Farmers cottage description
Overlooking the rural countryside of Barbados. This is a charming cottage built in traditional chattel house style with all the modern amenities.
It was originally built by my parent in laws to be close to family but still be far enough away to allow privacy.
Being twelve minutes to Holetown and tranquil beaches of the West Coast. Heron Bay Beach and Paynes Bay are ideal for swimming with children and Folkstone Marine Park for snorkeling on a shallow wreck or just around the bay.
Bombas Beach Bar and Zaccios Beach Bar are great for lunch, sunbathing or swimming and provide a relaxed atmosphere to watch the sunset while sipping a cooling rum punch.
Lime Grove Lifestyle centre also provides a cinema, duty free shopping and restaurants.
These are just a few suggestions for things to do on The West Coast and the Holetown area just 12 minutes away.
Taxi to Holetown from the cottage is approximately US$12.50 one way.
Taxi from the airport is about 35 minutes and an airport taxi will charge US$32.00 for a couple. For larger groups of two couples or more a van will be required and the charge is around US$49.00.
Some of the worlds best restaurants are on hand in Holetown for fine dining but if it is the local experience you would like there are several very good local 'rum shops' that we would be happy to recommend for your entertainment or dining.
For those nature lovers who enjoy long walks on the beach you must visit the East Coast for it's rugged beauty. Again there are several restaurants and rum shops for you to choose from. But if you prefer to take a cooler, umbrella and chairs and explore for your self we can provide them.
Harrison Cave and Welchman Hall Gully, The Flower Forest and Highland Tours are all magnificent attractions and are within ten minutes from The Garden Cottage.
The location makes this cottage very versatile being right between the East and the West coasts of Barbados.
This is a perfect home away from home for those interested in nature and want to relax.
This is an open plan cottage in an elevated and cool location, traditional style with all modern amenities. A large patio nestled in the trees allows views over the West Coast and bulls grazing in the fields below. Green monkeys are often seen jumping from tree to tree successfully tasting the many fruits in the garden.
There are three bedrooms and one shower room. Bedroom 1 has a queen size bed, bedroom 2 a full size bed and bedroom 3 ( small & cozy) has a single bed at 3ft 6in.
Dishwasher, fridge with ice maker, electric oven and gas top and full utensils along with a washing machine and dryer. TV with local station, DVD and CD player are supplied along with telephone and internet.
It would be necessary to rent a vehicle to get around. If you need any help with this we would be happy to advise.

- 40 Minutes from the airport and beaches no more than 15 minutes away. Just below Mount Hilaby the highest point on the Island of Barbados. This is a very lush and green location and cool breezes pass through. This area often is said to be comparable to the English countryside with it rolling hills around....moreless

Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: We are a family of five with three boys. We are all born in the Caribbean but have British roots. I am a photographer and concentrate on wedding and portraits here in Barbados and Tony manages his own Marine Construction business. Our son Komo works along side him, Daniel is at college in England and Charles is at a local secondary school.
Why the Owner Chose Farmers:
We were attracted to our property because of it's quiet location and proximity to amenities. We wanted to be away from the busy life but close enough to enjoy it when we choose.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The garden and trees where what attracted us mostly to our house. We loved the fact that there is a quiet cart road where the boys could ride their bikes and later on drive their go-cart. Also there is a beautiful gully that is accessible via the cart road which we have enjoyed walking to on many evenings.
