Nice enough place. Well preserved Jacobean House, period furniture etc. Ticket price is now 45 BBD each which is way overpriced, even for Barbados. Rum does look and taste good but as in other reviews, overpriced. I can’t honestly recommend.

We were advised to visit this place but it seemed that the staff were most disinterested. The ticket was very steep for nothing much. they had a few birds in cages in the garden. The rum was over priced. Cannot recommend

Fascinating from the social history point of view and the plans of the current owners. A long drive way of mahogany trees opens up to one of only 3 Jacobean mansions in the caribbean

We had a lovely morning at St Nicholas Abbey. The house is very interesting and the rum works were fascinating. It was a pity the rum produced was so expensive in the shop, but the trip is worthwhile.
