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.

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

A beautiful house with extensive parkland surrounding. The problem is according to our guide the house was destroyed by fire about fifty years ago. Now back.ing derelict. Needs some money spent on restoration.
