    Loved It
    We absolutely loved the flower forest and spent a few hours taking in all the lovely views and flowers. This is a great place to relax as it was not busy. The staff where excellent and the lunch was so so good we even drove the next few days afterwards just for the lunch.

    Just lovely
    Beautiful, peaceful forest gardens. Very well conceived, constructed, planted and maintained. Many specimens clearly labelled for those interested, and for those who just like to wander there are lots of benches and chairs to rest, and some great viewpoints over to the east coast. Owned and run by Earthworks ceramics, with lots of their distinctive designs throughout. For us this is the best place on the island to spend a tranquil morning.

    Lovely setting for a walk among the flora
    We were looking for something to do one day and my son discovered the Flower Forest. We went there directly after visiting Earthworks Pottery and discovered that they are owned by the same people. They aren't right near each other. To get to the site, you have to travel roads that can be steep and windy. We got there just as a big tour group was leaving so we let them depart. We did a tour ourselves so we could take as much time as we wanted to stroll the lovely grounds. There are so many different kinds of flowers and bushes and trees from all over the world with markers that tell what each species is and where it's from. We noticed that there were pottery pieces all over the forest that were made by Earthworks. There were also numerous spots that had benches or chairs if you wanted to stop and sit for awhile with many in the shade. It wasn't so big that you felt tired after walking the grounds. It was just lovely and relaxing.

    Tranquility
    We enjoyed a leisurely walk in the flower forest. So many beautiful flowers, orchids, and trees. The park is well kept and the staff were friendly. It felt cooler in the tropical forest. First we had visited the Earthworks pottery, about 15 minutes away, to buy pottery to bring home. We appreciated how the pottery was incorporated into the flower forest in the pathways, a sculpture, and some of the signs. You can also buy the same pottery in the gift shop.

    Peaceful hour in beautiful surroundings
    We were fortunate to go here when there were few other visitors. We wandered around the garden and did not see or hear anyone. The sounds of the forest were amazing along with the stunning plants. We were told it would be a 35 min walk but we took every path and stopped to take in the views, the sounds and smells. Very reasonably priced and friendly staff. Loved the sinks in the ladies- nice to see earthworks pottery celebrated there.

    Well worth a visit
    This is a beautiful walk on well paved trails. Plenty of places to sit and just soak up nature. There is a fabulous cafe with the best coffee I’ve had in Barbados. Friendly and helpful staff. Definitely worth a visit

A beautiful rainforest garden, with wonderful views overlooking the Scotland district, by the lookout, beautiful floras and faunas, nice and lush big trees, clean and well maintained grounds, nice relaxing spots through the garden, the laminated maps to get you around on your own is a nice touch, no guide is necessary, because this property is also owned by the same owner of Earthworks Pottery a lot of their influences are noticeable throughout the property...I love it!

A lovely location with views over distant valleys. It's a garden with well laid out paths (you get a map on one side and pictures to identify flowers on the other), benches with views, established trees and lovely planting schemes. A stop at the tea room and the fishcakes are great!

My husband and I recently visited the Flower Forest. It has a cute cafe and gift shop. The staff were extremely nice and even let us borrow an umbrella in case the rain started. They give you a map and you head out. I think that perhaps we missed the peak season for a lot of the flowers but of course, that is no one’s fault-just nature! It did have some very pretty areas and the path we took had some peeks of the ocean. There were also some sculptures and benches if you need a rest.
