We were on a tour to take us there. It took more than an hour negotiating 1,000's curves in a small non very comfortable bus. The estate is run down; the guide told us it was mis-managed after the old generation died and current owners are not interested in this venture. Pity.. It is not a working place. They have... More

Stoped on a cruise ship tour Bus the local worker telling us about all the spices grown on the island and uses was great. Especially the tactile nature of the tour where you were able to touch and smell the products. I am not interested in spices but was captivated by the demonstration.

Took Bus #5 to Gouyave to see the Nutmeg Processing Station, then walked downhill 15 minutes to the road for this spice "estate." Had a personal very informative tour for 5 USD per person, walked back out to the main road and caught the #5 bus back to St. George's. This is not fancy at all, it's not Disney, it's... More

We made a short stop here on a cruise tour. Our guide showed us various spices and told us about them. It was interesting seeing, smelling and hearing about the spices grown on the island. We also learned about how they grew and processed cocoa. There is also a small stand that sells various products. One last thing........they do have... More

This was the fourth stop of our island tour in Grenada. The place provided a short and informative demonstration of spice processing. Here you'll be able to see how different spices are being processed. They also have a small stand where you can buy spices to take home. You can see people racking/drying cocoa seeds in traditional means outside the... More

My family visited this site as part of an island tour provided by Mr Edwin Frank. The place is a bit run down, but we got a short but informative presentation on all the different sort of spices that used to be processed there (or still are?) by one of the staff.

We were on a tour of the island and our guide brought us here. It is an old plantation that closed about 100 years ago which is now used to show how spices were processed here years ago. We were fascinated with the many uses of the various nuts and leaves. There is no fee to visit the estate.

Went here as part of a tour. It's a barely operational plantation saw some cocoa beans drying and the talk on the different crops was interesting but you are better off going to the Belmont Estate. This said nice people very friendly.

The Dougaldston Estate is up a bumpy track a little distance inland from the nutmeg processing plant at Gouave. You need transport to get there, or go on an organised tour with Sunsation or one of the other operators. It's a bit like entering a forgotten world with its tumbledown walls, ramshackle buildings and prolific vegetation growing over everything. You'll... More

It's a peaceful setting in the countryside. There are tours, demonstrations and spices for sale. Photo-ops abound.
