Beautiful place, lovely gardens, interesting history. The batik demo and shop was a highlight. It's a short walk over to the rum distillery. We spent 2 hours total.

The grounds are pretty, and I appreciate the artistry that goes into hand-dying fabrics. Having said that, there really isn’t a lot to see here.

You enter through a small yard, and go into a building. In the first room you’re shown samples and photos of the process.

After that, it’s all gift shop for another 2-3 rooms. You can buy the hand-dyed fabrics and some other trinkets, all of which are terribly overpriced.

Then you leave through the same yard you entered.

Not really worth the effort.

I absolutely love the natural beauty at Romney Manor which is the home of Caribelle Batik. The garden is amazing. The store is a must visit....Upon entry it offers a small demonstration of the Batik making process then you shop Batik everything from gifts, souvenirs even household items. Simply amazing!!!

Gorgeous gardens hidden away! We spent about 1 hour here just strolling around and taking in the beauty!

All staff were very friendly and nice to learn about culture and history whilst taking in the views.

We are travelling with our toddler and it is v child friendly.

Fascinating history from 1600’s includes slave trading and then freeing them. Ownership of the plantation went from Carib Indian (Kalinago) chief Tegereman to Sam Jefferson, whose lineage includes Thomas Jefferson (3rd US president) to British Lord Romney. There’s also the huge Saman tree from 1617, the Manor House from 1628 and the Bell Tower from 1834. The Shop, Fountain and Bar complete the picture. Serene and picturesque gardens with a few benches for those to drink in the impressive scenery in that warm tropical glow.

A beautiful old manor house and gardens right beside the ruins of a former sugar plantation. The highlight is the Batik demonstration and shop.

This is an easy excursion from Basseterre, around at the half way from the capital to Brimstone fortress.
By the premises entrance is a big parking lot. Entry fee is only 3$, kids are free.
House in vivid colors is really beautiful, but the gardens are stunning.
Inside the house they explain the batik process and there's a store with pretty high prices.
The visit will consume only around half an hour of your time and is very cheap.

You don't need long to see the beautiful grounds, stunning view and interesting batik technique, but it is well worth going! The batiks are gorgeous--I'm having a hard time giving up the ones I purchased for gifts!
