Nice spot for a picnic. The fauna is beautiful. Good view of the East Coast. The restaurant doesn't appear to be open any more. The ruins are awesome but most of everything else is in a poor condition. Would go back for a planned event.

Not sure how this got so many stars. 1) The burned out ruins of the mansion are behind a fence, marked not safe, so there is no way to actually explore them. 2) There is a view, but you can get the exact same view...More

Farley Hill, being part of the Barbados national park system, does charge a small admittance fee. It's a shame that the mansion burned down but now it's a lovely spot for a picnic. You have your choice of sitting in the sun and looking at...More
