Property description

High on a cliff overlooking the sea, Essex Cottage commands one of Tobago’s finest views of the Caribbean in one direction and the Rain Forrest Reserve in the other. Just a short walk from the beach in the picturesque fishing village of Parlatuvier, this area is considered one of the loveliest on the island. Guests can enjoy the mesmerizing crashing of waves against the rocks, daily migrations of frigate birds as they cruise along the coast, or listen to the cries of the cocricos, chatter of the parrots, and songs of other island birds. The property, shared with Gloucester Place Guest House, is bounded by a river on one side and the sea on the other. It contains an infinity edge pool overlooking the sea, gardens that include mature coconut palms, mango and other fruit trees, and lots of banana plants. Paths lead along the hillside past the fruit trees, down to Creighton River and our own water fall and swimming hole. The Main Ridge Forest trail is just 10 minutes away.

Car: Recommended

Near the best beaches on the island and only minutes from the Main Ridge Forest Reserve, guests at Gloucester Place & Essex Cottage can enjoy bathing, snorkeling, trekking, bird watching and exploring the most beautiful area on the island. The village is known for its fishing and has changed little over the last 40 years. It is located between the island's world class scuba diving sites. Rest, read, relax and enjoy the view, sunbathe by the pool, or walk along the rivers to hidden water falls and forest glens. Meet the fishermen on the jetty when they come in with their catch, or try fishing yourself from a local pirogue or at the end of the jetty at sunset.
