Farley Hill, because of its cooling tree cover, well maintained property, and eye-catching scenery, is well loved in Barbados for special events and even just a picnic with family and friends. Guests staying on the island will find this a nice place to relax and explore some historic ruins.

Sloping hills, tall, strong trees, and of course, the Farley Hill Great House ruins typify this popular picnic spot.

Set on the 17 acre park guests will find picnic grounds, a playground for children, rentable tents, and the Farley Hill Great House. The Farley Hill Great House is a landmark in its own right, built at the turn of the 19th century, and showcasing the opulent life style of then plantation owners.


Farley Hill is located in the heart of St. Andrew Parish, in the general vicinity of Bawdens; it's 3.9 miles to the east of Speightstown.
