Colleton Great House Barbados

Colleton Great House

Step back in time into the old-world charm of Colleton Great House, a unique historic guest house located in the tranquil north-west of Barbados.

This heritage home is set in 7 acres of beautiful gardens and exudes a refined elegance that perfectly blends tradition with modern conveniences. The estate dates back to the 1650's and the Plantation Great House now serves as a tasteful guest house for visitors looking to escape the crowds and the crassness of modern hotels.

You can choose to stay either in one of the 3 elegant suites in the Great House, or in the delightful 2-bedroom guest cottage. All the suites offer historic Caribbean furnishings including a four-poster bed. Modern amenities such as air-conditioning and WiFi harmoniously blend with the antiques for a comfortable vacation experience.

Spend your days on-site strolling the gardens, lounging around the outdoor swimming pool, and soaking up the stunning views and tropical sunsets from this elevated location. The tranquil beaches of the north-west coast of the island are just a short walk away. 

Breakfast is served daily, and there are many excellent restaurants in the nearby Speightstown area.

Colleton Great House raises the bar for guest house accommodation in Barbados, with a dedication to excellence and commitment to high standards.
