  • Terrific place. What a fantastic garden. Cool under the trees on a hot day. Monkeys too! The lady who runs the garden is especially welcoming. Thank you.
  • These gardens are wonderfully located in Bathsheba. Went on a Sunday to avoid the larger crowds. Only 4-5 passenger vehicles present when we arrived. Felt as if the whole place was ours. Recommend wearing shoes and avoiding flip-flops. The staff seemed passionate about explaining about the Bannochie's(original owners). Worth visiting multiple times.
  • Lovely, rich gardens with a vast collection. Can feel the soul of the creation in this garden. The staff is comfortable and kind. They made me feel warm and welcome, as if coming home into a new family. I will return whenever I visit Barbados again.
  • Sharon & Judith are what gives life to this paradise of a botanical garden. They are so pleasant that I want to come back again & again just to be able to chat with them some more over a cup of their tasty afternoon tea.
  • We loved this place because of it's outstanding beauty, and just as importantly it's small dedicated staff.
