The Waterwheel is a ruin but you can wander round if you are careful. This is a natural forest setting so you can appreciate the greenery and wildlife.

The waterwheel is all that remains in tact. a tumbledown chimney and a lovely stream all set in a beautiful setting. No restaurant. We only stayed to take photographs. A shame it has been vandalised as it would make a great attraction and keep the history of the island alive.

There is a charred water wheel here that vandals have ruined. We visited 15 years ago and it was lovely. Nothing here

Derelict used to have a restaurant and be run professionally. Now is run down, overgrown, with cows, goats roaming around and you have to watch your step too. Amusing as you can see remnants of a previous party or something. Still worth a walk through.

The place is derelict now, a real shame as the history of the island is kept alive with regard to the forts so well. I think they are government owned while this site is privately owned. It's been said that the place was ransacked while the owners were away, I think they should have employed some security, especially as labor is quite cheap.

We visited twice, once en route to Roxbourough and a second time while searching for geocaches, The first time we took our time to wander around, and were glad we had a 4x4 as the roads are all slippery. The second time we got there the gate was opened and there was a smell of fresh burning so we decided to leave as we weren't sure who was there. We were probably a bit wary as the day before a German couple had been found hacked to death on Tobago.

Worth going if you're in a fairly large group with some larger men, I wouldn't recommend visiting for single travelers or female only groups.

As we walked into the dilapidated building we were surprised to see Christmas decorations still hanging from the ceiling. Fruit bats, disturbed by us, flew around our heads. There were two attendants, one was fast asleep on a chair in the sun and the other told us it would cost $30TT each to look around. I was keen to wander through the grounds as I am sure it would have been a good opportunity to see some of the wild life but the female members of the party were not. The whole place was depressingly run down but I am sure it would have still made an interesting walk.

We visited in January and met the owners. The place was reopened and under restauration. It had been smashed when they lived abroad. Now they gave good tours and served delicious soup. Very special place, well worth the visit.

With a newly fallen tree blocking the entrance to the old plantation the flora around the sight have truly enveloped its previous grandeur to surprisingly mirror a set from Jurassic Park.

Trees grow though walls, bats nest in the ceiling, and floorboards creak as you tentatively explore this natural playground. The waterwheel is impressive but rather treacherous to walk to with gaping holes in the walkway, there is no trace of the museum now, intricate chairs and relics now lie sporadically on the ground rusting a with a green tinge as they slowly become one with nature. Amazing.

Absolutely perfect if you love adventure and witnessing the power of the rainforest juxtaposed to impressive scale of the buildings.

A fantastic trip back in history, and a wonderful peaceful walk through a nature trail after which , Imagine , you are having a nice English tea in a beautiful setting just 1 hour before sunset. You hear the sound of an old bell and hundreds of birds many different species , fly in to feed not only from the food which was put out for them by the people on site but to feed from you as well. from Mott Motts to Humming birds.
