spacious grounds. Views are beautiful! Perfect place for formal pictures, a wedding party, a picnic, family, etc. I saw some children playing hid and go seek in the trees! The plantation house that once stood is fenced off due to that it is has been overtaken by nature and is beautiful! There is also a room for rent there which I think would be stunning for a wedding! We spent maybe a half hour there exploring, but it was worth it!

We saw Farley Hill as part of an island tour. It was interesting to see the extent of a great house of the island - so much bigger than, say, Sunbury Plantation House - but now burnt out, with high fences blocking entry to the ruin. In its heyday it must have been magnificent. Surprisingly the house did not take advantage of the spectacular view 50 yards up the hill over the east of the island and Scotland district. The park was empty when we were there and so we were able to wander at will through the mahogany grove. There were toilets but no cafe or shop.

We stopped off her but really there was little to see. In the centre of the park is a ruin of a building with trees growing through it. There is a nice view at the top of the park overlooking the sea. We had a short wander through the woods but saw very little. The charge to get in for s car was 6 B$

The landscape and scenery (overlooking the Atlantic ocean) and great views along the eastern coast of Barbados, some of which are still covered by sugar cane (which was been burnt off whilst visiting the park). Sugar cane was the island's main crop during its colonial period.
Farley Hill house, formerly a mansion is now in ruins, tucked away amongst mahogany trees high on a hill. This is a nice setting and relaxing place. If doing an Island tour of Barbados call in.

Amazing views of the island from the hill. Such great history about the house that was once a grand sight on the property. Great place for a quiet, breezy, family picnic.

Really not that much to do or see here.. Very tired and run down. Could do with a make over massively.
The one good point was the view from the top of the park, i believe this is one of the highest points on the island.
