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.

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.

This is a nice place for a lunch stop, bring you're own though. We were charged $6 Bbds just to bring and park the car, which I think is steep. There's nothing there other than the shell of the old house, large grass and tree...More

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
